I was born in North Carolina, but my memories begin in Hampton, Virginia. I spent my entire young life in the city. I moved a few times but never left the beautiful city of Hampton…that is until my excellent adventure known as the United States Army! After training in South Carolina, I would spend almost ten years in Texas, where I would be introduced to a new me. It is also in Texas where I meet the man that would introduce me to the “new” new me and later become my beloved husband.
(I know I’m leaving a lot of stuff out, but I’m saving that for the Netflix movie about my life)
So almost ten years and four deployments later, I would set out for the unknown that is called civilian life. It is a scary world going from the routine and camaraderie of military life to civilian life. But with my husband, we somehow found our way…all the way to Lousiana.
Now I know what you’re thinking: “That’s all well and good, but how did you get into writing?” I’m glad you asked! I actually began writing at a young age. In about the fourth or fifth grade, I wrote a poem that was published. Also around that time, I told a scary story I had written in a program for my elementary school. It’s so funny thinking back on that time. All that time, destiny or fate or whatever was whispering in my ear, telling me I should write. But it would take a moment of complete and utter melancholy to bring me back to writing after such a long time.
So right before I started this blog, I was a little down. I thought I did not have a talent for anything, nor did I have a passion for anything. I was about to have my communications degree but I had no idea what to to do with it. It’s an awful feeling not knowing what path you should travel. Almost on a whim, I wrote my first post. The feeling of writing that first article was euphoric. It felt…right. And, I get to write about things I love, video games, anime, sci-fi, podcasts, music….anything. So with the encouragement of my hub, I embark on a journey that (unbeknownst to me) began in the fourth or fifth grade. I hope you stick around for the ride…or should I say cruise.
