I’m Cricket, a twenty-nine year old Montrealer with a lot to say. As an aspiring writer, I thought the best way to get all my thoughts off my chest, and out of my cluttered mind, would be to start a blog.
I have always been called a chatterbox with a big mouth, and while I'm sure some would take offense, I consider it quite the compliment. After all, where would we be today if no one ever took a stand and spoke their minds? I don’t shy away from controversial topics, and I tell it like it is.
By now, you're probably wondering if this blog is for you. Well, this paragraph should help you decide that. I am outspoken on my opinions (and I have a lot!). I believe in freedom of speech, in equality for all, regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation. I have been known to start arguments with anyone who makes any sort of racist, sexist, or homophobic remark. I am a strong advocate for animal rights, and have two rescue kitties, myself. I am an obsessive recycler, and try to do my part to save our planet in any way I can...(I am the girl who honks at you on the highway when you throw your Tim Horton's cup out the window.) I believe that there is power in numbers and that every little step we take matters, every person who stands up for their rights counts. I plan on posting about topics like these, as well as the odd mix and match of home renovations (bought my first house one year ago, and lots to do!) I'm quite-the handy-woman, and recipes (I'm a tad obsessed with cooking everything form scratch).
So, to those of you still interested in what I have to say; here's a little about me; I hail from a little city called Saint-Constant, on the South Shore of Montreal. I have a slight obsession with coffee and David's Tea. I prefer biking to almost anything and prefer animals to most people. I have wanted to be a writer literally my entire life and have written a few books, but never got around to publishing them.
So, pull up a chair, pour yourself a glass of Merlot, and bust out the Fun Dip...wait, do they still make Fun Dip?!
