I Have An Unreasonable Love of Cactuses and Ahsoka Tano

And other important things to know about me.

Hello, reader! My name is Gillian Annie, in case you didn’t know. I’m gonna talk a little about myself! The topic of myself is always confusing to me. Who am I? Well, I think I’m a lot of things to a lot of different people. I’m a teacher, a sister, a daughter, a dog-mom, a former Army person, a kind-of writer, a student…the list goes on. What Do I Do For A Living?

This question is also difficult to answer. I am a medically retired Army first lieutenant, which is my main source of income. I usually tell people I retired because of a knee injury, but the majority of my disability paycheck comes from my mental health. I currently work as a special education assistant at an elementary school in my home town.

Who Do I Want To Be?

My main goal in life is to be happy. To accomplish this, I’m hoping continuing my studies in Russian and becoming a Russian professor or else a super-cool government agent will do the trick. I also want to be a permanent dog-mom because let’s face it, they are the best animals on this Earth.

My Accomplishments

I saved this for last because…well because I feel like I’ve accomplished very little 😅 But my mom is very proud of me, so I figured I’d give this a shot too! I am pleased to say that I am a West Point graduate. For those of you who don’t know, that’s the United States Military Academy. For two years I was brainwashed to believe this was not an accomplishment by my ex, so it’s kind of weird for me to say those words. I am also fluent in Russian, which I think is pretty darn cool. I have successfully raised the world’s most amazing puppy, aka my dog Reese. I got accepted to Duke’s graduate program 😮. I’m alive ❤
