About Me

About Me

I am: deceptively quiet; introverted; a good listener but awful at advice; a dreamer; a giggler (seriously, I laugh A LOT); blonde; blue-eyed; lazy as hell; unapologetic (though I always say ‘sorry’ when I run into inanimate objects – wtf? anyone else have this quirk?); afraid of spiders and insects and creepy crawly things; addicted to books; a writer; sweeter than I sound; allergic to sports; painfully shy when it comes to meeting new people; in desperate need of discipline (take that however you want); a middle child; incredibly near-sighted; a night owl; fascinated by darkness (and protective of it, too, since “dark” is often confused with “evil”); easily sunburned; out of things to say.
