"What Did You Say?" Said The World

Hi! This is my first post as Chalk White Child so…hi. Did I already say that? Sorry, but the first post is inevitably awkward. I, for one, have never been good at first impressions. I’m more of a “give me a chance I get less awkward with time!” kind of gal. Unfortunately, this quality could leak into my blogging abilities, so please give this blog a chance, it’ll get less awkward with time? How’s about I give you a little rundown on what I’d like this blog to be, once it gets passed its awkward pre-adolescent stage (which somehow I feel like I never got passed and I’m 23!). When this blog grows up, I would like it to be a fun, doesn’t take itself too seriously blog that is about personal style, music, art, photography, books, and other random things I think are interesting. My tastes in all of these topics are pretty eclectic, so I’m sure my posts will be quite varied! I love discovering new things and I love sharing them so a blog felt like a good outlet. I am now venturing into the world of blogging, and hopefully other people will be venturing into the world of Chalk White Child. Let’s venture together, shall we?

So to kick this off, I thought a quote from one of my favorite people of all time, Shel Silverstein, was in order:

“If you are a dreamer,come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a hoper, a prayer, a magic-bean-buyer. If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire, for we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!”

Couldn’t have said it better myself, Shel.

P.S. I named the blog Chalk White Child because growing up I was always made fun of for being so pale. Since I’ve gotten older I’ve embraced it and now I actually like my pale skin! Imagine that. Just thought we’d start out with a lil sharing sesh.
