Once again, nominating is hard, so I am doing another blanket nomination, because everyone I read is so inspiring in their own way. And I can’t thank everyone enough for being so.
Seven Things About Me:
1. I’ve said I collect notebooks and blank books for writing purposes. As it stands, I have 21 blank books, 73 notebooks, 13 notepads, 2 packs of note cards, 7 reams of paper ready to be put into binders, 2 sketchbooks (one big, one tiny), and 1 dream journal. Oh, and also my 27 past personal journals which are all full of writing. Total, that’s 146. But not all of them have writing and doodles in them! Not yet, anyway…. The bad thing is, I’m always on the lookout for more!
2. The only time I have ever worn high heel shoes was when I was really little and playing dress-up. And even then, I couldn’t walk in them – it was more an awkward shuffle, grating along the floor. I will never ever wear stilettos or high heels. I just can’t do it.
3. This is a bit weird, but if I’m in a neighborhood I don’t know, I don’t necessarily see it as is. I mean, I do, with all the houses and lawns and trees and streets and sidewalks. But I try to imagine what the neighborhood would look like on an autumn day, with the trees branches losing leaves, said leaves strewn across the streets and front lawns, and the sidewalks damp from a rain or mist spouting from a tin-colored sky. And then I try to imagine what the houses would look like decorated for Halloween. Weird, I know.
4. That said, I tend to associate autumn with renewal, not spring. I think it’s because the school year starts in autumn, and everything seemed new around that time of year – from clothes to school supplies. So.
5. This is story-related. I’m debating whether or not to write my story as a typical story (with chapters, events in sequential order, etc.) or in vignette form (like in Sandra Cisneros’ The House on Mango Street and Susanna Kaysen’s Girl, Interrupted). Hmm….
6. My top six most favorite cartoons shows ever are, in order: “Daria,” “Invader Zim,” “Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends,” “Animaniacs,” “Ed Edd n Eddy,” and “Garfield and Friends.”
7. Sticking with cartoons, some of my favorite animated movies of all time are, in no particular order: Disney’s “Sleeping Beauty,” most of the Pixar films, “The Point,” “The Hobbit” (yes, it exists in animated form; great voice cast, too), and “The Secret of N.I.M.H.”
