Short mission statement

So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

About Me

Hello! I’m Niner (nee-ner),

OK, so I’ve tried this blogging thing before a time or two. The first time, I don’t even remember (it was for school), and the second time I tried a photo blog. (Nice photos, but still too much work somehow.) So this time, I went with a casual, anything that happens to be on my mind blog, and sense I started it when I was 19 I guess that it went alright this time. I probably will have no more than one or two posts per month.

I was born and raised in central Illinois, among corn and beans… and corn… and beans. PLEASE note that central Illinois is NOT on the Wisconsin border!!! And that there IS more to Illinois than Chicago!! I’m NOT joking. People have been confused about said location. LOOK at a map, people!! Where was I? Oh yeah, corn and beans. In a lot of ways, I am a very country girl. (Don’t know that I would want to live in a city for very long.)


I was home schooled till the last year of highschool, and then I went to a community college. I was there for three years and went through about as many majors while there. I graduated with an Associates in science, with the focus in chemistry. Right now, I am attending the University of Illinois, working on a Bachelors in chemistry with a minor in teaching English as a second language (TESL).

I’m the type of person who can’t sit at a desk all day. I am just one of those people that must move now and then. (No, it is not attention deficit disorder; I just like to be active.) In the summer, when I don’t get up early for classes, I run (last summer I made it to 11 miles). I have a black belt in karate, and when I get really bored, I’ll decorate a room or redo the flower bed. I do art (see my art category on the sidebar) and like home decorating and landscaping.

Thanks so much for reading <3
