New Year's Eve... Let's Ring It in

Yesterday I said that I was going to share twenty facts about myself, we will get to that. First, I thought I should share my New Year's resolution. It is not anything really cliché like losing weight, even though I should. My resolution is to craft more and actually finish projects that I start. Since my Grandma passed on December 20, 2013 and she is the one who taught me everything I know, I thought I should put more of an effort into it. I am also going to attempt to quit smoking. I was going to start the day after my Grandmother died, but you know how that goes...

Now for the facts:

 1. I am dyslexic, but I make it my goal to hide it the best I can. Thanks spellcheck and autocorrect.

 2. I have an obsession with grammar and punctuation. I love the semi-colon.

 3. I was born and raised in Northern-Lower Michigan.

 4. I went to university for one year for Early Childhood Education.

 5. I moved to Indianapolis when I was nineteen.

 6. I started drawing houses when I was young, and my grandfather got me my first CAD program.

 7. I do not know if I will ever get married. Love is love without a piece of paper.

 8. I do not like contractions, ex. don't, won't, etc.

 9. Many people do not know that I am actively trying to conceive a child.

10. I usually treat my pets better than I do people.

11. I am buying a house through a rent to buy program with my best friend.

12. My living arrangements are different. There is my best friend, her son, her boyfriend, my fiancé, and myself.

13. I love my job. Eight days will be my one year anniversary.

14. I wish I lived closer to family.

15. My favorite animal is the cat. Meow!

16. My favorite colors and pink, purple, and red.

17. I love to listen to audio books, new and old.

18. I have been diagnosed with depression, but I choose to naturally deal with it.

19. I love to crochet. Knitting is not bad either.

20. I hate making lists, especially about myself.

Tomorrow's topic will be "Do you work well under pressure?" and I will also be talking more about the New Year.

New to Blogging

Here goes nothing...

The way I figure things is like this; I have a lot of thoughts and emotions that I need to express, but if I'm not careful it come out like random nonsense. So... the way I've decided to start this blog is by looking at different "30 Day Blogging Challenges" to get some ideas until I get more control of my thoughts. These topics may be random, but I will keep them as relevant as possible, which shouldn't be too hard. ;)

I want to discuss the name of my blog, though it seems pretty self explanatory. I have a crazy messed up life. There may be a few things I would change, but the majority I would keep just the way they are. When I was younger I used to journal about my feelings to keep myself sane, so I figured, "Why not start a blog and share the craziness!" Some days the posts may veer towards the depressing side, other days they may be so optimistically happy you vomit. If you decide to keep reading, welcome to the crazy rollercoaster of my life!

Tomorrow, everyone will learn twenty different facts about me!

Welcome to my crazy life. I hope you enjoy your stay!
