I usually dread Party Games. In fact, I might go so far as to say that MOST people are with me on this one. Especially when you don’t know everyone attending, which is increasingly the case as friends from high school and friends from college converge for the Big Day Festivities. Last week, however, IContinue reading “Bachelorette”

Reflections on being “home”…

This was written in June of 2007, shortly after returning home from a year spent living in Aix-en-Provence. I’m there…here… When all is said and done, I’ve decided that going abroad is sort of like being a chronic not-dater. Nobody really gets it unless they’re in the exact same situation.

I’ve done some growingContinue reading “My Real Life: Living With Roommates”

Well Shoot, Winchester.

I have been watching the show Supernatural  on Netflix whenever I get sick lately. So, as you can probably guess, I’ve watched a few seasons worth of episodes at this point.

Suffice it to say, I’ve never been one of those people that can give up candy orContinue reading “Chocolate Chick Cookie Bites”
