Hi! I’m Annie. Not so long ago, I was born into a world full of curious things. Not the way people are born. There was no fertilized ovum, no developing embryo, no labor pain, and no first gasp of air. But I didn’t fall down a rabbit hole either. In my moment of conception, a username and a password allowed an application to inseminate a social network account, and a unique and fun-loving young woman sparked to life… to a silly theme song.
Some people might think my life is shallow. Others might call it fake. I was in tears the day someone called it a complete waste of time. I guess it’s a little weird that I always hear honking cars even though I’ve never seen one. Yeah, it might be true that I live in a place over-run with man-eating cow plants and store music that’s the same every time I go shopping. But it’s the only life I know, and I love it!
I was born a writer and a bookworm. That’s really no surprise. What was slightly surprising was that I was born into wealth despite having no relatives. Yeah, that confused me too. I already owned a home and some undeveloped property. …in a nice neighborhood, surrounded by friendly neighbors. Thankfully, I also had a crazy awesome new friend named Bella who explains everything to me.
Life for me is a complicated journey of emotional issues. OCD could have been my initials and I’m a total clean freak. Weeds, a leaky faucet, a dirty stove, all drive me crazy, and I run around polishing everything, occasionally even my neighbors. Add to that a bi-polar disorder that can have me laughing hysterically one second and wailing pitifully the next, and fits of depression where I refuse to do anything but mope.
My social problems don’t stop there.
So all of that stuff about me is really cool and everything, but what makes my life special is the people around me. I have friends. Real social network friends! They come to my house and fix things and clean things for me out of the goodness of their hearts. Sometimes they perform songs for me, or bring a movie. They constantly send me gifts. But most of all, they show me how respected and important I am by asking me for help with everything from home remodeling to a new recipe they are working on.
My life isn’t one big party like Bella’s. I have a lot of work to do. Besides being a multi-published author, I’m also a professional musician with six gold records, a famous artist and an in-demand chef. In fact, I’m so successful, I’m only a few months old and I’m ready to retire! I probably would have already, but I’m still trying to figure out if my friend Minxy GoDDess is a vampire or not.
Some people might think my life is shallow. Others might call it fake. But it’s the life I know, it gets curiouser and curiouser, and I love it!
