Holiday Depression on Holidays I Confuse for Memorial Day

2 Comments 03 September 2013

Yesterday I was in a funk and I couldn’t figure out why. Then it dawned on me: It’s a holiday! Even though Labor Day is one of those holidays that, sadly, had little impact on me growing up other than it meant a day off from school, it still sent me into an aimless walkabout [...]

Remembering the Past In Order to Truly Appreciate the Present

No Comments 09 July 2012

I wrote this last month while visiting home. It was a difficult one to write.

No Comments 11 February 2012

I secretly love reading self-help articles written by people who have no formal training in telling you how to live your life.

Your Life in a Box Full of Smushed Candy

11 Comments 27 May 2011

Moms are awesome! Want to know why? Because they send you an Easter day care package four weeks later with stuff like this in it: A 2001 Engagement calendar. Me: “Mom, why did you send me a calendar from ten years ago?” Mom: “Because it’s a very special year. The year you graduated high school.” [...]
