Hi! I’m Kalin. This is my blog. Writing about yourself is awkward. But here we go…
I once had someone tell me when they first met me they thought “what is she on? And where can I get some?”. I’d guess that sums me up?
I started this blog because I was unemployed and bored.
These days, I’m fUNemployed. Maybe?
I moved to Portland from Eastern Washington (aka surreal america) four years ago to get my masters degree (and also to avoid being one of those people who stays in their hometown forevahhh). My Baby Brother still lives there and posts on here from time to time.
I’m a substitute teacher because Portland’s job market is AWESOME. I love teaching. I also love not having to go to work when I don’t feel like it, so this subbing thing works out well. I also work in a church.
I started running last year. I did my first half marathon on the 4th of July. I’m not fast, but I currently have 8 toenails so I look legit I think.
I got married last summer. So if you’re stalking through old posts you’ll see mentions of that. My husband was actually one of my roommates when I first moved here. If you ask him how we met he says “Craigslist”. Thanks honey. My husband has a job. Given my semi-employment, this makes me a housewife. Dreams come true friends, dreams come true.
(I mean that in a totally serious way. Getting to play with my cats, read, garden, drink excessive amounts of coffee, and bake all day? It’s awesome)
This is my life!
