RinR: The Facebook “Shared Memories” Thing, and other thoughts if I get there.


I can't decide my feelings towards Facebook's flashback feature. Like so many updates over the years, I feel it snuck up on me one day, the way the newsfeed and political garbage (if this Donald Trump madness persists I am moving... Continue Reading →

RinR: Back in Action


It's a profound moment when you move somewhere and subconsciously start calling that place "home." During the five weeks I was in the States, my home base was my parents' house in the Bay Area. I hung up some clothes... Continue Reading →

Fail like a Champ


I'm headed back to Brazil! Someday! Maybe! It might happen! And until it does, I am mostly happy being in A/C at this bar with stellar wi-fi and Ranch dressing. And having a hotel room to myself for the third time... Continue Reading →

Home!


I is home! It is good! Murica! It was a 32 hour adventure through four time zones and four airports, but I made it. The time in the Rio airport was sweet because one of my besties was also flying that... Continue Reading →

RinR: Things I Miss While Living Abroad


1. My dog. I should probably feel guilty about not putting my family and friends here first, but those people can Face my Time. Kizzy and I have tried communicating that way, but it stresses her out to hear my voice... Continue Reading →

RinR: Wed-nes-days


What is it about teaching on a Wednesday? I can't remember if they were as difficult when I was bartending or waiting tables...is it all M-F 9-5's or is it every job? Is it just being alive? Wednesdays are like... Continue Reading →

RinR: Earning the Nickname


I'm in my thirties now. My half birthday (I celebrate things like that. I know you're not surprised.) was on Monday. I was 30, but now I'm also that and in my thirties. This week also marked another important anniversary... Continue Reading →

Home for a wee bit of bureaucrazy.


Here is what I have accomplished: Went to the last Giants regular season home game, stood idly by as my cousin almost caught a Buster Posey ball, had my first chicken nuggets in two months, which is a record abstention,... Continue Reading →

“So, what’s it like to be home again?”


Well, it's good! It's another transition phase in a lot of ways…after spending so much time by myself, I almost feel awkward being around people all the time and having to engage. And it's never an easy thing to move... Continue Reading →

2013 in Statii, and where Rachel Realizes She’s Happy


Lists are a great way to wrap things up at the end of the year. I don't have anything cool like "The Most Important Hedgehogs of 2013," and Buzzfeed probably already has it, but I like to wrap ish up... Continue Reading →

Weekly Win(e)d Up


Favorite Moment: I just had a truly glorious, free, loud, relieving sneeze. It made me so happy. If I could do that every hour, on the hour…nay, if the whole world could feel such joy in a sneeze, we would... Continue Reading →
