There aren't really any rules, although they give topics for each day. These are going to be short because I'm going to try to concentrate on finishing some work, and I'm also going to be visiting everyone in the A to Z Challenge throughout the year. I also have a couple of awards to except in the next couple of days.
Anyway, today's topic is to share my life story in 250 words or less. Here goes!
I was born and raised in Southern California, but we lived in six different places. I've lived everywhere from a farm to a big city. I originally thought I was horrible at math, but it turned out that I never had any good math teachers.
I finally learned to teach myself, and ended up going to UC San Diego (not to be confused with San Diego State, which is a party school -- UCSD is the opposite of a party school) to study Aerospace Engineering, then Computer Engineering. Computer Engineering is half software, and half electrical engineering.
After college, I worked at the San Diego Supercomputer Center for awhile, then got a job in a basement creating some of the first auto-spamming software. I didn't realize that was what I was doing at the time, and didn't feel good about it when I realized what I was doing.
I then went on to save a company from destruction when the three people who new how to do all of the computer-related work left the company. After all that, I got bored with IT, software, and web development, and decided to become a writer. I now write articles for a living.
I have a dog, and have rescued seven cats. My joys in life are playing with them, and spending time with my parents and brother whenever I get the chance.
Whew! That's my life!
