Hello and welcome to my very first hubpage, but my first writing publicly in general. I've been writing creatively sense the age of 14, and not to mark my age, but that was about 16 years ago. I just never thought to share my fragile intimate notebooks to others, until it was brought to my attention that any thought is a fantastic one, and that every idea is worth mentioning to others. Because it helps the world grow in understanding that someone else out there, just may have thought it too, and didn't know how to go about it or know what to do with it until reading the ways in which I carefully will word articles.

Anyways, as it says above, my real is Bridget. My favorite nickname, however, would be Bridie. An old Irish nickname for Bridget many many years ago. As I am Irish (also Bohemian) the name was perfectly fitting and I adore it.

I am originally from the northwest suburbs of Chicago. Born and raised. I now have a little over a year under my belt residing in this wonderful state of California, where I had always dreamed of living sense the age I started writing artistically. I have also lived in a very small town of Tennessee for about a year. Have visited many states in the US, on vacations, but mostly just drove through them. I do not wish to stop seeking out the world for all of its beauty. For there is culture within every state, every region, every land and I dream to see it all.

I am a creative writer in ways of wording what I view through my eyes onto paper. However, I know and understand that a private or personal journal is not part of the Hubpage themes or ideas, I find it important to the readers of my articles to know and understand that about me because it may come across in the ways I may word things.

Either way, I am always open for constructive criticism and feedback about the subjects that I will be discussing.
