Hi! First off, thank you for visiting my blog and an extra thanks if you’re taking the time to read thisĀ  “about” page.

My name is Doni, I’m 22, and I like to believe that I have a healthy attachment to coffee and film. I’ve grown up in a small town in the outbacks of Illinois and I graduated from college in May with a B.A. in English. What I’m working on now is applying to graduate school partly because I love school and if I could be a full-time student and get paid for it, I would and more so because I want to be a professor. I can’t think of a better job than being able to talk about fictional characters all day and dive into the history of novels and authors. I hope that I’ll reach that point sooner than later, but in the meantime I’m learning to enjoy life and not to worry so much.

I still have a dream where I become a travel writer/photographer and make a comfortable living with it, but I’ll gladly accept that path as a hobby. I write because I love it and it’s something I’ve been doing since I was a kid. I always had a notebook under my arm where I’d scribble in ridiculous stories when I got bored. Now I have Word to hold all my fiction and maybe one day they’ll be read by people other than myself. Maybe.

I’ve written two paragraphs and I’ve already run out of things to say about myself. I hope my posts do most the talking in regards to who I am. I’m still not sure what direction I want this blog to have, but I tend to write about films and life. Although more and more I’d rather gravitate towards movies than drawn out metaphors of my dumb adventures, but who knows what might be in store? It’s clearly a work in progress, but I’m enjoying every minute of it!

P.S. All new followers will receive a free cup of coffee and a lifetime membership to the Jelly of the Month club.

  1. I’ve also just nominated you for a Liebster Award lol. Hadn’t seen you had already been nominated and there is no pressure, but thought I’d let you know :)
