About Kari

I live in the Capital Region of NY, work for NYS, and am just beginning to blog. I was recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, so that's going to take up some content. I've been writing for as long as I can remember, and I am an opinionated person. Thus there will be some items that burn me up, that I simply want to play devil's advocate, or daily/personal items. I also Tweet (@Marilyth) when the mood strikes me in 140 characters or less. I'm doing this for fun, and I hope other appreciate the information and contribute!

Researching for November

I participated in the Gay Pride event this past weekend and enjoyed marching for a cause that I believe in. I even supported my first ever candidate openly in public. I don’t usually participate actively in politics, as it is … Continue reading
