I've had my profile pretty much blank for several months while I've had other things to do. Actually, I still do have a lot more on my plate than there's really room for, but that's what this year's been all about.
So, what's my story? Well, I'm in between in all sorts of ways these days. Liminal even. I'm in between careers, having had to tack back towards doing IT after moving back to the States from the UK (in late 2012) to tide myself over and to absorb the costs of moving. I'm in between places, as I know that Providence isn't really somewhere I want to settle in. I only moved here for a job in October of last year. And I'm in something of a social limbo here in Providence while most of my social circles are elsewhere and simultaneously kept on life support and mediated poorly by the horrors that are facebook and google plus.
So that's where I am now. I'm also currently giving a lot of energy over to an online certificate program in GIS, which I am finding to be fascinating, challenging and infuriating both serially and in parallel. That's what most of this year is about for me, really. That and hunting for a grad school berth (at my age? Yeah, I know).
