Bio: Hi! My name is Sara. Welcome to HattieVents! I've been working on this blog since 2014. I haven't written as many posts as I would have liked but, life happens! Dependent upon motivation and inspiration (and whether or not I give into an almost weekly impulse to delete everything because the Internet is so GROSS), I upload once a week. I am still working on what specific day of the week that will be and, also, hope to increase that number in the future. In October 2014, I left my job to focus on home life and although, if I'm honest, I enjoy not having to be around people all day, I have found "unemployment" a bit challenging, hence this blog. I don't expect it to make any earth shattering changes in the world, but it gives my brain a place to go and helps me maintain my communication and computer skills. This blog has no particular niche (gasp), rather, it is a mish-mash of topics ranging from current happenings in the world, mental health issues, Christianity, and random vents about everyday life. I would characterize myself as an awkward, frequ- I mean, sometimes, grumpy, Christian on the verge of becoming a hermit. I am a conservative chick who understands that not everyone is going to think or believe as I do, and that's their prerogative. I don't mind intelligent, respectful disagreements and robust discussions, but I do not have the energy for hate and insults. If you have taken time out of your day to read anything I have posted, or you are even following this blog - thank you, thank you, thank you! I appreciate it very much! Pleasant journey!
