Hello! I’ve kept this blog for several years with a particular focus on my travels and trips. It’s really kept me from feeling like my brain is made of Swiss cheese because I can’t remember things. I use my maiden-middle-name as my “first name” on the blog because I try to keep Google-y patients away from my personal life. Maybe I think strangers care a lot more about me than they do but better safe than sorry!
I lived in Silicon Valley after a just-shy-of-two-years stint in Japan. But don’t worry, my culture shock was minimized by watching the TV show Silicon Valley, which is hilarious and sometimes, a little more mockumentary than was probably intended initially.
Now, I live in San Diego after a three year stay in Virginia. I wrote about East Coast travels but I definitely have more suggestions for the mid-Atlantic area if you’re ever interested. [EDIT: Old news! Now I live in the Bay Area after a three year stay in San Diego. I’m out of the Navy and working an academic civilian job. Exciting, new, and a bit of an adjustment but in the best way possible!]
Hobby-wise, I enjoy reading modern/literary fiction. I’m currently part of a book club that I really like. I run and I’m fast for a recreational runner but slow for anyone who runs for reals. My husband and I rock climb together, although he is much better at it than I am. I like cooking and throwing dinner parties, usually with a mingling, food station feel rather than formal sit-down.
Feel free to comment or email- I’ll make you a gold card fan club member (I am so funny).
