I recently left a job as cake decorator at Maggie Moo's Ice Cream
on Prince Ave. Before delighting audiences everywhere with ice cream
magic, I was a student worker in the Acquisitions Cataloging Dept for
about two years. I applied for this position because, as many of you know -
student loans don't pay themselves- and so it was time to find a real job.
The position came open and some inside sources referred me to it. (Thanks
Janice, Brandy, and Sarah). I really enjoyed working here as a student so
it was a sound decision to come back.
Like so many people, school brought
me to Athens. I graduated cum laude in August of 2004 with a BA in
romance languages (French and Spanish). My hobbies are varied; I'm into
paper arts and bookbinding, sustainable architecture and intrest in
gardening and the simple living/back to the land movements, video games (a
guilty pleasure), biking, walking, meditating, cooking (I love to eat!!)
and just socializing with my friends. My favorite books include the Tao
Te Ching (Lao Tzu), Every Step Is Peace (Thich Naht Hanh), The Simple
Living Guide (Janet Luhrs), Gone With the Wind (Margret Mitchell), and
Wide Sargasso Sea (Jean Rhys). My favorite movies include "Thelma and
Louise," "Spirited Away," "To Wong Fu;" generally foreign films are best
though. When I shake my Magic 8 Ball, it responds that my future goals
are hazy and that I should ask again later.
I could devote a whole
paragraph to favorite foods. I'm vegeterian (and very picky about eating
things with partially hydrogenated oils - if I know they are in a food, I
usually won't eat it) so beans are my best friends. Me gusta Mexican
food, I love Thai food and baked goods have a special spot in my heart
(especially the least healthy ones - poundcake, cheesecake, doughnuts).
However, tofu is my wonder food and chocolate chip cookies are my soulmates.
I sadly am without a pet; I really like cats a lot and would love to have
one, but alas that is the price one pays to live in a small apartment
close to campus.
Well, a unique feature about myself. ... I'm currently interested in
outdoor/adventure education, more of the experiential part of learning.
Iin that vein I will be signed up to take a ropes training course at
Ramsey. Ropes courses help with group building and leadership skills by
games and learning initiatives that take place on various ropes setups.
It'll be interesting, that's for sure.
