One of my least favorite parts of this whole internet culture that has risen up is it's really allowed use to see how dumb our friends are. I mean, I don't think any of us needed to know that, did we? I was living in blissful ignorance. Seeing them just once in a while. Cracking… Continue reading Google it, dummy.
Shortly before the turn of the millennium my grandmother had a stroke and couldn't live alone anymore. She lived in Virginia, as did three of her children. One other child lived in North Carolina. We lived in South Carolina. No one wanted to take care of her, really. Not more than stop in, sit on… Continue reading Magnet School
I graduated last month. Walked across the stage and all that. For the last year I've worked along side with a professor of mine, helping her with her research, adding to her database and then going back to analyze and code it. I've been in several of her courses and over the last couple of… Continue reading She Likes Me
I'm coming up on one year of living in Maryland, and that time has allowed me to think about the last three years I spent living in Hawaii.

Other things always came up. I don't know if… Continue reading Hitting the Open Road
Today is my 27th Birthday. I was going to do what I normally do which is let it slip by fairly uncelebrated, but be secretly pleased if anyone remembered. Sometimes I get a card. Often my parents forget, so it’s kind of better this way – but that’s not why I do what I do,… Continue reading Birthday Girl
I'm a Navy Brat and a Navy Wife. The term 'local' has never really been a term people have applied to me -- I finally got close during my high school years since my parents bought a house in Virginia Beach and had extended family there. Finally, I thought, this is home. This is where… Continue reading Here to Stay
I was raised by parents that taught me that one of the worst things I could do was air out our dirty laundry to outsiders. Sharing anything personal with others, even extended family or friends, was a huge no-no. Secrecy became a normal part of my life. This was partly because there were major parts… Continue reading Time to get Real
