From the 9 to 5 in Ohio, to acting in LA and working every odd job possible. Then came Idaho working at the most gorgeous ranch imaginable. Next adventure – happening currently – is a deployment to Antarctica to support the US Antarctic Program. Actively saying “yes” to opportunities and loving it.
Hello again. It’s Friday night here, December 2nd. “How is it December already?” Says everyone in the states. I’m happy it’s December. I have 73 work days left. I get one day off a week, and the other 6, I work 10 hours a day. Working that long doesn’t bother me, mind you, it’s just… Read More »Volunteering
Hi there. It’s been a couple weeks since I’ve had the energy to write an update. There’s a lot to that sentence that I won’t really bore you with. But I’m here, it’s 8:23am on Saturday, November 20th, and I’ve got an hour until I have to go into work. For what it’s worth, I’m… Read More »Adventures
The (hopefully) main picture of this page was taken at 1:26am. Pretty trippy. It’s only a little dark because it’s overcast and it was taken a couple weeks ago. Right now it’s always bright – like, high noon kind of bright – all day every day. Unless there’s cloud cover. I’m sitting in the lounge… Read More »Stream of Consciousness
Hello. Welcome. The main picture on this post is me on top of “Ob Hill” or “Observation Hill” as it’s called in its entirety. It’s not terribly high, by any stretch – just under 800 feet of elevation – but it’s pretty vertical and basically entirely scree. There’s actually something they do here called the… Read More »Late Night Full-Sun Rambling
Today is Monday, October 17th and it’s 8:47am. We’re in New Zealand time. I’m still waking up with my coffee. I thought I’d update with some of the things that have been different than I expected or wouldn’t have thought of, and I’ll also talk about the last couple days. Oh, and if anyone has… Read More »Seals and Helicopters
This’ll give you a little insight into how crazy difficult it is getting down here. You know, from my previous post, that the first time we tried flying down, we didn’t make it off the runway. I say that THANKFULLY we didn’t make it off the runway. Due to a number of factors, the group… Read More »Boomerang
Hi all. I hope one or two of you were wondering if I’m stuck in New Zealand or if I made it to Antarctica. Well, here it is, my first post from Antarctica! I don’t know what it’s going to look like, really. Because I tried to get onto wordpress and it’s such a beefy… Read More »Made it to the ice
What a morning. Last night, 007 style, we got our marching orders for this morning. Paper-under-the-door type information slid to us. Felt pretty cool. In the scheme of things, it wasn’t really. We were in a meeting yesterday that said we were supposed to be ready for the shuttle to pick us up at the… Read More »Attempt Number One
Turns out, tomorrow morning, I’m leaving on a jet plane for Antarctica. The continent. It’s a different one than I’ve been on. I heard a statistic that fewer than 1% of the world population has ever set foot on Antarctica. I choose to think that is fact without any further research. In theory, tomorrow night… Read More »Leaving on a Jet Plane
Kia ora! That’s “New Zealand” for hello – but it seems so much more. It’s said in one fell swoop like “keyora” ish. ANYWHO. As of 5:30am New Zealand time, I was in New Zealand time. I’ll share all about that/this, but between my last post and this morning, it’s been a whole thing. In… Read More »Bienvenue a New Zealand
Hello. It seems that my marketing clickbait worked. Nice to have you stop by. A LOT has happened since I’ve spoken with you last, so I’ll try to be as succinct as possible – starting at the dawn of time. I hope you read this post in my voice. 2021: I was going to open… Read More »Getting You Up to Speed
If you subscribe to my blog, I’ll send you an email if I post something new. I don’t exactly have a lot of Internet bandwidth down here, so my posts will be meaty when they happen (or vegany if you please).
