Crow and Cake

Before I tell you all about my week – I feel compelled to describe my current surroundings to you. It’s a Sunday morning. My supposed “drunkard” neighbors (that was gossip from the old man down the street who apparently watches everyone all day) are in the back yard in Hawaiian-looking getups, not yet arguing but [...]

Thank You For My Sanity

I have the best coworkers. I know a lot of them won’t read this – but I really should say “Thank you” more. Sometimes the only thing that gets me through a rough day at work is the laughter and comradery that we share.  I can be dealing with a particularly difficult project and all [...]

I Chip You Not, I Gave it a Shot

This week was a bit of a doozy. I took Thursday and Friday off of work and, very much like being on winter break when I was in school, it feels like I’ve forgotten what day it is. Time seems to have melted together for me and I’m not really hating it. I can tell [...]

Mugsy and my “Idea Guy” friend AJ

“Think Big. Dream Big.” – I have a T-shirt from my alma mater with that slogan on it, to match the Dream Big chairs we had on campus. In my four years at High Point University, I met some great people with great minds and great big dreams. One of those people is my friend [...]

I was an emotional wreck, swinging through moods faster than Tarzan travels through the jungle on those vines of his. I was insecure, irritable, I cried 5 separate times (one of which was in [...]

The Canadian has Arrived

Hi Friends! If you’ve been with me for a while, you know that I went to Peru last May (and it was [Inca]redible – see what I did there?) and while there met some really cool people. Then in July, I went to visit one of the said people and in the process went to [...]

Gal Friends, Dude Friends, Old Friends, New Friends

I felt like I was living in my own version of Dr. Seuss’ One Fish, Two Fish this weekend. I was SO social which, for me, was exhilarating but exhausting. My body is physically sore from being so outgoing for so many days in a row (though, maybe that is from the new workouts I [...]

Peas Out, Cub Scout

Believe it or not, as you are reading this, I am out of the country. Yes, again. Peace out, USA. Two months short of a year since my last excursion outside of the US, I’m at it again, crossing borders.  This time I’m flying across the pond with a bit more luggage in tow. My [...]
