I’m trying to be all healthy and active and whatnot

I Read A Lot of Internets

Around the kdiddy in 80 words or more

Me and the husband roller skating in Detroit. Like ya do.

Hello. I’m kdiddy and you’ve reached kdiddy.org. Prior to being at this location, I kept a LiveJournal for over five years. Pretty much anything you need to know about me can be found there.

As for my vital stats, I can tell you that I’m 31. I’ve been married a little over four years to The Husband, who was officially The Boyfriend for about six years prior to that. We have a 8-year-old son. I rarely, if ever, use their names out of respect for their privacy (or what’s left of it after 8 years of blogging), but I trust that you can figure out that the recurring characters referred to as “the husband” and “the baby” are those fine gentlemen.

I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 2003 with a degree in writing, so there’s my credentials. I completed my MA in Professional Writing at Carnegie Mellon University in December 2009. I worked on that bad boy for 3.5 years, slowly chipping away at it part-time while working full-time. I’m proud of that accomplishment, but it was extremely stressful and therefore not a course of action that I would recommend.

I’m still adjusting to life without graduate school hanging over my head. I still don’t feel that I’ve totally relaxed and the economy and our accumulated student debt keeps me awake at night sometimes. I surely devote too much time to writing for my own pleasure, but it’s really my sanctuary. I’m not a woman of many talents, but somehow words have always worked for me.

In addition to this little corner of the internet, you can also find me over at MamaPop.com, where I write pop culture nuggets, and at We Covet, where I hold up shiny baubles.

If you need to reach me, please send email to kdiddy.org at gmail.com.
