You might have already read the “About” page up there, and you might be thinking that an introduction post is a tad redundant. Good thing I don’t care what you think, because I am rubber and you are glue and hey – that reminds me, I need to finish hot gluing shells onto a wooden letter…
Obviously, I am easily distracted. Some may find that a flaw but since I am also an optimist, I tend to view it as a personality strength instead. Yes, I may interrupt you mid-sentence to tell you about a side dish I made 3 weeks ago, but my ability to bounce from subject to subject is also what helps me excel at my job. As an account manager for a website design and marketing firm, I need to be able to tend to the needs of multiple clients every day – and sometimes not on a very set schedule. Flexibility is my friend.
There! My career, that’s fact #1. I could go on forever, because I have no modesty when it comes to describing myself, but we’ll try to limit my list to 5 today.
Fact #2: I was born and raised in the suburbs of Philadelphia, and frequently tell strangers I live “right outside” the city. If you consider 30 minutes to be right outside, then I’m not a liar and we can be friends. I absolutely adore Philly, so much so that I ended up at Temple University majoring in Communications. I spent a little time half-assing schoolwork (hey, at least I’m honest) and a lot of time exploring the city with my friends. Also, I lived in Rome for 4 months, but we’ll address that when I have a full box of tissues another time.
See? I ramble. That was like 4 facts in 1. Let’s move on to the official #3. I’ve been taking pictures rather obsessively since around the age of 10, when I was trusted with my first digital camera. Prior to that I carried bags of disposable cameras to field trips and soccer tournaments and captured blurry candids of unfortunate haircuts my friends and I would rather forget. Now I’ve got my trusty Nikon D5000 and a modest collection of beautiful lenses, and I own a portrait and family photography business in my hometown!
You’re probably sick of me by now but fact #4 is awesome so POWER ON my friend: I have cadaver tissue inside of my left wrist bone. YUP. I have a dead person’s bone particles melded into my radius, and I’m pretty sure that makes me at least half superhero. I will absolutely tell you all about my wristperience when I haven’t already gone on for almost 2,000 characters.
#5: I am still best friends with the amazing group of people I met in high school. They are so amazing that I would actually go back and be 16 all over again, despite my total lack of fashion sense and boobs. I tell you this because they will likely appear quite often in this blog. Especially my bff Kelly, and my bf Tim, for obvious reasons. (I stalk them)
Woah. If you’re still reading I think you ought to email me your bank account number so I can compensate you for your time and attention. Except wait, I’m poorer than Kristen Wiig and the colonial woman put together.
Stay tuned & grab a glass of wine, and I promise I’ll get more interesting eventually ; )
