Hello there, come in, take a seat, have a cup of tea! Welcome to my little corner of the internet!

Let me introduce myself! My name is Charlotte, and I'm 23 years old. I've recently returned home to Scotland, after a couple of years living abroad. I'm still figuring out what I want to do long term, but I'm currently working for a walking tour company in Edinburgh, as a meeting point coordinator and pub crawl leader, as well as doing some waiting and bar work on the side. I graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 2015, then made the huge leap of moving to Hong Kong for a year, to teach and travel round a lot of Asia. I then moved to South Korea for a few months, before choosing to return to Hong Kong for another 6 months - read that story here!

I started my blog back in 2011, after finishing high school, as a way to fill my time over the summer. The name was born out of the fact that I really didn't know what I wanted to do with my life, at least beyond attending university, and this still holds true. This title sort of sums up my approach to life, at least at the moment. I can be a worrier and an over-planner at times, so the idea of 'just muddling through life' reminds me that it's ok to not always have a plan - over the years, I've definitely become more relaxed and spontaneous in my approach to life. I'm hopeful that things will fall into place somehow, and the truth is, however I come across to others, I'm really just making everything up as I go along!

I've always loved writing, mostly fiction, so I shared a lot of stories back in the early days, as well as thoughts about life in general. However, this was only my first steps into the blogosphere, and since then I've discovered far more of both the internet, and the world! My blog now covers a whole load of topics, depending on what I feel like writing about and what's been going on in my life, and you can see them all up at the top of the page. I share outfits I've put together, music and films I enjoy, places I've travelled to, and lots of thoughts on life in general. I don't pretend to be an expert on anything; I just like writing and sharing my thoughts with you all. So pick a topic that you like the look of, and have a look around! Please don't be shy about commenting too, I'd love to hear what you think about things!
