Welcome to Felish…da dish! This is my little corner of the world where I’ve been sharing what’s going on in my life since April 2003. A lot has changed in my life since then, but my nickname (and blog title) is still going strong.
My name is Felicia, and I’ve been blogging here, in some form or another, since I was 21 and still in college. Now, I’m a ‘young professional’, making my way in the working world, and trying to figure out what happens next.
I’m originally from Philadelphia (“born and raised”, just like the Fresh Prince). I attended Haverford College, where I spent four great years growing up with some fantastic friends who I am lucky to still have in my life.
After I graduated, I made a move up to New England, where I’ve been ever since. I’ve called Boston my home since 2006, but I’ll always be a Philly gal at heart. Water is pronounced ‘wudder’, ‘going down the shore’ still means going to the beach, and Phillies trump the Red Sox any day.
Like many, it took a while for me to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. I doubt I’ll ever fully figure it out. I decided to go back to school for my MBA and MSIS and joined a technology company after graduation. I’m not a tech geek by any stretch of the imagination, but this field is interesting and exciting, and I’m going to see where this path takes me.
P.S. the name of the blog is derived from one of my more prevalent nicknames. Let’s just say that when my parents named me, they thought they’d hit on a combination that wouldn’t invite nicknames. Little did they realize that 30+ years later I’d have a list that is literally pages long, filled with nickname after name. Lovely.
