If you read my blog regularly, thank you. Honestly, I try to be myself here, and it means a lot to me that people keep coming back. On multiple occasions, people have said how much they enjoy reading what I write. This gives me a sense of accomplishment because a) I don't really consider myself the best writer, and b) I really try to filter what I put here. I don't want to overwhelm my readers with too many personal posts. HOWEVER, don't you love your favorite blogger because of the interesting facts about their life? Here's mine :) I read Kate's blog because of the posts about her family.
Now for some Sterling trivia!
- Puzzles. I. Love. Doing. Puzzles. I am currently working on a 1000 piece Harry Potter puzzle that I got for SEVEN DOLLARS in an after Christmas sale. SCORE! I have a few 2000 piece puzzles that I cannot find space to work on. Cal bought me a puzzle roll up mat for Christmas. That thing makes it easier to stop and clean up. The alternative is having a ugly card table in front of my tv for however long it takes to complete the puzzle.
- I don't have any pets, but my parents have a dog. He's a mix of Italian Mastiff and cuddling teddy bear. His name is Sochi (after the Olympic city) and we get along swimmingly.
- My favorite Ice Cream in the ENTIRE WORLD is Blue Bell. Specifically Moo-llennium Crunch. When Cal was commuting to seminary in Raleigh, we couldn't buy Blue Bell here in VA. He would take a few coolers, packed with ice, and carry the dreamy goodness across the border. When we finally got it here in VA, I probably spent about $60 in ice cream during the first month. To prevent waistline expansion, I don't keep it in the house anymore. Special occasions only.
- I grew up dancing. From the time I was 3 to 17, I danced with a studio. Then I went on to dance all through college. I wouldn't call myself the most talented ballerina of all time, but I sure did have fun doing it.
- I used to live in New York City! After college, my friend Mike and I found a great apartment in Brooklyn. I moved up there to pursue acting. It was just something you were expected to do after getting a degree in performance. I worked for a temp agency and had jobs for Ralph Lauren, Dolce & Gabbana, tourism companies, Sirius Satellite Radio, and many more. Basically, I went somewhere different every day or every couple of days. I got to serve dinner to Martha Stewart, work a designer sample sale, and, but working for Ralph Lauren was the most profitable - they gave me a TON of fancy clothes. I loved being in the city, there was so much to do. My high school best friend moved up there right before I did, a bunch of people came to visit me, and I was constantly busy, but it never felt like a permanent place for me. I moved home 6 months later.
