First, I do have a favor to ask – if you don’t actually know me, would you be so kind as to comment and let me know how you found the blog?

First, my other blog really is broken.  My domain host moved to cloud servers, I downloaded everything so I could re-upload it to the new servers, something somewhere went wrong and I haven’t had the time to really sit down and figure out where it all went sideways.

I’m in my 40s, living in Northern Virginia and I am currently in grad school studying history.  I love to read and write, which is very helpful for grad school.  Like most grad students, I have a love/hate relationship with it all, but the love has far outweighed the “beat my head into the wall” moments.  I’m not sure what I am going to do after grad school, but the next year will be spent figuring that out while I finish up.  (If I manage to figure out how to make money by just being awesome, I will let you know.)

I love to travel – there is just something about a change of scenery, even if it is just for a few days that is so recharging.  So far, my favorite place I have been is Aruba, with London being a very close second.  I also love food.  I don’t think I can really be considered a “foodie” but damn, I love to eat.  I swear, half of why I want to go back to Aruba is the food.  (88º in January doesn’t hurt, either.)  Honestly, when I travel, I spend as much time figuring out where I’m going to eat just as much as what I am going to do and see.

I have two cats and a dog, and a terrific brother who takes care of them when I jet off.

So, that’s me.  This blog is about anything and everything.
