Welcome To The Jungle

So, here it is. My first post on my first real blog. This will act as another outlet for me to express my views on the world, and yet another to journal my art and its journey.

Introductions? Certainly.

I'm 15, almost 16 now, and Australian. My name is Sarah and I'm an only child. I'm a vegan, and I believe that animals experience the same emotions as humans and have a soul just like us. Don't ask me if I have a religion, I'm experimenting with ideologies at the moment, but the one about animals will always stick. I play guitar, I sing, I write songs, I'm into all that art stuff... like painting, drawing, mixed media, photography and sculpture. I also write stories and poems... alot. I come from a very matriarchal family, on both sides, as I see it. I have a very strong respect and empathy for fellow women, and I suppose you could call me an equalist. I wouldn't label myself a feminist... anymore. My parents are divorced and I live with my Mum, but my Dad still visits me often and calls several times a week.

There's no denying I'm some sort of creative cliche, and it's a cliche that I always admit it, but I enjoy being me none the less... on this level anyway. I like that I am free to give meaning to my views in a variety of mediums and I'm so lucky to be able to do so. There are so many people - both in third world countries and developed nations - that are unable to speak their mind, which is a true atrocity.

When I leave school I want to attend University and become and Art Gallery Curator. Big dreams, big dreams.

So thanks for reading this, and I'll keep posting.
