Sometimes, You Just Gotta Be Outragedfeatured

When I was in junior high and my dad drove me to school, we listened to the local sports talk radio. A couple times a week, they had a regular guest who’d call in for 15-20 minute segment to basically shoot the shit about whatever was going on in the sports world. I distinctly remember Read more

My Existential Running Crisisfeatured

I ran a half marathon last weekend. It was, I’m a little surprised to say, my first half marathon since October 2014. I registered for the Beach & Bay Half way back in December because the early bird fee was relatively cheap. It was one of those “flat and fast” courses, along the Mission Beach Read more

Weekend List 5.12.17featured

So, this week — the past couple weeks — have been interesting. I feel like I’m in a major something with my business. I don’t know if it’s a transformation, a transition, a growth period, a rethinking or retooling, or what. I do know that I’ve been juggling all the “working in my business” tasks Read more

Recent-ish Book Reportfeatured

Let’s catch up on the book front. Around the end of 2016 and this year, I’ve been making even more of an effort to make time for reading every day. I moved the apps on my phone around so the Kindle app is ahead of Instagram and I’m trying to open that instead of Instagram Read more

Shop Local in San Diego: Coastal Editionfeatured

One of my ongoing, regular freelance assignments is this little column in the newspaper that profiles local businesses around the county. Which means, every week, I get to pick a neighborhood/city/region and highlight a locally-owned retail store. Luckily, San Diego County is massive, so there are a ridiculous number of options out there. (What’s challenging Read more

Weekend Listfeatured

Okay guys, I’m trying link round-ups (again) with a new format (again). Think of these as fun weekend to-do lists—stuff I’ve either watched, read, listened to, bought, etc. lately or stuff I want or plan on watching, reading, listening to, buying, etc. in the future. San Diego has rain in the forecast (again) this weekend Read more

On Startingfeatured

I plop to my butt in the snow and secure my boot in the binding. To get up, I do this awkward maneuver that involves pressing my hand down behind me and lurching forward with just enough momentum to stand up but not enough to fall on my face. I stand poised at the top, Read more

Moving Forwardfeatured

So it’s been a week-plus. For me, Monday was the first day that something didn’t bring me to tears, so, progress. The #BidenMemes have been helping. As well as Samantha Bee and Stephen Colbert and John Oliver. (ß that last one is fantastic because he actually gives some concrete examples of things we can do Read more

Now What?featured

I didn’t expect or want this post to be how I return to blogging, but here we are. Yesterday, I took a “mental health day” because I knew if I stayed home, I’d just spend the entire day watching the election results. I wasn’t worried about the outcome, I said, but about the potential backlash Read more
