Science and Free Stuff

I miss writing, but only when I have interesting things to say.  Of course, interesting is in the eye of the beholder, so I apologize if you’re bored to tears.  Or vomit.  Anyway, I like to write when big things are happening, and for me the biggest thing to happen lately is that I live … Continue reading

Another Year on the Streets

It’s been so long since I’ve written that WordPress didn’t even recall my username, even though I distinctly remember ticking the “Remember Me” checkbox sometime last August.  For shame. I realized today is significant for me, and not simply because it’s Memorial Day.  This time last year was when this whole blog began.  It was … Continue reading

The Story So Far

It’s about time for an update.  The big news for now is that I managed to get a job.  Yay!  So even though money is still tight, I won’t have to leave Columbus and move back to Youngstown.  And perhaps in even bigger news, I kind of love the job 🙂 It’s a really new … Continue reading

The Summer of Significance

This summer has been pretty unique for me so far, and not simply because it’s the first one in a long while where I’m unemployed and spending an awful lot of time with my Roku. If you would ask me if I was seeing progress in the things that I hoped this time off of … Continue reading

Just An Update

Home Sweet Home

Last night I got home from a five day stay-cation, if you will, at my parents house.  And it was amazing.  I got up each morning and drank coffee and crocheted out in the pavilion with my dogs until it got too hot outside, and I spent time with my parents hanging out and catching … Continue reading

Hello, Sunrise

At about ten thirty last night I decided to do a bit of reading thinking it’s a good way to unwind at the end of a day, and once I get too tired to keep my eyes open, I’ll just drift off nicely to sleep.  Next stop, it’s 5am, the book is finished, and I … Continue reading

Blendon Woods

This morning I drove over to the Westerville area to visit Blendon Woods Metro Park. The first thing one notices when they drive in (assuming they have been to other metroparks) is that this one is heavily wooded right off the bat. Many of the others start with picnic and playground areas with large parking … Continue reading

Blacklick Woods Metro Park

This morning I drove across town to go to the Blacklick Woods Metro Park whose main entrance is off of Livingston Ave on the E side of Brice Rd.  Its trails connect easily to Huber Park (across the street) that runs along Blacklick Creek all the way up to E Broad and, in the other … Continue reading
