Getting to Know You...

I suppose, instead of just leaping back in to my day-to-day, I should tell you all a little about myself, so you don't have to go searching for it.

I'm currently 30, working at a bank as a teller, and engaged to my man of almost 7.5 years: Robb.  We have a 16lb. cat who is somewhere between 12 and 15.  We've been his boys for over three years now. We live in northern Illinois, where the summers are hot and the winters are cold, and he loves the cold and I love the hot.  So...there.

I wrote for my college newspaper while I was getting my Associates of Arts for journalism, and then I went on to get my Bachelor's of English.  That explains why I'm working at a bank.  Part-time.  Which might change soon.  Other than that, I write short fiction (very occasionally), I write a novel every year (I have completed seven; none are published), I've written four scripts, and I have been really into poetry as of late.  Since April 1st, I've written a poem every day.  Some good, some very bad.

In my free time, when I should be editing or something...I play video games.  I have a goal to complete one game each month from my backlog (or something).  I think I buy more than one a month, I'm not really making progress toward finishing my backlog of games...but I'm having fun.  Also, I'm in love with music.  I'm easy to please, but there are certainly bands I loathe (Creed, Nickelback, Shania Twain...).  My favorites?  Ben Folds, Fitz & the Tantrums, Five Iron Frenzy, The Rolling Stones, and Andrew Bird, just to name a few.

I haven't decided what form this blog will take.  I've toyed with having a gaming blog.  I've played at having an online journal, of sorts.  And I've thought about publishing some of my writing here, but I decided against that for the most part, since publishing here sort of negates publishing for real somewhere else. you know me.  I'm kind of an open book, so if there's anything burning questions I've left unanswered, feel free to ask!

Oh, your cart's adorable!

Also, I hear ya RE: the backlog of games. To say I've been bad about putting a dent into my own gaming backlog would be the understatement of the century. (OK, so maybe that's a bit hyperbolic.) And it's only going to get worse with the release of New Leaf this weekend. Oh, well, what are you going to do, right?

As for you being unsure as to which direction you should take this blog: I say take your time and figure it out as you're able. There's certainly no rush! And, really, if in the end you just decide it's a repository for anything and everything that interests you, there's nothing wrong with that.

HA! I thought that's what you meant. Thanks! As for your thoughts on my blog's direction, I think that's what will happen. We shall see.

P.S. New Leaf will eat my life...I'm almost dreading it. Almost.
