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.
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.
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!
