Articles Going Forward from @kleffnotes

If you keep an eye on The Nerdy Girl Express you might have noticed I have been sort of quiet recently. That isn’t to say that I haven’t wanted to write, but really that I have just been too busy to get any projects done. I used to try and get an article up every day and that happened for a long time. I then focused on getting things up about two to three times a week, but I have run into a scheduled that has led me to need to focus on getting things done just when I can.

Harley the Dog Updates and A Bit of a Holiday from @kleffnotes

Since I’m pretty sure everyone loves dogs and especially rescue dogs, I thought I would give y’all an update on Harley, the most recent addition to our family. If you haven’t seen the first article I did, you can give it a read, but as a quick recap Krista and I rescued a dog from a kill shelter in North Carolina and her name is Harley. She has been adjusting to her new life and I thought I’d share some of the strides she has made.

Well Now I Need to Research Even More Dog Things from @kleffnotes

Today I reveal that the road trip I mentioned on Friday has already happened. This past weekend Krista and I drove, she literally did all of the driving so I was just along for the ride, to Pennsylvania. Now we had sort of vaguely planned this trip before. Krista went to law school in Carlisle and she wanted to show me the sights, but as it turned out this trip involved something a little extra.

Going on a Road Trip, Any Suggestions? from @kleffnotes

Krista and I are planning a road trip for the not to distant future and I thought I would share some of the things we always pack on long drives. I also wanted to give folks a chance to share things that they think are a must have for a trip. You can think for either a road trip or any sort of multi-hour trip so if you have thoughts share away in the comments.

Who Am I? A Personal Article on Identity from @freegolaw

My name is Krista and I am a 37-year old woman who recently came out publicly as being gay. I am devoted to my Rottweilers, my family and my friends. I root for the underdog. I over think everything and I sing and dance without the aid of alcohol.  I cry during movies and shows, that I find poignant. I honestly believe that if I move my body in a certain direction while I am playing video games that my character in the game will move faster and better (as such, I am terrible at video games). I have a nonexistent sense of direction. I pride myself on being able to help others acclimate to new situations and experiences more quickly than I could when I was in their position. I find my escape through good stories: books, movies, tv shows and web series. As you will soon find out, rambling is one of my favorite art forms. I love to write. I am in awe of the power of great writing and how words on a page can evoke real emotions. My first true dream was to write something meaningful; something that would touch or inspire someone else.
