    Hi all! I created a profile a few years ago, with the hope of making some friends and becoming Aes Sedai :), when life got somewhat in the way. Situations have resolved and I feel like a whole new person!

    I still like long-distance/touring/endurance cycling, still love reading, knitting, and painting (still badly), and I am now a musical theatre nerd - I directed my first community teen musical this last year! - but in the last few years I've also quit my office job and instead managed a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program before deciding to finally do what I've dreamed of for at least a decade: I'm now back at college finishing my BS in Oceanography, and I hope to pursue a PhD in it too! #GoBeavs :D :)

    Weirdly, and idk how quite to say this because none of my close friends read the WoT books so I don't know that they'd understand, but... during the difficulties my family was going through and sorting my life out again, I read the books constantly (audiobook format mostly), and I found a lot of solace in a sort of "what would an Aes Sedai do" mindset. I feel like I've comported myself through some struggles by thinking that way. And I've really liked thinking of myself that way. So yeah. :) Happy to be back! Hello! Pls be my friend! lol

    Hello, and welcome back. :)

    Reading has always been a solace to me; I see nothing out of the ordinary there. ;)
