This fall, My Alaskan Odyssey turned five years old. In the last half-decade, I’ve moved to and from Alaska (twice), finished a master’s degree, gotten married, celebrated some victories and mourned a few losses. This blog started as a way to keep friends and family up-to-date when I moved to Alaska for grad school in 2012. I posted sporadically for a few years, and then, when I got serious about writing, I started posting something every week. Since its inception, My Alaskan Odyssey has been a place to post silly lists and longer musings and, occasionally, share good (and bad) news. I still can’t believe anyone other than my mom reads it.
In the spirit of celebration, here are five posts from the archives.
My very first post, August 2012

It’s hard out here for a plant, March 2014

Thanks for reading and sharing and following, and for your kind comments and messages. I’m looking forward to celebrating another five years.
