Comments:

Let's see. I thought I'd try filling in some of the gaps here. Since High School, I spent 4 years getting my Chemical Engineering degree at MSU. While there, I got into my share of "trouble", but obviously not THAT much trouble since I did graduate with my BS. (Plus my Dad made sure I stayed pretty poor.) After college I moved to Ann Arbor (the OTHER school), and sowed some of the wild oats that I couldn't afford while in college. (Let's say a Guinness or two, and many games of the board game Risk.) In Ann Arbor I met up with one of my college friends, and we decided to rent a place in Royal Oak. (She was getting sick of Ann Arbor too.) Royal Oak was a lot of fun too. We'd hit the dance clubs every now and again, I would seek out the Blues bands playing at the various clubs. After all of this goofing around, a couple of bad things happened to me that led me to seek out different life goals. (My Dad died of a massive heart attack at age 58, and I had to go under the knife to remove a tumor.) That was when I moved to Colorado.

I moved to Colorado in 1997, mostly because I love the mountains and everything outdoors. I've done a lot of camping, hiking, skiing, running, and biking since I moved here. My first week living in Colorado Springs I met my good friend Anne. She's Irish (back living in Dublin again now), and right off we found we had a lot in common; love for Guinness, cynical sense of humor... So, I sowed some more oats. :) Really, she just introduced me to about every Irish, Scottish, and English person in town. I got really good at understanding their accents. I also really enjoyed how much they would cuss, and have it not sound like cussing at all! So, Anne, myself and all of these european types spent the next 5 years camping, hiking and skiing pretty much all of the time. Then...

I met my husband in the health food store he owned. We were married a couple years later, had David 4 years after that. Now we enjoy doing all the same stuff as before, only now we make time for the Disney channel. :) Actually all of the outdoors stuff was temporarily put on hold (kid was too young to camp), but will hopefully resume this summer!

As far as work goes, I got a Chemical Engineering degree at MSU. Eventually started working for El Paso Corp for the SCADA IT group, and started teaching myself how to write code. (They thought I knew how to program in Fortran and VB when I got hired on. I lied...) Now I write software that is used to run the Natural Gas pipelines that deliver to all of your homes! (I hope that doesn't scare you.) I'm one of the lucky ones that really loves my work. (My husband thinks I'm sick.)

Speaking of my husband Mike; he's a very cool hippy type guy that loves to golf. (The one sport I'm not all that fond of.) He is a stay at home father now that we have David, and does a bang-up job I have to say! David loves golf too now, so hopefully they will hit the golf course this summer so I can start running again! Running is a stretch really, I should say a slightly slower than average jogging...

In the midst of all of the stuff mentioned above, I started studying Taoism. It's a very interesting philosophy. Really calms the mind. That led me to yoga, and an overall tree-hugging mindset. :) Peace!

School Story:

I kind of have trouble remembering specific stories of stuff that happened at MHS. I do remember things like the "Geek Club" (what I called it), and the fact that I used to layer my coats.
