The Jellybeans You Have Left

Hello, lovely readers. It has been awhile. In my last post, I said that I was going to take a break from blogging until I remembered why I had started doing it in the first place (hint: it wasn’t for the pageviews). A few weeks went by, and I realized that I really miss blogging. […]

Why I’m Taking a Blogging Hiatus

This past weekend, I did two days of technological silence: no phone, no computer, limited television. It was joyous. Incredible, really. So refreshing to actually be with the people I was with, and enjoy my surroundings and conversations, rather than constantly reaching for my phone. It was interesting to see the restlessness that I developed, […]

How to Never Get Caught With Your Blog Posts Down

I have this terrible habit of not writing blog posts until the last minute, then sitting at the computer and staring at a blank draft until I break down and Hulk smash the keyboard on the floor, drowning it in my bitter tears of recrimination. Maybe it’s not quite that dramatic. But it does add […]

June Standouts: Book Review Time

June was a kick ass month for books. I only read 10, but 5 of them warranted 5 star ratings. :O And only 2 got less than 4. Seriously, color me floored. Really, though, it only makes sense, since June is the best month ever. It gave the earth me, right? 😉 Are you guys ready for […]

On Fear

I am so afraid, all the time. I think that I have a bit of a generalized anxiety disorder (unsurprising, as anxiety and depression often go hand in hand). There are many times when I am paralyzed with absurd fears. For instance, a few weeks ago I wanted to have a nap, but as I was […]

Have We Done 642 Things Yet?

Oh, nowhere close to 642 things? Yay, that means there are so many left to do! By now you know the spiel, yah? There’s a book with 642 things to write about in it and every couple of weeks or so, I randomly select one, write for 15 minutes, and post the (largely) unedited result […]

It Ain’t Difficult Being Green

The other day, laughing, I told Bryan, “I’m turning more and more into a hippie every day!” At the time, I was referring to my imminent attempt at transitioning into running in Vibram FiveFingers (my new favorite thing in the world!), but my most hippie-esque trait is my newfound appreciation and concern for the environment.

Start Your Own Meditation Practice

I am writing this post as much for me as for you guys. I had been meditating daily for almost four months and then WHAM! life got crazy and now it’s been almost a month since I last spent any time on my meditation cushion (a glorified pillow). My hope is that this post will […]

Urban Detox: Nature Edition

It has officially been determined that city life no longer agrees with me. I used to love the city, and who knows, maybe I will again in the future. By right now, I can’t stand the noise, the pollution, the construction. I find myself winding tighter and tighter with each passing moment spent in this […]

A Birthday Memorial

I was going to have a post today about what I learned the year I was 23. But other stuff came up that just seemed more important. I share a birthday with a few awesome people. I love my birthday. A LOT. And I got a little thrill out of sharing my favorite day of […]
