What are we talking about today?

I'll get back to theme days once I find a groove of posting regularly. In the meantime, most of my posts are about some variation of books, bikes, buses, or Broadway. Plus bits about writing, nonprofits, and grief from time to time.

This blog is mostly lighthearted and pretty silly. It's not about the terrible things happening in the world, but please know that I'm not ignoring those things. I just generally don't write about them here.

About Su

I live in Austin, Texas, where I work for BikeTexas, the statewide advocacy and education organization for cycling. I'm a recovering student: I graduated from the University of Texas in May 2012 with a B.A. in Rhetoric & Writing, and from Texas Tech University in May 2015 with an MA in Technical Communication.

The first show I saw on Broadway. Can't
get over how much I loved this show.
In February 2015, my husband Chadwick suddenly passed away from a pulmonary embolism. I'm doing my best to get used to "widow" being one of my descriptors. We did not have children. It wasn't for lack of trying. (First infertile, then widowed; the universe really has a different idea than I do of what my family should look like.)

I love the theatre and go as often as I can. I especially love to support local theatre, although my one trip to New York to see a couple shows on Broadway was an experience I'll treasure forever. As a result, I listen to a lot of showtunes. And write about whatever thing I last saw.

I haven't lived in a lot of places, but enough to make me slightly loopy: I started off life in Greenfield, Indiana, moved to Glasgow, Scotland, from there to Lubbock, Texas (where Chadwick & I met and married), and as of July 2010, Austin, Texas. Up next: probably back to the Midwest. Stay tuned.

I have a few hobbies outside of blogging and complaining: I read, run, bicycle, sew, crochet, cook, and I'm working on knitting. It's bound to give in sooner or later. I also write, with the idea that some day someone will want to pay me to print something that I've written. In the meantime: I practise. Also, I tweet incessantly a bit.

What you can't see in the picture are all the ants that made their way into our trousers while we smiled at the camera.
