Friends, friends –
It’s certainly been a minute, hasn’t it? A lot of things have happened, but I’ll spare you the nitty gritty details… for now anyway.
The biggest change is that I am now a Michigan resident! Saginaw to be exact. Kyle got a one-year assistant professor gig teaching economics at Saginaw Valley State University, and since my full-time job (another change) is 100% remote, I was easily able to make the move with him.
It’s been tiring furnishing a new apartment and takes some adjusting, as I’ve never lived with a significant other before, but it’s easier than I thought it would be. Thankfully we seem to coexist pretty well together. We also brought my lovely demon cat – Luna – with us, and I’m being a nervous cat mom and consistently worry about how she is adjusting. Side note: she’s fine, though has picked up a new habit of burrito-ing herself under the covers and is very pissed about her new diet.
However, there is one definite perk about being in a new area… and that’s exploring and discovering what Michigan has to offer! Cue the resurrection of my lovely blog. So, keep your eyes peeled for new posts about the adventures I am having, places I am visiting, and food I am cooking. I’ll do my best to keep yah intrigued 😉
I’ve also started playing around with these fun things called story maps, which is a really nice complement to my current career as a Geospatial Analyst. It’s more or less a way for me to document my various travels. I’ve completed one so far and have another two in the works. I have a link for the finished one under the “GIS Portfolio” umbrella of my blog, but I’ll post the link here for you guys to check out as well. I would also love to hear what you think!
That’s it for now. Stay tuned!
