“Where was I going with this?”

Writing is hard. Writing a blog about DIYs, life, love and the pursuits of nerds is even harder. The passion for storytell is rapidly diluted by the hardships of being a female engineer - married, motherless, and with no children - a unicorn in the world of geeks and STEM. My need to share my...

About MrsEnginerd

When I started writing under the Mrsenginerd pseudonym I was in the middle of a career shift. My employer had done a reduction in workforce exercise that had left me jobless a month after my 10th anniversary with the company (The Layoff).

Storming The Castle (Short Story)

Muffled whimpers echoed in the distance. The long hallway ended up in a moss covered door, deep into the dungeons of the soul. Breaching the locks with all my might, I discovered it's owner, small and weak, starved of sustenance and light, tucked away in a corner. The spark from its eyes was long gone,... Continue Reading →

Happy Third Anniversaire MrsEnginerd!

This labor of love started as a coping mechanism during The Layoff. The year 2015 was ripe with possibilities. My severance package allowed for a much deserved sabbatical after 10 uninterrupted years of service as a design engineer. In theory, this experience as an engineer would open any door I chose to unlock but I... Continue Reading →

#Adulting Sucks: What now?

Most of my time is spent talking about, writing or listening to my peeps about the pitfalls and peaks of adulting. My conclusion: We are all in a collective slump. Yes, there are some cool things happening - kids, weddings, promotions, per adoptions, vacations - but the underlying feeling is that society's expectations aren't meeting... Continue Reading →
