So I’ve been blogging for a little bit here, and I’m so happy to start to build a following of readers (hey, you!). I’m finding this blog experiment really fun so far and it’s definitely forcing me to get creative in the kitchen and stick to a writing schedule – both good things! I’m hoping to branch into doing some DIY projects in the coming weeks, I’ve always wanted to learn crafting skills so… here we go.
Anyway, I realized my About page here is a bit lacking and a post might be a better place to really explain myself so to speak. It’s impossible to capture my entire being in this little white text box, but hopefully this post gives you an idea of who I am. I always love learning about the bloggers I read in their blogger introductions so to speak, so I figured I would do the same and “get out there”. So let’s do a brief rundown of my life… da da duh duhhh!
I was born 27 wonderful years ago in Vancouver, BC, Canada, where I still live (a little outside of the city now where prices are still affordable!). As a kid, I grew up in my grandpa’s house which was awesome. He passed away a few years ago, which is still hard to believe sometimes, but I’m thankful I had so much time with him, especially in the time before he passed. Anyway, I spent most of my time alone as a child, which was pretty cool because I explored the ravine nearby and made friends with lots of animals including stray cats, squirrels and my collection of snails which I held races with (thrilling entertainment). My mom was a single mother so money was tight and things were hard sometimes, but it was mostly pretty cool.
In secondary school, I moved out to “the boonies” (like 20 minutes away) which I hated, but I made a lot of great friends I still have today, and my most lasting friendships are people from this “boonies”, so there must be something good about it. The day after school ended, I got a job working full-time and haven’t looked back since. I’ve taken a few school classes but those are expensive. I’ve worked at Starbucks, medical non-profit organizations, an office supplies sales job that was exactly (and I mean EXACTLY) like the TV show The Office, coffee wholesale sales, and now, finally, marketing and copywriting, my passion. I’ve been quite lucky to land where I have.
These days, I am preparing to move into a new townhouse with my boyfriend, learning to cook, and doing the bidding of my 12 year old Siamese cat, Audrey. When it’s snuggle time, it’s snuggle time. As for a few fun facts, well, my favourite colour is purple (gee, could you tell?) and I love whiskey, dinosaurs and reading about science. A few of my favourite celebrities include Chelsea Handler, Stephen Colbert, Bill Murray and Angelina Jolie. Some favourite musicians are Slash (ultimate fave), The Rolling Stones, The Guess Who, Lady Gaga, The Black Keys, Girl Talk and The Kooks. That should give you kind of an idea of who I am if you also like to judge people by their musical preferences.
Well, I always love getting to know other people, especially other bloggers out there, so leave a comment and tell me something about yourself, or ask me anything you wanna know (don’t make it weird).
And if you’re looking for some more reading, here are a few of my favourite recent posts:
Looking forward to blogging more. Thanks for reading my word vomits.
