About Me

Hi everyone, I'm Colleen.

I'm in my mid 20s, a wife, a step-mom, and an aunt from central Arkansas. I enjoy swimming, and used to swim about a mile every day. Now Iโ€™ve โ€œjoined the circusโ€.... not really but I am on a journey to become an aerialist! My apparatus of choice is the aerial sling, but Iโ€™ve been experimenting with Lyra as well.

I am now a dispatcher and part time student. Sort of...I'm not rushing myself on school at the moment. I donโ€™t have much of an idea as far as my long term career goes. I thought I wanted to teach, so I started subbing...thank goodness I learned I didnโ€™t like it before I got a whole degree!

I really enjoy being outdoors and in the sun. Summer is my favorite season. The sun on my skin and the occasional summer thunderstorm is lovely and great way for me to relax and feel completely in the moment. I'd be a beach bum if I could!

I love houseplants!

I have type one diabetes and am on an insulin pump, so some days are harder than others. But so far my diabetes journey has been pretty smooth.

I'm an avid reader and am always looking for book recommendations.

Iโ€™m dying to travel the world, Japan, Jeju island, yunnan province, Dublin, Greece, Israel. You name it, I wanna visit it!

Collections

I'm somewhat of a collector..and by collector, I mean getting a little of everything post-related and stacking them in disorganized piles. Those piles include - foreign currency - postage stamps (new or used) - sea shells - postcards - matryoshka - bookmarks - washi - Japanese themed items - Chinese themed items - anything about Haenyeo

Favorite Books

Harry Potter- JK Rowling Winter Garden- Kristen Hannah Shanghai Girls- Lisa See China Doll- Lisa See Snowflower and the Secret Fan- Lisa See The Tea Girl on Hummingbird Lane- Lisa See Peony in Love- Lisa See Pachinko- Min Jin Lee Memoirs of a Geisha- Arthur Golden Valley of Amazement- Amy Tan Island of Sea Women- Lisa See The Kitchen God's Wife- Amy Tan Inspector Gamache series- Louise Penny

I will read just about anything but those are my favorites.

Wishlist

I love to receive photos that you yourself have taken, or have around the house from various times. Something about them makes me feel connected to the time and the place where they were captured. I just find them to be very personal.
