A little about me…

Who am I?

I'm an introverted, fangirly geek who loves to read and draw, but doesn't have nearly enough time for either. I live with my wonderful husband along with an adorable bunny, a rascally cat, and a hilarious but very melodramatic dog. I have an unhealthy obsession with chocolate and also just a tad too much imagination at times.

For several years I worked as a professional web designer and developer, a job that I had a tricky love/hate relationship with and in the end just left me frustrated, rage-filled, and depressed. Out of the bitter ashes of that career, however, I rekindled my original dream of working in a library.  After flinging myself headfirst back into the frigid waters of appropriate post-secondary schooling, I eventually graduated and am now employed as a part-time library assistant/circulation assistant in two different library systems.
