Brag Loud & Often but Graciously
Livejournal seems like more of... well, a journal. With this blog I plan on bragging myself up so the rest of the world knows how truly awesome I really am (uh, maybe the graciously part will go out of the window with this).
So now, a little info for those of you who don't already know me! I'm a 26 year old girl from Utah who fell for a Dutchman, got married, and moved across the sea. Right now I'm trying to learn Dutch and do my integration exams. After being here for 3 years and finishing my integration exams, I will qualify for Dutch citizenship, which I plan on getting so that I can VOTE. Since I'm married to a Dutchie, I won't have to surrender my American passport.
I really like to make stuff. People ask me what I like to make and my answer usually is... well, a little bit of everything. This doesn't mean I'm actually -good- at everything but I certainly would LIKE to be eventually. My mom tells me I'll be as good of a seamstress as her after I've had as much practice. I don't want to wait that long, but I suspect she's right. Because I'm evil, when she complains about not being able to type very fast or do things with the computer I will respond with "When you've been doing it as long as I have..."
Since I'm a stay at home and make messes wife, I've had time to experiment with cooking which I'm actually starting to enjoy a little more. This doesn't mean that I have given up on frozen pizzas though! I participate in a menu planning meme that I plan on posting here too.
I suspect that this is getting a little wordy and about 93% of my readers have fallen asleep by the 2nd paragraph, so I'll wrap it up. I love getting comments and hope to meet some new people in this endeavour. Cheers!
