This time last year I was strolling around London, pretend-shopping in Covent Garden and wandering back and forth across Tower Bridge. I'd visited London once before this when I was 18, a mere freshman in college, and had never before travelled alone. This time was different - I was 24, had a little money in … Continue reading reminiscing in towel pants
Did ANYONE catch Miss USA last night? I'll assume most people didn't. I'm not living under the delusion that many people are into pageants. Just roll with me for a minute.

This was a great find because I happen to be turning 25 … Continue reading 25 before 25
me, January 1st: new year, new me #health me, 2am, January 3rd: wakes up in the emergency room Just to start out on a positive note, January 2nd was an awesome day. It was a total bro day, if anyone remembers How I Met Your Mother back when it was lighthearted and full of laser-tag. I was taken out for a … Continue reading hospital aside, A+ day!
