Q&A

I was recently contacted by a student from my alma mater, Haverford College, who asked if I would be willing to participate in a series of Q&A about my career and the journey from HC to where I am now. Of course I said yes! I loved loved loved my time spent at Haverford. I […]

Dating Files #20

One from the files. Last year I went on vacation and (naturally) started texting with a cute boy while away. I met him on OKC (where else) and we’d started chatting. His profile had a picture of him walking away from the camera, and when I asked him why he didn’t have a picture of […]

The internet is ruining my dating life

This: http://thoughtcatalog.com/anna-goldfarb/2013/12/8-ways-the-internet-cell-phones-and-social-media-have-ruined-dating/ I will admit, I have been known to screen grab some text exchanges with exes, before I delete their info from my phone. Those texts are the modern-day version of love letters. Which is kind of hilarious, and sad, all at the same time. Instead of a beautifully thought-out and written yellowing letter, […]

Dating Files #12.1

I think I hit publish on my last post too soon. Apparently YP didn’t like my rejecting him. This is one of many reasons why I really, really don’t like online dating. *Edit: I had a screenshot of our conversation up, but decided to take it down. If you REALLY MUST KNOW what he wrote […]

Dating Files #12

“YP” messaged me early in the year. His email stood out because he seemed to genuinely want to get to know me as a friend first, and then see if we might be (romantically) compatible later on. It is not the easiest thing in the world to make new friends at this point in my […]

Redux Pt 2

Remember Messy Eater? He’s baaaaaack! And now he’s stalking my LinkedIn account! I opened up my ‘who’s viewed me’ tab to see if I’d gotten any hits after one or two networking events earlier in the week. First person on the list: ME. Oh hai. You’re a VP now? Nope, still not interested in dating […]

Redux

I went out with ME several years ago. We met for lunch and although I don’t remember much about the date itself, I do recall these things: 1. He couldn’t find parking and kept circling by me. 2. He was a sloppy, messy eater (and he tucked his napkin into his shirt collar). 3. He […]

8 Awkward Dating Moments

For those of you who might not be in the know about all things online dating related, there are many more sites out there than just eHarmony and Match.com [full disclosure, I’ve been on Match in the past but not eHarmony since I’m way too lazy to fill out all those questions]. For example, I’m […]

True Story

When I was a senior in college, I applied for a puppeteering job. [Is puppeteering even a word? Well, it is now]. I made it to second round interviews and things were going swimmingly. Until my interviewer asked me how tall I was. I was too short to be a puppeteer. It was heartbreaking. They […]

Blast from the Past

I came across an old journal of mine yesterday while cleaning. This is exactly why I love keeping my journals– the chance to read old gems like the following: February 24, 1992 Dear [inappropriate horse’s name]*, Sorry for having left you for such a long time. The next few months will be so exciting! I […]
