MeMe from Sarah to Sara (or is that Sarah to Sara?)

By
Real Estate Appraiser with Ashcroft & Associates

Sarah Eubanks invited me to write a meme.  She did not ‘know me from Adam' as she put it when she sent me the invitation, but through some correspondence, we found that we had several things in common.  Isn't Active Rain cool?

 

•1)      I have a BFA (Bachelor of Fine Arts) degree majoring in Photography.  I am not artistic with my ‘job shots' by any means, but I've been known to pull the car over and take quite a few shots while ‘on the clock' as well as when I'm out camping, downtown, walking the neighborhoods... etc.  No matter where I am, I always look like a tourist.   I find myself constantly looking through the lens as I go through life and sometimes that makes it hard to be in the moment.

•2)      My last career was in Telecommunications as a Software Implementation Expert for several different companies and so I traveled all over the U.S.  When the dot.coms went downhill I did some soul searching and realized that I wasn't terribly keen on my job and the competition was fierce and so decided to seek other endeavors.

•3)      I am an animal fanatic.  I have three quirky dogs, one amazing cat and three (fishy?) fish.  I used tofamily actively volunteer at the local Humane Society, but have since been a slouch and now am just on the list to foster dogs. 

•4)      My significant other, Dave is a drummer which would seem has nothing to do with me, but he jams at the house two or three nights a week with friends, and so it is part of life.   This town is filled with some incredible musicians.  I go out and see a lot of live music.  I am a fan of many genres but have the musical talents of a brick.

•5)      I have a very simple life.  I love my job.  I love my house.  I love my city.  I love my family.  Pretty simple.

 

I'd like to dedicate the next group of meme's to other Appraisers on Active Rain:

Fantastic meme Sara!!! The picture couldn't be more clever if you tried :) I didn't realize you're a photographer, which is why these are so wonderful to do. I'd love to see some of your photography. Maybe do a photo essay blog for us??

Thanks Jennifer - I'm a tad bashful about the photography aspect.  It's been so long since I was 'pro' but I'll see what I can come up with. ... in the far future :)

Thanks for sharing with us. I too have a degree in Photography. It seems so long ago and far away now.

Good to find another 'rogue photographer' out there, Michael!  It's crazy the majors you can take at institutions - My friend received a PHD majoring in photo collage... but she had to go to Holland for that last two years (what a sacrifice! :-) ) -

Sara ~  Very well done, my friend!  I am so glad to have picked you.  :)  We still need to get together and have coffee.  Any quirky, hole-in-the-wall places you would like to go?  Maybe then I can see a few photos in real life!!  Talk with you soon.  BTW, I have a Canby appraisal which I will probably need help with soon...an AR referral, even.  Give me a call when you get a chance!

Hi Sara~

Sounds good.  Life has slowed down a bit after a family health crisis.  We are in the Lloyd Center area often right now.  Any good places near Emanuel Hospital?  Hope you are doing well!  :)

I got so excited about all the restaurants in your new area that I had to put it in an email :-)

I hope everything is better with the family -

Yeah!  You would be the first to write your Meme of the three.... (appraisers!) if you wrote it - I can't find it... where'd you hide it?
