Gosh. About me. So much to say, so little time.
I like to keep things simple. I’m an outgoing introvert so I think a lot and I can be a little (A. Little.) quiet and reserved at times. I’m friendly at a party, but will then seek out the quiet spot. I’m an INTJ and from what I’ve read about that personality type – a pretty darn good one. I used to apologize for that. I don’t anymore.
I’m independent and I like to learn new things but I do get frustrated with myself. I WISH I had the same amount of patience for myself as I have for others. I’ve been told I have a high tolerance for bad behavior. This is something I’m working to change.
I’m a ‘jeans & t-shirt kind of girl, but I clean up nicely. I’ve been told I’m low maintenance but I’m unsure if that’s a compliment or not. I’m most at peace around large bodies of water.
I’m a Mama Bear, Community Advocate, and aspiring catcher of many bluegills (which is code for “I’ll go fishing. I even like fishing. I do not, in the least bit, take fishing seriously.”) I just bought a bicycle last year and learned to paddle a kayak this year. I suck at both, but I’m getting better. Life is about learning, right? I can build a fire. I can call roadside assistance. I can shoot a gun.
I like cheeseburgers and road trips, wine, whiskey, Diet Pepsi, and Milk Duds. I’m what we Missourians call “a swang voter”. I identify as ‘Christian’ but I don’t go to church and I like learning about the beliefs others hold. I’m pretty open-minded but draw the line at cheap whiskey. Sorry, not sorry.
I’ve wanted to be a writer since I was eight years old. I was an avid reader as a child and I’ve had my nose stuck in a book most of my life. My favorites include S.E. Hinton, Jodi Picoult, Zachry K. Douglas, and JmStorm. I’m a romantic. I believe, no matter how many times I screw up, the Universe will always auto-correct my destiny.
Thank you for stopping by. Thank you for sharing my ideas with others. Thank you for considering how simplicity and vulnerability may work for you. Thank you for being alive.
