so let's start. ohh, i just got the chills. ok ready. wait... now i'm ready. no. do you see my problem? starting something new is always a little scary and exciting and sort of makes your head swim. let's start with me - since i will be the driver of this runaway train. i'm corey. and despite years of studying writing and my newly acquired master's degree, i just don't like capital letters. they feel angry to me. so it will likely be rare that you find them here. plus, when i get a good idea going and it's just flowing and smooth and moving right along, i can't be bothered with nonsense like hitting the shift key. lazy? maybe. it's not that i don't appreciate great, immacualte, mind numbing grammar, it's just that here, in my space, i just don't wanna. i'll refrain from stomping around like an angry toddler and just move on, for now.
it has been a busy year so far for me, good ol' 2012. i finished my thesis, titled "I Am The Tornado" (capital letters needed for this, because i spent so long perfecting it, i don't know, it feels right). it's a memoir - and before the image of a middle aged woman swims into your mind, just wait. i'm 27 and the story is about my childhood and my ever-turbulant life thus far. i worked my behind off on it and i am rather proud of the final prduct. it is honest and funny - mostly poking fun at myself and some of the unflattering moments in my life. either way, i did it. and now i have a shiny new master's degree in writing to show for it! go me!
i also got married! yay! let me just say that my now husband matt is fantastic. he is so supportive and kind and patient. we got married in march at a private house on the water in jupiter, fl near where we live. i'll post some of the pictures here soon, but it was literally the best day of my life. we have such incredible family and friends and the day was full of love.
|matt, me, and junebug <3|
so, i'm going to talk about what i love, what inspires me, fun tidbits i find out in the world, lovely/silly/yummy how-to's and all sorts of good stuff. until next time, cheers!
