Hi! This is my first time starting a blog seeming as I read a hundred books about girls writing blogs and I thought like 'hey, why not?' Mum HAD bought me a diary once and I'd only been able to write about fifteen words till I got bored of it. On the other hand, procrastinating to write a journal/blog is actually neat. I get to take pictures of people, see the fun side of my boring life and probably, hopefully, make others see the real me too. I know it sounds too dreamy but I'm a girl who has dealt with this her entire, somewhat social life. Like how I wander why they put pineapple on pizza even though others aren't Hawaiian -- I'm not judging but pineapple on cheese makes the rest of my bones shiver that I'd wish I'd eat wet grass and drink salty tea water for the rest of my life! My family: The busy mum with the most gorgeous hair and late schedules to time, The unpredictable dad, you could find chocolate in your room without even noticing and the cheeky, loud-mouth little sister, adorably cute but annoying as well in a cute way though. And where do I stand out? A teenager in a family who is forbidden to touch a single pound, wander out the house on her own and even be trusted to take her completed homework without a single check (ok, dad does the same thing but still!) I might as well be down in a fish pond, like Ariel was in before she gave up her tail for these weak, human legs that mostly collapse after a two-hour long mile to Hove. I guess this is all I had to write; I'll probably post more later. ~Genny Manners
Btw: No, my name doesn't need the "J" it starts with a "G" as my mum tells me.
