Journal Entry 1: Introduction

Hello reader! My name is Elle, and I am a college student. I’m starting this blog because I have a lot of free time, and not a lot of friends. Covid has taken away many opportunities to make friends as a freshman, so, here I am, starting a blog.

I’ll start with a bit about me. As previously stated, I am a freshman in college. I am majoring in Graphic Design, because they say if you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life. I had a bit of a rough upbringing, and struggle severely with depression and anxiety (I am doing much better now). I was a very strange child… to put it nicely. Okay, I was a complete weirdo. To be fair, I am a middle child and got most of my social skills from reading books.

Here’s a few random facts about me:

  • I’m a pisces
  • I have a dog, whom I adore
  • I am gluten free (NOT by choice)
  • I love poetry
  • Halloween in my favorite holiday
  • I’m an introvert to the max, so starting a blog feels kinda weird to me
  • I really want to adopt
  • My favorite food is sushi

So, what kind of blog is the Thrifty Chick? I’m so glad you asked;) I am a creative and expressive broke individual who wants to share my experiences with other creative, expressive, broke individuals. This blog is everything fun, creative, and cheap. I’ve been DIYing since before I can remember. Like, I actually can’t remember a time when I wasn’t making things.

This blog will be basic how to’s, top number lists, advice columns, and personal entries. Some of the topics I will cover are:

  • Crafting
  • Finance
  • Relationships
  • Entertainment
  • Organization/decoration
  • And other miscellaneous things… I don’t like confinement.

So, yeah.. that’s that. Stay tuned for more posts, I haven’t worked out a schedule yet, but there will be more!

PS. Here’s a picture of my dog! Her name is Rupi (After Rupi Kaur, the most amazing poet of all time), and she’s my baby!

One thought on “Introduction

  1. Hello! I can understand that Covid has been really hard for a freshman, it is supposed to be kind of “the year” to make friends but do not worry, it won’t make your college experience any less enjoyable. I myself started in my college a few months after others so you see. And for being weird lol, I am too but what makes you weird makes you special, never forget that!🌸
