About Dane Gnor ♥
I’m Dane Gnor and I’m a twenty-two-year-old blogger from Singapore who blogs about her personal life as a comfortable yet “private” form of self-expression, growth, and reflection. Having recently graduated from a local university, I am currently on the stressful path of looking for a job, but, rest assured, I am hopeful for my future. I have learnt (with bitterness) to be open to other avenues of building a career that may not be related to my course of study and training.
I mainly use this blog to share my aspirations, whether they come in forms of spirituality and character, as well as inspirations that I hope would help me lead a more creative and fulfilling life. I love clothes and hence, I’ll have categories pertaining to this interest of mine, and I also love books to no end. At the moment, I am in the midst of preparing a page on the list of books I own currently, together with markings on what I’ve already read.
Basically, on this blog, Dane Gnor, you will get to know me better than my friends know me. And how is that? Because I don’t reveal my more creative (hence personal and wackier) side to anyone who has seen my face and knows my name. This may get you thinking, “But we know your name’s Dane…” Right… About that, it’s a pseudonym I have decided to take on knowing that I will be pouring the entirety of my insides out on this blog and so I’d like a bit of safety. And since this blog is a personal blog, people from my personal life would most definitely get pulled on here, and so, they too have been given pseudonyms.
But enough about that. Let me show you the different categories I’ve put up based on what interest you when you come onto my blog 🙂
Pages & Categories
Dressing Glory || This category exhibits my love for fashion and clothes. I may occasionally share outfits I’ve worn for the day/week and even all-time favourite outfits no matter how many or how little I’ve worn them (but of course, this would not be that frequent as I am camera shy. However, this part about me sharing pictures of my outfit may change when I finally get my hands on a Polaroid camera I’ve wanted since forever. And why is that? It’s because, in my 22 years of life, I have never once owned, much less seen, a polaroid picture of myself posing solo. Never. And that’s something I want to see happen. (I can’t believe it myself, but this event is one of the items on my bucket list. Yes, unbelievable.) I will also occasionally share wishlists and fashion/outfit inspirations that align with my sense of style. Through all these, you/ll definitely get to know how I like to dress, what items or qualities in a piece of clothing I put up as top priority when I make purchases, and basically the funkier side of me, as I love getting questionable clothing that most would not even think to own (mind you, this is Singapore, a country of pretty conservative dressers who are more often than not fashion victims and slaves of quick-die street trends and passing fads).
About Tom || And under this category, you will find me gushing over this dude called Tom (you guessed it, a pseudonym). I’ve had a school-girl crush on this guy from the very first day I met him all because he had that look all other guys I’ve liked before had: a restrained air around him, not very approachable, and a fierce look in his eyes. Please don’t ask me why I am attracted to guys like that, even I think it’s mental. But, Tom is slightly different from the others (huh, the usual, always standing up for your current object of romantic interest). While he has that fierce look when I first met him, he turned out to be pretty wacky in his own ways. Bonus: he’s as kind (gentlemanly, even) as any guy could get in the present day where ideas of gender equality are rampant. (Also, it’s not that I am against gender equality, it’s just that people abuse this subject too much that the true purpose of why it even exists in the first place gets buried under interpretations that veers off true course.) But enough about this, I’ll save content for the posts. If you’re interested in my thoughts on Tom and our fading acquaintanceship, read on!
The New Alexandria Library || Basically, this page is a list of books I own currently. The name Alexandria was inspired by the Ancient (and lost) Library of Alexandria in Alexandria, Egypt. And since this book list is a digital list of my physical library of about two hundred books, I have decided to name it the New Alexandria, just my version of a library I’d love to have (which I do).
The Blog || And finally, the blog page itself that homes all of the above, if you want to look at everything at once.
