I'm a professional astronomer supported as best I can by research grants and the single parent of a bright, vivacious, sweet preschooler. Life is a little too full but I try hard to make it all fit. Given such a life, I'm forever searching for small apartments when I travel for business so that if it the trip is ~1 week, then I can bring her with me and care for her with babysitter help. If the trip is shorter, then I want an inexpensive place to get in and out of my business travel quickly.
If you ask me where I'm from, you'll likely get either a tongue-tied response or a very long story. I'm from a little bit of everywhere. A home-full person, as it were.
