Hello lovely readers!
My name's Nicki and I'm currently in college so if I don't update very often, that's why.
I'm studying to be a high school English teacher but I'm minoring in Writing. My plan A is to be an author but that's not exactly a lucrative career path for college grads who are $40,000 in debt so I have to stick with my plan B which is to mold the young and supple minds of America's future. I live in the Midwest region of the lovely country known as America and I wouldn't have it any other way. I have a sister and a brother and I love them both dearly. My parents are one in a million and are still married after 25 years! (Go mom and dad!)
I'm in the beautiful sorority known as Sigma Sigma Sigma and I wouldn't trade it for the world. One of my sorority sisters told me I should write a book about being in a sorority and I don't think it's a bad idea. How many women would feel better about college if they had an idea of what to expect out of Greek life? I know I would've loved a beginners manual or something!
I love to read and write. They're two of my favorite pass times. Running is my favorite way to exercise. I love to eat. I don't understand people who are picky eaters or vegetarians. I don't judge them or view them any differently than anyone who's not a vegetarian or a picky eater, I just don't understand them. I love to watch television and movies. Both are a HUGE deal in my household. My family participates in the annual Best Picture movie marathon the Saturday before the Oscars. We're filled to the brim with fun and useless facts about pop culture, celebrities, films, and television shows. My father could tell you anything you want to know about any football or baseball player. I could tell you anything about the Royals.
I'm awful at Science and ever worse at Math. I had a friend tell me once that if I make Math my best subject then everything else would come easy. I laughed at her and told her just to tutor me. I like school but I hate class. I know, right? I like going to school for the social aspect but I hate having to wake up early and drive to campus and listen to people talk to me about stupid stuff that I'm not even going to use in real life. People used to get by just fine without all this extra schooling, I'm sure we could, too.
Anyway! I really appreciate you reading my stuff. I work hard on it and it makes me more confident to pursue my actual fiction writing! I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it! I love to hear from you!
"Avoid using the word 'very' because it's lazy. A man is not very tired he is exhausted. Don't use 'very sad', use morose. Language was invented for one reason, boys- to woo women- and, in that endeavor, laziness will not do."- Robin Williams (Dead Poets Society)
I've just started a blog on wordpress. comeawaytothedarkness.wordpress.com is where you'll find me if you want to take a peek. I'm going to try to post something everyday but we'll see how that goes.
