I am a 24-year-old female from Michigan, currently living near Memphis, TN, and working in the web department of a nonprofit conservation organization. I am using this blog as a means of figuring out who I am and exposing that reality to the world. The meaning behind this blog’s title is fourfold: 1) Autumne is my middle name; 2) I am reflecting on life and my own identity; 3) Reflection implies water, which is my favorite element and natural setting; and 4) Autumn is, without a doubt, my favorite season, filled with peace, warm sweaters, apple cider, crunchy leaves, flushed cheeks, cuddling under wool blankets and watching spectacular harvest sunsets.
The major elements of my life are: friends/family, work (see Ed. & Emp. section), exercise/nutrition, learning, volunteering and faith. My evenings and weekends usually consist of reading, spending time with the dogs and cats at the Memphis Humane Society, hanging out with a friend or two, trying out a new church and going to the gym. I also tend to take my work home with me. After quitting the second job I’d been working for more than a year, I just haven’t been able to break the habit. Years of poor nutrition and no physical activity whatsoever have wreaked havoc on my body, so I am in the midst of an effort to restore some element of health and wellness. I spend about 2 hours at the gym 4-6 days a week and try to make healthy eating choices. And after years of neglecting my faith and my relationship with God, I am re-embarking on the spiritual journey that I started 8 years ago in youth group. I am on the lookout for a solid church family with whom I will mesh well.
