about – 2008, less cranky

i’m andrea hull. i started this website in late 2002 in an attempt to keep my family from worrying what i was doing with my life way out there in los angeles, while they were across the country in maryland still. also, i wanted to learn html – so i got some books, opened up a free geocities page, and sat for hours at unused computers in ucla’s research library. about three months later, i bought this domain, mellowtrouble.net – named after mellow and trouble, two of my four cats at the time – and i haven’t regretted it since.
