So I guess this is where I get to summarize myself in a paragraph. While I am “just a girl”, I like to think who I am can not be restricted to words on a screen. It will be hard to convey my personality, sense of humor, experiences, and flaws (that could take a whole blog or two in itself) in one section but I will do my best.
I will start with a name. Alli. Like I said, I’m “just a girl”. Alli is so common…but it suites me and has stuck for the past 20 odd years so I guess that will not be changing any time soon.
Horses are some how involved in my life on a daily basis. I am independent. I like school (a good attribute to have for a graduate student) I am extremely observant. If people watching was a sport, call me Michael Jordan. I tend to put too much on my plate, figuratively and literally speaking. I like to picture how things will play out before they happen. It never ends up how I picture. I often say the wrong things at the wrong time. I listen to music the opposite of what mood I am in. I love to cook. I text in complete sentences. I do care what other people think of me. I feel how I am perceived by others reflects who I really am. No, I will not change who I am or how I act, but if your perception is the same as mine then I figure I am on the right track. I love sports. There isn’t enough time in the day. I change my mind all the time. Some of my opinions will never change, ever. I can be sarcastic. And I’m most certainly not perfect.
Boring facts would be I recently graduated from North Carolina State University with a B.S. in Biological Sciences. I will be attending Purdue University in 2014 for a Master’s in Entomology. I am just a young adult learning to balance work, school, horses, and the financial burden that goes along with it.
