I'm a little late for #marchmeetthemaker but thought I'd do it anyway because there are now 40k of you following my humble little account (also inspired by @volaralparaiso)! And I've been called "Ronny" too many times even in real life, and people asking me if I bake. So here’s a few random things about me.
My name is actually Sharon, I’m from Malaysia and no, I don't bake 😂 Ronnycakes was a blog name my best friend Jon gave me. I do love stuffing myself with cake! I'm a self taught calligrapher and painter. Many people think I did something arts related in school but I didn't study art or design although I’ve always loved it. I graduated in accounting, and took a tedious admin desk job which saps my energy. I’m still at the job if you’re wondering. Taking up calligraphy and journaling two years ago saved me from a period of depression, when it felt like there was nothing keeping me going. Now I feel fulfilled when I write or paint and it blocks out everything else in my head 😌
I'm an introvert and awkwardly shy so it takes a lot for me to stand up in front of a group of people twice a month, talking about calligraphy. But once you get to know me better, I never shut up and am sarcastic with a dark sense of humour. I’m a total bookworm – I love reading and have more than 350 books which I read over and over. I don't drive, and I'm a very picky eater. I also like reading about serial killers on Wikipedia. 👀
I'm terribly klutzy and have tripped over my own feet countless times. I have the memory of a goldfish and forget things in 5 minutes. I'm OCD and can't stand any mess, except for gorgeous journal messes. I used to hate my dimples. I struggle with insecurity and self-confidence. But I’m lucky because I have fantastic friends who are always there with unconditional support and encouragement. I don’t have many friends, but I treasure the ones I have very much ❤
Wow I’m long-winded. If you got to the end, here’s a virtual cookie for you and THANK YOU for reading! 🍪
What else do you want to know? Also - I’d love to get to know you guys better, so do share a random quirk about yourself with me! 😁
