Hello to all! I’m Darshana, the 16 year old girl behind parchmentpressed. I’m currently in New Zealand, and absolutely loving it here – the beauty and general friendliness around is rather rare.
I’m just about to start my last year of school in January, which is quite a worrying prospect, really. The whole idea of going to uni is daunting, but hey, I’m taking it as it comes, and I suppose that should help, right?
Anyway, I’m an avid bookworm (something that will probably come through in this blog) and to go with that, I also absolutely adore writing. I guess you could say that I’m an aspiring author, although I seem to have difficulty finishing any one book once I’ve started it, something that only seems all the more problematic due to the fact that I keep starting different things about every second week.
But welcome to my blog! This is my first time I’m blogging quite seriously, so do bear with me.
