I've always been curious about the "geek" life and its fancy terminology. I never thought that curiosity would get the best of me to the extent of considering taking a career path in that direction and yet, I am. When I was second-guessing myself, wondering if I would be able to learn code, my friend pointed out, "It'll be like learning a new language!" She lied, code is so much harder! I love languages. I speak some French and a bit of Korean, anytime I speak either, I feel like I have been transported to another country. Since I am yet to afford a trip to France or South Korea, I am relying on the aliens to abduct me one day and drop me off in one of these two countries - I would know how to ask for directions to a cute café with the best croissant or how long it takes to get to Gangnam Station. I enjoy reading, writing, travel, music, good food and good people with beautiful smiles. Some people pay me to write...Love the outdoors too!
