Hey y'all! (Yeesssss, I do say "y'all" -- quite frequently, actually. And if you're a country-phobe, don't do something nice to me because I will call you "darlin".)
My name is Amelia and I'm co-blogging here with Gianne! :)
I'm eighteen-years-old (so technically an adult, but don't hold me to that) and I recently graduated high school. I'm taking a year off before heading to college, using this newly granted spare time to work on my book. Yes, I am a writer. Yes, I get distracted easily by shiny objects. Be nice to me or I'll put you in my book, and kill you.
A Bit Longer Bio
I run my own blog, The Authoress: Book Reviews & More, but when Gianne put up a post saying she was looking for a co-blogger, my interest was piqued. I've always thought co-blogging would be a super cool thing to do and, since I already knew Gianne was awesome, I applied. Luckily, she must've thought I was pretty awesome too! :)
In addition to being a huge reader and writer, I also do graphic design. Focusing mostly on bloggers, I offer free graphics at my site The Graphic Files. (That's how I met Gianne!) Besides that, I dabble at playing the piano, reading about psychology, reorganizing my bookshelves, watching Golden Girls, Sherlock, Numb3rs, The Mentalist, NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles, and ultimately trying not to demolish the little shred of a social life I have left.
I'm a bit random -- my mind tends to function like a pachinko machine. Paradoxically, I'm also incredibly organized. I like to always have a task, and when I decide to do something, I do it -- I don't second guess often. I love iCal and lists -- my god, I adore lists. I wouldn't function without my Sharpie pen and butterfly-decorated pad of paper.
What I'll Be Doing Here
Gianne is swamped with AP classes -- all the power in the world to her. I took one AP class my junior year of high school... Never again. My one experience with the world of higher academics has given me a great sympathetic capacity for those still in the trenches. So whatever Gianne wants me to do here, I shall do. :) Sometimes memes, sometimes reviews, sometimes giveaways, maybe a blog tip post here and there. Keep a look out!
