Well, I finally completed my goal of an entire week of daily blog posts! I have been wanting to complete this goal for some time now and I am so proud of myself that I finally did. I honestly doubt that I will post every day, actually right now I could tell you that is not at all going to happen, I am too busy! Although, I think from now on I will post when I am most in need of posting, maybe three or four times a week, but I am trying not to stricken myself when to post. Now that my week of blogging is done, I want to really introduce myself and this Blog, which I really have not done yet.
My name is Skylar, and I have always had a passion for two things: musical theatre and writing. Fun fact, I used to write so much as a child that I would often get fractures in my wrist from writing so intensely! My real passion and career I am pursuing though, is musical theatre. I have always wanted to be an actress and a singer, especially on Broadway, although I dream of every aspect of acting. I dream big, and I am not ashamed of that, my dreams are what can lift me up when I am down. My absolute goal in life is to become an E.G.O.T – Winner of an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Award!
Despite myself mainly being in the UK Blogger community on Twitter, I do live in America! My absolute favorite place in the entire world is New York City, I absolutely adore it there. My mother and her mother before that was born and raised in Scotland, and I am very proudly of Scottish and English descent. My grandmother had a very deep Scottish accent and always raised me to be “strictly Scottish”, may God rest her soul.
Throughout my times in school, I never had many friends. Mainly, because I am a theatre kid, but despite that I am very quiet and content. When I know people, I am truly loud as can be, but other times I am the quietest in the room. I would say I contain more street smarts than book smarts, and I honestly prefer it that way.
I adore great literature and Old Hollywood films, I have my entire life. I grew up on Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand (whom I saw in concert this past Summer!!) and they are the biggest inspirations for my acting dreams. Oh, and Julie Christie is the greatest actress in the world in my opinion.
I created this blog because I simply love writing, yet I have not time and dedication to ever write a complete novel. Though, I would absolutely love to one day. The name Darling came from my favorite Julie Christie film, Darling (1965), and Candidly was just a name I added in! I am very content with my blog name I must say.
I absolutely love reading fashion blogs, they inspire my style so much. Plus, I wanted to share some of my style with people, so why not do it with a blog! I love writing lifestyle posts, too, I think they can really help some people. I know many bloggers lifestyle posts have helped me in the past. Eventually, I want to start writing posts on serious matters I have dealt with in my life, such as anxiety and stress, but I am not yet ready to write of that publicly. I know talking about these things would for sure take much pressure off my back, and I know they could help others dealing with the same issues feel as if they are not alone. No one is alone.
I am a very nostalgic, sentimental, imperfect person, but that only makes me a human being. I cannot wait to progress moe with this blog, and to share my aspects of life with some of you. I will do the best I can, as always, and I hope you enjoy my many more posts to come! You are special, and a thousand times thank you for reading this post or my others!
Introduce yourselves or your blogs in the comments or tweet me at @candidlydarling I would love to get to know you all!
