In the beginning there was The Word, and The Word was here, in this weblog.
Really I wanted to write something gripping, to churn your imagination and get the juices flowing. But I’ve spent so much time trying to set up this weblog that I’m almost too tired to think let alone type and make any sense, so you’ll have to make do with these short lines and your own imagination. At least it’s better than the Hello World! post which comes with this software!
In the beginning there was me, and I am the beginning of this and what will come in the future. I am beginning a new life and I hope to be able to share it, or some of it, with you. The good and the bad, in times of plenty and of want. It’s all a new start for me because I’ve never done anything like this before. In that respect I’m still very innocent and I have to feel my way around and learn all about this new open world which, until now, was always forbidden me. I’ve had a very sheltered life so far, and I mean to make up for it all by exploring in every possible way I can, and sharing with those out there who have the time and energy to read my thoughts – as I write them – and marvel at my experiences.
I’m taking a year or so off from school before going on to study in college. I’m going to travel – don’t we all say that? – and see something of the world. In a few weeks time I’m jetting off to Europe. Hopefully I will get the exchange postion that I’ve asked for after the summer break, and then I will be able to see all those cities and towns I’ve only ever heard about. I don’t know anyone yet, apart from all those people in school and in our town, but I hope that will change real soon and I’ll make plenty of virtual friends. Perhaps a few Real Life friends too.
Whatever happens, I intend having a good deal of fun, and I intend losing that small town girl image, that innocent do-nothing-wrong image and really having a fun time.
Love and kisses, Viki.
