TED Talk Tuesday: Less Stuff

Today, I felt inspired. Which is kind of funny—really—because today, I woke up, ate breakfast, watched copious amounts of Netflix while it snowed outside, and then sat on a bus for seven laborious hours. Nothing particularly mind-blowing about all that. Except I’m lying. Instead if just watching Netflix, I happened...

2014 Bucket List: New Year, New York

I recently published a list outlining what I did and (more likely) did not cross off of my 2013 Bucket List. My bucket lists are my favorite tradition, started New Years 2009, before I graduated high school. Here’s my reasoning behind bucket lists, rather than resolutions: Resolutions start with the...

I’m not good at goodbyes. And by “not good,” I mean I tend to avoid them all together (One big exception would be crying in an alley with my little before I abandoned her to study abroad, but I digress…). With a major chapter of my life coming to a...

The resurrection of the “Perfect 10”

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, I believed in the concept of a Perfect 10. As with many things in my malleable life, it all started with a book. Jill Martin and Dana Ravich’s I Have Nothing to Wear! to be exact. It’s a stupidly simple...

Life in the Fast Lane

I wanted to wait a bit to let it all sink in, and because I didn’t want the information to work against any other potential offers, but ladies and gents… I. Am. Employed. I’ve known for about a week and a half, but I received and subsequently accepted a temporary position at...

Long Island (video)

A while ago, I posted photographs from my little field trip to Long Island with Batman, with the promise of a video soon to come. Well, after some struggling with software, we’re all set. As a refresher, Long Island is the supposed inspiration for the thriller “Shutter Island,” and mildly...
