Birthday Blogging

Once again, I’ve done a little bit of a disappearing act from these pages. If you’re one of my small handful of readers, I greatly apologize! While I always hesitate to describe my life as “hectic” (because there’s always someone way busier than I am), it hasn’t exactly been a slow couple of months. Recently, […]

The Netflix Book Club

Data is beautiful. Not only do I subscribe to a subreddit with that title in which users literally share graphs and beautiful images of data that they have collected in really neat ways, but I’ve also been learning more about the concept of data gathering, mining, warehousing, and so much more in my Database Management & […]

The Mix Tape, Volume II

Back in September, I put together a post listing fifteen songs that are dear to my heart. I thought of maybe doing a regular #MusicMonday segment weekly if it proved popular, but the list never really seemed to resonate with anyone other than myself. That’s totally okay though: the entire idea was to share music […]

The Thief of Joy

I feel like I’ve lived my entire life comparing myself to other people. In fact, one of my personal theme songs from my mid-twenties was a pop-punk ballad from emo-centric band Fall Out Boy that contains the prominent lyric, “Half dead from comparing myself to everyone else around me” (oooooh, so much ANGST!). And Mondays are the […]

April Update

It has almost been a month since my last post. I’m aware of that and I apologize. I also apologize that this first post you’re about to read after such a good length of time is bullet-style if you’re not into that kind of thing. I’ve actually tried writing a few different times and actually […]

New Year Review: 2016 Has No Chill!

By now, it goes without saying that 2016 was a pretty chaotic year. We endured what was arguably the most insane election in United States history. Elsewhere in the world, Britain has officially become divided while atrocities in places like Aleppo are at an almost apocalyptic level. There were a lot of other events that made […]

The ‘Gilmore Girls’ Are Gorgeous As Ever

The Gilmore Girls are back! The world was finally invited back to the charming town of Stars Hollow yesterday as we marked the premiere of Netflix’s latest revival, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, the follow-up to the WB Network’s quirky dramedy that aired from 2000-2007. It has been nearly a decade since the original […]

My Thanksgiving Top Ten!

Ahhh… Thanksgiving. One of my favorite holidays (if not my absolute favorite holiday) is fast approaching. Can you really blame me? I’m one of those people who firmly believes that getting to enjoy good food is one of the best experiences life has to offer! Anyone could probably tell just by taking one look at me! […]

What Would Buffy Do?

I’ve been trying to find the words to make sense of this election since I saw the results this morning. The first thing I did was begin to compose a lengthy Facebook post defending my vote and why I did it. I ultimately thought better of this course of action. Not just because I have […]

October Update

I haven’t updated this space in over a month. Normally when a blog or website of mine has gone over a month without an update, it’s probably because I’m questioning whether or not the blog or website is even a good idea anymore because I’ve run out of interesting things to write about and nobody […]
