Sometimes, I like to think of really bad ideas
Wednesday, March 21, 2012 2 comments
Sometimes I think of really bad ideas. Often they are on accident. Like once, at camp in the winter, there were 12 of us in a cabin, and so someone was always heading out or in, or in or out, which meant lots of opening and closing of the do... Read more
When Good Goals Go Bad
Monday, March 19, 2012 3 comments
The goal: Shop only locally-owned establishments for the entire month of March The bad: I live in Fairbanks, Alaska. We are not a farming community. We are not a agricultural oasis. We are a frozen land of swampy bogs and occasional hot spr... Read more
How to make birthday cake
Sunday, February 05, 2012 2 comments
A week before baking: Decide on what to make. Look up lots of recipes online. Don't write anything down, just observe. Two days before baking: Wash a sinkload of dishes. Everybody knows you can't cook without a clean(er) kitchen! Make... Read more
I'm so fast they made me run on the freeway!

I'm such a speed demon that I was forced to run on a freeway this weekend. Except that I mostly walked on the freeway, and okay fine, there were thousands of other people on the freeway too, and okay fine again, it was closed to car traffic. But... Read more

Dear SP, I am sitting here tonight wondering why I've not logged in for so long. My answer I think is that its because things are going well. Its not that I don't love you all just as much, but I am in a good place and don't need as much reass... Read more

I vacuumed my couch yesterday. As in picked up the vacuum and walked back and forth on the couch with it. Then I used the hose to suck up a whole cat's worth of hair that the vacuum couldn't get in regular vacuum position. Then I swept and va... Read more

'Tis the season for reading everyone's plans for 2011, resolutions, vows to eat better, move more, etc and I've been doing a good job of keeping up on other people's stuff, but I broke out in a panic when I realized what my 2011 is going to look... Read more

If you've been following my blogging drama for a while, you may have noticed that my topics are pretty limited to running and boy drama (that was this morning's topic also). This is the end of the boy drama. I have been hugely disrespected, Ne... Read more
Honesty is the best policy.

Honesty is the best policy. Always. I am not such a fan of feelings, and admitting them is even worse. Sure, its easy to say you're sad sometimes, but to admit to yourself and others WHY you're sad can be tricky. I think its a lot easier... Read more
Dear World, I need a break.

Dear World, I feel as though you've shoved me through the wringer in the last few weeks, months, and even the last year. I don't know what I'm supposed to learn from all this, but is it asking too much to get a little tiny reprieve in there so... Read more

Its just temporary, but I have to log off now. Just until the semesters over, December 17th I'm allowed back on to do something besides track exercise, but not before then. I am feeling totally overwhelmed by school, so I thought today that ... Read more
New normal stinks, and I don't like change.
Friday, November 05, 2010 6 comments
I'm trying to find a new normal, I really am. This summer was a little topsy-turvey. Huge understatement, but as a funny aside, the spellchecker wants me to change 'topsy' into 'tipsy' and 'turvey' into 'turkey', so we could also say my summer... Read more
