  • People scare me, I get anxious and turn into a babbling idiot.
  • Depending on my mood, I’m either mute or talking my head off.
  • I love to sing, I’m an awful singer, but it doesn’t stop me. Ask the kids :)
  • Crocheting, reading, and gaming are hobbies I enjoy.
  • Almost all movies make me cry. No lie.
  • I am a Cervical Cancer survivor.
  • I’m scared it will come back.
  • I once won a bubblegum blowing contest.
  • I always read the instruction manual, but don’t always follow it.
  • Being a good photographer eludes me, I will not give up!

That was hard. And I am very weird & boring.

  1. I find it very hard to write things about myself, too, but you’d never know it by reading my blog. I just don’t want to sound like I’m bragging or anything like that. I crochet too. I am participating in the Harry Potter House Cup for Knitters and Crocheters on this term.

  2. Karen, I don’t think you should worry about sounding arrogant on your blog- after all writing about yourself is exactly the purpose of many blogs. Those reading your blog have a genuine interest in your life and appreciate what you are sharing with them so I would encourage you to continue being open! In the past when I have written blogs, I also worried about bragging but I came to realise that you shouldn’t shy away from the fundamental aim of blog writing; telling others about your personal experiences.
