LATERBLOG: SO MANY TEMPLES, SO LITTLE TIME

I made a quick trip to Utah where my parents are setting up the next chapter of their lives. They’re empty-nesters now, and we all came together for a “hurrah!” before we all separated once more for who knows how long. Utah’s great for many things, and most of all in my humble opinion, is […]

PREACH! A YEAR FOR GOD

Another year has been and gone and I’ve been contemplating what twenty-fourteen meant to me. I like to recall a past year and it’s pivotal accomplishments or adventures. This past year was a little different: some things melted into the background, other things were completely cast aside. What was left was something I consider most […]

IT’S BEEN A HELLUVA YEAR FOLKS

Well despite 2013 being relatively unsuccessful from a blogging standpoint, I’ve got to admit that in reality it’s been one for the books. (Sadly such books don’t include my personal journal) I rang in the New Year from the roof of my parent’s four-storey terraced house in Frankfurt, under a shower of not-illegal fireworks (god […]

AN APPROXIMATION OF HOW I ZUMBA

Finally the internets can provide an approximation of my zumba-ing talent and abilities. Though I can’t stress enough that none of these women are actually me in the flesh; guess which one most resembles me…

IT’S 2013 AND I GUESS I’LL BE OPTIMISTIC ABOUT IT

Happy new year! I brought the new year in by myself, for the first time in my life. And it was kind of awesome so don’t feel sorry for me okay? While you were dancing your feet into swollen bruises, head pounding with too-loud dance music that you’d never choose to listen to yourself, eating […]

WHY I’LL NEVER WEAR PANTS TO CHURCH

Really. Like NEVER. Currently a group of Mormon feminists are promoting a day of omitting the social norm of wearing a skirt or dress to church. Instead, they propose to women all over the world to wear pants to their Sabbath day meetings this week. Their goal is to draw awareness to what they claim […]

WHY I HAVE NO MOTIVATION TO RUN IN THE WINTER (OR EVER?)

Whenever I’m on my way to work in the morning, I usually contend for pathway rights with ambitious Lycra clad runners. In the winter, and especially here in Europe, this means that every morning I get to witness a literal demonstration of all the winter-wear gadgets the SkyMall has to offer. Fancypants ear muffs, stretchy […]

LIFE GOES ON

By popular demand (I’m looking at you, Lace), a much overdue update on my life.  Things are relatively great right now.  Or at least much better than I anticipated they would be right now. It’s a little disconcerting to be an unwed nomad at such a period of my life, at least within the confines […]

AND WITH THAT, SHE TOOK TO THE OPEN ROAD ONCE MORE

Well as awful as I am at keeping up with myself in blog format (as well as real- life-format, I should add), I take to the internets to officially close this small chapter of my life in the Americas.  It’s been the hardest decision I’ve ever made, mostly because it’s not a decision I actually […]

PUTTING UP WITH INSOMNIA

Due to life stresses and an overabundance of time that I just don’t know how to organize, I have not been sleeping consistently/ at all.  Perfect excuse to stay up all night painting, I supposed.  I paint and paint, then hate what I can see, so I scratch off the paint as best I can […]
