I don’t feel comfortable identifying as a twenty-something because I’m so rapidly creeping up on thirty. Something I’m not entirely comfortable with. I’m most certainly a nerd, as in, “I enjoy hand coding HTML and am amused by D&D references.”. I’m more than a little socially awkward and prone to anxiety. I probably swear too much. People who have worked with me professionally have a hard time believing it, but I’m pretty lazy.

I love my family, animals (dogs in particular), and belly dance. I love the music that I love, for better or worse. I love good food. And a lot of bad food. Aesthetics are stupidly important to me; I’ve been known to fall deeply in love with a piece of furniture and am very interested in mildly obsessed with interior design. I spend way too much time on the internet. I believe in real books, not tablets.

I struggle between a desire to do All The Right Things and a resistance to Things That Require Effort. And, for the most part, that’s what this blog is about: working full-time at a job I enjoy, but which can be both physically and emotionally demanding; trying to create a comfortable home for my little family (currently comprised of myself, one boyfriend, two dogs, and a cat); and making the changes necessary to live the healthier, more environmentally friendly, life that I want for myself.
