Open Diary Entries

(This was the entry page with info about me, the way it was when this journal was set up from 2002 to 2004. Please note that a lot of the info no longer applies because it was preserved this way from that time period.)

Hi. I'm SwankiVY. Nice to meet you.

You can contact me at , or IM me on my AOL screenname SwankiVY2. I have a Web page if you feel like obsessing over me for several hours.

For those who don't choose to make the above trip, here is the standard description of me.

I am a mid-twenties girl who works in a bookstore and hopes to become a professional editor and maybe one day a published writer.

I have a degree in elementary education that I never plan to use. I decided I had to choose between being a writer and being a teacher, since both are something you have to BE full-time, and both would suffer if I didn't choose one. Since I suck at teaching and I don't suck at writing, I picked the selfish way to go. The children of America are now breathing a sigh of relief.

I am a writer, not just a person who writes. There is a difference. A big one.

I enjoy the following hobbies:

I am talented in the following:

I am interested in the following:

Random facts about me:

"When things go out of date, or out of mind, they're thrown by the wayside. You'll be surprised what treasures you'll find there if you just wander for a while."
