I'm just an average person living an average life. I eat, drink, work, sleep, repeat. What you will find here are the things that remind me that life is not always so average.

I live in a suburb of Washington, DC. I am a systems administrator/network engineer/whatever-they-want-me-to-be for a large government contracting company. I get to work in the city which is fantastic.

I love any kind of EDM as well as most rock, some pop and hiphop and r&b; (the latter three are a recent development thanks to XM Radio). I attend Northern Virginia Community College, usually one credit at a time. Otherwise I'd never sleep. I try to go out to Cubik every so often but again with the sleep.

I have a husband (Paul), a dog (Bonita), local family (Mom, Mama y Papa), and lots of distant family (some in Dallas, some in California, most in Spain). My husband and I are looking to move to Spain (moving BACK for him) come Summer/Fall of 2006.

Maybe I'm not so average after all...

Work in Progress

(viewed 423 times)
I ordered various parts to finally build myself a computer. I've been
dealing with my POS Dell for 3 or 4 years. I hooked myself up with a
nice AMD Athlon XP 2700. The case I got has lights and shit. :P I
ordered a blue 500 watt power supply to match and I was excited to see
that my mobo is blue, too. The RAM came in RED. :) Anyhow, at this point
I've just got the power supply, mobo and cpu mounted with the lights
plugged in. On Saturday I'll be installing the video card, hard drive
and cd-rw. For the first time I'll be without a floppy! It's okay, I've
got 5 usb ports plus another two that came on a card with the mobo. :)
