I’m a novelist with a baking problem. Or is it a baker with a writing problem? Singing problem? Painting? Running? The answer is hard to pin down. There are so many things that I love to do and explore, and this blog is all about taking the time to do them. With so many pressures pulling us in a hundred different directions, it’s sometimes a struggle to carve out space for the things that we enjoy. But what would life be like if we didn’t stop and think or tinker or roam to somewhere new?
In my “normal” life, I’m an academic advisor for Liberal Arts and Sciences and Pre-Med students. My job is pretty awesome. Every day I meet with students who are moving forward with their plans for a bigger and better life. These students–from traditional college age to returning adults–are all coming to our office for help, and we’re more than happy to give it. My co-workers are some of the warmest, most passionate people I’ve met, and each day I look forward to going to work. It can’t get much better than that.
When I’m not in the kitchen, on the trail, or sprawled across the couch with a good book, I enjoy singing at the top of my lungs in my car (usually to the soundtrack of show tunes) or fiddling about with my paper crafting tools–my newest hobby. For Christmas I received my very first sewing machine, so I’m also teaching myself how to sew. I’m sure that all of these will make an appearance on Time to Blink in the not too distant future, so keep a steady eye on the horizon. Until then, sit back, read, and enjoy.
