Belated Mother’s Day Adventure: The Golden Gate Bridge

My belated Mother’s Day present, in this case, was definitely better late than never!  My mom and I made plans to walk the Golden Gate Bridge by taking the ferry. I thought it was an awesome idea!...more

A Salad

I’ve spent the last two days inside my tiny apartment nursing a stubborn cold.  In my bedroom rather.  I guess they are one in the same really.  I’ve spent a lot of time in this room.  It has served as my bedroom, our living room, our dining room, and a guest bedroom.  My walls are covered in postcards from our travels, inspirational quotes rewritten in my favorite calligraphy pen and the four-foot words HAPPY BDAY, Collin’s contribution to my special day last fall.  When we first arrived these walls were blank, an off-white zigzag patterned nothingness with br...more

Will ARROW Be Fall's TV Adventure to Watch?

[Click here to view original post.]Happy Friday, everyone!Caught within the chaos that is the end of the school year, I’m just stopping in with a short one today. My friend passed along a clip that kicked off a great second-to-last day of work, so I wanted to share it with you.

Not Harry Potter Kids? More Like Barefoot, in a Creek, With a Net and Golf Club.

"Old soul" is so over used.  Peter is more like a crotchety, disgruntled old man stuck in the body of a seven year old.  You all know the guy that became famous for sharing "Shit my dad says", well his dad should know better!  ...more

Les Alpes

I spent last weekend in the Alps with Collin and the other Americans studying in Chambéry for the past trimester.  We had the option of snowboarding but the lack of snow as we pulled into the lodge made our decision not to spend the 40 Euros for the forfait (ticket) much easier.  We spent three days hiking, ice-skating, and getting to know one another.  There is even a gal from Tennessee, going to school at the University of Montana!  It was so wonderful to meet these amazing young ladies emanating 'home'.  I thought, how awesome are these brave young girls, out in ...more

Burma’s Election:   Waiting for Mr. President

In early March 2012, I was near the village of Nampan in Burma, where teak and bamboo houses seem to pose precariously on stilts above placid shallow blue canals, where house cats gaze out over the water from boat ramps, dreaming of trees and birds, where children as young as four use child-size paddles to help steer the family boat.   But in this particular spot, children were running everywhere.  Perhaps they were just excited to be on a large patch of dry land in the generally water-bound world of Inle Lake.  ...more
