I started blogging as a college student in 2007. I’m still in school, but now with a BA and MA and *this close* to finishing a PhD. Which shows you that however much things change, they also stay the same. Or something.
eat.sleep.read.love actually has nothing to do with the infamous Elizabeth Gilbert book. Rather, it takes its inspiration (or, more accurately, a case of plagiarism) from the well-known Indie bookstore slogan. Perhaps this is the point to tell you that I can be a bit of a book snob (albeit one that likes to be proved wrong) so I haven’t read the Gilbert book.
In any case, I’m in my early thirties, was born in California but have lived in the Netherlands, Germany, and Utah since then, and returned to the Bay Area in December 2015, happy to be home and a little puzzled that I made it back there.
My husband, Loel, and I got married in May 2016, and I’ve enthusiastically adopted his two pets: Josie the Dog (who thinks she’s a cat) and Mara the Cat (who knows she’s the boss). We had a baby, G., in August 2017, and I spend my days taking care of her, trying to add pages to my dissertation, and skyping with friends and family near and far.
I like to surround myself with books, food, and friends, perhaps even in that order. I have approximately five million blogs in my feed reader and spend a lot of time on-line with some coffee next to me.
Thanks for reading!
