The reason this blog was called “Shockingly Me” was because when the idea was suggested to me it was supposed to be a blog about real events and situations in my life that seemed to only ever happen to me. Hence the title, “Shockingly Me.”

However, very quickly it became an outlet for me – it became a home to my stories, to the fiction I love to write. While I don’t strive to write with the intent of shocking anyone, if you ask my grandmother or my mother, they’ll very loudly disagree.

The stories below are all stories that are based on real life experiences.
