Isn’t this just the coolest thing ever! Never would I have imagined to get a brave enough heart to go ahead and start up a little blog. Anyways, let’s cut to the chase.
My name is Erica Manzella and I’m a half Sicilian girl from the south, Alabama to be exact (Roll tide!) I’m 20 years young and as July rolls around, I’ll become “legal” as I turn 21 on July 10th. I haven’t exactly decided what I’d like to do for my birthday yet, but whatever I decide to do, I’m sure it’ll be so much fun. I have 2 dogs, one is a German Shepherd and the other is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. I’m sure everyone will see those two crazy pups of mine a LOT on this blog because they are the funniest little creatures. I also have a few cats who I love with all my heart. You could just assume that I’m an animal lover!
I work at a law firm in downtown Birmingham and I love it. All of my attorneys are the sweetest people you could possibly meet. They treat me with the utmost respect and I give them the same respect that they give me.
I never went to college. I did attend a Dental Assisting program at Jefferson State Community College but that’s about how far I went with my education after high school. After I got my Dental Assisting certificate, I lost all interest in the dental field. It just wasn’t for me! You might be asking why I never went to college to get some kind of degree, the answer is simple to me….. I’m simply not a school person. I’ve never been the type that likes to sit down in a classroom for a while and hear someone talk about one topic the whole hour and a half. I’m not ashamed of myself for not going to college because this is what I wanted. I’m very proud of myself and all the accomplishments I’ve made throughout my life. If you’re anything like me, trust me when I say this, you’ll find your way through life. I’ve got a job that you probably need an associates degree or a higher degree. I’m learning legal stuff on the job, which is how I like to learn. I’m planning on working my way up in the firm I work in. If not, I could go to another office and do the same thing. I’ll never give up on making my future bright.
Well, I’ll confess, I don’t have a boyfriend! I’m proud of it too! I’m just not ready to deal with all of that just yet. I’m not the type of person that must have a guy to lean on all the time. I’m not one who must have a guy because my friends might have one. I just don’t want to have a boyfriend.
I love photography! I like to take pictures of flowers, my animals, and just the scenery around me. I could tell my life story through the pictures I take.
That’s about as much as I can think of right now for my first blog post. I’m going to post some pictures of my dogs, my family, and myself below. I hope everybody enjoys my posts and I’ll see you guys soon!
