That's right folks, it's that time again. Today is April 1st, which means it's time for BEDA (Blog Every Day April)!!

If you already know me, you have heard me mention BEDA and my amazing BEDA buddies (Becky, Christina and Nicola). I don't want to rehash all that, but here are my explanatory posts from the original BEDA and BEDA the 2nd.

We did an introduction questionnaire last year, which I almost did again, but Becky did something really fun on her blog and gave statistical information about herself - by the numbers. I would love to blatantly steal it, but I decided to only sort of steal it and focus mine on the alphabet.

So if I can get through them all, here are 26 things to know about me (We should really adopt a smaller alphabet):
  • Autumn Lee Hill (that's me)
  • Blogging has been hard for me, especially lately, but I want to write all 30 days this year, as during BEDA the 2nd I only posted half the days.
  • Communications is what I got my bachelor's degree in, specifically print journalism, which I loved getting but have never used.
  • Desserts are out of my diet for all of 2011. Why? Because I am crazy. Three months down, nine to go.
  • Editing is my favorite part about journalism, I have always preferred fixing other people's writing to doing my own.
  • Freaking awesome (as described by my coworker Trevor, though he suggested a different 'F' word)
  • Graduate school is what i am focusing on right now. I am only in my second semester, so two more years to go!
  • Homework is very easily avoided while writing a blog instead, as this proves.
  • Ingrid Michaelson is one of my favorite music artists, introduced to me by one of my best friends, SEJL, who is participating in BEDA for the first time this year! I have seen her live three times (Ingrid that is, I've seen SEJL live more than I can count).
  • Jobs: I have two part-time jobs (sort of three) that keep me busy about 50 hours a week.
  • Knowledgable (as described by my boss Jennifer, which is good to know. She said the only thing I didn't know was what Juneteenth was, but now I know that too.)
  • Librarian will someday be my job title. That is what I am going to school for and where I have found a home.
  • Musicals are my passion/obsession. I am a huge Broadway geek, going to shows every chance I get. I own just over 130 cast albums, which I happily share with friends.
  • Nincompoop: the one word guaranteed to make me giggle each and every time I hear/say it.
  • Omaha, Nebraska = home for the moment. But only until I finish school, then who knows!
  • Procrastination = my specialty/curse. I am so deadline-oriented that I often can't accomplish anything without a deadline looming over me.
  • Quirky (as described by my coworker Ashley, but I think it fits).
  • Reading takes up a great deal of my spare time, and like many people my age and nearly all of my friends, about 75% of what I read is young adult literature.
  • Soliciting words from other people was the only way I was going to get through 26 letters today; I am not sorry.
  • Twitter handle: autumnLEEves. Somedays I tweet too much and others not at all, but it's my favorite way to keep track of my BEDA buddies.
  • Unshelved = a great and funny library-centered comic that you should take a look at.
  • Very very tired after working 11 hours today, which is why I am about to cheat on the next one.
  • Wicked eXtraordinaire (as described by my sister Lindy) She is thinking of the musical, which I have seen four times in three cities in two countries.
  • Years old: 26
  • Zootool replaced Delicious as my online bookmarking tool recently. I am still adjusting, but so far I love it.
OK, that was actually fun and not as hard as I thought it would be -- until tomorrow universe.

Despite living in 2 states that officially celebrate Juneteenth (according to wikipedia) I too had no idea what it was, but do now! :)

And you can blatantly rip off my blogs anytime!

What a fun get to know you. I love it. Good luck this month. I should join, but I know that I'll never actually make it. Hahaha. I'm way too lazy lately.

Good job! You're so cool! I'm lucky to have you as an EEB! I'll have to check out Zootool, sounds yummy.

I've just discovered Ingrid Michaelson and I LOVE her!!
Just thought I would share that ;D
Nice way of introducing yourself! Very creative.

Nice! Good work on this, I doubt I could fill the alphabet. Still think you're crazy on the dessert front, updates on the task so far please! X

I find it sad that you are giving up desserts rather than indulging in the euphoria that is ice cream, brownies and sprinkles...

This was a really cute idea. :) I had the same feeling when I got done with my introduction.."this is easier than I thought" :)

Nincompoop gets me every time too. I'm glad we've connected on this.
