An Introduction

As stated plainly by the above title, this post is an introduction.  That being the case, I suppose it would be customary for me to introduce myself.   I am not going to give you my real name because I wish to increase my mysteriousness...haha! Not really.  "But then, of course, there is the issue of privacy," as Emma Woodhouse would say; and with that I wholeheartedly concur.   Privacy is indeed precious. 
For the time being then, in regards to this blog, you may know me by the penname, Miss March. I chose that name because Little Women is one of my all time favorite books.  Also, I grew up playing the characters of the March girls with my three older sisters, so I  feel quite comfortable impersonating them.  I did not choose one particular March girl to represent on this blog, because I could not decide which one I was most like.

I relate to all of them in different ways.  I am domestic, like Meg; a scribbler, like Jo; play the piano every day, like Beth; and...well, I am not artistic like Amy, but I think I could match her in the lecturing department if I had the proper subject.  I would so enjoy giving someone a "rouser."  Strike that.  I actually have a very hard time speaking hard, honest truth to people's faces for fear of offending them, so perhaps I lecture best only in my imagination.  (Oh, but it's nice to have an imagination, isn't it?)
As stated in my profile, I am twenty-three years old.  I have never had my own blog before--nor even commented on anyone else's blog--so I guess you could say I'm a bit of  a novice.  This blog is called Sunshiny Corner because that is the title to which my perfectionist nature finally gave its approval.  I had quite a few other ideas  before that one, but they all persisted in sounding bad just about the time I thought I was settled on them.  (Which was quite provoking of them, to be sure.) 
My hope for this blog is that it will be a sunshiny place, for myself as well as others.  This past year has been a hard one for me and my family, and there have been many times when I've gone searching through blogs just longing for something pleasant to read.  I do hope Sunshiny Corner will prove to be a cheerful, amusing, and encouraging place for anyone who happens to stop by. 
Oh and please pardon my improper grammar as I'm sure there will be plenty of it.  I threw the text books out long ago and I've never had the heart to pick them up since.  (Why should I?  I'm done with school!  "Oh joy!  Oh ecstasy!" as my brother would say.)
Alright, here we go.  I'm publishing my first post. (Yikes!)
