Podstein: The humorous conjunction of the surnames Podhajsky and Lichtenstein.
Ellen Lichtenstein Podhajsky is many things: none of them describable in mere words. I am currently a graduate student and a committed lifetime-learner. I am fascinated by the intricacies of human communication. I love animals (all, but particularly my special fur-babies) sarcasm, verbosity, and chocolate.
I have opinions. Sometimes they are not popular ones, nevertheless, I often have a hard time keeping them to myself.
I am compassionate, empathetic, and sometimes “overly” emotional. I may or may not be safe for work.
I value authenticity in whatever form that may take and believe that living an authentic life is one of the highest achievements any person can obtain.
