This is a tough blog to do because I don’t like talking about myself. I like talking about my family or what new renovations we’re doing on the house or what’s going on with my kids or my writing group, but never ever do I like to talk about me.
I think it’s because if I say too much and let people know what I’ve done or things I’ve done, then I open myself up to them too much and they become familiar with me.
I’ve always kept myself guarded. That is to say it’s easier for me to keep my history to myself so people don’t have things to say about me.
In hindsight, I probably don’t make friends easily because people think I’m too serious, or I intimidate them. That makes me grin actually because that’s not really the person I am. I have a few close friends who really know me, but I don’t put myself ‘out there’ easily for people to get to know me.
A little about me…I have a degree in Fashion Design. I worked at Levi’s for a while designing jeans. I had my own company designing stagewear for country stars (a few big names), and I enjoy anything that’s creative and allows me to be artsy. I spent quite a few years working my way up in a large transportation company of 8000, becoming the 3rd highest woman, responsible for a crew of 100 men. Now that’s something I enjoyed–working with men. They’re not like women. They don’t talk behind your back. If they have something to say, they say it straight out and it’s easy to deal with. I love people like that, who say what’s on their mind. I’ve been an office manager with a staff of 100 women, an operations manager, and a project manager. I was very good at it, but I missed having creativity in my life. There was no time for it.
Now, I spend most of my time renovating my house and writing which I enjoy. I love ripping out walls, designing and re-designing things and being creative.
I wanted to be an architect when I was younger, but didn’t have the history credits for it, so I opted for something I was already good at-fashion design (I had been sewing and designing since I was 9).
That’s why I love writing. I can write about all the ideas in my head and make stories out of them, and I love that. My mind is constantly coming up with new stories, and I’m always thinking of something creative to write about, and that’s ME! That’s who I am!
Wow! That was hard to say, although that’s just skimming the surface. It’s hard to really get to know me, but maybe that helps understand me a little. I have 3 teens who drive me crazy and I love to death, and a boyfriend named Jim…but that’s a whole other blog….HAH!
If you write a comment in my blog, mention one or two things you like doing so I get to know you better too!
And thanks for reading. 🙂
