I Think I’m Turning 29

Earlier this month, I officially entered the final year of my 20s. It seems like only yesterday that I was a newly-minted 20-year-old: excited that I was no longer a teenager but also terrified about going off to college and living on my own. It seemed like there were so many ways a could fail […]

These Aren’t Resolutions

So… It’s already March. In case you didn’t notice, I did not post my new year resolutions for 2015 back in January, as is my habit. Not that it matters: as I so masterfully demonstrated in 2014, I’m not always the best at keeping said resolutions. Which is why I’m not making any new resolutions […]

The Best Laid Plans

So let’s address the elephant in the room: I absolutely sucked at accomplishing any of my goals for 2014. Not only was Project New Leaf a complete and utter bust, but I didn’t even finish my nerdier (and far less lofty) resolutions. “The best-laid plans of mice and men,” as the saying goes, “often go […]

A Nerdier New Year

So it turns out that one of my statements last time should have had a little asterisk next to it. Despite proclamations that I would be foregoing my annual compulsion to make resolutions, I’ve recently had a change of heart. Over on Geek & Sundry, Felicia Day posted a video evangelizing the idea of Geek […]

I Dream of Comic-Con

Every year around this time, I feel like made the wrong choice in not going to San Diego Comic-Con. Last year, I was even on vacation while it was happening, except that I was in Las Vegas for what turned out to be a mediocre West Coast Swing dance convention. And last Fall I barely […]

Dance Like No One’s Watching

I just finished another weekend of almost non-stop dancing, courtesy of the Capital Swing Convention. As usual, I competed in the Novice Jack & Jill (but didn’t place), hung out with old friends and made new ones, and danced into the wee hours of the morning for three days straight. Best of all, I have […]

2012: It’s Resolution Time!!

The year 2012 has officially arrived, and that means it’s time for me to post my resolutions for this year. Rather than just list my goals for the year – as I’ve done in the past – I thought I’d give a little explanation on why I’m resolved to make these goals a reality. So […]

Fitness Report – 4 Months

So as I mentioned last time, I’ve been going to the gym regularly for a while; four months, to be precise. When I stopped working back in August (and subsequently fell into a lot more free time), I knew that one of the ways I wanted to fill said time was to join a local […]

New Year, New Resolutions

January 1st brings that ages old tradition of making resolutions for positive change in the new year. I know a lot of people are soured on the idea of “New Year Resolutions” because, they say, why should you wait until the first day of a new year of start changing your life for the better. […]
