Welcome to my Cottage

Via }


Here in the blog-world, you can call me the Dandy Lioness.  In reality, I'm known as Sofia.

There are lots of things I love-- writing, books, Harry Potter, flowers, photography (but I don't really take any pictures myself), quotes, Pinterest (but I don't have an account), talking to blog-friends, reading...  The list goes on and on.  I'm thirteen years old, and have been lurking around the blog-world for almost two years now-- I decided to (finally) take a shot at the actual blog-writing aspect of it.  I go to a public school in the USA that I don't really like.  I take French, but I'm not very good at it.  I read obsessively, and write just as much.  I did NaNoWriMo last year, and won.  I hope to try it again this year.  I've written one novel, one novella, and am about 19,000 words into a new project.  I'm a travel-addict, especially foreign countries.  I have one sister, and she is currently in college.

I probably watch way too much TV, and have WAY too many favorite shows.  Law and Order (and spin-offs), Doctor Who, House, Survivor, The Amazing Race, Community, The Office, The Closer, Gilmore Girls, Veronica Mars, and Rizzoli and Isles.  (And do note that I don't watch Law and Order weekly, and these shows aren't all on in the same season.  So it's not like I watch a zillion shows in a week.)  Oh!  And Robin Hood BBC.  I'm watching that at the moment.

This summer I went to France with my sister, and we stayed with some of our dear friends who live there.  My family (on my mother's side) is mostly Irish, so I'd love to visit Ireland one day.  I would love to re-visit Paris (I went there a few years ago-- sadly, no visits this summer), the Cinque Terre and London.

My favorite color is purple, but I also love silver, and anything elegant.  My room had goose wallpaper, that my sister picked out when she was six.  It is currently covered in maps, mostly of Europe.  I love pictures of colors-- colored pencils, colored zippers, colored trees. I love elephants too-- and I will often say at the randomest times, "Anything unrelated to elephants is irrelephant."  My friends think I'm crazy, but I'm not so much a loud, jumping around crazy as a quiet crazy that only they ever seem to encounter.

Also, I love floors.  Lying on the floor can just be so wonderful.  Don't look at me like I'm crazy, my other friends do this too.  I also love dancing around our kitchen.

I do gymnastics and take Irish dance.  For dance, I just started hard shoes.  For gymnastics, I've been doing it since I was about six, and still aren't terribly advanced.  I'm blessed to not have any allergies, and I love all kinds of food.  Thai, French, Italian, Mexican, I'll eat it all. Thai especially.

Now, this has gotten long, and rambles quite a bit, so I'm going to end it here.  Hat's off to you, if you read it all.  And in the beginning, I apologize for the fact that the whole URL is there.  I'm not quite sure how to add a  hyperlink, so you get the whole URL.  Please leave a comment (and if you know how to add a hyperlink, please tell me how!)    Thanks for helping, Eagle!

  1. I did NaNoWriMo last year as well; that was the first time I tried it. I'm planning to do it against this year. :)

    And to add a hyperlink: just select the text you want and click the "Link" button (blue text, underlined) that should be at the top of your Post Editor/Creator thing, in the line along with Font and text size.

    Thank you for coming by my blog!

  2. Thanks for coming by and following! I love your blog, it's one of the five or so that I check daily. I'm recreating my NaNo account this year, by the way. I haven't yet, but I will soon-- probably in the next few days. And thanks for the hyperlink advice, I probably would have been wandering around blogger trying to figure it out and messing stuff up.

  3. I love your blog! Keep posting!
