2012 New Year’s Resolutions! Now With More Tech Support & Less Money!

Every New Year’s Day we invite all our friends to our house for our annual Book Exchange Party + Waffle Extravaganza. We take breakfast in our house very seriously. Another New Year’s tradition is setting impossible to achieve resolutions for myself. I think setting the bar really high helps me achieve a lot more things […]

All My Plans Go To Sh– Italy!

All My Plans Go To Sh– Italy!

I’M GOING TO ITALY! I have been saving up to study abroad in Italy for Fall semester all year. I didn’t want to even put “Semester in Florence” on my list of New Year’s Resolutions because I was so afraid I’d jinx myself. Today was the deadline to pay for the program or forfeit my […]

The Lurid Details Of My Only Handmade Mandate for 2011

Because, you know, it’s never too early to set yourself up for crushing failure, here are my initial expectations/rules for my ONLY HANDMADE IN 2011 Mandate: Unless I can figure out how to get a full-ride scholarship to an Italian school for shoemakers this year, I will not be getting new shoes.

New Year’s Resolutions! Now With Less Money And More 2011!

New Year’s Resolutions! Now With Less Money And More 2011!

What? It’s the New Year already? But I’m still trying to finish up last year’s resolutions! Although I had many successes in 2010, such as getting beekeeping legalized in Santa Monica, California and driving fewer than 5000 miles in my car, most of my leftover chores mocking me from my half-done Master List have to […]
