About Me

Hello world, it’s nice to meet you. My name is Whitney Hoyt. Welcome to my blog.

I grew up in the heart of America’s Midwest. More specifically, I lived 17 years in a suburb north of Chicago, where I spent most of my childhood reading books like, “The Shape of Me and Other Stuff” and dreaming of becoming an astronaut. When I was diagnosed with astigmatism, I gave up on my dreams and blamed my mother for the insignificance of my existence. I blamed her even more for having to uproot my life and move out of state midway through high school. I spent a couple of years in Michigan (resenting my mother) before attending college in Indiana and ultimately becoming best friends with my mother.

I graduated from Ball State University in 2007 with a double major in advertising and magazine journalism with a minor in sociology. All of my hard work has (?) paid off as I have earned an entry-level position working as a marketing copywriter for a magazine publishing company in Orlando, Florida. More than anything, I’ve learned that college has 1) gotten me into debt, 2) allowed me to enter the workforce four years after my peers and 3) landed me at the (very) bottom rung of the ladder in my career, so thanks, college, for doing all of those things.

I live in Orlando, Florida (aka Paradise, America) with my dreamy golfer fiancé, Patrick, and our panda/dog, Kya. You’ll probably see Patrick on television one day. Kya too.

    Mom, I’m embarrassed for both of us. Let’s never speak of this conversation again.

    So is it an acronym for something? I did not see it in websters.

    All that resentment is enough to give any person anxiety.

    Blog is: Short for “Web log,” a specialized site that allows an individual or group of individuals to share a running log of events and personal insights with online audiences.

    Hope this helps :)

    Whitney – Your mother is an awesome person. It is refreshing to see that you have resolved prior issues with her and become a best friend.

    As a co-worker and supporter of your mother Terry for the last 5 years, I offer this: treasure her and every moment you have with her. Write them all down and photograph until your “trigger finger” hurts.

    Terry is a very special person on this planet and I value her thoughts and opinions highly. She is wise to the world (okay…maybe not the word “blog” but everything else ;-) and loves you and your sisters unconditionally. A seemingly rare person these days….an honest person and in nearly every way I can think of, a great mother.

    You are blessed. Take care. -Sloppy
