The stories told on these pages are the stories that make up my life.  They tell of a life full of anxiety, depression, happiness, contentment, sickness and health. They tell of my childhood, adulthood and everything in between. They tell of my loves, losses, family, friends, frenemies and enemies.

I am a small-town woman with big dreams, working full-time at a university where I manage an office of approximately 30 students and teaching part-time at a community college.
