Author has written 1 story for Office.
I'm a pretty average 20-something Mid-western female. I'm slowly but surely working on a master's degree in political science at a major public university after spending a small fortune on two undergrad degrees at a VERY expensive private liberal arts college. I work full time to pay my bills and take classes at night. I own my own home, so I spend all free time working on it. I already remodeled my bathroom almost entirely by myself, refinished the hardwood floors and landscaped the front lawn, also all by my independent self. The next big project is my fugly 1970s kitchen.
As far as fanfiction goes, I really don't know how I got into this. (Yeah, I just ended a sentence with a preposition!) I am obsessed with The Office, so I guess one night I was wasting time online looking at pictures of my future husband, John Krasinski, and then I stumbled onto this site. I even started one story of my own, but I've been very neglectful of it lately because it's summer, and I'm a SummerBelle! I spend my days working on my flowerbeds and taking my dog for walks, and my nights grilling out in my backyard and watching Cardinals games. Did I mention I'm a die-hard Cards fan? I believe in the Church of Baseball and cannot understand people who don't like baseball. I literally can't wrap my mind around the concept.
I've been reading a lot of Veronica Mars and Friday Night Lights stories lately because I love both series. It's rare to see such compelling material on tv. Sure, The Office is amazingly funny, but both Veronica Mars and Friday Night Lights are almost perfection. I really like Lost too, but I HATE science fiction and I've been very disappointed lately when it turned towards the paranormal storylines. I like reality and have no imagination. I'm a grown-up: people don't randomly burst into song, there is no such thing as vampires, black smoke monsters, or time travel, and the Cubs will never win the World Series because they suck, not because of some stupid curse.
Finally, while I'm in the midst of this unexpected rant, I hate bad spelling and grammar. As an academic who spends about 30 of my waking hours either reading or writing, there is no excuse in this day and age to not be able to spell something correctly and use the word properly in a sentence. I just can't stand it, especially people who spell definitely "definately." I think a little piece of my soul dies every time I read it. I'm also not a big fan of cutesy couple names and internet-speak, but my cold heart is softening towards them.
So, if you have any questions, just ask. As you probably already can tell, I'm not shy.
