I’m a senior soil sciences/geology student at Oregon State University in Corvallis, OR. I’ve been at OSU much too long, and I’m looking forward to graduating (whenever that date arrives). I’m also an alumnae with Phi Sigma Rho, which is a social sorority for engineers (and scientists). Before you ask, no, we didn’t just study and talk about math all day. We spent time together just like any other sorority. Some chapters have a house – we didn’t because we’re so small. I love my sisters. I’ve also started Kendo at OSU, and hope to make some new friends now that most of mine have graduated and left.
I was born and raised in California, with some stints in England for school and life. As much as I try to deny it, I am such a California girl it borders on ludicrous. I always complain about going home and hating it, but once I’m there, I love to sit in the sun, see my neighbours and friends, and spend time with my family. The shopping doesn’t hurt, either!
I’m now in remission for my third bout with cancer. I’ve had lymphoma and osteosarcoma, which are two very different kinds of cancer, and both with their own challenges. Many people say I’m too young to have gone through that so many times, but I’ve had to deal with it for so long that I just see it as a part of life. You can see cancer posts in the archive, if you so choose.
So, this blog is an amalgam of different thoughts and opinions. It’s not as well put together as other blogs I’ve read, but it’s not completely atrocious. Please take this with a grain of salt. I’m not perfect, and I tend to ruffle feathers sometimes. Usually it’s just in jest, but again, please don’t be overly offended 🙂 Thanks for taking the time out of your day to read! *thumbs up*
