Quick Biography


Stubborn Ox is the Personal Blog site of a 30-something girl named Deanna. She grew up in Nova Scotia, Canada but moved to Alberta, Canada in 2011. She enjoys exploring her community and travelling to new places to learn about new cultures. Her motto in life is “If it’s not fun, don’t do it” and she hates it when people complain about things that they have the power to change. She is still trying to figure out what she wants to do with her life and tries to take things one day at a time. She is a Taurus and therefore pretty stubborn and likes things done her way.

In addition to this blog site (formerly known as Fantasy Nerd), she also owns a web directory called Nerd Listings which has been open since 2006. She also ran an events listing called Drag Him Out from 2014 to 2019 but decided to merge it with this website to save money.
