about me

Well, hello there! My name is Victoria and I am the primary writer of "For What It's Werth".

I'm sure you're wondering who I am. I mean, that is usually why someone clicks the "about me" link.

I'll start off with all the formal blabber: I graduated college with my Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering in 2015 from the University of Cincinnati and have been working full-time in the field since. I made the move to Columbus, OH in 2016 for work, and can't imagine myself being anywhere else doing anything else.

In 2019, I started a side hustle as a Color Street stylist. Whether or not you are a fan of the "direct sales" model of business, I've found that it works for me. I love having my nails done, but hate the time commitment and price tag of the salon. I'm not going to force you to love them or join my team, but I will vouch for how much this nail polish has changed my life.

Along with those "jobs", I also will randomly pick up other gigs: teaching swim lessons, graphic design, babysitting, petsitting ... I guess you could consider me a work-a-holic.

Outside of work and occasionally blogging, I can be found binge-watching Netflix (mostly crime-related shows), reading, being involved with my church, or being outside enjoying nature. I'm an expert at making it look like I have my life together, and that's what I aim to share with you on my blog.

You might occasionally see me mention the fact that I have a turtle. Yes, it's true. Her name is Harley Quinn and I've had her since 2014. I also rescued my "baby kitty", Charlotte, in 2019.

I like to think that I'm funny (but I am completely aware that I am not.) I carry around a calculator with me at all times, even in my fancy purse. I will try any kind of food once. I am a firm believer that brunch is the most important meal of the day. I have a little bit of an impulse control problem, which results in multiple Amazon Prime boxes showing up at my house a week. If I could meet one celebrity before I die, it would be Gordon Ramsay.
