Death Becomes Her

Throughout my life, the only constant was my grandmother, Delia. Bravely, she took on the role of guardian and caregiver while my mother finished Officer Training School and other responsibilities, thousands of miles away from me. Fort Huachuca had been proven to not be the best place to raise a child, and after a few […]

Not all is lost

Anger,Fear,Anxiety,RageThe crushing blow of a reality without you makes me weak,dull,mad,violent. I crawl into a ball gripping tightly to memories that still remain,Wishing I was in your arms, peacefully unaware of the lifetime I will endure without you. Who will build me up when others tear me down?Who will love me unconditionally, without hesitation?Who will […]

The George Floyd Demonstrations Conundrum

I’ve walked streets in cities across the world after riots and massive protests. Feeling the anger and despair is definitely more effective when you experience firsthand the destruction. In Europe and South Americs citizens didn’t clean up after their marches. Many considered it disrespectful to erase the aftermath quickly, as the masses wanted the government […]

Writing During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Day 21. It’s hard to believe that eight weeks ago we were all worried about the Australian wild fires, the impeachment of President Trump, and earthquakes in Puerto Rico. Primary elections were in the horizon and the Democratic party had 20+ candidates to choose from. In between debates, fears of the world ending, the routine […]

Should I Stay or Should I Go?

Engineering is my calling, my vocation. I solve problems inside and outside the industry, for free in my spare time; for people I hate to love and love to hate. Ironically, this drive to leave things better than when I found them doesn’t translate well to my career. The “wall of No” I hit daily […]

A Woman and Her Doggo

A familiar whining and whinging pulls me back from the dishwasher and my introverted thoughts. The slider door to the backyard is open but that doesn’t really matter to Zach who instead of using this exit sits noisily by the French doors. “Zach, come on!” His behavior defies any explanation. I’ll never know why the […]

Challenging for Challenging’s Sake

Unless you are a teenager testing boundaries to discover your path, or a person on a journey of self discovery in which all the correct answers were revealed to you by the gods themselves, stop challenging others just for kicks. Don’t contest because they don’t fit your mold of what an Anime fan should be […]

January 32, 2020

Many will remember the month of January in 2020 as its own separate year. A big huge giant never ending Monday. Between the January 7th earthquakes and month long aftershocks, the Australian wildfires, Trump’s impeachment trial, the impending war with Iran (where a commercial flight fell, victim of a missile attack), Kobe and Gianna Bryant’s […]

“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 […]

Lost

ANGER. A flury of snow. The fury of a thousand calls and text that will never be sent or seen; The deep ire of learning to live an unchampioned life. The realization that the rotting flesh led to unresolved issues and excess emotional baggage because we couldn’t properly say goodbye. There you lie, Beyond the […]
