a condensed autobiography.
This month, I am taking part in Blog Every Day In May, which is a blogging challenge hosted by Jenni. While I won't be using her prompts every single day, there will indeed be something posted in this space for each of May's thirty-one days. I'm looking forward to the blogging reset this exercise will hopefully bring about for me, & I can't wait to see what everyone else will be writing about.
Now, for a little bit about me, & where I came from.
My name is Lauren, & I was born on a Friday evening in August of 1986. I'm convinced that my evening-time arrival is the reason it's impossible for me to be the highly-sought-after morning person that I wish I could be. Instead, I've got night owl status on lock. I attended a private, Catholic school for eight years, where I got a good education, but where people weren't very nice. That was hard for a shy gal who only wanted to be in gymnastics class. I talked briefly about my gymnastics experience here. When I went to public school for the first time as a high school freshman, I was overwhelmed by the fact that everyone could be friends with everyone. All the kids were so accepting & nice, & I felt like I had finally found my place. It turns out that this place was where I'd have my first boyfriend, a very cute but very controlling lad. In the end, I met my husband in college, at the fraternity house I'd eventually become sweetheart of. We migrated from Shreveport, Louisiana to Wilmington, North Carolina, where we currently live. I am about to return to school & go in a direction I've been wanting to go in for a while. Though I'm going in an admittedly different direction, I will always consider myself a writer & intend to write both novels & children's books in the future.
Whew! 250 words exactly! Go share your life story over on Jenni's blog.
