My name is Stephanie . I am 31 years old & I live in North Carolina with my husband Brian, my cat Picasso, & our 32 chickens. 🙂 I started Campbell Rewritten (this blog) on July 2, 2019. I call it this because I am mostly retelling stories from my life to you. I have been blessed with a sense of humor that gives me the ability to enjoy life, so I hope I can share that with you through writing. I have a always loved to write – I kept 9 diaries growing up & I wrote several fan-fiction stories that I put in large binders. Not saying they were any good (lol) – it was just something I really liked doing.
- My parents call me ‘Gorg’
- My grandma calls me ‘Doodles’
- My Papaw called me ‘Tuffy’
- I have one niece that calls me ‘Nae Nae’
- Church folks call me ‘Steph’
- People might call me other names but I don’t want to know what those are LOL
My husband works at a mill & is a taxidermist. My father is a Pastor & is retired from treating waste water (aka poop lol). My mom is a florist & house cleaner. I graduated with an Associate of Arts degree & to be honest, I never wanted ‘to do’ any specific career – I just wanted to be happy & like what I do. I don’t think rising higher in a career field means everything in life.
I have always sought to be an authentic person. I don’t like fakeness – even in my Christian life, I try to always be authentic. I am a human being. I have made mistakes, & will continue to make them, but I believe there is a certain beauty that goes with those who aren’t trying to be anything else except what they are. I’ve always just tried to be myself – even if people aren’t into me. A lot of people say i’m ‘weird’, but I kinda like me, 🙂 & I’m so glad I don’t have a boring personality. Life is way too short to be as uptight as most people are. I march to the beat of my own drum, because I walk in the truth from God that I am fearfully and wonderfully made. My personality is not a mistake.
My life has taken MANY interesting twists & turns. Throughout my short life journey so far, I have worked in many interesting fields including:
- Managing a Funeral Home office
- Searching mail, running switchboard, & payroll for Dept of Corrections
- Adult Medicaid Caseworker at DSS
- & i’m currently a Data Manager in my local School System.
I am a vertically-challenged & can only wear petite pants. Lol I am potato-shaped because I can’t stop eating carbs. I am a TJ Maxx-obsessed, piano-playing, Chick-fil-a eating, Beatles loving, art-collecting history buff. I also love cats. 🙂 I became a Christian on June 24, 2004.
I battle anxiety-related issues daily: however, in spite of them, 2019 became my year of change, & I have made a lot of progress & have made a lot of positive redirects. 🙂 Maybe you’ll read something here that makes you feel more connected & less alone. Maybe you’ll be encouraged. Maybe my posts will depress you. lol. Maybe you’ll laugh. Maybe you’ll unfollow. Lol. Anything can happen here.
For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
(1 Corinthians 15:21-22)
