8. A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF:
Hi! I’m Susan, aka LadyMissSusan on the web. I moved from Kansas to California this past year and am creating a new life for myself. I spend my days working as a Glamour Technician (hairstylist), and my nights fostering my spirituality and recovery. I spend a lot of time watching tv, especially teen drama’s and reality television! I love reading (again with the YA books, especially vampires), coffee, traveling, taking pics with my iPhone, Twitter, crafting (I’m really into collage’s right now) and new adventures.
9. THREE UNKNOWN THINGS ABOUT YOURSELF
~I’m a hair twirler. Almost always with my left hand on the left side. My mom always said I did it when I was tired as a child but I do it all the time now.
~Since I am a hair twirler I’m obsessed with having super soft hair and usually use conditioners made for people with course thick hair.
~I like anything coconut.

12. ONE THING YOU WISH YOU HAD LISTENED TO THAT WOULD HAVE GOTTEN YOU STARTED IN JOURNALING SOONER.
My gut instinct to just to do it. I was afraid to start because I might not do it ‘right’. That makes me laugh now.
HERE’S WHAT SUSAN HAS USED FOR HER JOURNAL:
I’ve heard so much about the illustrious moleskin journal that that is what I decided to use. It’s my first one. I think I’m going to decorate the front/back covers and also attach some ribbon to the front and back so that I can tie it shut.
