Guess and Check.

While I was sitting in my 10th grade study class a girlfriend and I decided to write one of the notorious "Things to do before I Die" list. Slowly but surly over the years I have begun to cross things off that said list. One thing that I have repeatedly skipped over on this list was to start writing. It started with to write a read worthy blog, and continues on to publish a novel.  Whether I can ever achieve either of those is beyond me, but here is my attempt at trying. I came to the realization that I can't write a blog that people enjoy if I don't have a blog. So here I am, sitting on my couch with my cat (whom you'll no doubtingly hear a lot about) trying to figure out how one actually starts a blog. It isn't as easy as I thought it would be to set up. You have to pick colors, fonts, backgrounds, layout, and a number of other things that I am not entirely sure as to what they pertain to. So this is my first night of the guess and check system. It might take me a while to get things set up the way I want, but here is my attempt to try.

 I recently crossed of another large goal on my list which was to read over 100 books in one year. When I wrote this down in high school I never thought I would actually complete this task because I hated to read. It wasn't until I was in college and started to read books of my own choosing that I realized how much I LOVE to read. I admit it I am 100% addicted to my kindle and the story that I am reading at the time. So I think I'm going to do my blog about my fascination with the books I read. You'll also most likely hear about my cat, and quotes or lyrics I come across that I love, and food might be thrown in there as well. But primarily this blog will most likely take the  path of being about books that I've read, or books that I want to read. It may also be about stories that I am trying to write. Like I said this is my guess and check, I am not entirely sure how this endeavor is going to pan out for me but we shall see where this road takes me.

So maybe I should start with a background about who I am. Well  my name is Brittany, original I know, but most people call me Britt, BDev, or B.-ritt. I am a twenty three year old, broke college student who works at a sports bar to pay the bills. I live paycheck to paycheck with the majority of Americans and pay for all my own expenses. I go to college for business management with a concentration in marketing and a minor in psychology. I don't really know why, other than the fact that its a very versatile degree, and people tend to make good money.  I am not exactly sure what I want to do career wise. I enjoy traveling, writing, cooking, and reading. If I had my choice I think I would like to work in the travel industry, or event planning, maybe a casino/ hotel. I live in Massachusetts and I bleed boston sports. I am the only girl I know that plays fantasy football and wins. My favorite sports teams are the Boston Bruins and the New England Patriots. I drive a crappy car, I loved Dunkins iced coffee (even in the winter), and I am obsessed with reality tv shows like Big Brother, Amazing Race, and Survivor. I've been watching them since they were created and I just can't seem to shake them. Being on one of those show is also on my list of things to do before I die, but one task at a time. I have a boyfriend named Adam whom I love, we've been together for over two years. I also have a cat named Dunkin who I love to spoil. My life is never, ever, easy and things do not usually go according to how I have planned. I am a Pisces, so I am a dreamer by nature. I think that contributes to way I dive into a book to escape reality, and to why I write things down to express how I feel. I am a firm believe that I sound much better on paper than I do when I speak out loud.

So here is my first post. My guess and check number one. Please bear with me the next few weeks while I try to figure this whole thing out. If any one has any helpful tips or suggestions, please feel free to let me know. Thanks.
