Once upon a time, there were two geek girls:
Give me a:
C! Coffee. Three cups, every morning. Nonnegotiable.
H! Hopeful. I’m generally an optimist, except when I’m not.
A! Army. Six years. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times …
R! Reading. All kinds of books. Except the scary ones. I’ve sworn off the horror genre and serial killers. I like my sleep too much. But I’ll stay up late for young adult fiction.
I! IT. By day, I work for a software company, where we do many geeky things, and where everything I write has XML tags.
T! Tenacious. This word used to show up a lot on my officer evaluation reports. It’s a nice way of saying I’m stubborn.
Y! Yet. As in “Are we there yet?” It’s the journey, not the destination, that’s important.
Give me a:
D!- Dork, nerd or geek? Dork, definitely. Although I have qualities from all three camps it is the off-kilter, socially inept side of me that tends to shine the brightest — like the time in middle school when I thought it would be cool to demonstrate a ballet jump for my friends in the orchestra room … and jete’d into five music stands and a cello.
A!- Artist. I love to draw, although lately I mostly specialize in doodles during boring work meetings. In high school I took every art class that I could fit into my schedule. I missed winning my school’s art award by one point but it was okay anyway — I got to present the award to one of my bffs.
R! – Rad. I love pop punk rock and I married a former skater/surfer dude.
C! – Coffee. Can’t. Exist. Without. It.
Y! – Young adult literature. I don’t just write it, it’s my favorite genre to read too.
