|Skyrim is my current jam. Insert arrow to the knee jokes here.|
As you can probably tell from my Wizard of Oz allusion I'm a huge reader and an even bigger geek. Dungeons and Dragons, Magic the Gathering, zombies, and cosplay. You name it and I probably do it. Except for LARPing, I haven't done that yet but there's a first for everything. I don't think I've really shown my geeky side on this blog, maybe I should run a series of comic book inspired manicures or makeup looks some time this year.
|The two most important people in my life.|
I work at a Taekwondo school in the evenings, in case I haven't mentioned it recently. I've been teaching for almost 12 years now, which makes me feel pretty old to think about. I'm a 3rd degree Black Belt and one day when I can afford it I will test for my 4th. I help with the Tiny Tigers class, which is the class my son is in, and I teach the green belt through pre-black curriculum classes as well as a weapons class (Bo staff). I've done Taekwondo for almost 17 years and I've never regretted doing it at all. Even when I'm busted up and bruised or hobbling around on crutches for almost a year. I love it and can't see myself doing anything else.
We live in lovely Oregon, which is cold and wet 90% of the time but I love it here and will never move out of state. Unless its to my own private island of course. Where I live means within a few hours drive is the ocean, desert area, mountains, and some of the most amazing hiking in the states. I'm also super lucky in that there's an Ulta literally within walking distance. Great for this blog, not so great for the bank account. I also have a second Ulta and a Sephora within a quick drive which is awesome. And a used book store the size of a city block (several stories tall!). We hope to eventually move to the coast, but that probably won't happen for a while.
I hope you guys enjoyed a little peek into my actual life, sometimes its easy to forget that there is an actual person behind the words. Again, thank you so much for actually reading this blog, I am blown away every time I get on and see the page view counter go up and up and up. I am just blown away by the support I've received from people and fellow beauty bloggers. Thank you.
