Hiiii My name is Gill (that's Jill, only spelled with a "G"). Well Gillian really, but s’all the same! I used to live in New Orleans, but now I live in The-Middle-of-Nowhere, NJ. I graduated in May with my Bachelors in Environmental Science, and I am currently serving as an AmeriCorps volunteer focused on improving watershed health. I'm looking forward to a new adventure once my program ends in July!


Ask me ANYTHING. Really.


For a girl that grew up on Long Island, has been living in NJ for 7 months, and really enjoys being around trees, you’d think I’d have seen a tick before.

LolNOPE.

Today was a first time, and I thoroughly freaked out.

He was just hanging out on my passenger seat, probably since Monday when I had organized an Earth Day cleanup at a nearby park/river. Oy.

I guess I better get used to it with all the time I’ll be spending outdoors this spring in NJ!

I don’t want lyme disease, I don’t want lyme disease, I don’t want lyme disease. Nor do I want an arachnid making his new home inside of my skin, thank you.
