OK. Yes. There is a ton of snow. In fact, it just won’t stop snowing. Shoes? What are those? I only wear boots. I can barely remember a time when I actually left my apartment and went to work on a Monday morning. But, I kind of like this crazy weather! Why? People actually talk to […]

2014 in review

Wow I feel really guilty, I haven’t posted on this blog in ages. WordPress helpfully reminded me of my slackerhood with this annual report they put together.

Discount Signage

I came across these two signs at TJ Maxx today and although I’m sure they were mass produced in a factory somewhere, I actually really feel like both signs exemplify how I try to live my life. So of course I took a shady picture (super bad quality unfortunately) and am rewriting here. I don’t […]

I got a text message the other day. It read: “Help” “Hello!” I responded with: “Who is this?” And that was the end of that very odd conversation. I’m still not sure if I should be disturbed or not. I also still have no idea who it was.
