this blog has come a long fucking way. started almost 3 years ago as a coupon blog and a ploy to get myself to save money and get out of debt so i could go to medical school… it’s basically none of those things anymore. it’s more about me- still youngish and definitely still brokeish, but pulling my focus off coupons and putting it on things like ham handed attempts at self improvement, starting over, taking people to ikea, and making bad decisions. also, fuck med school. i’m gonna be a writer instead. and if i can get away with it, they’ll pay me to go there. but seriously, i still need to get my shit out of debt (although i am closer than i used to be for sure).
i guess that’s mostly about my blog. a few things about me: my real name is allie munier (not bess marvin – i’m just a rabid nancy drew fan). i’m originally from our stunning state capitol of augusta, but i’ve been in the portland area since 1997. i’m a usm graduate (go huskies!). i’m 34 years old. oh, and i’ve finally lost most of the weight i put on when i got divorced 4 years ago. i should find a decent picture that’s more up to date.
