About Me

I am terrible at talking about myself, I never know what to say and feel like what I have to say is kinda boring. Truly, the important aspects of who I am are written about here in this blog. However, the following may fill in some back story.
I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Psychology, which I plan to never correctly use, after I discovered how useless an Animal Behavior degree would be for me. However, my change in degree path had nothing to do with a change in interests. I have always had a deep love of anything animal. Currently, my home is like Noah's Ark; we house 2 humans, 2 dogs, 2 cats, and 2 bunnies. In the past, I have had iguanas, chickens, chinchillas, ducks, fish, squirrels, various rodents, and several reptiles. 
I have been exploring my artistic side since I was a child. Growing up, I regularly used to paint, color, and make clothes for my barbies. Now, my interests lean more towards sewing and crafts like making masks, stuffed animals, and so on. I am nowhere near the professional level, but I really love working on a project and seeing my ability level increase. 
I am very interested in the way media and society effect self-image, particularly for women. I have been exploring how my own self-image has been shaped by these outlets and whether it's in the way I would like it to be. I am trying very hard to define myself by my own beliefs and not the ones I learned from others. This subject means a lot to me and I plan to spend a lot of time delving into this area.
I have so many important people in my life. My family has always been a huge source of support and love in my life. My parents are wonderful and accomplished individuals who devoted their lives to raising their children. I am the oldest of 3 sisters. My younger sisters are both very beautiful, talented, and amazing people. The three of us are very different, but it's the similarities that I am continually noticing. Mark changed my life. Since I have been with him, I have become a better and happier person. He pushes me to become the best version of me I can be and puts up with my nonsense, most of the time. My adult life has been positively defined by my relationship with him. I have so many important friends that mean the world to me. They have been there for me when I needed them the most and when I didn't even know I needed them. I am so very lucky to have so many fantastic people in my life. I know that they will always have my back and be there to pick me up when I fall. 
I started blogging as a way to express my ideas and teach others how to create some of the crafts I make. I get immense pleasure out of seeing people read my posts and (hopefully) get something out of them. Any suggestions on how to make this a better blog, please tell me!
