I’ve gotten some new faces around here in the last two months so I thought I would do a little introduction! I have an about me page, but there is always more to the story. I feel like this blog does a very good job at capturing parts of my mind, but I feel like some details are lost in translation.
So may I start with my hobbies?
- I love art but I’m not very good at it, so I went the less traditional route and took up photography and graphic design. I minored in photography in college and I spent all four years working for the graphic/layout department of my campus newspaper.
- I’m a writer above all else. I mean that word in a few different ways. I love the type of writing I get to do for blog posts and articles, but I first fell in love with words when I started writing my first novel. During high school I wrote five novels, they all read like a high schooler wrote them, but everyone’s got to start somewhere. I am currently working on three manuscripts right now, one that I’m really set on trying to get published.
- As you probably know by my publications category, I’m a big reader. I started really reading heavily in middle school after a childhood of doing everything I could not to read. Looking back at it I can see that it was the first step in becoming a writer.
- Oh, and the horse, of course. If you’ve been here a while you know D’Artagnan’s beautiful face. I’ve been riding for over sixteen years now and owned my boy for all eight of his years here on earth. We qualified a few times for Barrel Racing World Finals but very rarely race anymore. Now we’re just training and trail riding.
Now for some more side facts. I’m a twenty-two year old single woman who is about to start looking for a job again. I graduated Guilford College in May 2016 then got sick for a year with Lyme. I’m going to be writing a blog post about my career goals soon, so keep a look out for that. In addition to the horse I have two kittens named Denim and Linen. I love animals and children. My favorite type of food is Italian and I’d happily live off pasta alone for the rest of my life. I live in North Carolina and I’m a Christian. I’m a very loud person who likes to talk an awful lot. I’ve never been one to keep secrets and I’m about as open of a book as you will find.
If there is anything else you want to know just ask! Also, I would love it if I got a little information about some of you I don’t know very well. I think one of the great things about online spaces is the community you can build.
