A Quick Spring Update

Good morning all! It's been a long, odd couple of weeks, so let's celebrate the wins, shall we? I received my first dose of the vaccine on March 31st! I was so happy and grateful to have received it. My second dose is on April 21st. My second creative non-fiction writing class ended last week.… Continue reading A Quick Spring Update

Happy 2021

Happy New Year all! I hope you had a cozy winter break. Ours was good. I definitely felt sad at points - we ended up not going on our camping trip (which was the right decision) and we missed our families. I think the night before my brother's birthday made me the saddest, since I… Continue reading Happy 2021

It’s the Most Wonderful Time…of the Year (???)

Hello friends. Happy Sunday. Five days left before Christmas, and eleven more days in this garbage year. But at least we've approved a second vaccine in the US! I feel like the light is finally at the end of the tunnel with this pandemic. I follow several medical professionals/science communicators on Instagram for COVID info,… Continue reading It’s the Most Wonderful Time…of the Year (???)

Small Adventures

I've been feeling hopeful lately. Maybe it's because I finally broke down and started reading FiveThirtyEight again after swearing off polls forever in 2016. Maybe it's the warmth and coziness of the season, as the leaves fall and the days get shorter. I've spent so much time dreading a pandemic winter, but now? If it… Continue reading Small Adventures

Mildly Optimistic

Hello friends! I hope you are safe and well. It's hard to believe it's almost the end of August. I am currently in the midst of another August 31st deadline (how is it nearly the end of another fiscal year?!)

FO – Yoga Pants

The past several weekends, I've woken up feeling sad. Not wanting to be idle, I decided to find an activity that I could lose myself in. Something meditative and soothing, but an activity that I could finish faster for instant gratification. Enter sewing. I've documented my sewing attempts on and off the past several years… Continue reading FO – Yoga Pants

San Francisco 2020

Good morning friends! This morning, I wanted to share my San Francisco trip from February with you. It's taken me awhile to find the motivation for this post. I think I needed some time to unpack this trip, especially in light of the pandemic. I felt sad thinking about it at the beginning, but now… Continue reading San Francisco 2020

Memorial Day Weekend

Hello friends! If you are in the states, Happy Memorial Day. We have the day off today, which is so nice. I don't know what to do with all this unstructured time. I simultaneously want to do all the things and do nothing. I realized that I hadn't had a proper day off (not counting… Continue reading Memorial Day Weekend

Weekend Makes – Earl Grey Wrap

Happy Sunday, friends!  I hope you all are doing well! I had a good week.  It was a very quiet week at work, the quietest since...I can't even remember.  I am grateful for it.  Yesterday we decided to go for a little hike in a nearby park, since I desperately needed a change of pace… Continue reading Weekend Makes – Earl Grey Wrap
