Get To Know Me Better!

Hiya all,

I often think that there’s SO much my blogging friends don’t know about me. Oh sure, they know all about my ideas for world change and my deepest inner struggles, but not much about, well, me πŸ™‚ So today I’ve decided that I’m going to tell you guys a lot more about myself. Here goes!

 

Let’s start with the basics, shall we? My name is Gracie and I am 14 years old.Β  At the moment I live in a van on a farm in *looks out of window* rainy, old England.

I am a teenager with an infinite mess of feelings, dreams, plans and struggles.Β I am a writer, a spoken word poet, a teacher, a blogger (obviously) and someone who loves baking, cooking and being with others. I am studying socio-anthropology (the social study of humanity) as well as doing yoga, film-making and Italian.Β 

I also am home-educated and I love it! I get to make decisions about what’s relevant to my life and my future and study what I’m passionate about.

My greatest dream is to be able to help others, but I often feel unbelievably helpless and wonder if I’m more naive than anything else? I live for those crazy of moments of abandon that make me feel like summer, songs that inspire rebellion, campfire smoke settling on my clothes,Β  sunsets and the times where my words fly from my heart and through my lips like it is their very purpose to change the world.

I get lonely, I get discontent, I get anxious and worried and I can’t bear to not know what’s happening, but I believe that this is the right path for me.

My family lives a very unusual lifestyle. Ever since I was a very small child, my parents have tried to teach me and my siblings to help others when we can, to challenge the way our modern society works, to make a difference and make a change, to be ourselves and be honest. Through the life we live, we hope to practice all these things.

*casually quotes my about page* lol

I have traveled a lot in the UK. In fact, my family and I are about to leave everything familiar behind and go off traveling permanently, perhaps even around Europe and beyond. My Dad has built a tiny home on the back of a vintage truck and we are going to live on the road, making the statement that alternative living is possible for other families, that there is another way to live your life in our crazy, messed-up world. We are advocates for positive change within our society.

I don’t know what the future holds…..

I obviously can’t sum up my whole being in just this one post, but I hope you’ve got to know me a bit better and enjoyed reading this. Feel free to do the same if you think your readers could benefit from getting to know you more!

I want to make my posts a bit more based around my life and a bit more personal. Here are a few ideas I’ve had, please vote for your (personal) favourite. See what I did there? XD

See ya guys later! Don’t forget to vote!

  2. Self awareness and self-realizations are the biggest things we aim to achieve in our life, and at 14, I believe, you’ve already succeeded in that. Way to go girl. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ This was such an honest post and I appreciate it to every bit. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  4. I think you should do a bit of personal posts for a change too? When I started blogging, I only wrote things which I thought people would read and not really, never really about my life or anything that personal. But when I did a couple of posts that way, it felt good and I began opening up myself and got to know more people. It’s lovely. So you definitely should!
    Not that I’d want you to stop writing about your campaigns, ideas, poems and dreams ofcourse! 😊But this post was great too. 😁
