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 →

HongKongmedy of Errors


What follows is an account of most of the things that have gone wrong or I have done wrong here in HK so far. It's long because. I'm me. But also funny. Bc me. So picture this - it’s 6am,... Continue Reading →

R2HK: Alis volat propiis


Here goes my flight. Here I sit in the airport. Bags are checked. I am not sure what I’ve forgotten yet. My 'last supper' was Zachary's deep dish pizza, salad with ranch dressing, wine, and my puppies in the backyard.... Continue Reading →

saying goodbye and a bit about why and how i’ve depressed.


"How was it?" Everyone wants to know. "Was it hard to say goodbye?" "What do you miss already? What will you miss?" Well. Every part was the worst part, actually. I was saying 'goodbye' to many things and people I'm... Continue Reading →

RinR: Back to Rio to see Team US-YAY!

RinR: The Week in Things

RinR: Eu falo português! -ish


After six months of classes, we have graduated from beginner Portuguese to intermediate Portuguese! Yay! I can't believe it. In order to pass into the next class, we each had to deliver presentations with Powerpoints for at least five minutes,... Continue Reading →

RinR: Easter as an Ex-pat the bunny


Holidays are funny. Growing up, you can never imagine doing them any way other than what your family does. To me, Easter means waking up, baskets, finding eggs, a special breakfast with specific biscuits (Grands Flaky!), bacon, mimosas when you... Continue Reading →

RinR: Monday RoundUp


I just looked down my shirt and realized I had forgotten about the papertowel I had stuffed in my sports bra to soak up the sweat a few hours ago. It's hot in Brazil.
