therapy: hit and run/walk/get outside


I move to Hong Kong in two weeks, so it is entirely reasonable that people are starting to ask me if I'm ready. The short answer is "no." The long answer is "NoooooOOOOOooooOOOOOOOOooooo." There are about a million things to... Continue Reading →

RinR: sunsets and dumpster fires


It took a few days and a few chopps, a few "tudo bem?!" and many kisses, but it was waking up in the middle of the night in my own sweat to violently scratch at multiple mosquito bites sprinkled across... Continue Reading →
