I am a quasi-adult. This realisation hit me as I tried to write this, my first blog post—no, as I tried to write the first blog post, the blog post to end all blog posts, the blog post that compels you to click 'follow' on bloglovin', eager for the next installment.
We're talking about the holy grail of first posts. No pressure.
Spoiler alert! It doesn't exist. Well, not written by me. I've tried to write this post many times, many different ways and I just can't crack the formula. I've googled 'first blog post' and scrolled back through the archives of many an established blog searching for inspiration and—still—nothing.
So, let's just muddle through. Let's get back to the whole 'quasi-adult' thing.
Do you know what I mean by this? Do you ever feel that way? You've hit your twenties, or thirties, or whatever. Teen is no longer a part of your age. Outwardly, you look like an adult. Your clothes are ironed, your house is (relatively) tidy, the laundry is done, and you actually managed to make a dinner last night that included all the recommended food groups. Success!
But... inwardly you're just confused. Confused about what you want. Confused about which direction you want to take your life. Just really confused. Yep, you're a quasi-adult. Welcome to a not-so-secret club, no membership fee needed, just solidarity (the secret handshake is still in development).
And welcome to www.missfif.com, a blog about books, movies, travel, Brisbane city-living, creativity and finding your way, and maybe a few more things (definitely a few more things).
A blog by a quasi-adult trying to drop the 'quasi' moniker, one blog post at a time.
Over the coming weeks I'll be writing about podcasts, calligraphy, bullet journals, and the film A Monster Calls. I'll be taking part in Julia Cameron's 12-week course, guided by her book The Artist's Way (we'll see how long I last). I'll be waxing lyrical about V.E. Schwab's Shades of Magic trilogy and eventually writing about my upcoming trip to Melbourne, the coffee capital of Australia.

Until next time,
