Hi, I’m Maureen.
When I was a little girl, I wanted to be a writer. But somewhere along the way I became a scientist instead. I created this blog in hopes to get some of my creative writing energies out. I am an inquisitive person who likes to learn and explore, particularly anything that has to do with the earth sciences. Right now I work with soil but I am also very much interested in geology, geography, and climate.
My interests do extend beyond the realm of science. While my sister is definitely the artist in the family, I sometimes fancy myself a crafty person. I enjoy scrapbooking, decorating, making posters and presentations, jewelry making, and any other arts & crafts projects that may come my way. I also like exploring the outdoors and swimming and experimenting with new recipes and playing with puppies.
One of my favorite things to do is travel, and perhaps one day this blog will actually chronicle my world travels as the title suggests. But for now I spend a lot of time traveling around the state of New Mexico, hiking in forests and learning many new things about the world around me.
