Meet Me - American Girl Style

So the other day I was reminiscing about the design of the AG catalogues of old when I remembered something they used to do for each HC and still do for the GotYs: there would be a little bio by a big picture of the doll. Only, the bio would be less of a paragraph-style bio and more of a list-style bio, like Where she lives: Sackets Harbor, In her day: The Americans were fighting the British, Her biggest dream: Being the captain of her own ship*, etc. Then I got to thinking some more and decided it would be cool to fill out one of those "list bios" for myself. Ya know, so you guys could get to know me a little more, besides the basic stuff.

Mine will be somewhat longer than those in the catalogue because I'm pulling list items from all different characters.

So, sans further ado:

Who she is: A 13-year-old fireball with a love for the written word

Fun fact: She once tried blue cheese mousse, and it was actually super good!

Pet: Her very friendly flat-coated retriever, Stella

Proud Moment: Getting accepted into a college creative writing camp**

Nicknames: General of the Fiend Army, Queen of Middle-earth, Lady of the Red Shoe Emoji, President of the Swag League, Co-Head of the Council of Shunning, Conquerer of Malta, and Sorcerer of us All***

Dislikes: Asparagus (she is quite like her favorite doll, Mia, in that respect), sexism, racism, disability discrimination, and when she doesn't do well in school.

Best described as: Smart and geeky but quiet

Favorite dessert: Chocolate lava cake

In her day: The world is trying to find its feet on matters of social justice and policy

Prized possession: Her stuffed Winnie-the-Pooh that she's had since she was a baby

Lives with: Her parents and dog

Best friend: Reagan, who keeps her from going completely off the rail......

What she loves to do: Read, write, blog, and play piano

Favorite books: The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Witches Abroad, From the Mixed up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, Mrs. Pollifax and the Second Thief

Favorite school subject: Social studies

Well, that's me! Hopefully you learned a little more about me. If you'd like me to do this for any of my dolls, just comment down below with which doll you'd like!

Namarië,
Ellie

  1. It still amazes me that there are so many bloggers that are the same age as me. I might go do this on my blog, if that's okay with you. But on the AG catalog, Caroline was way to many dreams for a 9 year old year. Don't you think?

    1. IKR! There are people of so many ages who enjoy dolls and blogging, you wouldn't expect to meet a ton your age. But it's super cool when you do! :)
      Of course I'm fine with it, dear - just as long as you give me credit for coming up with the idea and put a link to my post in your post. :)
      IDK - I think maybe some of the things she did were unrealistic, but generally the younger you are, the bigger you dream. But I definitely see where you're coming from! :)

  3. I remember those!!!!! I use to love reading them.
    AND CHOCOLATE LAVA CAKE YESSSSS!!!!
    I think you should do one for Caroline since she's the newest. Plus idk much about her yet.
    And I totally agree with you on all of the dislikes. Except asparagus. It's one of the only vegetables I actually like.

    1. IT WAS JUST SO FRUSTRATING LIKE NO ONE'S GONNA BE INTERESTED IN THE NEW CATALOG IF YOU CAN JUST USE YOUR OTHER ONE THAT'S EXACTLY LIKE IT :P
      We tolerate all. :)
