“Be practical as well as generous in your ideals. Keep your eyes on the stars, but remember to keep your feet on the ground.”
– Theodore Roosevelt
Well, here we are. After weeks of preparation, I present to you, the nerve-wracking first post:
I am Gillian (soft “g”, as in “ginger”). I’m a recent college graduate with a degree in Athletic Training. When I’m not here, I’m jumping between working my full-time job, working my per-diem job, and moving (dance, yoga, hiking, you name it).
So why blog?
Well, I’ve only been employed for a very short two months, but in that time, I’ve come to realize that while I enjoy the work that I do, I’m simply not passionate about it.
I love to write; I love style; I love human movement; why not put them all together?
This blog is a means for both personal expression, and interpersonal exchange. It is a lifestyle blog featuring the balance between my fantasies of grandeur with the realistic choices that sometimes take priority.
My hope is that this blog will provide inspiration for women who aspire to a certain aesthetic, whatever that may be, but understand that life happens and sometimes compromises need to be made.
Even so, heads up! Just a disclaimer! There will be occasions when I let my inner fairy out to prance and write features that are entirely impractical simply because they tickle my fancy.
In the end, these are just the chronicles of a Neverland native secretly harboring in the real world.
