A little bit about me. Let’s start out with getting a little bit personal! I will be celebrating my fourth wedding anniversary this Thursday! I have one beautiful daughter, Leighton, whom is two and a half years old, and I am due to have my second child on March 26, 2017! I have been working as a petroleum wellsite geologist for the past five and a half years, and recently just obtained my professional status in the field (P. Geo). I also have two crazy Boston terriers, named Ziggy and Xena thought round out my crazy little family!
Now for the ‘fun’ stuff! My favorite bands are The Beatles and Marilyn Manson. I love tattoos, and if I could afford more, I would probably be covered with them! I have self-diagnosed myself as having a minor case of OCD and I love symmetry and order. In fact, it drives me crazy to think how I have a part sleeve on one arm but not the other, and don’t even try to change the TV volume unless you do it in increments of five! I love to lead an active life style, which includes playing hockey, fastball and golf! However, my true passion is everything chocolate and desserts! And just to clarify, a dessert DOES NOT have fruit in it, or anything else that may be considered ‘healthy’! Also, in case these first two blogs have not made it clear, I have a very dry and sarcastic sense of humor, probably something I should work on changing.
Jumping into a new degree in the third year has already proved to be a bit challenging and gives the feeling of already being behind the eight ball. With that, my three goals for the semester are 1) to get to know you all better! (I genuinely mean that!), 2) to gain confidence in my teaching and prepping abilities, and 3) find a way to balance both a family life and school life in such a way that neither suffers!
