Now that I’ve been blogging for a little over a month now I wanted to take the time to actually introduce myself. Although I don’t personally know many of the people who take the time to read my posts I want to be able to connect with my audience beyond just books. So here is my top 10 things about me (with much input from my bestie and roommate Karlee).
Yes, I really do Bellydance sparkly costumes and all. My mother started dancing when I was young and I picked it up when I became old enough. I’ve been bellydancing for about eight years. The best feeling in the world is being surrounded with such wonderful ladies and the feeling you get after a really good performance
- WRITE IT DOWN
In order to remember anything important I have the tendency to write things down, everywhere. That’s why I keep a very detailed planner and have multiple lists for different reasons. Most of the ideas for this blog have been thought out and planned on paper before they even make it to my computer.
Music is a very big part of both my life and identity. I am constantly listening to music or singing to myself. I even play two instruments, violin and ukulele. I’ve been playing violin since I was seven in orchestra up until my senior year of high school. A couple of years ago is when I picked up ukulele on the spur of the moment and have taught myself to play little by little.
Above any other flower sunflowers are my favorite! They signify so much to me about my family and just happy thoughts in general. I’ve always been told that they were my great grandfather’s favorite flower so I feel closer to him when I see them at unexpected times. This became even more apparent when my great grandmother passed away my senior year. Now they are my mother’s and my favorite flowers.
I would consider myself semi-fluent in the German language. I’ve been learning German since I was about eleven. My love for the language has influenced what I chose to study in college and where I want to study abroad when I get the chance next year.
- HARRY POTTER
I couldn’t have a list of things about me without this showing up somewhere. Harry Potter was such an essential part of childhood and life today. It will always take precedent over other series and continue to be my family to come home to. I don’t think I will never not love Harry Potter. And yes, I watch almost every Harry Potter weekend on ABC Family (even though it’s technically Freeform).
- PRIDE & PREJUDICE
I consider Pride & Prejudice to be one of if not my most favorite books. Whenever I am stumped on what to read or am currently struggling to get out of a reading funk I can always rely on this trusty novel to help me out.
Obviously books are an essential part of me or I wouldn’t be a book blogger. Books allow you to live lives and go places you never thought you could before.
- OLD SOUL
A huge part of who I am is my identity as an old soul. Many of my close friends and family would describe me as such. I lean more toward the old fashioned and I’m definitely the mom friend of my group.
The most important part about me is my family. I consider myself to have four parents and eight siblings and I love every single one of them. This also includes my extended family whom I don’t see as often but every time I do it’s like no time has passed.
See ya in the A.M.
