Getting to know me :)

Hi everyone, my name is Mandy.   I'm 16 years old and I live on the East Coast of the United States.  I made this blog because I love being able to write and express myself.  I'm not the most average girl you will ever meet, at least where I live.  I have been playing the violin for the past 8 years, and have been in an orchestra for the past 5 years.  I am also very involed in my county's 4-H.  If you don't know what that is, then the easiest way to explain it is to tell you to look it up on the Internet.  If you are in 4-H and know what it is, then you know what I mean.  I also love art.  Painting is my favorite form of art, but I also love to draw.  I cook and am always trying to find new recipies to make.  The most uncommon thing about me is that I hunt.  I go rabbit hunting with my dad, grandfather, and friends of the family.  I wish I could go deer hunting, but that's the busiest season for work.  Going along with the hunting theme, I also carve duck decoys.  My dad, brother, and I learned to carve them from a Master Carver with whom we are very good friends.  He taught us how to carve for the "carving out future carvers" program for the Ward Museum in Salisbury, Maryland.  This is just a very brief summary of who I am and what I do.  Please keep reading and let me know what you think.  Have a wonderful day!

  2. Hi Mandy

    I just read your commentary on Elle and Blairs blog. So I looked up your blog, and I already like it a lot, so I think I'll keep following you. :D You can check out my blog if you want to. I put up a lot of english youtube clips and stuff, but I mainly wright in danish, since I'm from Denmark. the name is: studinerhardetsjovere.tumblr.com

    Oh and I think it is so cool that you play the violin. My mom has been a violin teacher for more than 20 years, and I have played the cello myself for eight years.

    So good luck with your blog, and I wish you all the best.

    Love Johanne, Denmark.
