Things About Me

Journal Entry: Thu Mar 6, 2014, 5:03 AM



Hi there all. I'm ok - working on a dodgy PC (still) but I have my tea so all is fine.

Was tagged by OHiNeedTea and while I don't usually play tag I decided that since I needed to update my journal I might as well.

1.) My name is Joanne, but I prefer being called Jo. (without the 'e'! with the 'e' is the guy's spelling)

2.) I live in South Africa in my mud-hut with my tinfoil wi-fii...jokes, but I do live in South Africa.

3.) I give blood once a month because I give platelets and plasma so the red blood gets pumped back into me so I don't lose as much as with normal donation.

4.) My mother used to work at Blood Transfusion, as well as give blood, and my sister also gives blood, but the normal blood. Both my sister and I are O-neg whilst my parents are O-pos. (my mom says she doesn't know where my sister and I came from)

5.) I teach English to foreign language students via the internet. It's an awesome job.

6.) I suffer from Depression, Anxiety and Bi-polar mood disorder.

7.) When it is not 30 degrees (like it has been) I drink a lot of tea. I have three varieties in my cupboard for when the mood for flavours strikes me.

8.) I just realised that I am not that interesting.

9.) I am trying to start my own business [ www.haystaxx.co.za ]

10.) I go to a craft market (like a craft fair) once a month with my mom and we try sell some beaded and knitted goods. My mom knits nicely - I have a pair of gloves and a beanie she knitted that I stole absorbed into my ownership.

And I am only doing half a tag because, as I said, I am really not that interesting.





Front-2-Back is live and member join requests have been opened. (Forgot to do that... duh) There are currently two works in the gallery, so if you want to submit a work please link thay you have commented on them somewhere in your comments.




I am currently looking for more mentors for Adopt-A-Writer as there are many mentees waiting for their new owner guide. If you have the time to help a newer writer consider giving this a try.




The PC has its good days and then its bad weeks. We still can't afford one, though I came close to being able to without paying any bills last month. (I didn't - bills come first). So yeah, it's an important thing for work as well as for writing.




Speaking of writing, my book has been edited by my amazing friend KieWakakie and I need to format etc and then it is going to be published. Still have to do the cover design, which is kind of a confusing process as laid out by the publishers, but I am sure I can get it to work. So yay for that!




:star::bulletred::bulletred::star:CONTAINS SOME FOUL LANGUAGE:star::bulletred::bulletred::star:

I love this so so much. This is for all us creative types.






Anything else, just ask.

Lovies,
J

I'm a relatively simple person who likes to write. I value honesty, especially in comments and critiques, and loyalty.

If you are going to fave something of mine it would be nice if you could leave a comment as well. It is not required, but feedback is always welcome.

If you need to talk about anything feel free to note me.
