This is me. In all my glory, which to say the least, really hasn’t been anything other than extraordinary. Obviously. As an official first post of word press, I’ll start off by telling you a little bit about myself. I’m Brigit, I’m a twenty-something student, and I’m trying my hand at being a lifestyle blogger, living in Missouri.
For as long as I can remember, I have been in love with words. Writing, drawing, reading, the love of vocabulary and literature has been with me for years. Growing up, I devoured books, and I still do. I haven’t been led to pursue a creative writing degree, and I don’t have a job in journalism, but I have started this blog to remind myself of how much I love the written word, and the love I have being able to connect with others; making them feel that they are never alone.
So, again, as this introductory post, I decided to answer the Proust Questionnaire to let you know a little more about me.

What is it that you most dislike? That clearly bikini bottom is a westernized civilization as far as terms of its customs and general rules, so I want to know who the other fry cook is on Spongebob. Do they not have labor laws? I dislike that no one can explain how Spongebob Squarepants seemed to be the only fry cook at the Krusty Krab. Spongebob should only be working 40 hours a week because we all know that Mr. Krabs would never give Spongebob any overtime, so we can only assume that he has 2 days off. Being the only restaurant in Bikini Bottom would warrant it being open at least 6 days a week and that is far too many hours for Spongebob to be constantly working there SO I HAVE TO KNOW WHO THE OTHER FRY COOK IS.
