Welcome! I am here to write about my life’s journey, and I have a long history of blogging online. I started my first semi-daily blog in 1999, and the updates became much more frequent in 2001; I have been updating somewhat regularly ever since. I purchased my own domain, grrlstar.net, in 2002 with the intent to have my say in the world.
A little bit about my professional life: After employment as a waitress, cabinetmaker, and a brief time in fashion sales, I received my Bachelors of Arts in Digital Media: Graphic Design from the University of Central Florida in 2007; I picked up minors in both Film and Fine Arts. Upon graduation, I applied for a commission in the United States Air Force. I served almost eight years as a flight officer & senior crew member on a multi-engine military jet aircraft. Today I am pursuing my Masters of Science in Counseling to help those who seek it. In other words, you see I am a jack of all trades, looking to try as many things in life as possible.
I love live music and play the piano, I like to volunteer with elderly folks, enjoy art, cosmetology, and fashion. I am also into cosplay, video games, and the fantasy genre in general.
The internet has certainly changed, from a publishing perspective. Gone are the days of slaving over cgi code and debugging journal scripts to host your content online. Social Media has made it easy, perhaps too easy, to have a home online, with the positives & negatives that accompany the thought. Anyway, enjoy the peek into my past online, now over 16 years strong.
