Hello, and welcome to my blog.
A little bit about me:
I grew up in the Puget Sound area of Washington State, from Marysville all the way down to Tacoma. After graduating from high school I spent the next several years working as a bookkeeping assistant for a variety of companies. As I had always been a nerd and avid book reader I spent a lot of my free time at the various public libraries in Pierce County. This all changed almost 10 years ago when I found myself at a crossroads in my life; I had to decide if I was going to continue on in a career field that I found uninspiring, or if I was going to change the course of my life. I chose the change and enrolled myself in college and haven’t looked back (much) yet.
I find it amusing that I ended up in library science. Amusing because I think I should have figured this out a long time ago.
Some of my interests:
I am fascinated with primary sources which I attribute to my undergraduate degree in history. Tracing the various branches of my family tree is something I have enjoyed in the past and something that I will continue to pursue. I enjoy reading fantasy and science fiction novels and am an unabashed Dr. Who fan. For fun outside of books or the internet I like to go on road trips to visit state and national parks as well as any historical site I might stumble upon. Museums, bookstores, and coffee shops are also on my list of likes. I won’t even get started on coffee. That would take up too many more paragraphs.
Thanks for stopping by.
