Miss February 2012 – Gina Knuppenburg

Do you ever find that your kitchen, bathroom, or junk drawers are the cleanest when you’re under a deadline? Me, too.  In fact, I just cleaned off my desk and filed a bunch of receipts in the short time between creating this page and crafting that first line.  Deadlines are even harder to make when one has to write about one’s self. This particular deadline-a post about myself-is so difficult I’m contemplating cleaning out the refrigerator or alphabetizing soup cans in the pantry.

One would think that having blogged for six years that I’d have plenty to say about me.

I suppose I should start by introducing myself.  Hi! I’m Gina, of Desperately Seeking {gina}. I’m a lover of books, pretty photos, owls, really-really good food, and a boy named Thom. By day I crunch numbers {I very much dislike the number five} and by night I stalk the cat and write home about what I had for dinner.

My little space on the web, Desperately Seeking {gina} was originally titled Desperately Seeking Thom. I was looking for someone from my past-someone I desperately wanted one last conversation with. I was seeking…closure. After six months of silence I came to realize that what I was searching for was completely wrong and I started seeking myself instead.  And, I’ve been looking ever since.  Funny how what “they” say is true:  the moment you stop searching for whatever it is you’re longing for, is the moment it will find you.  It turns out that Thom  was searching for me as well and found me through my blog.  It didn’t provide the closure I wanted. Instead,  it was just the beginning of a love story that brought me to Arkansas.  Weird, huh?

And so, my story continues.  Every day a new page is written.  Themes are planned out. Characters explored. Plots discovered, uncovered, rewritten, and sometimes wadded up and thrown away.  As I discover who I am, who I want to be, and what I want to become, I document it for the world to read.  I hope you’ll stop by.

    As a former BFF of Gina I must say she is even better in person. This girl and her family took me to my first ever trip to Cedar Point, and Hockey Game. She pretty much rocks!!
