Hello, blog!

Well!  I decided it was high time I got myself a normal blog.  I have a blog dedicated to my semester in Mexico, but rather that go back to using that one I thought it might be nice to have an everyday blog.  So, here it is!  And just in time, too!

You see, BEDA is coming up soon.  (Blog Every Day in April.  Don't know what I'm talking about?  Check this out.  It's a crazy thing that the awesome author Maureen Johnson came up with last year, and I am very excited for this year!)  And I really want to get into the habit of blogging again.  I did pretty well last year, but I haven't really blogged since then.  And I like to blog.  It's fun.  It's like writing in a journal, except you're displaying that journal to anyone with internet access.

Not that I really expect people to read my blog.  Maybe my friends.  Maybe my mom.  And that's only if they're really bored and have nothing better to do.

HOWEVER.  On the off chance that somebody new really is reading this... well, hello!  Nice to meet you!  Let me introduce myself:

I'm Allison!  I'm a college student in northern Arizona and I love to read and write.  Also, I'm a Nerdfighter.  Don't know what that is?  That's okay!  Check out this INFORMATIONAL VIDEO!  (It's hilarious, and it will help you understand some of the random things I talk about.)

I like to participate in crazy internet things.  Which is why you will hear from me every day in April, and come November I'll probably blog very rarely and only about the novel I'm furiously writing*.  I love Twitter.  I love YouTube (for the community of awesome people, not the illegally uploaded episodes of The Office).  I love Facebook and DailyBooth and Formspring and any other social networking site you can think of.

But there is something I love even more than the internet: BOOKS.  I love to read.  I read often and when I am reading something I am DEDICATED.  I usually finish a book in two or three days, depending on the length of the book and the amount of time I spend doing important things like eating or going to class.

I'm majoring in English Education (because I LOVE English), but if I can make my dreams come true, I'll be a published author.  Of a real-live book.  ASAP.

And that, my friends, is my life in a nutshell.  Hope I'm not too boring!  If you're so inclined, please leave a comment.  Comments are love, and it's always nice to make new friends!

  1. Allison! I... wanted to be blogging too since you are. :)

  2. I still use my old blog...cause I had it before, right, that thing at the end? I do it too, did you get it from hayley?

  3. Maddie: Well, I don't really get it FROM Hayley, because I've seen a lot of bloggers do it and I used to do stuff like that on other blogs/profiles/etc. ... but reading Hayley's blog made me think of it again, yeah :)
