Life sure is weird.

Timeline of my adulthood. Started working as a kid in parent’s business.

24-29 Wife, English major at a HBCU while working 3 part-time jobs (photographer, bookstore clerk, webmaster, grocery store cashier)

33-39 Wife,  professional geek. Grad school again (MFA). Poet.

I was an ambitious person so I got to do a lot before my body started falling apart, so I’m lucky.
