About me

[excuse the silly photo - I couldn't resist]

Hi, I'm Amanda, a first year Journalism student who just can't stop writing. Coming from a long lineage of nurses, studying to become a Journalist is a big deal for me. I live just outside of Melbourne and, although I love it, wouldn't mind calling Paris home. Even just for a few months. 

I've been blogging for a few years now but I've only really taken it seriously over the past few months, why it took me so long to realise what a wonderful thing blogging is I don't know. The Making of Things is a place where I can empty my thoughts, inspirations, obsessions and tell the story of my many fashion, music and journalism adventures. 

When I'm not writing you can find me front row at a gig, eating breakfast at a cafe, shopping, with my head in a book or just generally trying something new. 

I'd just like to give a big thanks to those who have stuck with my blog, even through my rough patch, and welcome to those who have wandered onto my page, oh please won't you stay?
