“I’m not blogging because…”

May 20, 2013

I saw a girlfriend this weekend who was disappointed I don’t blog anymore. For myself, at least – blogging for others is my job at work. She said she understood. I’d disappeared into the happy place of “Boyfriend World.” You know, that annoying place where your friends go and are suddenly rendered unable to return […]

The Day I Wanted Crab Cakes and Ended Up in a One-Way Tunnel to the Airport.

March 7, 2013

I’m stuck in this one-way tunnel – that I wasn’t supposed to be in – to an airport I don’t need to be going to – in a city I don’t know – with a dying cell phone. And I start crying. But just how did a day trip to Boston get so emotional? Let’s […]

Ten minutes on storytelling.

Sipping quickly from a coffee mug, I’m about to leave to go speak to (and with) a group of Capital Region bloggers I’ve never met. I’ve been asked to talk about creating blogs worth reading – and how to share them, how to promote them. So I’m thinking. And thinking quick, because quite honestly, I […]

The One About Living With The Boy: Super Bowl Edition

February 3, 2013

It’s 4:25 p.m. the day of the Super Bowl, and we’re about to have some friends over for the game. The veggie platter is made, pizzas ordered, onion dip mixed, the frozen T.G.I. Friday snacks in the freezer just in case we run out of food or I really want a jalapeƱo popper. The apartment […]

So we decided our same-area-code-otherwise-long-distance relationship was a total drag on our gas mileage. Where I worked/lived was 45 minutes from where he lived which was 30 minutes from where he worked which was 40 minutes from where I lived (follow that triangle?). We also decided we might kinda sorta really want to be roommates. […]

The most ridiculous pot of parsley. And other news.

Once upon a time a year ago, I blogged every day. And I miss it. This is my absurdly large parsley plant. Since cooler weather came, it’s lived indoors. I water it in my shower. It’s on steroids.

In the meantime… Stories.

It’s been a really long time since I sat down to write up some random stories. It’s not that I don’t write – Every day, I write about mobile apps, pest control, plastic surgery, resorts, safety eyewear – I wrote a blog about blogging. I read and write a lot at work, and I’ve gotten […]

A year ago, this blog was the everyday travel journal of a backpacker with no itinerary, no deadlines, no responsibilities but to stay alive and not lose her passport. It was fantasy-like. And then the blog transitioned to what’s next. The one-way ticket bought for a return to New York. Then the job search. Then […]

Quite randomly, a man came up to Ryan and handed him this yesterday. He let me share.
