Welcome to my blizz-og, y’all! (Just kidding.)
So, this is an autobiography, something I consider to be one of the most uncomfortable things in existence. I despise writing about myself because, I have’t really found a way to do so without feeling that I don’t sound like myself. I could give you a list of things I love to do that would read something like this: I truly enjoy a good book, a warm North Carolina spring afternoon spent creekside, the color green, Bob Marley’s music, and any pasta-based dish. Rather than blood, I’m pretty sure sweet tea and sausage gravy corses through my veins. I have 9 dogs and a fat little dwarf rabbit who I love more than just about everything else. My family and I spend a lot of time (and money) on dog rescue – getting them out of shelters and into good, loving homes. It’s one of the most rewarding and painful experiences possible and it can bring out the most wonderful or most horrid qualities in humans. Doing my nails is a favorite way to relax until the inevitable moment when I mess them up because they’re in that limbo stage between perfectly dry and still a teensy bit wet. The universe blessed me with three amazing women who quickly became not only best friends but the sisters I (thankfully) never had. They provide me with at least one complement per day (even if I look like a run down hobo in sweatpants), invaluable stability and innumerable laughs – without them I’d surely perish. Not to gush, but I also have a wonderfuly amazing, stunningly smart, and breathtakingly handsome boyfriend of four years who I love and cherish more than my words could ever explain.
I am an English & Secondary Education major at Appalachian State University. I truly love the field I have chosen – or rather the field that chose me. From a young age I was a teacher, complete with gradebooks and xeroxed tests that I imposed on my family members. In my short life I have never known another love like literature. Books have been my friends when I believed that no one else was. A place to bury my nose after a long day of classes or a way to visit the ends of the universe even after NASA was nixed. Naturally, I couldn’t think of anything more rewarding to do with my seemingly insignificant life than to share that love with young minds.
