Where I’m coming from

Because we all know I did not spring into being in college… Ah those formative years

In the beginning… I lived from Conception (Ocean City Baby!) to Puberty in Maryland where I developed a love for music, fantasy books and my very own Star Wars related ritual. I believe that Groundhog's day is silly but every year before school started I would watch all 3 of the original Star Wars movie so I would have a good year. I was proudly sent through the public school system starting at Woodsboro Elementary, moving to Walkersville Middle and finally arriving at Walkersville High school where my teenage spirit was crushed and I learned how to be a terrible self-centered person. Fortunately, puberty passes. My only jobs during these precious childhood years were to avoid as much trouble as possible and be a Docent (fancy English for "tour guide") at the Frederick County Historical Society. And now I know that in a Colonial Home, closets were considered rooms and make-up was made of wax.

My senior year of high school, I was moved to Salem, Alabama. I swear it wasn't to get in state tuition. I ended my high school career at Glenwood School INC and earned money by broadening my theater background and cleaning house. I quickly found out that it's not smart to flirt with boys on stilts and breaking vaccuums is not a good quality in a housekeeper.

I left all of that behind when I attended Auburn University where I learned things I'm not going to share and did things my mother isn't proud of. I enjoyed a varied professional life. First I worked my way up the Housing and Residence Life's career ladder. After I realized that living at your work was a bad idea, I took a job at the Foy Student Union where I found out there are stupid questions and they usually come up around 3 AM. Years of college life taught me tha I am a football fan and got me to, finally, move away from theater in my senior year of college. After obtaining my marketing degree in 2003, I did what every 22 year old college graduate should do. I traveled down the wrong path. I took up a job cocktail waitressing which lead to bartending. Oddly bartending lead to actual waitressing (or serving for those who like a unisex title) and being known in odd circles as that girl who made my martini dirty. After a few too many beer bottle cuts and an unfortunate incident where I accidently drank windex, I realized that I had more to offer than my shot making abilities. Though they are impressive.

In 2005 I joined the Creative Circus where I hope to learn. What I will leave up to the professionals.
