story of my life.


And so it begins: May. Spring! The day that I see the LIGHT at the end of the tunnel! Okay, so it really “began” yesterday, and I’m a little behind the times (seriously, things have been so crazy lately, I don't even know what day it is, anymore). But starting now I am officially taking the plunge and linking up with Jenny for a little bit of blogging fun, this month, with a blog every day in May challenge. Eek! I’m so excited. And nervous. And already failing, because I’m starting on the second. But hey. Her number one rule was that there were no rules, so, we’re going to go with it.

So, today, friends, is the Story of My Life (in 250 words).

See this? Duck lips, from an early age. I was obviously a trend setter. 

I was born and raised in the middle of nowhere. I’ve never moved. I pretended to hate it for the longest time, but now that I’m finishing up college and have a real chance to leave it all behind, I’m realizing that there isn’t anywhere else I’d rather live. I love it here, and frankly, love my family way too much to ever move out of easy-bothering-distance. They’re stuck with me. ;)
As a kid, I loved to sing. Loudly. And really off-key. Especially in church.
I’m indecisive and introspective and horrible at anything domestic. I tried to learn once; I wanted to impress a boy. And from that experience I learned only one thing: To always be my messy undomesticated self. Always.
One night, when I was in third grade, I stayed up until after midnight in order to finish a research project on the rainforest macaw. And so the stage was set for the rest of my life: I have procrastinated ever since.
I love God.
I have never broken a bone, and I credit that to the lack of exciting risks I’ve taken in my lifetime.
Lately, I experience 90% of life behind the wheel of my Nissan, thanks to a super long commute to school. Seriously. I drive, and drive, and drive. But in 23 days, that will all be in the past, and I’ll have a new chapter of this life to celebrate, called graduation. And I am beyond excited to see what comes next!

Have a happy Tuesday. Wednesday. Whatever today is. :)
