outside of a requirement for a class, but here I am, starting one of my own. I think it’s mainly a result of graduating last May and the lack of writing papers has left a void in my English major soul. So, I have decided to start one for a few reasons (not that anyone particularly cares, but I feel the need to justify it to myself).
Speaking of myself, I guess I’ll do a little introductory paragraph about me.
My name is Tenille, I’m twenty-three, and I live with my fantastic boyfriend Matt, who deals with my insanity on a daily basis. We live in Virginia, but wish we were in New Zealand so we could pretend we were in Lord of the Rings. Yes, we are nerds.
Here are my super interesting reasons for starting a blog:
1. As per usual, one of my New Year’s Resolutions is to become healthier and more fit. Perhaps a blog will make me feel more accountable to stick with it, knowing other people will know if I fail and keep me from eating my weight in chocolate and potatoes (two separate items, I don’t eat chocolate mixed with potatoes…although it could be delicious) whenever the opportunity presents itself, or I make it present itself.
2. I have become a pinterest junkie. DIY crafts are a permanent part of my foreseeable future and I’d like a place to showcase my new-found “talents”. Talents such as pouring boiling water all over my left hand, while crafting a new candle out of all the dredges of my old candles. Talents like trying to create a plant terrarium, but buying too large of plants and really just having glass plant holders (they still look really cool though) I wouldn’t have realized they weren’t terrariums if my supportive mother had taken one look at them and said “I thought terrariums meant the plants were inside the glass”. Thanks, mom. I’ll eventually post pictures of these two projects and the impending third one that will take place this weekend.
3. Sometimes, my life can be hilarious, frustrating, etc. and it will be nice having a way to immortalize these happenings.
So, that’s what you can expect from this blog; a random hodge-podge of potentially useful exercise tips, recipes, crafts, stories and anything else I feel like sharing.
