I thought I would take the time to tell you a little bit about me.
First off my real name is Lacie Jay I just dropped the last name for writing purposes.
I am 28 and live in Florida.
I am originally a New Yorker, still am at heart but life brought me to the sunshine state, so here I am. I hate it here, it is too warm for my blood, I like the colder weather, I love the feel when a sharp chill sweeps through my bones. Autumn was always my favorite season and we don’t really get one here, which makes me sad.
I am a single mother of 3, I started early and my oldest turned 10 this year. They are monsters but I love them. 🙂 They unlike me, love Florida. Go figure.
I like colorful things, if it has bright colors on it I will stare in amazement. I can stare at the sky for hours looking at all the gorgeous clouds 🙂
I love knee high socks, another thing that saddens me about Florida, where as NY I could wear them year round, but here I can only wear them in the winter due to the heat and humidity. I have been forced to buy normal socks since moving here.
The optimist sees the rose and not its thorns; the pessimist stares at the thorns, oblivious of the rose – Kahlil Gibran I am most definitely a pessimist. Although I usually see my glass as empty.
I love nature. I love hiking, and boating, and camping. I like being outdoors, I love animals.
The darkness I have in me is where I usually get my words from. I’ve had one too many bad relationships and heart aches, I’ve lost one too many people I’ve cared about. I have been through some tough times and have gotten close to checking out early. But I’ve withstood everything, and writing is my way to do that. I am extremely shy, but on here I can say how I feel and not worry about being judged. Very few times will you come across a poem that I have written that isn’t some sort of experience that I have dealt with. My words may be exaggerated or over compensating but there is usually a story behind everything you read on here.
If there is anything you want to know about me feel free to ask, I am like an open book. I see no point in staying hidden my entire life. 🙂
I hope even though this was kinda short, that you enjoyed reading a bit about me, and maybe you feel like you understand a bit more about me and my writing. Because that’s I want, is to be understood, I am not looking for acceptance, just a simple understanding would be great. 🙂
