ABOUT

Hello, you who have strayed unto my sunny corner of the internet. Welcome to my blog, Paraphernalia!

As you’ve obviously stumbled across my About page, I think it’s fair to assume you’re curious to know more on what this blog is about and who the crazy author is behind it all. So, firstly, I’ll talk a little on the actual blog.

About paraphernalia:

The blog Paraphernalia was launched on exactly the 14th of August 2019. It was christened with the title of Paraphernalia, after my smart mum came up with the name. After all, this blog ties together a few pieces of what I call, my personal paraphernalia – the little things in my life which make me the person I am. The main paraphernalia and focus of the blog around here is on the arts (i.e. drawing, writing, photography and more!) and the media (i.e. music, movies and books). So, if you’re into any of those things, I hope you’ll enjoy what you see. It’s my goal to release a new post here weekly, on every Thursday.

And now… about me, the author:

So, my name’s Sarah (although I have a few nicknames: Sawah, Sarebear and Flat Earther (that last one may seem a little crazy, but it’s an in-joke between me and a friend😂)). I’m a teenager who possesses a love for all things creative and artsy. I probably have way too many hobbies, but a few of them are: drawing, writing, singing, reading and photography.

For those of you who are into personality types, I’m an INFP, as well as an Enneagram type 4. So, as you can probably guess, I’m an introvert. But, even then, I’m quite a drama queen and I’m still pretty outgoing and loud around my family. I like spending a lot of time working on quiet projects in my bedroom.

As I said, I’m very into drawing. There’s a slideshow above with a few of my favourite art pieces I’ve worked on. I’m an aspiring realism artist and I’ve been drawing seriously since June 2018 (it all started with a horribly wonky portrait I drew of Chris Evans (which is not pictured due to the cringiness)). I have an art page on Instagram, which is practically my portfolio and I pretty much post all my art on there now. You may follow if you like @sarahthea_art. As for my other main hobby, writing, I don’t have much to say about it as you can just read a stash of it by digging through the Creative Writing category.

I am a massive geek, especially when it comes to music and movies. I seriously love all kinds of music, ranging from soft piano, to folk, to pop, to punk, to rock, to thrash metal. 😂 I listen to a good bit of alternative music too and my favourite band’s actually Twenty Øne Piløts (any fellow banditøs out there??). As for movies, I’m very into historical fiction/drama films, plus I love a good few thrillers. But then I’m also into other stuff too, like Marvel movies (my favourite characters are Captain America, The Winter Soldier and Black Widow).

I absolutely love travelling, plus photography – the marriage of doing both of them together is literally the best thing ever! My favourite kind of travelling is car rides, especially during nighttime whilst blasting music from my earphones; it just makes me so happy.

A very scattered and long-winded list of other things I love/enjoy includes: space, sunsets, the ocean, bullet journaling, movie theatres, the colour red, guitars, painting, Mexican food, summer, walks, hoop earrings, lip balm, the Skeleton Clique, snail mail, notebooks, puppies, Pinterest aesthetics, baseball caps, Converse high tops, popcorn and Doritos.

That, I think, covers everything! I hope we’ll get to know each other even more throughout my blogging journey. Your visit here today truly means so much to me – thank you. Now it’s your turn to introduce yourself in the comments by listing five (or more) fun facts about yourself below; I can’t wait to hear from you! I read every single comment and I try to reply as soon as possible. I’m ecstatic to have you alongside me on my blogging journey!
