So now I have a blog. I'm not arrogant enough to think people want to know every little detail of my life, but I do have some funny stories. (Granted, I'm no Dooce...) but my life is a little nuts sometimes... and I have to tell someone about it! So here goes...
A little about me, if you care... I'm 32, and most days I act like it... but there are days I regress to about 12 (that also happens any time the word "fart" is mentioned. It's a funny word. I went to Copenhagen on spring break this year, and our bus company was called Turistfart. I had a field day.) I work with college students on a daily basis, and sometimes they seem about 12 too. But I love them... mostly. Some of them, I wonder when they will win their Darwin Award. It's a miracle they've gotten this far! I'm also a photographer, and this fall I will be teaching some of these genius students to take better photos they can promptly upload to Facebook.
I grew up in a small town in East Texas; I went to high school in a larger town in East Texas. I like East Texas; when you speak with me, you will know I hail from there. My family still lives there; it's not a bad place to be from.
Aside from advising and photographing, I read (LOTS) and I cook and I chase trains. I love trains, so much so that I went all the way to Ely, NV (one end of the lonliest road in America) to drive one last summer. BEST. DAY. EVER. Well, maybe second best; the day I married Thomas was pretty damn good, too. There was a lot of champagne. He's awesome. Even my dogs like him, can't ask for more than that, right? I love to travel, and I've been fortunate enough to go to some awesome places and contribute to their GDP. Dream destination: St. Petersburg, Russia.
So that's me... hop on board and let's see where the trip takes us... hopefully, not off the rails!
PS- the photo at the top- taken last summer on the Grand Canyon Railway somewhere between Williams, AZ and the South Rim of the Canyon. Another great day; Thomas was involved in that one too.
