Hello, and welcome to the "About Me" page! This page exists simply because I feel as though it's only fair to tell you a little bit about myself. You know, since you've done me the courtesy of visiting my blog.
So, some quick basics to get things rolling. My name is Sarah, born and raised in Texas. I'm 24 years old and I've been blogging here since 2008. I'm currently attending Texas A&M, working on my Bachelor's degree in English—with an emphasis in Creative Writing—and a minor in Sociology. I graduate this December. YIKES.
I've loved writing as long as I can remember. I had aspirations in my younger days to be published as a teen. Although that didn't happen, I am currently working on a novel and I'm pretty darn proud of that. I started this blog while I was taking a creative writing course at TCC. My professor, Yvonne Jocks (pseudonym Evelyn Vaughn) was in the process of teaching us about creative non-fiction, and one of her examples was an extremely hillarious blog called Miss Doxie. Reading her blog, laughing out loud, nearly wetting myself made me want to better my skills at such a craft. Hence, the blog.
Here I like to work on my own voice, my writing style—all important parts of creative non-fiction. But I also post poetry and fiction. Call it well-rounded, if you want. That sounds like a good thing.
I'm an adopted only child, a fact that I'm quite proud of. When I say I'm adopted, often people will ask me if I know my real family, and that question always strikes me as unintentionally absurd. I AM with my real family, I've never not considered my parents my real family. I know my real family and I love them immensely. I've never met my birth parents, and no, that doesn't particularly eat at me and drive me crazy. As far as I'm concerned, I have the parents that God intended and I couldn't be happier.
I'm very close with my family. Even though I'm off at college, I call them regularly and I like to visit when I can. I'm very fortunate to have such a good relationship with my parents.
And let me just say, family reunions are a blast! I have an excellent family, of that I am certain. :)
My Baby Dog
Yes, I have a dog that might as well be my baby. His name is Tucker, and he's a pretty rad little dude. My Super Granny helped me find him, and it was love at first sight.
So, that's a little about myself.
