So, this super cool girl I know named Kolleen posted a 31 day blog challenge on social media and called me (among others) out. I figured it couldn’t hurt to try and maybe it will help me to keep my creativity flowing and also, I haven’t exactly kept up on this blog. Oops.
So, day 1 is an introduction…. You ready. Okay.
My name is Colleen Rae, it’s pronounced with a long O because my mother did not understand rules about double consonants when I was born… to be honest I love my name more because it’s unique, even though people have a hard time pronouncing it correctly. I was born on November 23, 1986 which means I am getting dangerously close to 30. I have a huge fear of growing older. It’s ridiculous, but whatever.
More about me, I am obsessed with dachshunds. When I say obsessed you probably think yeah, okay. But guys, no… legitimately obsessed. I have three, plus a cat who believes she is a dachshund. I have a dachshund tattoo, images of dachshunds around my house and am currently staring at a dachshund pen that sits on my desk (I have one on my home desk and work desk). I even have a dachshund hotdog cutter… because I’m just cool like that. I’ve been obsessed since I was five years old, ask my mom.
I am an artist, writer and arts professional. The reason I don’t generally keep up on this blog is because I spend most of my time writing for Obvi We’re the Ladies, a kick ass blog started in Chicago that ‘builds sisterhood by sharing personal experiences’. If you haven’t checked them out, you need to. I also read a ton and if you look back on this blog I try to keep you updated on what books I am reading. Currently: The 5th Wave by, Rick Yancey. (BTW I’m barely into it and in love already).
So, that’s a ton about me… I need to save some more for tomorrow… I need a donut.
