some things about Merritt

blogs intrigue me. I work as a legal researcher and I have read many blogs for cases and I cannot for the life of me figure out why people would ever put such personal information up on the Internet for all to see. I will not be putting information such as that up on the Internet, I value my privacy far too much. However, I am going to keep this blog thing for a while to see how it goes. It will be nice to type some of my interests up and post them on the Internet. P.S. i do see and realize the irony of me having a blog.

for this first blog I thought I would post some things about myself and my likes and dislikes. I often wonder why I like the things I do and dislike other things. I guess it is just what appeals to us based on visual or past experiences. who knows.

1. I'm into dresses. i like to wear and shop for them, however, i have some dresses i will never have an event or occasion for which i can wear the certain dresses. i need to sell those on eBay.
2. i love to read and will spend abnormal amounts of money on books.
3. Marc Jacobs is my favorite designer
