Many jobs have a "busy season," whether it's final exams for students, winter holidays for retailers, or tax season for accountants. Mine is field season set-up in May.
I spend October - March each year holed up inside my mid-Michigan home, safely sheltered from the clouds outside. Only a constant intake of tea and my happy lamp keep me sane while I tackle a year's worth of reading, writing, studying, and data analysis... waiting for April.
Because everyone knows April means Opening Day!
Of field season!
I don't always take selfies in the field.
But when I do, you'd better believe they're destined for this blog.
