Hello world this is me, or ate least some of me. I wonder how personal or candid I want to be? I want to be both so I have decided no names, nicknames are more fun anyhow, or at least I think so. I am young-ish, mid twenties, a "romantic" by claim but a total stubborn realist in reality. probably the most un-spotaneous person that you have met this side of the Rockies and I think way to much for my own good. I am completely high maintenance and my own worst critic, but I have no qualms whatsoever with my faults because I'll admit them to anyone- I am not perfect, far from but they make me who I am.
I live in a beautiful southern metropolis, yet is a monstrosity all at the same time. I love the city but at the end of the day I miss the simplicity, the small town draw, beauty shop gossip, roper wearing (though I have never owned a pair), wonderful childhood and people that make up the small town at that I call home. I wanted nothing more than to leave the "hell hole" through out my adolescence, and leave I did with more fury and fire than I had ever done anything in my life. To this day my mother cries at the idea of how her baby left home. Not that it was anything against my family, they are the most amazing people in this world and I am proud to call my parents two of my best friends. That's a whole other story though- needless to say I am glad I left because I now have such an appreciation for the town and place that my father's family has called home since the 1890's, and an appreciation for the small amount of time I get to spend there now as an adult- but time so filled with happiness.
My days are spent hour after hour talking to people, making people happy and saying I am sorry that your tea is watered down, or your burger is over cooked- "why Mr. Jones it would be my pleasure to replace your hamburger, and throw in a dessert". That's right I am a restaurant manager for a large corporation- line up people it does not get much better than this. Now don't get me wrong in this economy it is a blessing everyday I wake up and have a job. Gone are the days that I wore cocktail dresses to the beautiful steakhouse that I once called my home away from home and got my start in this business; gone is the restaurant itself. Like many in this economy succumbed to the lack of business. I constantly smell like a french fry and work a ridiculous amount of hours for a ridiculously little amount of pay- but hey one day when I finally finish school I will look back and it will ALL be worth it.
One thing I can give credit to my job that I curse most of the time is without it I would not have in my life what makes me happiest- my boyfriend. We both work for the same company and months after meeting at a mundane meeting, then a by chance email sent by a ever so sneaky friend we find ourselves happy as clams with two amazing dogs and a pretty great life if I do say so myself. He brings me back down to earth when I need it and deal with my ridiculous antics though he doesn't understand them 99% of the time. He's pretty great...I hope all the great girls out there will one day be able to say that and to have someone treat them as well as I am treated.
So this little synopsis is turning into a little spiel- I will try to sum myself up in fewer words than said above...
I am quirky beyond all means, tad sarcastic, lover of the arts, good boss unless you piss me off, very family oriented, not a bad cook if I say so myself, loyal to no means and an all around okay person- if you don't think so that's okay with me too....

So I started this blog last Fall and while I had every intention of spending lots of time with it and updating often with all the beautiful ideas I stumble upon on a daily basis, along with other small antidotes from this wonderful things we call life- something even more real set in; reality. Guess what I am human and don't always have the time to spend with it- but I love to write and share and gather my ideas and thoughts so by gosh I am going to make a point! I am going to do it even if no one reads it but me :). So day one of this new "experiment" if you will.I doubt I will make blog history or have my story made into a movie but o-well maybe someone somewhere will get an idea, or at least a laugh at my expense :)
