• About Me

    I'm Amanda, a 21 year old Florida girl. I'm a student at the University of North Florida, where I'm majoring in Journalism. I love music, the beach and driving. My friends are my family, and I love hanging out at the movies, the hookah bar or a rock show. I want to pick up as many useless talents as possible and to travel the world taking pictures and having good times with my best friends. For more information about me, view my About page.

About

I think facts say a lot more about a person than a simple explanation, so here are 10 facts about me.

  1. I have never moved in my life. I have lived in the same house since the day I was born. Additionally, I live next door to my father’s parents.
  2. I have an immune deficiency found in only 2% of all people who have immune deficiencies. Doctors peek into my room “by mistake” to ask if I’m that case they heard about.
  3. I wrote a book on Latin, for which I won an award at the state Latin Forum. In fact, I have won nine awards, total, for my Latin proficiency.
  4. I majored in Creative Writing in high school. Yes, I went to a high school with majors. It is an arts school you must audition to be accepted into, and I studied writing there for four years. I earned an arts seal on my diploma for completing the school’s major requirements.
  5. I am one of the few born and raised Southern girls you will ever meet who does not like sweet tea. Don’t ask me to explain how it happened; somehow, I just never developed a taste for it. I am also one of very few writers who does not much care for coffee.
  6. In a game of Truth or Dare, I always pick Truth. Ask me anything you want, but God help me if I am going to do something outrageously stupid just to prove myself in a silly game.
  7. One of my goals this year is to swim a mile in less than 50 minutes again. It’s been a long time, and I miss it.
  8. I name my cars. My first car was a 1994 Pontiac Sunbird called Natalie. She was a bit of a lemon, and I got rid of her a year later in favor of a car that actually ran, a 2000 Hyundai Sonata I named Meg. She’s sassy, and her sound system makes me happy.
  9. My grampa–not the one I live next to, but my mother’s father–was a rocket scientist. No, really. An honest-to-God, literal rocket scientist.
  10. When I was little, I wanted to become a marine biologist. My dream was to train marine mammals at Sea World. I still feel that way every time I see a dolphin show or the like.
