Lets see…about me…
…currently working on a Master’s Degree in Library Science. Eventually I would like to work as an children’s or young adult librarian. But, before I settle down I would like to have an adventure. Consequently, I am currently searching for a job as a librarian on a cruise ship.
…a lover of books. I love to collect them, to read them, to browse them in bookstores with a delicious dessert-like coffee drink in my hand. My favorite author is Jane Austen. I think it is more than appropriate since we have the same birthday. That said, I like all different kinds of literature…picture books to novels to audio books…non-fiction to fantasy and science fiction.
…Howard’s best friend. Howard is my fish. I love him, and even if I sometimes forget to feed him, I like to believe if fish were capable of love…he would love me too.
…a romantic. I believe things happen for a reason. I like to think about happy endings and the warm summer breeze kissing rosy cheeks. I think flowers cheer up most situations and the right song can change your mood from sour to sassy in its three and a half-minute duration. Realism has its place, the planner in me knows that, but there is something to be said for believing that perfect moments happen.
…a domestic lady. I like to craft, quilt, bake…it is all good.
…a nerd. I am a big enthusiast of Lord of the Rings and Doctor Who. Harry Potter is mentioned regularly in my house. I want to learn to speak in an accent and each time I watch Lord of the Rings or the Chronicles of Narnia, I want to learn how to fight with a broadsword. In elementary school I was the kid that asked for extra homework and for three days in high school I was a mathlete. I used to be embarrassed by this fact…now I embrace it.
Most importantly, I am a Christian. I know there are many connotations and assumptions that go with that word, but this is what it means to me. I have a personal relationship with God. I think He has a plan for my life and I want to follow His will in everything I do. I mess this up…alot…but I know that He will always love me and no matter how badly I screw up, that won’t change.
