I think I'm on to something here!

Three foiled practice posts later and here I am! I've finally made the jump from LiveJournal to Blogger.

I had thought about it for a while, and though it may not seem like an important decision, I still hemmed and hawed over it. But I did it, and now I have this lovely thing to occupy myself!

To explain the title - I'm no lady. It's a reference that I do not feel comfortable applyng to myself. I am still, for all intents and purposes, very much a university student and I'd like to change that. Not that there's anything wrong with living like a university student, except when you're not one...

When I was 16, I helped out at a daycare in my hometown to do facepainting for an afternoon. The parents all called me the facepainting lady, and I was quite shocked to be called such. I suppose that in relation to a 3 year-old any teenage girl could be a lady, but I really didn't like being called a lady.

But, try as I might, the age of ladiness is fast approaching. My friends are marrying and making offspring, and I still mooch off of my parents. It's time for a change.

My goals tend to be flexible, but this one is not, by necessity: I must grow-up. I must become an adult and acquire adult-like qualities. I must gain responsibility while hopefully maintaining personality.

And my hope is that this little webspace will become evidence of such a change.
