I’m just trying to make sense of it all. And to put my ridiculously expensive education to some sort of decent use. Of course I majored in Soil Science and Creative Writing, so…although they seem disparate, I intend to combine my research skills with my writing skills and hopefully arrive at something worth reading.
I’m not really a cowgirl, but I do own a horse, and I am a native Texan (and I often wear cowboy boots more for practical reasons than for fashion). I live in Austin. I like it here. I love my friends, I love my family, and I love my dogs. The sucky economy has had a direct and lasting effect on my life, and I’ve fought as hard as one woman can to save the remnants of the life I had before it all crashed. I don’t know how successful I’ve been, but the “good fight” is why I get up every morning. That and coffee.
