About me:
My partner and I are originally from Ohio. We moved to Miami, FL a year ago so I could take a position as a federal law clerk. My term will be over in another year's time and we're still undecided about where we'll go next. We're experiencing the ups and many downs of living in a new city without the support of any family and no nearby friends. It's hard whenever you move somewhere new, but Miami in particular is difficult because of the extreme language and culture barriers and the fact that our solidly midwestern values do not mesh with most Miamian's need for bling, luxe, labels, what-have-you.
My interests:
quilting, sewing, crafting, cooking
How I de-stress:
see hobbies and interests
Adjective to describe me:
Focused
My favorite book:
Grapes of Wrath

  • Hi Dana. I'm a moderator here at Work it, Mom! Just stopped by to say "hey" - we're glad you're here. :) I really liked what you had to say in your profile notes. I so agree it's isolating to be an area that doesn't quite "fit" and so far from home. I'm in Tallahassee, FL, in the panhandle and it's definitely not home for me either.
