Hi all! I’m Lindsey, [currently solo] mom to two little kindred spirits. I’m currently working at home as a writer and am exploring many different avenues of income. Join me in my quest to live simply, frugally, and pursue my goal to successfully make a full-time income from home!
The part where I share more than you probably wanted to know.
Half of my growing-up years I spent in Alaska, and the other half in Alabama. Yeah, the two are polar opposites. I like to think this experience of living in two extremely different climates/social atmospheres built character in me and made me at least appear well-traveled. (Ha!)
I moved to Oregon as soon as I turned 19, hoping to eventually make it back to Alaska – but I never made it. I proceeded to 1) Get a job as a part-time bookkeeper’s assistant, 2) Quit that job because it was booooring and take medical transcription from a local college, and 3) Work as a medical transcriptionist/editor for a large hospital. Yeah, by the time I got out of college, typing out reports was already becoming obsolete thanks to voice recognition software. Yay.
I was homeschooled most of my school years and loved it – I actually didn’t want it to end when I graduated. My passion for homeschooling my own two comes naturally after being taught at home by my amazing mom. I enjoy teaching even more than I imagined I would!
What am I really like – in person? I can be mistakenly thought shy, but my personality comes out when I know someone well. It’s probably kind of scary. I consider myself an introvert, only because I need recharge time when I’m around a lot of people. I prefer quiet walks in the woods to parties. Correction: I run screaming from anything resembling a party invitation. I can be rather scatterbrained, but I prefer to see that as part of my charm.
