Geologist, Geography Blogger, Adventurer, Texan.
Introduction
For anyone wanting to add me to a circle, heres an idea of what I post about.

Geology/Geography:  This is going to be primarily what my posts involve.  I'm a geology graduate student, planning on teaching at the college level some day.  I also blog about geomorphological and geographical changes on the Earth's surface.

Texas:  I'm a born and raised Houstonian.  I love my state and my city and the Texas culture in general.  I'll post numerous Texan things.

The Outdoors:  I love nature and spending time outside.  Hiking and kayaking are some of my favorite hobbies, so you may see some posts about these things.

Comics:  I'm an avid reader of Calvin and Hobbes, Mutts, Questionable Content, Zen Pencils, Girls With Slingshots, Nothing Better, All New Issues, and some others.  I might share some comics here and there.

Music:  Occasionally, because I know music tastes are varied among even people with similar interests and there's a good chance we won't like the same thing.  I do love music though, and sometimes I can't help expressing that.


As far as other things, I've got some strong views on both politics and religion but I try to refrain from posting too much on these things.  There are some books I read and I may bring them up from time to time.  Sometimes I'll post some photos I've taken.  
Bragging rights
Went through the 48 conterminous states in one 16-day-long road trip. Taught a paralyzed wiener dog to walk again. Older brother to 4 awesome siblings. I kayak with alligators.

7 Full albums later and Blue October still makes fantastic music!  This is easily in my top 5 out of the ~100 unique songs they've created.

+Charles Carrigan,  Are you still a fan of theirs?  You'd probably like this one.

Are mountain glaciers of sufficient age to have trapped any significant quantity of meteorites like those found in Antarctica?

This song sounds great on piano!  If you haven't seen Frozen yet, I recommend it.  Disney did a good job with this one.

Banda Aceh (hardest hit area of the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami, and closest city to the earthquake epicenter) in gif format showing images from: before the tsunami, just after the tsunami, and 4 years after the tsunami.  The coastline there is almost completely altered but they appear to have rebuilt pretty well for such a large scale disaster (almost 70% of the death toll was centered around this town).
