My name is Nerd Girl and I’m a Libra. I can’t believe people used to introduce themselves like that. Anyhoo…
I am a 37 year old wife and mother – one count each. I’ve got three younger brothers, 3 nieces, 1 nephew, a niece/nephew on the way, and two wonderfully nutty parents who’ve been married for 39 years (I think).
California born and bred, Arkansas educated, Mississippi’s been home for the last 11 years.
I met my hubby (aka Smoochy) in our college pharmacology class way back in 1993 when I was a mere lass of 21. We dated for a long arse time and finally tied the knot in May, 1999. We enjoyed life as a married couple for a long arse time and finally had our first and only kiddo (aka Lovegirl) in September 2004.
I wrangle 3rd year medical students for a living and have a nasty habit of going back to school when I get bored. I just finished my 2nd master’s degree and am thinking about getting another one (MBA?) or biting the bullet and finding a PhD program somewhere to enroll in.
I’m a stan for Prince, find most old music quite delightful, and am thinking about learning how to dougie so that I can teach Lovegirl.
I stopped perming my hair when the kiddo was about 8 months old, locked it up maybe a year later and have loved nearly every moment of not having a head full of chemicals. I am not, however, a natural hair nazi and there are times when I consider – ever so briefly – cutting my locs and straightening my ‘do.
I love to read, travel, and sleep. Not necessarily in that order. I love to laugh – if you can make me laugh, we’ll probably be cool for life.
I’m generally pretty laid back, but will act a fool over my sweet/sassy baby girl.
And I go to bed earlier than any grown woman should admit. Speaking of which…good night!
