Dancing on My Own

I’m starting back to blogging again. Again. And again. I really want it to eventually stick, so this time I’m not focusing on any one part of my life. I’m going to go old school and pretend like this is my LiveJournal all over again, hence the name. Have you followed me before? Are you new? I would love interaction.

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Lindsy, but my nickname is Tanjalin. This happened a long time ago when I first became obsessed with the color orange. I even had (and still have) the tangerine clamshell iBook. Me being ever so clever, I created a new email address: tangerinelindsy, which was ridiculously long. One of my even cleverer friends (who is still one of my best friends), shortened it to Tanjalin, and it stuck. She even shortens it further to Tanj these days. It’s my blog name. My graphic designer name. My Xbox gamertag. Me on Instagram and Twitter and Goodreads. Chances are, if you see it somewhere, that’s me.


That’s me. I’m a ginger with glasses and a nose ring and gauged ears and freckles. I’m 43, but no one ever believes me on that one. I have four kids, one husband and two guinea pigs. Oh, and a hamster, but he’s a jerk. I love to read and cook and design things. I’ve recently started this journal of self rediscovery, hence the blog, so I’m hoping people will enjoy going on that trip with me. I have an anxiety disorder and a coffee addiction. I love hugs and laughing and watching YouTube videos with my kids. I work at a college in the bookstore, where I’ve been the buyer and operations person for nine years.

That’s me in a nutshell. Thanks for being here.
