Introducing Me

Amy @ MevolvingSo I was paying a visit to Jacqueline’s blog Blessings Abound Mommy yesterday and ran in to her introduction thread. While I have done a few getting to know me posts before I love the idea of getting to know the face behind a blog, being known for more than a logo, a blog name or a potential graduate student. Unlike Jacqueline; however, I don’t find myself with the words to put together a beautifully written story and so I will present you with a list much like my ten things about me list so that you can get to know more about me.

– My name is Amy, I am 28 years old, I will turn 29 this year.
– I spent most of my childhood in small towns in England where I was born and raised.
– At the age of 12 I moved to North Carolina with my two brothers, my sister and my parents.
– I attended a private school from 8th grade through 10th grade and moved to public school for 11th through 12th grade.
– I obtained my BA in psychology, graduating college in 3 1/2 years and I went on to teach myself web design and online marketing with help from Buzz.
– I met Buzz during my Junior year in college, we began dating in 2001.
– I swam, ran track, did tae kwon do and kickboxing before beginning college; however, in college I became lazy and the most exercise I did was walking across campus.
– Since college graduation I have been self employed, during college I worked at Walmart and later in credit card and mortgage collections (most traumatizing job ever.)
– I am a dog person, always have been and always will be. I am allergic to cats.
– My ideal career choice would be contracting for DOD and analyzing vocal recordings, interrogations and surveillance footage.
– I am detail oriented and hate leaving loose ends untied.
– I have a scar on the right side of my top lip after falling face first in to a rocky river on my birthday after Jet saw something and took off running. Buzz laughed. Me, not so much.
– My front teeth are crooked after falling face first in to a TV stand as a child- do you see a falling theme yet?
– I have only ever broken my collarbone, fingers and toes never any arms or legs.
– I keep lists of everything everywhere because my short term memory is lacking.
– Jimmy Stewart is and always will be my ideal man.
– I don’t like horror movies.
– I like opera music and was fortunate enough to see Pavarotti live before he died.
– My favorite color is yellow
– My favorite flower is the daffodil
– My English accent comes and goes dependent upon who I am talking to.
– Once I own my own home I intend on owning a beehive and an ant colony, both insects fascinate me.
– I cannot drive a manual car. By cannot I mean I could, possibly, in an emergency bunny hop to a hospital but unless you want a ruined transmission don’t ever let me drive your manual car.
– I can shoot a gun and shoot it well.
– I have a significantly large tattoo on my upper back as well as two other smaller tattoos one of which I want to get removed.

So there you have it, 25 new facts about me…if we keep this up I’ll run out of facts! Now it’s your turn, introduce yourself and let us know you as more than a blog name and a logo.

    I did a list too because I can’t write a story about me. It’s in my about me. Probably need updating.

    I love knowing you better.

    That’s awesome that you got to see Pavarotti before he died. I would have loved to and actually wish to see Bocelli and others.

    I can’t wait to practice my shot and get my license. I can’t take the kids to the range, they are too young and I don’t do babysitters, so I’ll just wait a little.

    I can’t drive a manual either. I wouldn’t know the first thing to do. I guess I’d like to learn, just in case. I have been spoileed by transmission šŸ™‚

    You are such an interesting gal! Thanks for sharing. Going to read your other lists and I’m totally late for Monday Mingle, but I am here!

      You should update your list! The idea on Momdot was talking about how we all have about us pages but no one ever updates them they just “set them and forget them” LOL.

      Andrea Bocelli would be amazing to see in concert, I’d definitely go if he came close to us!
