I am a book-loving, coffee-drinking, fake-it-till-I-make-it 20-something who is creating my own little niche in the blogosphere. As of 2017, I hold degrees in Marketing and Spanish, and have since started my first full-time marketing job, which I enjoy more days than I don’t. Reading and writing are my favorite pastimes. When it’s warm, you can find me bopping around my Tennessee town with my husband – we both like hiking and eating, and live in the perfect place for both. I also love my two adopted cats more than is probably reasonable and have made them an Instagram, in true millennial fashion (@LilCatFatFat). My non-cat socials are in the menu above if you want a more candid peek into what I’m up to.
About the Blog
This blog began in 2012 as a sewing blog that I rarely updated. I was a freshman in high school, and loved blogging, but didn’t have time to sew. I also realized I had more to say, so a couple years later, I re-titled it Mission:Incomplete (you can read why here) and began blogging more consistently. A few years after that, it became NerdyWordyBirdy, which it hopefully will stay.
Regardless of the title, here you’ll find book reviews, life & goal updates, and discussions on different aspects of our society here in the US. You can expect 1-2 posts per month on average (my life keeps changing, so my posting schedule has to also). While I’m still working on making my blog the best that it can be, it’s a great platform for connecting with others who are passionate about books, self-improvement, sociology/politics, and the myriad of other things that hold my interest.
You can find archived posts of my regular features by exploring the menu at the top of the page. But I’ve been blogging for years, and not all my posts are tagged. (I’m working on this.) For those who need a little push: if you like to read, check out my book reviews. If you’d rather join discussions on society, find out what I have to say about Aziz Ansari and sexual consent, or the NFL’s decision on standing during the national anthem. If you’d rather get to know me, I’ll tell you about my relationship with Christianity, my first full-time job, or how I relate to my much-younger brother. And as of January 2020, here is my most popular post of all time.
