About Amelia

I was born in Detroit on 12/15/88 (nearly one year to the day before Taylor Swift, FYI, whose birthday is 12/13/89).

I’m really good at memorizing numbers: dates, freeway exits, etc.  I don’t know why this is or how it happened, which is how I feel about a lot of things in life.

Grew up in the suburbs and am still here.  Or, more accurately, keep coming back.  [Insert eloquent ode to Linda’s Diner and Balduck Hill here.]

I’m getting pretty good at dodging run-ins with people from high school, but that’s probably because I graduated in 2007 and 2007 was kind of a long time ago now.  Most people from that part of my life have moved on.

I did my fair share of moving on, too.  I’ve attended both Saginaw Valley and Wayne State Universities, majoring in English and Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies.  I edited the school lit mag in college; my final editor’s note referenced Lady Gaga at least 10 times (Cardinal Sins, winter 2010, look it up).

I lived in Traverse City for a while too, where I got roped into working 3rd shift at a gas station.  I’m a non-smoker who knows entirely too much about various cigarette brands.

I first started this blog in 2012, when I was still in school and thought I had my shit together.  I don’t pretend to know what I’m doing anymore.  But I do know this much: I love deeply if at all.  Writing fuels me in ways that nothing else ever has.  Karaoke is fun.  And introversion aside, I find people to be endlessly interesting and endearing and weird.
