About Me:

 

Mouse + Keyboard > Pen > Sword 

"I think one of the things that really separates us from the high primates is that we’re tool builders. I read a study that measured the efficiency of locomotion for various species on the planet. The condor used the least energy to move a kilometer. And, humans came in with a rather unimpressive showing, about a third of the way down the list. It was not too proud a showing for the crown of creation. So, that didn’t look so good. But, then somebody at Scientific American had the insight to test the efficiency of locomotion for a man on a bicycle. And, a man on a bicycle, a human on a bicycle, blew the condor away, completely off the top of the charts.

And that’s what a computer is to me. What a computer is to me is it’s the most remarkable tool that we’ve ever come up with, and it’s the equivalent of a bicycle for our minds.” ~ Steve Jobs

As someone who slept their way through high school and parts of college, reading the assigned books was always an issue for me. 

Matter-of-fact, when I first arrived at Shippensburg University, we were supposed to have read a book to discuss in groups during freshman orientation.  When the professor expectedly called on me to answer a question about the book, I politely told him that I hadn't done the reading. Much to my surprise, the world did NOT end, which is why I'm able to tell you about the books that I have personally selected for myself to read since then. 

Here are the books I've read since graduating:

 

If you've read any of these books and would like to discuss them, please contact me!  And if there are any books that I should be reading, I want to hear about them, too! 

I know how it feels to be in pain, desparate, fed up with doctors... and the medical system in general. 

I've been through the ringer, myself.  I had my tonsils removed at age 5.  My appendix at age 25.  And I was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2017.  I've experience back pain that feels like getting stabbed with a knife.  My Lyme disease test results came back with "5 hot bands" when you only need 2 hot bands to be considered Lyme positive.  My Lyme progressed to the point where I had a 102-degree F fever and a case of meningitis (unofficially).  I didn't want to go to the hospital because I knew the only solution would be IV-antibiotics.
