Hey, Y’all! I’m Karen! I like to write at length about various topics. I tend to get very passionate about certain topics, so I’ll hope you’ll stay around for some witty conversation and plentiful libations.


I’m a Jersey Girl raised in a Southern world. I worked in higher education. I taught English in Japan for five and a half years. I worked in a Japanese boarding school in White Plains, NY. I worked for one of the largest commercial airline carriers in the US.


I attended the University of Florida (GO GATORS) and graduated with a Bachelors of Arts in English. I had multiple concentrations including literature, digital media, film, and Women’s Studies. I love college football, but you cannot convince me that there is a better conference the SEC. Ever.


I dabble with retro looks from time to time. I love classic cars. One day, I want a 1967 Ford Mustang fastback fully restored or Overhauled by Chuck Foose.

HU Boba Fett SWW

I am a massive nerd. Star Wars. Star Trek. Disney. Doctor Who. BBC Everything. I am a proud geek and I look for ways to incorporate it into my daily life. I used to game on consoles, but I prefer more individually creative formats like tabletop RPG like Dungeons and Dragons.


I used to run a whole bunch. As an Avenger, I wound up in the runDisney Avengers Half Wrap Up! (Oh yeah, Black Widow was there, too.). I do my best to live a healthy and happy lifestyle. Fitness is important, and I believe that physical fitness stems from  happiness.

Orlando, Florida; The City Beautiful

I now call Orlando, Florida home and I look forward to exploring all the wonderful things nearby. Don’t worry as I will take flight from time to time, too!


This is Zelda. She lives with me at The Lil House of the Nerdy. She loves the dog park, high jumping, and hogging the bed.
