About Me

This is still a work in progress, despite me originally drafting this a few years ago.

Who am I? I’m an avid reader, self-professed nerd and introvert. I’m (sigh) approaching middle age, and still working on figuring out exactly who I am. My life has taken many unexpected twists, turns, ascents, and descents.

Am I where I thought I’d be 25 years ago? Heck, no. But I am where I want to be, doing what I love to do. I’m a researcher and faculty member at a large University. I love to run, and work out daily to keep my sanity (and get my research ideas). I’m am not a fashionista, a rebel, or a trendsetter.

I try to live the life I love without making anyone else unhappy.

My posts are usually prompted by a quote or bit of text I’ve read, or a random idea that pops into my head, usually at the exceptionally inconvenient time of 0200.

I love hearing from the few people who find their way here. Connecting with others is one of the best unanticipated benefits of this whole blogging thing. Please feel free to email me, too; my email is [email protected]

Welcome to my blog. Pull up a chair, and I hope you stay a while.
