Hello everyone and welcome to my ultra fantastic never before seen blog. The header is a picture I took at the peak of Algonquin Mountain in the Adirondacks in New York. That was probably the best hike I’ve done yet, I can only dream of living near something so amazing.
I’m a 5th year on my victory lap in Ecosystem Restoration, and I want to eventually work with invasive species removal or urban stormwater runoff in the future. At the moment, I have zero plans for post-graduation besides take some time off to travel and do something impulsive like move to Puerto Rico. I am personally fascinated by alpine habitats like the one in my header, and my favorite plant would have to be ferns for some reason. I think it might be because the way that they look makes me feel like I’m living in Jurassic Park? That would be super interesting, though I probably wouldn’t last very long there.
I made the classic move from engineering to something else once I found out that the vast majority of engineers don’t do anything fun in their careers and that just won’t do. I transferred into ENR and have loved it. By far my two best qualities are my pets Hobbes (cat, named after Hobbes from Calvin and Hobbes aka the best work of fiction ever created) and Teddy (dog, corgi, named because if they made Teddy Grahams to look like dogs they’d look just like him). Fun fact, he belongs to my significant other whose last name is Eddy, so technically the dog’s name is Teddy Eddy. I call him Tedward Edward when he’s in trouble.
