But I love this area. I love that it rains in the summer time more than one eighth of an inch per rainstorm. I love that the grass is actually green almost year round. I love that I can grow my own corn and tomatoes in something that isn't sand. And I especially love old barns, empty corn fields, forests, and rivers with running water. I still miss authentic Mexican food, though.
The pertinent stuff:
I graduated from New Mexico State University in 2007 with a degree in Journalism (bad timing, yes, I know). I worked there as a freelance photographer for a small, weekly paper and as a radio reporter for our town's NPR affiliate station. I enjoyed both my jobs to the umpteenth degree but, as sometimes happens, life threw a curveball at us and the Husband got a job transfer to Peoria. Now I work a computer job by day and take photos as a creative outlet. It's not a bad tradeoff, really.
