I love vegetables. Pretty much any kind. Boiled beets are kind of gross though. I also love junk food.
I am very tall and tend to be quiet. If we ever meet in person and you decide to inform me that I am tall, I will be slightly amused. If we ever meet in person and you decide to inform me that I am quiet, I will be slightly annoyed. Just FYI.
I like to hike and spend time outside. I also like writing, painting, reading, and listening to NPR. Working on a thesis limits the amount of time I have to spend on these activities, but it also makes me appreciate them more when I do allow myself to do them. I sometimes wonder if attaining a Masters degree is worth all the work and pain and angst, but on the other hand, this experience pretty much guarantees that I will never be bored or take free time for granted again. Ever. Parenthood has a similar effect, but I enjoy spending time with my kiddo, something I cannot say about statistical work.
Speaking of parenthood, I’ve been a mom since May of 2014. What shall I say about parenthood? So many of the cliches hold true: It’s exhausting, but you get used to the exhaustion. It will test your relationship with your significant other. It is indeed the “Longest Shortest Time,” and I’m hugging my baby while I can, because they really do grow so, so fast.
