I’m always a little hesitant when it comes to “about me” pages. I love to write, but an about me page just seems so… forced, so unnatural that its difficult for me to actually write one. But since the about me page is the first page I visit on virtually every blog I come across, I feel its unfair to do that and then not have one for people to visit in return. So where to begin? And its in list form, how awesome is that?
- I ABSOLUTELY LOVE to read. Anything I can get my hands on. I’m even excited to start reading my text book for my classes. I’ve read all seven of the Harry Potter novels more times than I care to admit, and I’ve had to replace several of my favorite novels from over use.
- I’m an animal lover, to the point that my fiance won’t let me go into a pet store when they’re having pet adoptions. We have a beautiful dog named Harley and a cat named Snickers, and I love them more than sense.
- I’m a voracious writer. Blogs, journals, novels, you name it, I’ve tried it. I’ve cranked out five bazillion word essays half asleep and gotten A’s on them, with a bit of editing after I was fully conscious of course.
- I am a caffeine addict. My lovely boyfriend absolutely refuses to speak to me in the morning until I’ve had my cup of coffee, and I have to have at least one soda during the day to be fit for public.
- I’m a fan of cheap wine. No, seriously. Before I couldn’t stand the stuff, mostly because all I’ve ever had was the over priced nonsense that tastes like its been soaked with dirty gym socks. We went to visit my fiance’s family, and his sister’s S.O turned me onto this one particular brand, and I’ve been drinking it ever since.
- When it comes to crafts, I’m about as useless as two left thumbs. I tried knitting and gave up, my mom never hung my craft projects on the fridge, and I’m not allowed anywhere near sewing needles, both for my safety and the safety of those around me.
- Four and a half years ago, I met the most wonderful and patient man. He captured me, body and soul, and my driving passion behind going back to school is to be able to marry this man and start a family with him and provide the life for that family that I never had, one where we don’t have to choose between paying the electric bill and feeding our family.
- I have the most supportive family a girl could ever ask for, and its my driving passion in life to be the kind of mother my mom and sister’s are. They inspire me daily, and if I can be half the women they are, I will consider myself successful.
- One of the biggest reasons I want to get into human resources is to help other people succeed. Even when I was a self centered teenager, I would go out my way to help others, even if that meant sacrificing something of mine (time, money, etc) to help them. Now that I’m all grown up, I’d like to continue that by helping people in a real and tangible way, and what better way to do that than to help people help themselves.
