Hi there! Welcome to Oh, Restless Bird! I've noticed a couple of new lovely faces around here over the last couple of weeks, so I thought it would be a good idea to introduce myself (again) before I continue to blog on.
Here are a few things about me that aren't covered on my about me page . . .
( 1 )
My heart longs for Scotland and I'm not even Scottish. Nope. I blame my love of Scotland on the Loch Ness Monster and Amy Pond.
( 2 )
I tend to contradict myself and my loves/likes a lot with some seriously major contrast, but I'm completely okay with that fact. (Example: I love buying shoes, but I hate wearing them.)
( 3 )
I've been in love with the same guy for over 3 years; and supposedly "Operation Engagement" is underway, or so I've been told. *EEP* I cannot wait to marry my best friend!
( 4 )
I work at a Christian bookstore, and answer the store phone like I'm involved in an Old
Western Shoot-Out or something every.single.time. My purple apron is my phone-gun holster, I kid you not. My favorite section to stock at the store is (duh!) of course the Fiction section.
( 5 )
I thought I was a pretty fast talker, being born a city kid, who later in life moved to the mountains and whatnot, but then I met my blogger friend Meghan. Meg's waaaay faster at talking than me! I guess us Southerner's just talk a bit slower naturally, eh?
( 6 )
I'm working on writing a YA Fantasy Novel, which leads me to research crazy things like Herbology and Mythical Sea Creatures.
( 7 )
I talk with my hands a lot and eat food like an Italian-beast. My favorite restaurants are Olive Garden and Carrabba's. Oh, and I can make some mean homemade Chicken Marsala too! Speaking of Italy . . . I'd so love to go there someday!
( 8 )
I love photography, but rarely take photos of myself . . . like, ever. I prefer to take pictures of other people, architecture and nature.
( 9 )
I've been a Christian since I was an itty bitty, though I really didn't claim my faith as my own until I was 16.
( 10 )
( 11 )
I'm obsessed with Doctor Who. I mean, its a crazy-handsome man and a flying blue box for crying out loud! Who wouldn't be obsessed with The Doctor!?
( 12 )
I'm a BIG TIME movie watcher and usually associate certain foods with certain movies. I associate Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Disney's The Fox & The Hound, and Chocolate Covered Coffee Beans with Twilight. Oh, and I am just as weird when it comes to watching TV too. For instance, I associate Spaghetti with The Walking Dead and Japanese Food with Fringe.
( 13 )
My current career goal in life is to become an author/wife/mother. Tall order? I think not.
( 14 )
I use elipses way too much in my blog posts . . . See I told ya!?
( 15 )
I'm a lover of stories. Fairy Tales have always been my favorite kind.
( 16 )
I've picked One-Word to focus on for the past two years. Last year my word was PEACE and this year it's EMBRACE.
( 17 )
I review books from time to time for Blogging For Books, DJC Communications, Team Novel Teen and the Z-Street Team. I absolutely love reading YA Fiction, Science Fiction, Fantasy and Dystopia.
( 18 )
I've been playing piano since I was 6 (ahem, that would be for nearly 18 years.) Woot! 18 for 18.
( 19 )
I am here to be an encourager, to document my life and to make Jesus famous.
( 20 )
I am an INFJ. Knowing this fact might just help you to understand me all the better.
( 21 )
My closet is color-coded, my DVD's are all alphabetized and my bookshelf is organized by book-height. In short, I love cleaning/organization!
( 22 )
( 23 )
I'm a recovering perfectionist. Like, seriously . . . You don't even want to know how long it took me to come up with the *perfect* 23 unique things to tell ya'll about myself! (Pssst! By the way, I chose 23 things because, well, I *am* 23!)
/ / /
I'd love to get to know you too! So, why not tell me 5 unique things about yourself in the comments section below?
