10 Things You Don’t Know About Me…

Ok…so I’ve been tasked with doing something out of the ordinary, so here goes….I’m going to make an attempt at a normal, every day post. Don’t get too excited, this probably won’t happen again, but I do love a challenge….

10 Things You Don’t Know About Me:

10. I have ADHD. If you have ever met me, live and in person, this won’t surprise you. I don’t focus well, and my randomness can be completely attributed to it. However, when I’m into something, it becomes very difficult to break my focus from it. Which brings me to my next item….

9. I read anywhere between 3 and 5 books a week. Its the only thing that I do regularly that doesn’t force me to sit still. I just do it. Words and stories are something that I have loved all my life. Ever since I was small and could hold a book in my hands, the words ‘Once upon a time…’ have held me in rapture.

 

A random stack of books that was sitting on my bed. Yeah, I know….

8. My hair has been every color of the rainbow. Sometimes all at once, sometimes in streaks, but its always changing. I keep it long and wild because its a better canvas to showcase my ever evolving personality.

 

This is one of the few pics I have of myself with different colored hair…I HATE to have my picture taken…

 

7. I don’t date.

6. I’ve always wanted to be a writer.

5. I turn 31 this year, and that terrifies me. But so did turning 30, so I guess I should be used to it by now.

4. I love things that sparkle. I’m kind of like a pixie in that regard. If it sparkles, is shiny, is book or shoe related, I’m fully entranced.

 

 

3. Working for myself is a big goal of mine this year. I’ve already started the process and I hope you guys will stick around for the ride.

 

 

2. Batman is my favorite male superhero. Wonder Woman is my favorite female superhero. Though, She-Ra ranks a close second in that regard.

 

Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman

 

And the number one thing you don’t know about me is…….

 

1. I strive, every day, to be like my Grandmother. She was an amazing, intelligent, loving, open minded, and accepting woman, and if I can be just a tenth of what she was in life, I will have succeeded. One day I’ll have to tell you the story of how my grandparents met and fell in love….and stayed together for 60 years. Its a magical story. One I want for me one day.

 

My Gram and Gramps. I hope they were happily reunited on another plane of existence. 🙂

 

So there you have it. A normal, every day post from a random, not so every day kind of girl. Hope you Y’all liked it!

    I love this post! I love all your stuff! Purple AND sparkly, those are my kind of shoes and can I read those books when you’ve finished with them 😉

    • Nerdy Girl says:

      Hehe…if purple and sparkly are your thing, I have a pink pair, a gold pair, a green pair and a turquoise pair. Why? because they were 5 dollars a piece!

      I love a fellow reader!! What are your top five books right now?

      • Lily Wight says:

        Good question, I have books for “business” and books for “pleasure” – just read (and loved) the second part of Russell Brand’s autobiography, Booky Wook Two and an anthology of tales by German Romantic Surrealist ETA Hoffman. I’ve just started on a translation of The Nutcracker and I’ve got Freud’s essay on The Uncanny lined-up.
        Hardwork and not enough pleasure there! I have a lovely hardback of The Invention of Hugo Cabret that is calling me!
        Thanks for asking

        Thanks for asking (and post more shoe pics!) xx

      • Nerdy Girl says:

        Holy cow. That is some hard core reading!! I read Russell Brand’s first Booky Wook, and enjoyed it, but didn’t really have the gumption to go back for more with the second. What do you study? or do for work? Some of those titles are heavy duty…

        More shoe pics? OH, I can TOTALLY handle that! 🙂

        Someone on Twitter said they were having “a Mythology headache”, I know completely what they mean.
        As a postgrad. I speacialised in the Evolution of Mythology (through Legend, Fairytales and Fables etc) primarily King Arthur (Celtic and European stuff) but I’m always trying to broaden my knowledge and read supporting material like psychology and history. At the moment I’m researching for a book I’d like to write, I’m trying to get my “study head” back on because I’ve been working as an Events Manager on Sci-Fi and Fantasy conventions for 4 years (and still am!)
        I have a week off now and I intend to read something sensational AND trashy 🙂 xxx

      • Nerdy Girl says:

        Lily! What I wouldn’t give for a stinking week off! I too love mythology, but you took it one step further (I never could pick a major, I’m just learning everything 🙂 ) OH you must have SOOOO much fun at your conventions. Can I come? Pretty please? You can put me to work even…..

        In your week off, if you haven’t already, you really do need to try out some Kresley Cole. Her Immortals After Dark series is both sensational and trashy (and absolutely the only kind of filthy a reader can love!) I just love a good trashy novel, don’t you? 😉

      • Lily Wight says:

        I LOVE a bit of trash! A while ago I read Anne Rice’s Beauty Trilogy (written as A N Roquelaure) and my eyes nearly fell out!
        I like the sound of the Cole books. I think I’ve seen the covers in the bookshop and they definitely look like my kind of thing 🙂
        Of course you can have a convention invite (if you’re in the UK?!). We are currently scouting for new conventions for some Sci/Fantasy memorabilia fairs x

      • Nerdy Girl says:

        Drat! I’m in the US. 😦 The UK is definitely where I would like to be. But alas, that may be a few years out.

        I love the Beauty Trilogy (I read them the first time back in high school)! I think you’ll like the Cole books, especially if you like those. Cole’s books are pretty tantalizing. 😉 And there is a whole lot of mythology in there.

    I’m intrigued now, hope you tell us about your grandparents soon. I love the Game of thrones books, have read all of them so far, I like my books quite a lot like you, I just hate reading series that are still being written because I am so impatient. x

    • Nerdy Girl says:

      Maybe I’ll talk about that story in my next post. I’m not sure yet. My heart still hurts from the loss of her earlier this year, even though she hadn’t been with us mentally for some months before.

      I too am becoming obsessed with the Game of Throne books….and am also incredibly impatient. What kills me is that some writers have been writing the same series for almost 20 years now. I started reading most of these series within the last few years, and I still out pace them! Why is that?!?! Its so nice to find people in the world who have similar tastes in everything…:)
