My name is Libby.

This is my second attempt at a blog. The first one I tried failed because a) I had a very slow computer, b) no digital camera, and c) I put too much pressure on myself to be incredibly witty and clever (which resulted in only 1 post that I deleted about 2 days later).

Now I have a good computer and a digital camera, but the pressure is still there. Its getting bigger with every sentence. So, I'm going to do what I always do to ease my nerves...make a list. A list of introductions.

1. Me

I'm 27 years old. I have a bachelor's degree in printmaking, but all day I make spreadsheets and update a giant database. This is my cube:

Homey, isn't it?

Just like any person in their 20s, I'm trying to figure things out. Mainly, how to balance my creative side and my organizational/neurotic side. I know everyone struggles with this to an extent, but I truly feel that I'm 50/50...I get the same amount of satisfaction from reorganizing my filing system as I do from making a painting.

I'm politically liberal. I recycle. I stop at McDonald's and get #1 combo when I've had a really bad day. I love color. I'm a dog person, through and through. I listen to mixtapes and I use my VCR almost daily. I used to shave my head. Beverly Hills 90210 was a really good show. I have a bowling party every year for my birthday...its one of my very favorite things to do. Oh, and today is Halloween, which is my favorite holiday.

I was going to make a much longer list (does 1 thing even count as a list?), but I'm ready to eat dinner and I'll just save those for next time. And this time, there will be a next time!

Happy Halloween!!
