Latest News

June 8, 2006

College: I made it through my first year!  Now I'm back home until fall.  This summer I'm working on all the Freshmen Orientations at my college - giving tours of the campus to all the new paralegal and criminal justice majors (part of my duties as the Secretary of the Student Senate).

Kayaking: (I really need to update that page!)  I went out for an evening paddle a couple of days ago and got to watch a bald eagle catch a large fish out on the lake, then I follow him and saw where he landed in a big pine tree, where he ate his dinner.  My friend and I floated right below him for about 20 minutes - what an awesome sight!

Medical: Currently everything is fine.  My eye exam last month had promising results - my next eye exam isn't until fall.

Website: I posted Chapter 6 of my Oblivion Journal this morning and just updated my MODs Page as well.  A few weeks ago I started the game over again from the beginning - this time with a bunch of mods that have fixed most of the issues that I had with the released version of Oblivion.  My journal is both a fantasy story and sort of a role-playing guide to the game.

Site Information

Home - (this page) My home page, and my Website's main page. This is my site's  intro and informational page, and the rest of my site branches out from here. Also found on this page:

News - This is my little news column, where I have the latest site and personal news posted.                    
(Older news is posted on my
News Archive Page).

Links -
This is where I have links posted to some of my favorite sites.

Oblivion Journal - updated 6/08/06 - This is the sequel to my Morrowind Journal, so it will follow the adventures of my same little blue-eyed Wood Elf character . . . yes, the one  with the wild pinkish-purple hair (based on my little avatar elf).   This time the story takes place in Cyrodiil, which is the capital province of Tamriel.  Even though this is obviously a fantasy story, it will be built upon my actual game play. So I don't really know how this adventure will turn out, any more than the rest of you.

Morrowind Journal - (Morrowind is a PC role-playing game) My journal is called "Trials of a Clueless Wood Elf". It is based on my experiences in playing my first RPG. There are 39 chapters, plus a tip page and a MOD page.  updated 6/08/06 - New format now complete through Chapter 28.

My Avatar - My little elf avatar, with her pink candy-flossed hair, has become so popular that she has her own fan page.

White Mountains - About New Hampshire's White Mountains (where I live), including some of my favorite hikes.

Girl Gamer - A bit about being a girl gamer and some of my favorite games (besides Morrowind)

Bio Pages - More about me and my life - updated 02/22/04 - added Arwen's Bio - Page 3

Forums - My Message Board has been online since April 25, 2004 - It's an extension of this website. The main focus is Morrowind, but there an Oblivion (Elder Scrolls IV) forum, a General forum, and a Member's only forum. There's also a small section on my Bio Pages. There's even a chat room.

 

FAQ (about me and my Website)

When I first started writing my Morrowind Journal, I began to get a lot of email, from all over the world. Many people just wanted to let me know that they loved reading my journal. But I also received plenty of questions, mostly about the game (see my Morrowind Journal), but many people wanted to know more about me. Here are the questions I have been asked the most:

Where do you live? I live in a small town in Northern New Hampshire, which is a small state in the Northeastern corner of the United States. (see my White Mountains page for more).

Why did you start a personal Website? Because I'm a creative person, and one day I just decided to learn how to make my own Website. You still won't find a single photo of me here, because this was never intended to be a personal vanity page.

How old are you? (Goodness, I get this one a bunch!) I'm older than most people guess. Ok, so that means that I must not act my age. But that's not entirely true, because I do act my age, I just don't act my biological age. Due to something that happened to me when I was very little (which is not even covered in my Bio Pages), my perceived age is quite a bit younger than my chronological age. (I know ... I still didn't actually answer the question.)

What do you do besides writing your journals and running this website and your forums?  Goodness, I do all sorts of stuff - I've had a lot of medical problems and several major operations in the last few years, but I'm physically very fit.  I cross county ski and snowshoe in the winter, and do a great deal of kayaking in the warmer months (mid April through early November).  I also love to hike.  I'm a full time college student - a paralegal major and the secretary of my college's Student Senate.  So I keep pretty busy.  Oh . . . I'm also writing a book.
