I adore my city, Omaha. I adore my state, Nebraska. I’ll take a trip to Carhenge over a trip to Stonehenge any day. (For real. I’ve been to both and Carhenge is more impressive.) I grew up on the east coast and moved to Nebraska when I was in elementary school, settling down in Omaha after college. I was educated in private schools but have worked in public schools for my whole career. People often assume I’m a vegetarian but I adore a good Midwestern steak. I’m a goody-two-shoes but I defy all parking laws. I play in a band but don’t party like a rock star. I’m a people person who has a hard time talking to people, and a numbers nerd who majored in English. My whole life has been a study in contrasts, so this project is one more.
At this point I am remaining anonymous on Juxtapose Omaha. When I read blogs, I always like to know that the blogger is a “real person.” However, I am a bit nervous about how some of my posts will be perceived and how that might affect my job if my school district were to look into them. For now I will choose not to share identifying details with the public. We’ll see how it goes.
