Based on the (grammatically incorrect) list of qualifications above, I actually should have about a thrillion followers… give or take. I’m kind of funny- well, I’ve been known to tell a good story. I’m definitely sassy- that cannot be denied. I’m crafty in that I knit and pin A LOT of crafty things to do from pinterest… and I’ve even attempted one or two, with minimal to great success. I’m spiritual but I don’t flaunt it- it’s not really your business. I have kids, one who is 2 1/2 which automatically makes her hysterical. I cook okay- it’s usually edible and I have a fancy camera that allows me to take pretty good pictures sometimes… though never of the things I cook because: 1. I don’t think you care. 2. I doubt, when I’m 90 and looking back through my life, I’m going to get all sniffly-sentimental over that pot of homemade mac-and-cheese I made that one time in 2013. 3. Food photography is actually kind of hard. Kudos to those who make the stuff they make actually look good.
I do not draw- no way, no how. I have absolutely no talent for the visual arts. I am still traumatized by an experience in middle school art where we had to make a lithograph. The kid next to me who, admittedly, is some sort of artist now (he just did some body paint on this model for a famous rapper-video and it was fantastic), basically carved out his own version of Starry Night or something. I carved something that looked like this… well no, I carved this:
It makes me appreciate the teachers who are still allowed to grade on effort- that literally was the best I could do- rather than talent (why was there grass on the sign- because that’s a guy holding a sign, in case you weren’t sure… but really middle-school Kelli… grass?).
So no drawing. Don’t ask. But I travel. I have lived in some incredible places and traveled to some even more incredible places. I have met an abundance of unbelievable people who all have beautiful and heart-breaking stories to tell. I have worried about friends who have been through political uprisings, tsunamis, hurricanes, earthquakes, more political uprisings, evacuations and the like.
It stands to reason I’d have something to say…
