But really, it’s nice to meet you.

28 Sep

Let’s get one thing straight, okay? I’m not going to censor things here. And you shouldn’t either. I don’t mean you should be an asshole just because you can. But if you’ve got an opinion that differs with mine or someone else, go ahead and speak up. Let’s be honest, we all think things that we would be terrified to say in front of our grandparents. That’s the beauty of the internet, though. You don’t have to reveal your real identity. We can all be superheroes online. Whatever.

I’m Eryn (real name), 20 years old (real age). I live in Texas with my boyfriend, Trevor, our cat, Samson, and a dear friend of ours, Victor. We’re all in college, working, and just trying to make our way in this crazy world. Well, not Samson. He mostly just sleeps and poops and attacks legs if they come within… 5 yards of him. Trevor and Victor are in a band together, they’re really pretty good, let me know if you’d like to know about them. Or if you want to hire them. That would be cool, too. I crochet. A lot. Hence the “hooker” part of this blog. If you were expecting a woman that sells her body, feel free to leave and sorry for the confusion, keep it safe.

Anyway, crochet. I love working on new projects, or reworking old ones. I’m always looking for something interesting or useful to make. And I don’t only crochet! I can sew some. Knit very little. (I actually can’t knit at all. I can Knook, though. Knitting with a crochet hook. Same effect.) My drawing abilities stop at stick figures, and I can’t paint a picture to save my life. I can cook, but I don’t like to that much. Baking is fun. Pinterest is a weakness, of course. Ravelry is also a fun pastime. I love to read, but I don’t have time to do it much anymore. Too busy crocheting and whatnot. And working. I work at a craft store, which should be fabulous, but really isn’t because I work for a bunch of blow hards that only care about money and sales. You’ll see more on that later, I’m sure.

Today was pretty productive. I talked to a lady about a focus group, which would be really neat considering I’m in need of some extra cash. I made some coffee I saw on Pinterest. It’s supposed to taste like the bottles of Frappucino you can buy at WalMart, but mine is hazelnut flavored. Pretty tasty. 5 cups coffee, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup white sugar, however much creamer you want. I put some ice in it. I also started working on some baby cowboy boots. They’re really cute. I’ll post a picture later, though. Along with a link the pattern I’m using. For now though, I’m going to watch Glee because I somehow managed to score a Thursday off.


Welcome to my blog! Hope you stay for a while 🙂
