About Belle

about me 1

I started this blog on September 9, 2012, my 25th birthday.

I turn 30 this year.

I’m a librarian with my Master’s in Library and Information Studies.

My best friend and I have been joined at the hip for 15 years.

I am my Gramma’s best girl.

All of the names on this blog are pseudonyms.

I’m obsessive and single-minded to a fault. In interviews, I call it driven.

I am perpetually awaiting the day I finally feel like a grown-up.

I sometimes reach a point where I figure I may as well make everything worse, because it’s funnier that way.

I married at 19 and divorced at 23.

I met the love of my life in 2015, on a free online dating site. He’s infuriating and stubborn and good. He’ll be mine forever on 05-06-17.

I want kids… in theory, at the moment.

I say the wrong thing… a lot.

I mix traditional swear words with Disney vulgarity, like “zetus lapetus.”

My photo is intentionally anonymous.

I read, shoot, craft and BLOG.

    • Hey. So the follow-up question is I’m wondering where you are from. You obviously didn’t post it, so I’m assuming you don’t want to publicly announce it here. I have spent time in Nebraska & IA and have sentimental interests those states even though I live hundreds of miles away…You can email me at smoothreentry at gmail if you want to answer discretely. And you don’t have to be specific, it is just there is a big difference between Midwestern cities: eg, Chicago and Lincoln, so that is why I ask…

      Obviously you don’t have to answer at all as it is rude for me to even ask…but I was too curious not to.

      Also, if you know any Nebraska blogs that are good reads I’d like to follow them.

  1. Great blog! Love your way with words 🙂
    Likewise, I also studied library sciences. Worked in one for about 7 years before moving to Ireland. Not working in a library but very much a bibliophile!

  2. I am not waiting for the day I feel like a grownup. That will be a sad day when all the fun and magic are gone from my life–at least that is what I melodramatically tell myself every time my back, knees and joints hurt.

  3. Hi belle! I would love to chat with you about a post you made that caught my attention (nuvaring and uti). I have been searching endlessly to find the correlation and have never seen anything quite like your post that describes my symptoms exactly. Is there a way to reach you privately?
