This is was so much fun to read through! Thanks for sharing
I've been in love with water since... I don't know, always. It doesn't matter what's going on in life, everything seems to settle down and become a bit more manageable when I can see water, smell it, put my feet in it.
Then I went to college to get my BS with a concentration in oceanography and estuarine science, took an introductory geology course my first year there and fell in love with rocks too.
And since I'm really, really lousy at coming with names and whatnot, I just went with something easy. Slightly corny? Maybe. But it suits me.
