Ordinary tales of an ordinary woman.
Anecdote - (n) - a brief story of an interesting, amusing or biographical event.

         This is what Merriam-Webster has to say about things. My take on it is that I've had this life, and it's not been all that long thus far, and it's not been all that exciting, but it's been life.

         Everyday, people have things happen to them, and they think, "I bet nobody else has ever done anything that stupid/crazy/brilliant/dangerous"...insert an adjective of your choice. They never realize that these events are ordinary events, that they happen to other people ten million times a day, and that they are not alone.

         I'm just an ordinary girl with an ordinary story...and that's why I want to tell it.

***Note: The chapters of this story are finally in order according to how they happened in my life. I apologize greatly for any confusion this may incur (for all two of you who've been reading this). The NEWEST entry is "Fathers and Daughters.***
