Alright alright alriiiiiiiiight. Let's get this blog train started, shall we?
(Linking up for Jenni's Blog Everyday challenge, of course.)

Day One: The story of your life in 250 words or less

Born in 88, just like the Kid Cudi song. Grew up in Winston-Salem, NC, then I went to college in Greensboro, where I still live. I met my fiancé in 2009, but we didn’t start dating until 2012. I have a 23 year old brother and two pretty great parents. I have two best friends, one who I met in high school in gym class, and one that I met my first day of college. Our first conversation was about poop. Now, she’s my maid of honor! I have a dual degree in Elementary Education and Special Education, but I decided a long time ago that teaching wasn’t for me. I started blogging 3.5 years ago and it is hands down one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Ever. I’ve learned so much and met the best people. Despite hanging out in Blogland all the time, you’ll probably never see me with a bubble necklace on. I love going to Target, painting my fingernails, and buying used books. My television is usually on Bravo. You’ll never hear me say ‘no’ to another cup of coffee.

Boom! That was only 186 words. All those boys that I dated in the past that said that I talked too much can suck it. Baaaaaahahah.

I think I am going to follow along, but because I just did the A-Z Challenge in April, I am challenged out :)

Nice job on the 186 words!

Thanks for stopping by! For some reason blogger isn't emailing me your comment but I checked on my post and saw it. Oh, internet. I'm a pretty new blogger, mostly because I saw how much fun everyone else had doing it. Let's bond over our unfiltered-ness and shared love of coffee, shall we?

Haha, I like this! It's fun to think of how to give a quick snapshot of who we are. I'm loving this link-up, too!

What in the world.. my best friend and I seriously talked about poop before anything else. Maybe it's in the best friend, stars? NO? no. Yes.

Girl, listen. I've got you in this, a month? Let's dive in. Bubble necklaces. Let's create an anti-fan club.

I just found your blog. I grew up in High Point, went to UNCG and now live in Raleigh. Small world! I got a Human Development and Family Studies degree and tried out the teaching route and it was a no-go too. Just curious what you do now? Look forward to reading more! Take care, Kristin
