R2HK: bagpipes and strawberries for a ghost-free life


It’s been exactly 56 days since I boarded a plane for the longest ride of my life and flew from California to Hong Kong. I’ve a laundry list of crazy things that I’ve learned or noticed or had happen to... Continue Reading →

R2HK: making my way downtown


The last few days have been full of firsts. Flew to Asia for the first time. First time living in a big city with buildings so tall I actually don’t know what the weather is until I get down to... Continue Reading →

Turns out it takes a monthish to write a blog when you are depressed.


This isn't the first time I've gone through a few months of feelings that feel bigger than I can manage. But I am growing, because I figured out that for me, I can decide that no one gets to steal... Continue Reading →

RinR: Olympic Withdrawals, and the marathon ahead.

RinR: Week Without Walls


If I were to change careers (something I think all teachers consider every Monday morning), at the top of the list would be "Karaoke DJ." Beekeeper, baby goat cuddler, and sloth handler are also on the list. But karaoke is something... Continue Reading →

RinR: This week’s dream


Highlights of the week: every once in a while I do something that makes me proud of me and shows growth. I like to then say "hashtag adult." I have discovered you don't actually want to put "adult" as a hashtag... Continue Reading →

RinR: Living the Dream


Highlights of the week: Tomorrow is May the Fourth be with you day and I am having a CRISIS because my Star Wars sweater has some holiday-shenanigans stains on it...I wore it so much at home that I think I... Continue Reading →

time capsule: flirty-two


I've spun around the sun another 365.25 blessed days, and it's time to recognize. Seeing growth in yourself is important. And makes you laugh. I highly recommend. In fact, if you want to comment with your answers to some of these... Continue Reading →
