I’m an Aries. I am ISTJ in the Meyers-Brigg world. When I take “personality/work style” type of tests, the results define me as dominant, or leader, or peacock (versus the adjectives that describe quieter, thinker-type people). I’m a first-time grandmother to a darling little girl. I’ve been working in the A/E/C since 1980 (currently with my third employer since then). A member of the Society for Design Administration (SDA) since 1983. Avid Stephen King reader (I’m sure I have every one of his books, and some in both hard and paperback). I am a person who still enjoys sending personal, handwritten notes to people, via snail mail.
I take photos. Nope, I haven’t gotten into all the technical aspects of taking a photo, like the “real” photographers do. Just pointing, shooting, viewing, printing and sharing works well for me. My first camera was a Kodak Instamatic 10. Have graduated to the Canon Rebel, ever since Mick bought me one for Christmas in 2003. And of course, my iPhone takes pretty good pics too. See My Photos tab for the link to my Flickr site, and some on my Pinterest board.
Why “Confessions of an Admin Junkie”? Well, it’s a title that has been on my mind for quite some time, and I couldn’t decide, when/if I finally finished writing it, if I wanted to offer it to SDA as an article or white paper. So it sat (a couple of paragraphs and random buzz words taking the place of an outline) on my computer, waiting for me to do something with it. Then I finally discovered WordPress, and voila! A blog . . . to share with others.
I also blog on a personal level (having lost two sisters). And I fell in love with making necklaces, earrings, and bracelets.
