Check out this list of Ten Gadgets That Defined The Decade from Engadget:
My opinions...

  • My Number One: Apple iPod
    • It changed the way we use music, end of story. While other mp3 options preceded it, Apple succeeded in making it mainstream, desirable, and the user-friendliness of iTunes made the iPod irreplacable.
  • Most Suprising: Motorola RAZR v3
    • I just never would have thought of a phone. But then I think back to 1998 (an age at which I admit to being too young to have owned a cell phone) and IF someone had a cell phone they were in the minority. The RAZR really did revoluntionize widespread access to a cellular device. And I owned one for a while - and loved it.
  • Not Top Ten Material: ASUS Eee PC 900
    • Okay, I confess that I might just want to kick this one of the list because I am not a netbook fan. I'd like to replace this entire fad with more lightweight, regular-size laptops. End of story.
  • My Addition: WiFi
    • Talk about revolutionary... WiFi made it so we were no longer stationary, we had internet in many locations and on the go. It is what grants social media, online networking, and everything internet so much of its power.
Now what I really want to know is ... What do you think?

What are my hopes for this blog?
I'm hoping right now for this blog to be a discussion of the things that interest me. I also hope that in time it will transform itself into a more focused and topical blog. So right now it will probably be pretty much what the info at the top of the page says ... theatre, crafts, my church, life, and what it is like to be a young professional.

The usual scoop?
I grew up in Pittsburgh, PA (and am still a devout Steelers fan). After moving to Columbus, OH in middle school, it really is the place that I call home. I am a recent graduate of Wittenberg Univeristy (Springfield, OH) with a major in Communication and a minor in Theatre. College to me was Delta Gamma, Young Life, Community Service, and some studying on the side. I spent a semester studying abroad in Salzburg, Austria and traveling Europe. I am 23 years old with three younger brothers and a bad case of oldest child syndrome. I have a great set of parents in Columbus and love to sneak away to visit them as much as possible.

And these days?
I am now living in Springfield, OH (a small city with a lot of potential), which is where I attended school. The usual suspects in my life are all things that I really enjoy ... my job (http://www.theohiogroup.com/), my boyfriend, crafting and spending time with my fabulous housemates, and soma community church (http://www.discoversoma.org/). I'm a pretty happy girl.
