Chemical Engineering & Alaska

After 5 years of a studying coma, also known to a few as chemical engineering, my brain seems to be revolting against me and any coherent thought processes.

Below are examples of decisions made in this state of mind:

Moving to Alaska – Obviously this is still up for debate since I’ve yet to officially move- I’ll provide an update after my first winter. The 50*F Florida winters do not qualify.

Road tripping to Alaska with cats. Let me emphasize the “with cats” portion of this decision. For those that don’t know I have an unhealthy relationship with my two cats (please see below)  Sauce (left), Sparrow (center), crazy cat lady (right)
For those that own cats, I need not say anymore, and you can move forward to reading about my third questionable decision below. For those that don’t own cats, imagine travelling with 2 vomiting, nocturnal, meowing, shedding creatures that rub their butts on you. I should mention that just today Sparrow peed on our dirty clothing (even though she has a perfectly clean litter box nearby) and regurgitated a leaf that she ate 5 minutes before. My boyfriend, JB (there we are below), who is also joining me on this trip, recommends setting the cats free in a nearby forest. DSC_0742 (2)

Purchasing a Craigslist van – It is quite possible that I would have had better luck in finding my soul mate via Craigslist’s “personal missed connections” option than finding a decent camper van in my price range. I, knowing nothing about vans, relied heavily on JB, to find a mechanically sound van, that with *fingers crossed* would make it to Alaska. I’m incredibly grateful that this boy can fix anything with some zip ties and a drill.

In summary, I’m now moving to Alaska via a Craigslist camper van, with cats, all because of chemical engineering.

But unlike my first road trip, I will blog (or attempt to) about this trip to satiate my 3 friends that will be reading this – wish y’all were coming along for the ride!
