About me

Industry Non-Profit
Occupation Assistant Event Coordinator, Co-Owner of a Used Bookstore
Location Mentone, Indiana, United States
Introduction I live in a small town in Northern Indiana and by small I mean a population of less than 900 people. Random facts: I love to read! I have over 1,000 books in my own personal library and I'm constantly adding to it whether it be from Amazon, a garage sale, or my favorite used bookstores. I enjoy getting recommendations from people and I always try to read what others suggest. I hate shoes! I have nothing against people who love shoes, I would just rather run around bare foot all the time. My family jokes that my name should be tough feet because my feet are so callused, but what can I say my feet like to be free.(I know that was a totally random and well weird thing to say, but that's me.) I enjoy writing, whether it be stories or poetry, however I really don't take as much time to write as I wish I could. Accents, love them! I wish I had one, of course I'm sure others would say I do, but I still enjoy pretending and making attempts at speaking with different accents.

When you open your eyes underwater, do you ever worry that you'll drown?

It has never occurred to me to think that. Swimming comes second nature to me, my friends joke that I was a mermaid in my first life.
