Getting the hang of things….

Why is it that whenever I go to write something here my heart speeds up and my palms get a teeny bit sweaty?

I’m such a newbie! I think the thought of writing something and then putting it out there for anyone to see and read scares me a bit. The vastness of the internet constantly blows my mind – once something’s written, you can’t really ever delete it because you don’t know who’s read it or got hold of it…a similar argument that my mum poses to me whenever a questionable picture of me comes up on Facebook. She goes on about how a prospective employer could possibly see any of these pictures and freaks out about how it could be a handicap in the competitive job market. My counter argument is that my privacy settings are like the security around the crown jewels – I’ve been there, there’s cameras everywhere, it’s very dark (presumably to inhibit any attempts at escape and make you run into things) and there are very odd human conveyor belts…it’s a perplexing place to say the least. Ain’t nobody stealin’ those jewels!

But now, I’ve almost got over my aversion to posting, it’s something I get a tad excited about now. It may seem like I got over this fear over the space of minutes, but I wrote the previous paragraph two days ago…what can I do, I’m a procrastinator?

I’ve got over my aversion to posting because I’ve got another brave thing happening to me soon.

Cue heroic music!

LIZZIE’S NEW BRAVE THING NUMBER 2! (after making a blog)

I’m engaging in my first interview this week with an actual band! Music is a massive thing for me (as I mentioned in the previous post) and I’ve been tossing around the idea of going into music journalism as a career for a while. And as I’m being proactive at the moment and organising myself, I discovered that a relatively new band from France are playing in my town this coming week. Our Theory…have you heard of them? YouTube them, they’re new but show signs of great promise.

I sent them an email and asked if they’d mind giving me some experience and on Thursday, I’m going to conduct my first ever interview! <applause>

A little bit of me was hoping they’d say no – I’m a bit jittery about it to say the least!

If anyone has any tips or questions they’d like me to ask them, or even suggestions for an app I can get from the App Store to record it on, leave a comment, it’d be greatly appreciated!

For now, I’m going to leave it there, I’ve got a seminar to go to in a bit, French oral skills, ugh! 

Have a good day!

A 23 year old postgraduate student who will never quite grow up enough to leave the Harry Potter universe behind or accept that it's time to leave university. I write to explore, to create and occasionally to vent. I tend to be consumed with fits of spontaneity that leave me looking at the screen wishing I'd used fewer commas and ended sentences that run on far longer than they should. I'm a jolly soul by nature, come say hello!
