If you don't already know, that's basically how I start every single authors note, post, etc even though I'm not actually a native Southerner. Y'all has been assimilated into my daily vocabulary, and I love it.
ANYWAY, this is going to be my 'bullshit book.' It will contain posts that are not related to anything I'm currently writing, which includes but is not limited to:
-things I'm annoyed at (wattpad related and beyond)
-Q&As because I love answering questions about myself obviously *hair flip*
-reviews of things I've read or seen and enjoyed (also wattpad and beyond)
-sneak peaks of maybe things I'll work on in the future
-other random nonsense that y'all want to see
I wouldn't call myself obnoxiously opinionated, but I do pride myself on being absolutely hysterical, and if you push the right buttons on me I'll probably self destruct.
PS; Because I feel the need to say it - I am big on dry, sarcastic humor. I'm nowhere near as arrogant as I come off, and most of what I say is just for laughs. Please don't take anything I say too much to heart, I'm not actually a bitch (usually). I cry myself to sleep when people leave me mean comments.
basic info for basic bitches
Anyway, this is me, hi hello I'm Taylor, Tay for short. Taylor is my real first name, but the added Rae is actually just made up. I like to think it's a super short version of my very obnoxiously long and hard to pronounce future last name, so it just makes things easier, and if I ever get published I'll definitely use Rae. Now y'all now, my Wattpad existence is half a lie.
I'm 27, but I'm consistently mistaken for a high school student, and I'm usually double-carded at the bar, mostly because I look nothing like my license photo so they think I'm using someone else's. I've accepted the fact that I should just probably carry around my passport in my purse.
I currently live in South Carolina, but I was born and raised in northern New Jersey and lived there for the first 25 years of my life. I hated being in the Northeast, everyone's rude af and moves too fast. If I never see snow or New York City again I'll be perfectly fine.
YOU HAVE A LIFE OUTSIDE OF WATTPAD??
Surprisingly enough I do.
This is my fiancé, and for those of you who have finished Crash Into Me, you know a large part of the story was inspired by our relationship and his own personal struggles with addiction. Crash Into Me literally wouldn't exist if it wasn't for him, so I guess we should thank him at some point.
This is my child. He's somewhere in between 1 and 2 years old (we have no idea really), and he's a staffordshire terrier/chow chow/mastiff/labrador and who knows what else mix. He was a street dog and we rescued him from a local shelter. He's an angel and I basically treat him like I gave birth to him. LOOK AT THAT FACE FOR CRYING OUT LOUD.
As for what I DO outside of Wattpad (again, shocking really that I have a job that doesn't revolve around this website), it's complicated to explain. In short, I'm in finance, I had to take special tests and certifications to get the job I have, and it's not creative or writing related in any way, shape, or form. The important thing is that I work from home! So in a weird backwards way I do get paid to be on Wattpad for long periods of time, while wearing yoga pants and drinking smoothies.
NOW FOR SOME SERIOUS SHIT
I understand that myself and many other Wattpad writers write about sensitive topics. If y'all ever need someone to talk to, something upsets you, or you're just genuinely curious and want to be more educated on something, please message me. My inbox is literally open 24/7. I check my phone at 3 AM when I can't sleep. I promise I'm nowhere as mean as I seem.
Y'all can also follow me on instagram @ taylorzuppa if you're interested in my day to day struggles (such as evacuating for hurricanes, going to football games, obsessing over my dog, and eating a lot of oysters).
