Hi! I’m Rebecca Anne Coburn. Most people call me Becca, but you can call me just about anything as long as you don’t call me late for dinner. I’m a highschool senior, but I dual-enroll in several classes at the local college. It’s a little weird, being at least a year or two younger than all the other people in those classes, but I deal with it.
Besides being a student, I have a part-time job at a craft supply store. I usually enjoy it- well, working the register isn’t my favorite thing in the world, but the rest isn’t too bad. I especially like doing the craft demos. I mean, I get paid to play around with some craft for an hour or two and teach anyone who shows up how to do it. Yeah. Pretty awesome. The best part of my job, though, is definitely the employee discount. As an avid knitter and a dabbler in various other crafts- knitting, jewelry making, and latchhook chief among them- I find myself buying new supplies at least once a month.
Knowing that I’m into crafts, you might be surprised by my other major hobby: shooting. Don’t get the wrong idea; I’m not a gun nut. But I’ve been shooting since I was eight and my dad showed me how to use his old BB rifle. After almost ten years, I’m a pretty good markswoman. I like rifles best, but pistols are cool too as long as they don’t have a ginormous kick. I’m hoping to get my concealed carry permit as soon as I turn 21; we’ll see how that works out.
Quick facts time! My favorite color is blue, though gold’s pretty nice too. My birthday is August 23. I have one younger sister and two cats, all three of whom like playing with yarn as much as I do. (My sister crochets; the cats just make knots for me to untangle.) I’m a Christian, and besides going to church on Sundays, I’ve also attended Awana for most of my life. I have a weakness for chocolate and cheesecake, and if you put them together . . . mmm, heaven. Oh, and one more thing: I have superpowers: healing and time manipulation to be exact.
How’d I end up with powers? Great question. Unfortunately, I don’t know the answer. All I know is that I recover from injuries ridiculously fast- once I broke my leg falling down the stairs and I was fine a few hours later- and I can heal other people’s injuries too. I can also make time speed up or slow down within a certain radius, which comes in handy when I have a lot of schoolwork to do and need extra time, or when I’m starving while waiting for my food at a restaurant.
However I got my powers, though, I hope to use them in a worthwhile way, not just for making my own life easier.
