About This Blog

This is a place for me to collect and share my thoughts about life and the world around me. Sometimes I’m captivated by the beauty of it all, sometimes I’m utterly confused, sometimes I’m irked by everything and everybody, and sometimes I despair of the difficulty and misery in the world. Yes, it’s true! I experience the full range of normal human emotions. The distinction is that I live inside my own head enough to ponder things more than a lot of people do. I’ve wanted to be a writer (of undetermined type) since I was very young. It’s one of those aspirations that will never die, so I figure that I should fulfill it to some capacity. Bear with me as I navel-gaze and indulge in clunky prose.

I’m 31 years old and I’ve been building a life in Portland, Oregon, since June 2008. Before that I spent seven years in the remote college town of Arcata, California. When I was in college, I thought I might like to settle down there after graduation; however, I slowly realized that Humboldt County was too damn small for me. After doing some soul-searching, I quit my job and moved to the Pacific Northwest.

Like everybody else, I’m trying to find all the pieces and fit them together: a job, a career, a home, friends, romance, and explorations. Currently I work as a software tester, with tentative plans to remain in the tech field, although my bachelor’s degree is in natural resources planning. In my spare time I take photographs, walk and hike, go for bike rides short and long, read and write, play board games and video games. I’m a wallflower who likes to get out and dance once in a while. My self-awareness and appreciation for the subtleties of life don’t mean that I take myself, or life, too seriously . . . usually.
