Am I the only one who practices her Emmy speech in the shower? Yes? Hoo, boy. Um, well, anyway, I can put that speech to good use now since I’ve been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award! And I’m so humbled!
Thank you, Chevy Takes the Mic for nominating me. Your hair is fantastic, my dear! I love it. And I love your freaking blog! Seriously, I have a thing for nice voices too and I’m still cracking up at your “Nappily Ever After” post. Keep on making me smile, girl!
Anyway, back to my post. For this award, I’m supposed to tell you all seven facts about me. I feel like I’m the most boring person I know (also the funniest), but I’ve had a few people tell me I have crazy stories. So, here goes!
I started reading when I was three. I don’t remember much of this, but my parents tell me I picked up my first book and learned to read at three. What I do remember from that time is my first day of Kindergarten and none of the other kids knowing how to read yet. I thought I had super powers!
I wrote my first story at seven. When I was in first grade, I wrote a story about a dinosaur who had no friends. The only problem was…the book was one page long. When I brought it in to show it off, my teacher said, “It’s not done!” So, she gave the class a free day to help me flesh out the story. In the end, we had a fully bound book that I took home with me!
I’m a domestic abuse survivor. Whoa, this got dark. But it’s true. I survived five years with someone who mentally, emotionally and physically abused me. Now, I’m far removed from that situation and looking to help any other survivors.
I love food. No joke. I want to eat at one of Hell’s Kitchens. I love restaurants and going out to eat. It’s such an experience and releases all those endorphins!
I’ve got a degree in Visual Communications. What’s that mean? It means I can code a website or design your new logo. I even do my own book covers! Which is probably part of the reason they don’t sell!
I’ve been to 80+ concerts. AC/DC, Ozzy, Filter, Blue October, AFI, Eve 6, Slipknot…I could keep going. Festivals, arenas or clubs, I’m game to go anywhere to see that band! I’m even going to see Panic! At The Disco tonight.
I used to be a paranormal investigator. You read that right. I used to hunt ghosts in strange peoples’ houses in the middle of the night. I even got to investigate the Brookdale Lodge – famous for its little girl ghost. Did I find anything? Well, that’s a blog post for another time.
So now you know seven things about me that maybe you didn’t before. Now, I’m going to nominate fifteen other bloggers for this award. Happy writing!
