Back in Action!


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!



About azuremarie

Bonjour, I'm Azure; a healthy dose of eccentricity best taken with a grain of salt. Most people describe me as sassy, and I like that. I love words, and think that anyone who can twist them in their mouth and make something beautiful come out is sexy and someone with whom I want to spend my time. I read a lot (bordering on too much), and am baller at boggle. I happen to be addicted to concerts/live music, and will listen to anything that can carry a beat, and even those that don't. I believe that being normal is boring, and love bright colors. I have a soft spot for animals, particularly dogs and horses, but I am beginning to be a cat person as well. Sometimes, I will admit that I like some animals better than some people - they're great listeners and don't judge. J'adore voyager. Someday I want to be able to look at a map of the world and say "I have been there, there, and there... and there", and have a memory attached to them all. I've recently begun to work at an organic juice bar, and diet/holistic health is starting to become a main passion of mine. I want to be able to experience our world, as well as help save it. Oh, and unicorns exist.
