The Bucket List Ninja is a writer, amateur web designer, constant reader, lifelong gamer and diehard Cardinals fan. The Bucket List Ninja loves figure skating, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, tv, movies and music and even plays a few instruments and sings a bit. The name came from a site I created many years ago that hosted video game reviews and news aimed at the "girl gamer." It is of course a video game play on the Freudian concept. The logo is based on the eternal fanboy war of console vs PC. Console games are obviously superior, so it is my belief that PC gamers have "joystick envy" ;) I discovered Squidoo when looking for new ways to promote my Zazzle store and instantly fell in love with it. I have always loved writing and over the years have written for a number of websites, blogs and review sites. I am currently trying to make a career out of writing/blogging and Zazzling. In the past I have worked in the insurance industry as an underwriter and a claims adjuster, though my college degree is in computer science. I was born and raised in the Mid-West, but spent about ten years living in the Southeast. My hobbies include softball, tennis, figure skating, playing music, computer programming, web site design, reading, reality tv, and video games. I am a lifelong St. Louis Cardinals fan. I'm also a hobbyist musician and play the guitar, mandolin and banjo with varying degrees of skill.
