Today’s prompt for “Blog Everyday in September” is to reintroduce myself to my readers. Easy enough, right?
I’m Whitney. I’m newly a quarter of a century old. I grew up in the upstate of South Carolina and moved to Texas three years ago. I met the love of my life almost seven years ago and we were married in 2011. We have one cat, Susie, and one dog, Anabelle. They are equally the smartest and sweetest pets that anyone could ever have. (Except neither of them snuggle. Do they have snuggle training somewhere??)
Those are the absolute basics! But how about the stuff you wouldn’t be able to find in a file?
-Well, I’m extremely clumsy. I can thank my mother for that. I hurt myself at least once a day and I’m almost always wearing a band-aid somewhere on my body. Interestingly enough, I have never broken a bone. Knock on wood! (Did I mention I’m kind of superstitious?)
-I absolutely love to write. It’s something that I’ve been doing for a really long time. In fact, I wrote my first story when I was four years old. It was about a leprechaun that took me to Toys ‘R’ Us. Priorities, obviously.
-I have an irrational fear of E.T. Yes, the supposedly “cute” little creature from that movie that I refuse to see. He creeps me out. (ask my elementary school guidance counselor how many times we talked about that one…)
-Even though I can’t play any instruments, music has always been a huge passion of mine. I listen to every single genre (seriously, quiz me) and enjoy all of it. I work in non-profit performing arts and it’s something I discovered a passion for back in college. I have my “dream job” currently and I seriously wonder on a daily basis how I got to do something so awesome.
-I discovered my geekiness when I became obsessed with Harry Potter in the 8th grade. After that, Lord of the Rings. From there, it just spiraled after I met my husband. Since then I’ve fully accepted my geekiness. Sci-fi TV shows and movies are my jam and it’s my life goal to go to Comic Con one day. (OK, maybe not life goal but it’s pretty high up there)
-Quite contrary to the above comment, I also have a pretty big interest in fashion. I’m terrible at picking outfits but I love trying new trends. I’m slowly getting there! But even as much as I love fashion, I still love wearing yoga pants and a t-shirt the majority of the time.
-I started blogging in 2011 right after I got married. I really wanted to blog about southern culture, but it quickly became more of a journal and really helped me with the move to Texas. I’ve met so many good friends through blogging and I don’t know what I would do without them!
