Introducing (drum roll please)... Erika!
So, no big whoop for this blog post, but I decided that I might as well (re) introduce myself to all of you! As of two posts ago, I'm officially half way to 100, and I figured I may as well use that time to get acquainted.
My name is Erika. My full name is Erika Vallillee (my grandma's maiden name) Loggin. I'm kind of trusting you not to be total creepy stalkers at this point--not that all of this info couldn' t be easily obtained on my profile. W/e.
My favorite color is yellow, with red coming in at a close second. I love the idea of the Mediterranean--places like Morocco, Turkey, Egypt--but for now I'd rather travel to/visit slightly cooler (if only in temperature) destinations such as France, England, Scotland, Russia, etc.
I love food. I went through a crazy period last year of avid cookery during which I wasn't really determined to be a chef, but made $20 a week cooking for a family in my neighborhood, anyways. I have a deep love of cats, camels, and indie music.
My fish, Cedric, may not have been the focus of many of my recent posts (I was at my dad's house this past week), but he shall soon be popping up. He's orange, white and black and lives in a stuffy tank on my desk that's in need of cleaning. But he has a castle!
Last, but certainly not least, I am an artist. I am a writer. I've wanted to be a writer my entire life, literally since before I knew what the word author meant--and long before I could spell it. I've tried unsuccessfully to complete a novel multiple times, and I'm at it yet again. Two of my friends and I have an arts magazine in our small town, of which I am the editor.
I have one mom, one dad, one brother, three cats (divided by two, so... 1.5 cats per house?), one dog, and a truly spectacular fishy friend.
That's me! Honestly, you could crack this blog post up to being way too tired, bored, and unmotivated for my self-centered mind to think of any other topic. I just thought I'd get some of this out of the way, though, so that the next 47 posts (and beyond!) can focus on more universal subjects.
Why not try introducing yourself to the blogosphere? It feels good to pretend to be known ;)
