I write to help me process life. Sometimes it becomes entertaining for other people. I spend hours on a blog that is dear to my heart that doesn’t get a lot of attention. I get random pieces that take me 30 seconds to write that fly around the world. You readers are funny people.
I’m not very creative, but I’m strategic. I like my ability to connect seemingly unconnected things. I like that there is a world that’s so interconnected yet thinks it’s so separated and distant. I love people, and Jesus.
I laugh when I’m happy, and I laugh when I’m overwhelmed, and I laugh when someone says something really profound (or ridiculous). I wonder how differently my posts would be received if you heard me speak them to you – with laughter all sprinkled through.
I love being 31. Since I was 21, I couldn’t wait to be 30. I’m here now, and It’s awesome. I’m a delighted resident of Chicago, the greatest city in the world. I work in development for a local non-profit, faith-based after-school program – building bridges between people with really big hearts to serve kids and the kids who need their love the most.
I attend a phenomenal church that urges me to believe in a big and powerful God and that calls out the best in me – allowing me to be the best version that I was created to be. Attending here allows me the opportunity to run alongside giants and see God’s Kingdom advance. If that makes no sense to you, come visit sometime.
I have an incredible boyfriend who didn’t get scared away by my post about dating blogs and who I found at church – not on a dating blog.
My dreams include: getting an MBA, writing so well it gets into a real newspaper, seeing God instantly heal a bullet wound from someone’s body, acting as a mom to lots of kids, and speaking at youth development conferences.
Other goals entail: watching Lord of the Rings so I stop getting made fun of, owning a Weimereiner, starting a business (or 5), being a really good sister and daughter and friend, and incorporating fun and rest into every day.
Ask me tomorrow – the list will change, morph, be added to, or things dropped off.
Thanks for reading my blog.
