Girl with the 2 Minute Tattoo | Who is Shimmy?

who is shimmy sistah.JPG

The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost happens to be my favorite poem, but did you know that I order pinto beans -n- cheese with xtra cheese from Taco Bell even though I have my own Publix sharp cheddar at home? Grapefruit is my ultimate midnight snack, I considered quitting my doctoral program because calculus was too darn hard, and ASMR videos are my guiltiest pleasure. Did you know those things about me as well? Oh yeah, and the fact that I've seen Home Alone 2 over 413 times...bet you didn't know that either, huh? 

Well, for all those curious with the most inquisitive of minds, I must say that you're truly blessed. Our all mighty Man Upstairs has instructed me to grace you with a few facts about little ole me in hopes that you do just that...find out a little bit more about me and my journey so we can basically be Shimmy Sistahs for life! So if you're ready to make friendship bracelets and shimmy til our hips fall off, then keep reading!
