Hello!

Okay, I am overcoming mass amounts of grant writing and grading to get this thing going.

My name is Laurie, I am closing in on 30 and I live in Florida with my boyfriend and our two cats. We enjoy the living in sin and the cats enjoy Fancy Feast brand tuna feast in gravy. I am in graduate school for anthropology and last semester I took my qualifying exams so I am now all but dissertation (ABD). Within anthropology, my subfield is biological anthropology, and within biological anthropology, my research interests are in primate behavior. This semester I am concentrating on getting grants to fund my dissertation research, and teaching an intro biology class at a community college.

Although I am stuck in the southeast for now, I grew up in the midwest and attended college there so after nearly four years in Florida I am missing seasons like crazy.

I am interested in many things and will hopefully write about them here. I also like to have opinions on many things and will share those as well. I was inspired to start this blog by the many college teaching centered blogs I have recently found on the internets and I hope to contribute some to those sort of topics.

OK, quick intro for you, more fun to come!!!

Hi Laurie! Nice to see your new digs.

Are you deliberately not publishing a RSS feed? I do most of my blog reading through Bloglines.

Oops! I thought I clicked to publish an RSS feed, but I must have missed. It should be fixed now.
