Third Time’s not the Charm


Maybe it’s the threat of turning 35 looming around the corner (one hundred days! From today! Plenty of time for you to arrange a llama petting zoo experience for my birthday.) that has inspired me to make some changes lately.... Continue Reading →

r2hk: clockenflap, turkey, water buffaloes


I also thought I was standing next to a celebrity, and then after a few minutes realized it was just someone I follow on instagram. But by far, the strangest part of the weekend involved feces.

25 more glasses of lemonade to fight for


       I pulled a shard of glass out of my hair at the dinner table tonight. Running my hands through my hair, I thought I had found an odd patch of dandruff, but came away with a rather... Continue Reading →

R2HK: When life hands you lemons . . .


I used to laugh at people who had five year, ten year, more-than-that year plans. "I don't remember what I thought I was going to do this time today, why would I have a plan for the next few years?"... Continue Reading →

What to do if you ask a woman if she’s pregnant and she says “no.” And other times you made a mistake. And some things I wanted to say.


So, you’ve just met someone, you’re not close, and you have no reason to know if they’re pregnant or not. Or married or not. Or happy or not. Or want to be any of those things. Or what their life... Continue Reading →

Disclaimer: This post was written under the influence of a wine-soaked happy hour with a friend going through a break-up, end of the school year exhaustion, Hong Kong humidity permeating my already scrambled brain, and "Benny and the Jets" on... Continue Reading →

34: hashtag blessed


For the last few years, I have written birthday blog posts filling out the same set of questions each time, so I can look back each year and feel what it was to be me in that moment. A time... Continue Reading →

r2hk: lessons and blessings


I’ve asked Google many a thing - “how do you bake chicken” “which one is cabbage and which is lettuce” “what does an eclipse mean.” But perhaps the most humbling thing I’ve ever thrown out to the universe was what... 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 →

r2hk: just in cases


"Love Actually" is a terrible movie. There. I said it. (This person here said it much better.) It is, however, undeniably quotable. Its opening scene is the best part - "Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world,... Continue Reading →
