My name is Arielle, but most people call me Toast or Toasty. I grew up in Killeen, Texas and moved to Houston after graduating from Baylor University with a Bachelor’s degree in Forensic Science. I currently work as a Chemist and, while it isn’t my dream job, I enjoy it and I feel like I’m getting good experience. I am married with two dogs. Is there really much more to my backstory? Am I that boring? I’ve been a nerd my whole life. I guess that’s all you really need to know.
I have so many hobbies I can’t even keep all of them in my head at once, but I’ll try to list them. These are things I will probably blog about. These are in no particular order, but I’m into:
Books, books, books!
Apple products (I’m hooked on Mac)
Video Games (Animal Crossing, Pokemon, Guild Wars 2, and Tetris are some of the more notable games currently)
Welcome to Night Vale (I just recently got into podcasts with WTNV and I am also now obsessed fun, educational podcasts!)
Electronic Dance Music
Cooking and Baking (I am attempting to cook healthier, I really am)
Cycling for exercise (when I’m not melting in the Texas heat)
International Geek Girl Pen Pals Club (#IGGPPC)
Off-Roading in my Jeep
A few TV shows I like, to give you a taste: My Little Pony, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Downton Abbey, Breaking Bad, Attack on Titan, Orange is the New Black, Adventure Time, Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra
Board and Tabletop Gaming
I have a huge interest in Japan and Japanese culture. I will hopefully get to go there someday soon and I’m learning Japanese as well.
