I suppose I should begin with a normal introduction, but that’s not quite my speed. I should really start with WHY I want to write a blog in the first place. Let’s make a list. I love lists. I love lists a lot. (Three cheers for alliteration in an introductory blog post!)
Reason #1: I have a ton of hobbies. I dabble in many, many craft genres. Knitting, crocheting, making jewelry, sewing, drawing, painting, blah, blah, blah. Some would say I am a jack of all trades, a master of none. I say that’s a challenge.
Reason #2: I am a procrastinator. I’m sure everyone puts things off from time to time, but the fact is that I do it way too often! If I have a set schedule of blog posts, maybe (just maybe) I’ll finish up the 9,000 projects I have…in a timely manner!
Reason #3: I am forgetful. I have a terrible memory, and there are parts of my life that I just can’t recall as well as I used to. I hope that this blog will serve me the same way a personal diary would serve anyone else. I’ll be able to look back at blog posts and get all warm and fuzzy inside. Or cringe at my terrible grammar and corny metaphors.
Reason #4: I am disorganized. I suppose this goes hand in hand with Reason #2, but I could really use an overhaul when it comes to my organization skill set. If you don’t believe me, feel free to take a gander at my work desk or lab bench. Writing a blog…a GOOD blog…requires time management and planning ahead. That little desk calendar I bought is screaming to actually be used.
Reason #5: I like people. Although I spend a good majority of my time as a hermit, I actually do like chatting with friends and making new ones. Really! I hope you find me entertaining enough to follow my posts, and maybe we can teach each other new tricks.
Well, I suppose that’s about it. I’m sure there are tedious other reasons I could go on and on about, but I’ll spare you that misery. Now we can get down to the introduction.
My name is Gabriella. I’m 26, a newlywed, a PhD student. There’s a Wonderland inside my head.
“Alice was not a bit hurt, and she jumped up on to her feet in a moment: she looked up, but it was all dark overhead; before her was another long passage, and the White Rabbit was still in sight, hurrying down it. There was not a moment to be lost: away went Alice like the wind, and was just in time to hear it say, as it turned a corner, `Oh my ears and whiskers, how late it’s getting!’ She was close behind it when she turned the corner, but the Rabbit was no longer to be seen: she found herself in a long, low hall, which was lit up by a row of lamps hanging from the roof.” – Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
