Congrats! You've stumbled upon this segment that shall introduce you to thy team of Explore Athens. You've met some of us via instagram blurbs, and there's some video footage of us all rambling about life somewhere, but for now—this is what we're working with.
Please state your name for the record
Annie Highly-Caffeinated Nichtern in real life; @annienichtern in fake life.
What is your position at EA?
I believe the term most often thrown around is "Dysfunctional Director." To sum it up: I started this thing, I gathered some badasses, we became a team, we grew a little, we dreamed a little, and I text them at weird hours of the night with my latest ideas.
Where u come from gurl?
New York. Although I don't have much of an accent and my "New Yorker" impression is pretty sucky.
Me!!!! in NY!!!!
What brought you here?
I follow my gut and my gut said go to UGA. One day I'll make mature, educated decisions but for now, this'll do.
What is the meaning of life?
What is your favorite spot in Athens?
Whenever I'm away from Athens, I always find myself missing its rooftops and open fields. Does this suffice?
Mother's maiden name?
Favorite Athens memory?
Crap. I'm going to have to go with the day that kind of sparked my appreciation for this whole thing we've got going on. Dev and I had spent the day ~exploring~ and we were going to call it quits when I suggested we go stop by The Pit. We had shot at a lot of different, cramped locations that day, so when we got to the field (sry 4 trespassing) we ran around like 5 year olds. The sun started to set, and Devon decided that we should dance on it. So we did.
Watching the Christmas parade while hanging out of these windows was pretty cool too. (Warning: the highest of all high quality photos comin' at ya.)
What else do you do with your life?
I work for a Mommy Blogger which is random but I dig it. I also work for student affairs. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY I AM THE SOCIAL MEDIA CHAIR FOR UGA HEROs(I'm just gonna leave the link to my fundraising page here because yolo.) I also lay on the floor and ask people to make me coffee a lot.
How do you take your coffee? (Question curtesy of Cool Human Kate)
Black, unlike my soul. My soul is doing just fine.
Favorite Mexican Restaurant in Athens?
Sorry, I'm still not over how lame my answer to that last question just was.
Any final words?
You should follow @bitcheslovemurals because Berkley and I are trying to make our dreams flourish. Also, really do take a moment of your time to check out HEROs.
