I used to think my problem was that I didn’t know what I wanted to be when I grew up. I now know that my problem is that I want to be EVERYTHING when I grow up. I’m an archaeologist by trade, with degrees in Anthropology and Resource Management. My dream list of degrees, if I ever find myself with unlimited time and money, includes subjects as varied as Computer Science, History, Horticulture, Business, Folklore, and a number of other things. As it is, I’ve taken some courses from the National Institute of Genealogical Studies, attended my first Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy in January, 2013, and am now beginning an MLIS program.
My interests are so varied that I have difficulty focusing on any one thing for any length of time, but I spend a lot of my free-time either working on genealogy (both my own and that of friends), working in my garden, or sewing. I really SHOULD spend more time playing with the 8″ telescope I bought a couple years back, as I have delightfully clear night skies where I live.
You’ll find me blogging about genealogical research questions, MLIS courses, sewing patterns, and tomatoes.
