Who, Me?

I graduated from EKU in Richmond, KY with a degree in Psychology and a minor in Child & Family Studies and I am currently employed in my area of study going on 6 years now.  I live in Winchester, KY just on the outskirts of the city life in Lexington and I am enjoying it so far.  I have the comfort of a smaller, quieter, sleepier little town with the bustle and lights of the small city only a short drive away.  I have a wonderful, hardworking, artistic, sometimes crazy man to share my adorable little home with who always knows exactly what I’m thinking and just what to do to make me laugh.  We have a precious, anxiety ridden, spoiled little chiweenie named Nina that will eat anything she can find (even if it isn’t food) and is my constant shadow AND a blue and gold Macaw named Cleo that requires naps around noon every day, loves rap and death metal, and is a better guard dog than our actual dog to round out our happy little family.

Writing has always been a wonderful outlet for me. For a long time, I kept my writings very secret. The thought of someone reading something I’d written made me nervous, like these phrases and stings of words were pieces of my insides that I was just exposing. In addition to this fear, my free time was sucked away by the responsibilities of adult life and I lost my interest in writing. Let me rephrase – I never lost interest. My creativity was always there, but my drive was overcome with mental exhaustion. I think the pressure of my career made me snap, because I suddenly had this overwhelming urge to write. Just…write. About anything, about everything. And I wanted it to be out there, for anyone and everyone to read.

It’s been a couple years now, and here I still am putting all my thoughts, creations, and ramblings out into cyberspace. It’s still scary, and I think it always will be no matter how long I continue to write, but I think it just might be worth it…
