Who is Yoork?


Hello there!

This is the “all about me” section.  Not much to tell though.  I’m a young professional who blogs in her spare time as a creative outlet, hobby, and a way to enjoy the internet to the fullest.

My blog is essentially my diary.  Although completely opposite from the old lock-and-key, it’s out there for all the world to see!

My Fave Quotes:

Anything ever uttered by Blanche Hunt

“The quickest way to double your money is to fold your bills in half and put them back in your pocket.”

– Anonymous

“Let me describe the perfect date:  I take her out to a nice dinner.  She looks amazing.  Some guy tries to hit on her… now he wants to fight.  So I grab him – I throw him into the juke box!  Then the other ninja’s got a knife – and he comes at me – we grapple.  I turn his knife on him.  Blood on the dance floor.  She’s scared now.  I take her home.  I’m holding her in my arms.  I reach for a kiss…I hear something in the leaves.  I flip her around, she gets a poison arrow right in her back.  She was in on it the whole time…but I knew.”

– Dwight Schrute

“I’m living like there’s no tomorrow…because there isn’t one.”

– Don Draper

“Advertising is based on one thing: happiness.  And do you know what happiness is?  Happiness is the smell of a new car.  It’s freedom from fear.  It’s a billboard on the side of the road that screams with reassurance that whatever you’re doing is OKAY.  YOU are OKAY. ”

– Don Draper

“It’s strange to have a creature out there, a deeply mutated version of yourself running loose and screwing everything up.  I wonder if this is how parents feel.”

– Dexter Morgan
