At different points in my life, I've wanted to be a clown, a surgeon, a cop, a chef, and an investigative journalist. I thought these wonderful career choices would pave the road to happiness, riches, and respect. Moving somewhere chic and inspiring, where people valued education, travel, and creativity was my ultimate goal. I would eventually earn a PhD, bop 'round town in a Jaguar, and meet my dashing male companion at all the greatest places to sip martinis before retiring for the evening, and waking up as a bombshell, articulate, culturally-savvy, successful version of me.
Presently, I live in Ferndale, and life is pretty great. I never did leave the Detroit area. With the exception of vacation, I'll probably be here for the long-haul. I almost never drink martinis, graduate school might happen in the fall, I drive a Saturn held together by zip-ties, and have several dashing male companions - none of whom I am dating. I work for a feel-good nonprofit. The town I live in has proven to be inspiring and creative. I am surrounded by people I enjoy keeping company with. I have developed a weakness for stray dogs. I am happy, and frequently feel deep gratitude in regards to unanswered prayers.
