The first thing that catches my eye when I stumble upon a new blogger is their About page. They fascinate me somehow. They’re kind of like that segment in Jeopardy where Alex Trebek points to a contestant and they’ve got one minute to tell their whole life story. I guess it’s my turn.
Hi. My name’s Abby.
I’m a 15-year-old human being (presumably) with an intense love for stories. I reside in Georgia, but my heart lives in Orlando, Florida. In a lot of ways, I’m just like you — I have an eternally messy room, spend my free time texting random GIFs to my friends, and wear out my Spotify account from sunrise to sunset.
I’ve been writing for two years and blogging for almost all that time, but books have always been the love of my life. There’s nothing that catches my attention more than a good book. I’m a sucker for slice-of-life stories and seeing the magic in an ordinary world (because, spoiler alert!! it IS magical!!)
Along with reading and writing, art, music, and theatre are my favorite hobbies. I live and breathe creativity. The thought of experiencing just a sliver of what God felt when He created us? It’s mind-blowing! When I grow up, I’d love to be an animation voiceover actress. but let’s face it, am i ever going to grow up? no. i am not.
My reputation precedes me for being the blogosphere’s biggest Ninjago nut — a title I wear with pride! Ask me about any of those fruit-colored idiots and I’ll fangirl for hours. You can almost always find me squealing about Jay Walker and sobbing over nine seasons of angst and cuteness.
Here’s the tea: I’m not extraordinary. But I want to be. And I want you to be, too. You can chase your dreams and do it well.
No matter your age.
No matter your profession.
No matter what anyone says.
