Hello, world. My name is Dani. I’m currently age 35, at the time of this post, and I’m a serial blogger. I began blogging at age 25, but I didn’t find WordPress until age 28 and I have been blogging on this site ever since. I have many blogs besides this one… many are abandoned, but still here.
I created this particular blog (A Quest For Happiness) in order to cheer myself up, after my diagnosis of Keratoconus in 2014, It’s a rare eye disease that will render me blind someday, unless it’s treated with surgeries that can halt the progression for a while or until a permanent cure is discovered.
However, as of 2015, I am hopeful about a surgery called “Intacts Corneal Implants” that may correct my vision issues and afford me more time to serial blog. I have an appointment to the Mayo Clinic at the end of December 2015! Whoo-hoo! ^O^
Although, my eye troubles aren’t who I am, so I should just get on with it and stop stalling. =p
There is a line in a song, by the band U2, that goes: “I’m more than you know. I’m more than you see here…” (Invisible), which seems to describe me pretty well, so I’ll start there.
I’m a long time fan-girl of U2, since age 15 (autumn of ’96, a few months away from my 16th birthday). I love music of many genres, but I can’t stand country music… The odd thing is, I love country folks and the accent. I don’t know why I cringe and want to escape the room whenever I hear a country song… Excluding Johnny Cash, he’s cool, I don’t mind his songs! However, my mother was a Dolly Parton fan and that was hell for me, whenever she would play Dolly’s music. x_x
I love writing and science! I spend most of my time either writing (blogs, manga, or novels) or learning much science. I’m in LOVE with quantum and particle physics the most! However, I appreciate anything science related.
I love comedy! I love to make others laugh and I love to laugh as well. I love cats, anime, video games, art, photography, autumn, rainstorms, and hiding under warm blankets during cold winter mornings. Coffee is life and chocolate too!
I love using emotes in my emails and blogging, especially the Japanese emoticons, because they’re more expressive. In spite of the fact that I often leave out the brackets, for laziness sake. I have been using emotes in online communication since age 15. I had first learned them on AOL, and I have no real reason to stop using them now. (^o^)/
I enjoy the stories of others who wander across my path in life. To be honest, I have only met one “boring” person in my entire lifespan thus far (a very LONG time ago, he shall not be named!). For the most part, I find that everyone is interesting in their own way.
I’m a nerd, mixed with a pinch of geek, yet I have often fallen in with the “Cool Kids” more than a few times. I have no idea how that happened and it remains a mystery to me. o_O
Anyway, I am socially awkward (a huge understatement!), to a fault. I’m honest and very blunt. I see the world in a very unusual way, my mind is often muddled with many things at once or obsessively focused on one particular subject or person. And that sometimes drives those closest to me nuts. Sorry, guys…
I feel sad sometimes. I feel lonely. I feel lost, angry, and hurt. I struggle like any other person on this planet. I am human. I make mistakes, say or do the wrong things, but then I try my best to learn from it. I fall down, but I get back up again. Sometimes I stand up alone and sometimes I get back up with help.
I love life more times than I curse it. It’s not perfect, but then again, what is? I make the best of what is given to me and I improvise for what is missing. In other words, I use every part of the buffalo, and leave nothing to waste.
Hello, world… I am Dani. It’s very nice to meet you. And thanks for reading my blog. ^_^v
And… I’m going to be a brat and leave this earworm for you: Hello. Click it… I dare you! I triple dare you! Are you scared? Muhahahahahs! ^w^
