first post ever?!

Hey guys and gals,

I’m officially writing my first ever blog for this site!!!

Right now I am freaking out and racking my brain at what I want this post to be about. While I have so many ideas, this post is going to be about leading up to creating this blog, why I did it and why I am so scared about posting this!

As Vanessa Hudgens apparently once said “I just love expanding my horizons and growing as an artist. The only way you get to do that is by doing something that scares you or takes you out of your comfort zones.” So I’m taking this advice and well I created this blog.

I was inspired by the handful of girls that have a blog or YouTube channel or Instagram page on girls advice and the many more considering creating one. A few days ago an Instagram page inspired me to try creating a blog/Instagram page.

I started this blog on a Sunday exactly two weeks from this being posted but it took me until Tuesday to write this post. I am the usual person to think ahead to this glorious future where I have heaps of readers and followers and my page is sorta known and has like 1 thousand followers, I’m going to try and not do that this time.

The scary thing is that only probably ten people are going to read this I know at least two of my friends will laugh about this behind my back and probably after a few weeks this will die down, because lets face it I have trouble committing to things. I’m even more nervous about the criticism like as much as I will need it to grow and create better more exciting blogs I feel that tomorrow at school, some guy I hardly know will address my blog and it will become a laughing-stock.

So I’m trying to say f*ck you to anxiety and just do it and hope for the best, thankyou to the support I have already received from friends and I hope this project turns out alright.

Transforming: Tasha

Hey guys and gals,

So for a while now I’ve been thinking about this super fun and cool project and it’s finally in action and before you start saying negative things let me explain.

One of my closest friends who means the world to me is like most girls and deals with confidence issues, bullying and has a hard life in general so I thought I would take it upon myself to help!

My mission: transform my friend Tasha * emotionally more than physically and try to love herself just a little more and hopefully be able to see what I see.

Our plan: List everything Tasha feels is ‘wrong’ with her and we will target each thing as we go, documenting as we go!

This series isn’t just about Tasha and her feeling confident but it’s about an introvert wanting to come out of her shell and with the hope of a somewhat extrovert maybe it will help.

I asked Tasha before we start the series what she wanted to achieve by the end of this, her response was “I don’t really know, I want to be confident and I want to feel good in my own skin. I don’t want to be scared to do what I want and be who I want to be I guess.”

So watch this space as every week/2 weeks there will be an update!
