RinR: thoughts and things and tis the season


My technical title at my school is “English Language Developer” but in our contract we also sign to do “other duties as assigned.” For someone with my costume collection, shamelessness, and childlike sense of humor, this means I end up being a spokesperson... Continue Reading →

RinR: 500 Days of Rio


Happy anniversary to me! 500 days ago today, I looked at my phone calendar, and it said "move to Rio and rule the world." So after very little sleep, my mom and sisters drove me to the airport in the... Continue Reading →

RinR: thoughts and things


What do you call an old snowman?         Water. Why did Santa's little helper feel sad?           He had low elf esteem. I've got a thing on the side. Yeah. That's right. A... Continue Reading →

RinR: Thanks and Thoughts and Things


I love Thanksgiving. I love looking on facebook and instagram and seeing everyone get mushy about those they love, and taking a solid timeout from the angry-elfness that seems to be infecting the interwebs lately. I love the family photos... Continue Reading →

exes and ohs


I miss him at the oddest times. A video I know would have made him laugh, hearing Journey on karaoke night, a particularly witty pun I know he would have enjoyed. I wonder if there are still bits of me embedded in his daily life,... Continue Reading →

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 →

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: This Week with no Walls


You might have notice a flurry of photos frolicking afross my facebook dash last feek. It was "Week Without Walls" at my school, where someone who probably has never had to chaperone a field trip decided that Kinder-2nd graders should totally go on field trips for four consecutive days and then top it off with a sleepover at school.

RinR: The Week in Things
