I don't know about you guys, but when I read a blog I think it's interesting to get a glimpse behind the reviews and the interviews and contests. You can gather a bit of a blogger's personality by just reading their content: what kind of sense of humor they have, a little of their morals and values, taste in books. It's cool to actually get to know a little bit about that person as well!
So, in case anyone's interested at all, here are some random tidbits about me.
.:. I'm 25, but I don't feel like it at all. (Or apparently look like it. I still get carded everywhere I go, and was carded for just standing in a casino while on a Vegas vacation.) I really feel like someone just hit "fast-forward" on my life after turning 21. I'm hyperemotional and a hypochondriac. I have extreme facial expressions (too embarrassed to upload photographic evidence of this) and talk with my hands. I have an immature and ridiculous sense of humor. I laugh at things that make no sense and probably aren't as funny as I find them. Like this video.
.:. I'm in Nursing school full-time, after pretty much ruling out every other major in the world. I wanted to be a veterinarian, psychologist, meteorologist, editor, and music teacher throughout my life. I'm indecisive and scared to take responsibility and initiative for my future, but you have to grow up sometime, right? I also work full-time in customer service, though I'd love to be a stay at home millionaire housewife and read all day. Would anyone like to sponsor my cause?
.:. I met my husband when I was 15. I didn't know that he'd be my husband at that time, though. We both had separate lives and he ended up moving far away, but we remained friends for 6 years before actually dating. He's the best thing in my life and I have so much admiration for him. AND he's smart. Oh, so very smart. He is a high school social studies teacher. Plus, he keeps my whimsical self relatively down to earth. I pretty much scored, finding one with looks AND brains. We've been married for a little over a year and I have the best life ever.
.:. I have a food addiction. I am not ashamed to eat people's leftovers. It's finally begun to catch up with me. (I HATE YOU, MID-TWENTIES.) My favorite is vegetable lo mein, tacos de carne asada, spaghetti, cheeses of any and all kinds, and I even love canned Spaghetti-Os. I can't cook, so none of the above bodes well for the wallet. Except the delicious nutrition of canned noodles and potentially harmful meat.
.:. I have two feline children, Bella (gray/white) and Bo Schembechler (cream). For the most part, I like animals more than people. Sad, but true. Yes, I named Bella after Bella Swan. Yes, she's equally needy and whiny. It fits. And yes, I regularly have photoshoots with my cats. They're very photogenic, can you blame me?
.:. I believe that an 8 hour workday should come with a nap.
.:. My favorite books when I was a kid were the Babysitter's Club series, Goosebumps, and Fear Street. I read those religiously, but didn't branch out of those series much. I regret that now, but am more than attempting to make up for it!
.:. My favorite musicians are: My Chemical Romance, Damien Rice, Dave Matthews Band, Bon Iver, Ludo, Imogen Heap, Britney Spears, Billy Joel, Jason Reeves, The Spill Canvas, The Rocket Summer, Jack's Mannequin, Foy Vance, Ingrid Michaelson, Jason Mraz, Muse, The Fray, Missy Higgins, Brandi Carlile, and Paramore. There are more, I just can't think of them off the top of my head. Music is my life.
.:. Some of my favorite series are as follows:
Twilight Saga, of course
Vampire Academy Series
Wicked Lovely Series
Georgina Kincaid Series (not YA)
Mercy Thompson Series (not YA, but suitable for it)
Morganville Vampires Series
Gemma Doyle Trilogy
The Hunger Games Trilogy
Yes, that is me in a nutshell. Pretty boring, but whatever. Anything else you want to know, feel free to ask!
