Unlike my LIS 506 myworks page, which gives you information about the exercises and assignments I have completed in LIS 506 thus far, this page gives you a little more insight into myself and my interest.
To begin, allow me to introduce myself. I have recorded a personal greeting here:
While I currently reside on Long Island, NY, I was born in San Francisco, CA and lived there until I was 16. Since leaving I have lived in New York, Iceland, Australia, San Francisco (again), and now New York (again). But no matter how long I am away, or where I reside, I always identify as a Californian.
People are surprised, when they learn I am from California, that I have never surfed. San Francisco is foggy and cold, and I never had the desire to try surfing or even swimming in the icy waters of the Pacific Ocean.
My boyfriend, however, is an avid surfer and can be found in the Atlantic Ocean well into the winter months, leaving me on the shore to worry about sharks. The events at the J-Bay Surf Competition in South Africa this past summer only served to heighten this worry. Watch the video!
(warning: this video contains adult language)
I prefer to spend my beach time under the shade of an umbrella with a good book.
