700 days in HK


totally mesmerized by this sunrise as we landed in SFO To celebrate my 700th day of living in Hong Kong, I left! I hadn't been home to California since last summer and I felt it in my bones. The last... Continue Reading →

to all the roomies i’ve loved before


at the time, taking a picture in a dirty mirror made sense. I’ve never lived alone. I grew up the oldest of several siblings, then college ushered in a series of roommates. Including my brief stint in the sorority house,... Continue Reading →

Thirty5 Came! And went! And I didn’t even cry once, which was amazing. Part of that is that I have been so so busy lately there hasn’t been enough time to get sad even if I wanted to try. And... Continue Reading →

first grade and happy endings


My 30 day blog challenge ended a while ago. I’m glad I’ve completed it, but part of me is missing the daily outpouring of allthethings like it mattered. It’s nice that the writing bug has bit again, but it’s also... Continue Reading →

Thirty days in the States and the following has come to my attention: It’s super weird to wear shoes inside the house. Ranch is the best flavor. It’s nice to feel like a normal-sized person. It’s nice to wave and... Continue Reading →

r2hk: rio roomie reunion (wrapping up the first year in HK with a bang)


Not a day goes by where I don’t wonder at where I live. Out my window, I see apartment buildings higher than anything I’ve been in in California, and the earthquake-ometer all Bay Area natives have installed at birth goes... Continue Reading →

r2hk: this one wild and precious life


Captain’s Log: Day 21 of no social media* and I am slowly becoming accustomed to waiting in line with no meme-induced chuckling. Somehow I am getting by without daily briefings on the end of the world from Amy Siskind. My... Continue Reading →
