About Ori? I don’t know. I’d like to think I’m interesting but I’m probably kind of plain. I’m a wannabe extrovert. I observe more than I talk unless I’m completely comfortable with you; than you usually can’t get me to shut up. My co-workers say I’m incredibly patient but my family would disagree. Oh, and I’m hilarious.
I’m a left handed redhead. I’m more of a dreamer than a doer and that’s primarily due to the fact that I’m an obsessive compulsive planner but procrastinator. I really really enjoy anything visual whether it be researching the latest advertising trends and thinking outside of the box or taking photographs all day long. I would literally live in an art gallery if it were allowed.
I often blabber about going back to school because I only attended a 2 year tech college with no idea what I wanted to do with my life. Fast-forward 6 years, I’ve finally figured out what my career aspirations are. But out of financial fear and the ever possibility of failure, I’ve never pursed going back to school any more than requesting information and never opening it. Why can’t we just learn on the job anymore? Hello apprenticeship!
My dream job? I’d be an Artistic Junkie. Think photography, gallery showings, freelance graphic design work, blogging, social media marketing guru. You name it, I’ll do it. And I want to travel the world. It’s the one thing on my bucket list of life that I’m absolutely determined to do.
I’d like to think that I’ve grown both as a writer and as a person in the last year. I started this blog at the beginning of 2012 and my writing style has definitely evolved for the better. I’ve made a few risky moves in the last year or so and even though I’m never really sure if the right decisions were made, I’m happy with where I’m at.
My family, Channing, and kitten, Frankie are the most important people (and furr person) in my life. I’m one of those weirdos who doesn’t have many friends. I think it’s because I’m socially awkward and don’t know how to function with small talk. Instead of filling awkward silence with even more awkward laughing, I fill it with dumb questions I likely already know the answer to. It’s like an intentional “blonde moment.” Who does that? Also, you’ll probably make my best friend list if you think #talkinginhashtags is cool.
I guess that about sums it up. Thanks for reading #AboutOri
