Hi and welcome to my little corner of the interwebs! Let me introduce myself. My name is Engineer L, and I am currently an engineering graduate student at a top research university in the U.S. I grew up in the Midwest but moved to a warmer climate a few years ago for school. I love that it hardly snows in the winter here but miss being able to wear my fabulous coats!
I am one of the few women in my program since my field is so male-dominated. That can be tough at times, so I'll probably complain about it here now and again. In my spare time, I enjoy shopping (especially at J.Crew), much to the detriment of my wallet and grad student shoestring budget. Also, I recently got engaged to my college sweetheart, Engineer W.
After being a long-time lurker on blogs like J.Crew Aficionada and Franish's Budgeting Bloggers series, I thought it would be fun to try blogging. I have a lot to learn, so please bear with me while I get the hang of things. Thanks for stopping by!
