4 Comments 23 July 2014

My grandmother drinking a margarita for the first time in her life “This man started chatting me up in the parking lot,” my grandmother called to tell me this past Saturday. “Man, did he like to talk a lot. He’s 87 too.”  I wasn’t sure where she was going with this. “Anyway, he asked me [...]

Stories of Strangers on the Train: The Veteran

1 Comment 26 June 2014

I met a lot of people on my recent 96-hour train trip. I shared a story about the old man who looked like the main character in Up. He was traveling to Chicago from San Antonio, heartbroken after arriving the day after his sister had passed away. He was tiny and had an infectious giggle. Though [...]

5 Comments 18 June 2014

Last week, I took a 48-hour train trip from Austin to New York. Some of you have been following my adventures on social media (thanks for coming along for the ride!), but I wanted to share some more stories on my blog from the tracks. Amtrak didn’t pick me for their Amtrak Residency, so I [...]

Why I Haven’t Written on my Blog in Awhile

9 Comments 18 April 2014

Hi. My blog is sad. I barely write on her anymore. You see, something happened. I got a completely unexpected and wonderful writing job, and my blog has taken a back seat. I’m sorry, blog. I love you and I miss you. I will try to play with you again. The job I mentioned is [...]

Why Dressing Like an Oddball Could Make You More Successful

1 Comment 21 March 2014

I don’t know about you, but I’ve felt like a goddamn weirdo for most of my life. Even though I’ve grown up to be a relatively normal adult who wears normal clothing and has a normal job, I know that the eccentric, awkward child who loved to wear over-sized men’s suits in junior high is still [...]

Hey Lady, Quit Acting Like An Insecure Hot Mess

9 Comments 11 February 2014

I rarely talking about dating on this blog (I used to more often when I was an early twenty-something hot, steamin’ pile o’ mess and dated a bunch of douchebags), but I don’t pretend that I know any more than anyone else about anything in life. We bloggers sometimes get all high and mighty about [...]
