about little ole me.

Once upon a time there lived a little evelyn who left her little hobbit hole to stake a small corner of the internet and devote it to her wanderings and ramblings.

For a few years she dwelled within a cozy home built by her thirteen-year-old self, until she woke up to find her foot sticking out the door, her head out the roof, and her books tumbling out the windows and knocking over her mugs. With such a discovery and the following conclusion that it was time to move on, she packed her bags and shipped herself to a whole new world…

Welcome to my current blog! Or at least the page where I give an idea of who I am and explain what this virtual corner is in as little amount of words possible.

To get introduced, hi there! My name is Evelyn. It’s a pretty cool name if I say so myself. It’s a combination of “eve” and “lynn” which mean life and light respectively. Next thing you might want to know about me is that I’m a Christian. I’m also a homeschooled high schooler from a big family.

^ me being “home schooled” at a local café ^

I am also (not not limited to) a bookworm (atrocious reader), a hot-tea drinker (snob), rain-lover (pluviophile), world-weaver (writer), paint-spiller (this title is actually pretty fitting), clock-collector (I currently have three antique clocks), and I flatter myself with the title of ‘poet.’

Three more random things about me:

  1. I’d pick a bagel over a donut any day
  2. I have a huge canvas painting of Queen Elizabeth hanging in my closet (how many other people can say that?)
  3. I own lots of plants (the number is always changing with adopting new ones, plant sitting for family and friends, and giving some away).

My cacti are named Augustine (the First), Priscilla (the Prickly), Ferdinand (the widower), and Archibald (the mentally disturbed). But then I also have Pineapple (a succulent) and Ferndale (an aloe plant). And on any give day Ferndale has about a ten baby sprouts.

Sometimes I’m sarcastic and all the time I’m short, and I am slightly obsessed with using bullet points (aren’t they just so useful and pretty?) and everything elephant-related (e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. the dear darlings ❤ )

I love people, I love listening to their stories, I love inspiring people and getting them excited about things.

So that’s some things about me.

Oh and hey I’m a blogger (tadaaaa)

So about this blog: This blog is where I pour out thoughts and share ideas. Sometimes its small, while sometimes it’s drenching. I post something roughly every Friday depending on that little thing called “l i f e.” I talk about the novels I’m writing, about books I’ve read, or about interesting poetry exercises, or I talk about places I’ve been and people I’ve met.

Well there you go! If you want to know more, I would suggest looking around the blog. Cheers!

(though I also answer to Hotdog, Hamburger, Waspsbane, Evvie, and Lovelyn. Hey I even answer to “evil-lyn” but the response is usually an unamused slight raise of the eyebrow and a entirely sarcastic “you think you’re very clever do you. it’s not like every single middle school guy flirting with me or completing in a battle of wits resorts to that immediately and thinks that it’s the best thing since sliced bread.” So choose your weapon carefully.)

P.S. My dear writing assistant from the A.A.A: Rufus. He helps a lot around here. If you have any spare pickles or chocolate bars to donate to his cause, let me know.
