If you follow this blog at all, I have clearly been pretty M.I.A. this year. I had a pretty rough first half of 2016 - I tried to continue blogging from time to time, but my creative energy had been pretty zapped by a pretty terrible job situation. For being a generally confident, happy person, I… Continue reading The Post I’ve Needed to Write for a While…
I hope everyone had a fun and safe time ringing in another new year. 2014 was exactly as I hoped it would be - free of very much change. 2013 brought SO MUCH CHANGE that I started 2014 hoping for some routine.

On top of that, my free time was mostly spent packing up my belongings and making… Continue reading Happy New Year!

I have a very distinct memory of being in my friend's grandparents' basement at 12:01 a.m. on January 1, 2000. We were drinking sparkling grape juice and dancing to Aqua, feeling like the coolest kids in town. It was epic. But 2010? 2010 was beyond epic. 2010 was...monumental. And here I am, almost eleven years… Continue reading Au Revoir, 2010. It’s been real.
