Austin’s Best Restaurants That Don’t Cost an Arm and a Leg

I’ve seen a number of Austin restaurant “best of” lists over the past few weeks, and I don’t know about you, but they frustrate me. Most of the restaurants listed are expensive, at least in Austin standards. They’re the sort of places I can only afford to eat at once or twice a year. Though [...]

The Ten Coolest Things That Happened in Austin in 2013

6 Comments 13 December 2013

It’s that time of year again- time where everyone makes butt-loads of year-end lists.

Why the Internet Can Be One Giant Awesome Place

10 Comments 04 November 2013

Hannah, Colin and The Orange Van Having a blog can be equal parts inspiring and debilitating. Debilitating may sound a little over-dramatic, but for anyone who spends several hours on the computer a day, you may relate to the physical and mental strain the Internet cacophony and the computer screen glow can cause. Bad posture, [...]

1 Comment 01 November 2013

I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween! I dressed up as Navin R. Johnson (Steve Martin) from The Jerk. It’s my #4 favorite movie of all time. I’ll be honest- I enjoyed walking around with my pants around my ankles all night. What did you dress up as this Halloween?
