I started class last night.  I'm an adjunct to a local university's Environmental Engineering department.  Eight years of teaching graduate studies.

I have mixed feelings about this thread, because sharing stuff about myself freaks me out for a variety of reasons.  I could talk more in the other place, if folks wanted.

You do you, boo-boo. What matters most is comfort level.

To take the attention off you, I'll put it on myself (where it belongs).  I have pet an octopus. A real live one. Doing it's octopus thing. That's the moment it became my favorite animal.

Yea, I really miss my time studying zoology. It led me to so many amazing moments. Like being within touching distance of a (timber, I think) wolf and a cheetah while volunteering at the San Diego Zoo and befriending an otter and some meerkats there too.

Next year I will celebrate 20 years of environmental work in PA.
