Myself


 

Summery: (This may look familiar...please don't judge! ;)
Hi, I'm Rebekah Eddy. Let me tell you a little about myself...
I'm a Christian, homeschooled young lady, and the daughter of the senior pastor of Manchester Community Church. I come from a family of twelve people, yes that means I have nine siblings, and yes I love them all! :)
I am a sinner, saved by grace. My passion is to follow my Savior, Jesus Christ, with all my heart, soul, and mind. All my writing is to His glory.



Random Facts That Will Hopefully Help You Understand Me (I make no promises):
1. I love writing, and I've written several stories one of which is published (I'm an author!! :D) and a second one close on its heals. :)
2. I still harbor the slight (very slight) hope that sometime I will be able to visit the British Isles and see some of my favorite places with my own eyes!
3. I'm probably going to be the shortest person in our family. (My younger brother Max already has me beat by at least a foot)
4. I find driving relaxing. (Except when there's an idiot on the road)
5. Chocolate and Ice-cream are my weaknesses. (Shh, don't tell!)
6. I make friends easily. I hate talking to strangers unless I know I have something in common with them that I can spout on and on about. ;)
7. I'm an ESFP and proud of it. :) Don't you dare judge me by the stereo-type...I'm not even a little bit like the stereo-type.
8. Despite my sparkling personality, I mostly wear black, gray, and jean. Call me weird if you want. I like it.
9. I have a hard time choosing favorites. Seriously, I have several "favorite" EVERYTHING.
10. Music is awesome. I would listen to it 24/7 if I could. From Classical piano, to movie soundtrack, to popular Christian groups...you name it, (within reason), I'd be willing to give it a try. Four out of five I'd probably like it too. :)
11. Horses are my favorite animal on earth. If I could choose anything from the realm of fantasy instead of being limited to earth-creatures I would choose a Unicorn. Also, dragons are awfully cool...depending on the dragon.
12. I often make terrible grammatical errors in my writing.
13. Spell-checker is my bosom friend.
14. I mix metaphors by accident. *hides face in shame* It's a serious problem you guys. Believe me. 
15. Oh, I wear glasses...usually. Currently I'm experimenting with contacts and figuring out whether they are more or less annoying then my glasses. I have a love/hate relationship with them so far...just like my glasses. So we'll see. ;)

List of Favorites: (I say "favorites" because I have several...)

Food: Anything Italian, Mexican or American. I'm not picky. I have a special place in my heart for pizza though. ;)

Color(s): Blue (any shade), green (most shades), purple (most shades), black (yes, I know I'm weird...sorry. Not.), and silver/gray. Also some shades of brown...but those come in as a close second. ;)

Animal(s): Horses. Didn't I mention this already?? Unicorns and dragons are my favorite mythical creatures.

Song(s): It's a good thing I'm not asking myself to find ONE favorite song, because frankly, that would be impossible. And besides, I change my mind frequently. Here's a few current ones:
My Graduation Slideshow Song...
 
The Piano Guys and Scotland?? What could be a better combination? 
 
I will let you guess why this is a favorite song... B-)
 

I could name a LOT more...count yourselves lucky...

Up
Wall-E
National Treasure 1&2

TV Show: I don't really watch TV...since we don't own a TV...so I'll go with the black and white version of Zorro. After all, I'm a HUGE fan of swordfights. B-)

YouTube Channel(s): Studio C, The Piano Guys, Blimey Cow, and Jostie Flicks. Yeah, they're the only ones I watch too...so.

  2. Love your about page!! You and I are very similar---and that's why I like blogs. One finds so many people out there who are a refreshing confirmation of one's normalcy. I love horses! I could live in a world where music was oxygen! We both like blue! And several other things I cannot recall. Great post. ---Libby @ libbyrussellsblog.wordpress.com

    1. Thank you! Wow, you made it all the way through?? That's impressive! ;) When I finished writing it I was like "Oh my goodness, that's really LONG!"
      Yeah...I'm not sure I qualify as "normal". ;) But if somewhat crazy = normal, than I guess we probably both do. :)
      Ah, that would be awesome! Music as oxygen?! Maybe I could write a book about a world where that was the case! I would probably get really jealous of my characters... :P
      Blue is awesome. Which shade (if you can possibly pick any ONE shade) is your favorite?
      Thanks for your comment! I'll definitely have to check your blog out! Sounds like we're kindred spirits!! :D

  3. Hi Rebekah!
    I just finished reading through about you and I loved it! Great quotes! Mind if I "borrow" some. ;)
    I love horses too! My favorite mystical animals are the Unicorn and the Pegasus. :)
    I also like the color blue!
    I agree with Libby, I think I could live in a world where music was air! Nice post!

  7. Came across your blog through getting lost in the depths of the Internet. *waves madly* hey! Nice to meet you. You have a beautiful blog! I love the yellow splashed everywhere. I'm 18 as well and live in New Zealand. I also had nine siblings for a while (although recently got a tenth sibling so we're winning! Lol). :) You sound like such a sweet gal.

    1. Hello there! *waves madly back* Welcome to my crazy corner of the Internet! Glad to have you along for the ride! ;) Thank you for taking the time to drop by and leave a comment, I love comments. :)
      New Zealand, huh? Well, that is really cool! I've heard tell it's a beautiful place to live. I have to ask, have you been in any of the places where the Narnian movies were filmed? (It's a question I promised myself to ask every person I meet who lives/goes to New Zealand. ;)
      Oh, man...you beat us. I've been trying to convince Mom to have triplets, but so far my appeals have fallen on deaf ears. ;P
      Aww, thank you. So do you! I'll definitely be checking out your blog! It's always nice to "meet" other likeminded people on here. :)

    2. Ooooh you replied! :) Yay! I haven't been to all the places Narnia was filmed but Castle Hill (confrontation scene between Aslan and the White Witch) is about an hour drive from where I live. It's real fun exploring round there.
      Your blog is awesome.

    3. I try to reply to every comment on here. But... *laughs sheepishly* that doesn't ALWAYS happen. ;)
      Oh, cool! I'm jealous. :) New Zealand is up there with the British Isles as a place to visit at some point in my life. Such a gorgeous place! And, a lot of sheep I hear. ;)
      Aw, thank you. ^_^
