I guess I should introduce myself.
My name is Mariah. I’m 30-something years old and live in Nashville, Tennessee. I enjoy traveling, concerts, reading, crafting, boybands, sleeping, more concerts, more traveling, and more boybands.
This site came about mainly because I need an outlet to have a little fun and talk about the things I listed above. The title…well, the title right now is a work in progress. I chose it mainly because I LOVE music and going to concerts, but I have a wide range of what I consider to be my favorite music. Boybands (and I’m not talking about this One Direction nonsense of the last few years, we’re talking NKOTB, *N SYNC, Backstreet Boys, O-Town, 98 Degrees, etc.) are what shaped my teenage years and are STILL shaping all these years when I’ve attempted this thing called adulthood (and failed quite a few times), so I knew I had to include them in this somehow. The “and things” part would encompass everything else.
Some of the things I plan to write about besides that…well, I enjoy pop culture. I have a degree in communications (and a masters in public relations), so I guess television, radio, music, etc. have always interested me in some way. And social media (even though I’m the first to admit that the majority of us spend WAY too much time with our heads in a phone) offers a whole new spin on those things, so there’s always a lot to talk about. I watch TV all the time and enjoy some reality TV shows (Bachelor, Bachelorette, Big Brother, etc.), and even though I don’t see a lot of movies, I like to throw in some things about those too. I’m also a self-proclaimed Disney fanatic (former Cast Member and all!), and just got back from a trip down there a couple of months ago that I STILL haven’t moved all the pictures off of my phone from, so there’s PLENTY to talk about there (can we talk about how I need to go to Town Center at Disney Springs like, yesterday?). I’ve also recently gotten into crafting (the Cricut machines are fantastic and I must have all the vinyl in the world now) and plan on documenting those projects, and judging by the many times I’ve hot glued my fingers together, I’ll have plenty of stories about that. Finally, I plan on talking about the things I do here in Nashville some as well as some real-life stuff. I’ve wanted to do this for awhile just to have a hobby (for lack of a better word), and to have a little fun. Life is too short not to enjoy yourself, so let’s see where this takes me.
So to sum all of that up, I’m just a really big dork, and I’m hoping that my dorky adventures and thoughts will be at least somewhat entertaining.
I’m not sure that I’ll ever link my personal social media accounts here. Maybe once things get going I’ll get some new specifically for the blog. But for now, let’s see where this thing takes us. I’m going to start by reading up on how to make WordPress easier to use…I like this layout, but it needs to be more…me. 🙂 Until next time!
