A Somewhat Ridiculous Round-Up of Writing Promptsfeatured

I’ve been collecting writing prompts…at least since middle school. At the moment, I have literally thousands of writing prompts—everything from fiction prompts like “Write a story about…” to blog and journaling prompts like “What’s in your dream home?” And they’re scattered all over—in my Bookmarks folder, on Pinterest, in my email, somewhere in my hard Read more

Summer 2017featured

So, here’s the thing. A few weeks ago, I got a spurt of inspiration to do…something…anything…creative and new and different. Unfortunately, I was in the middle of my workday, and as much as I’d like to perpetuate the myth that freelancers always work completely on their own schedules and can follow such whims…well, at least Read more

What I Do When I Walk My Dog (part 2)featured

More podcasts! Oh, I wasn’t close to done last week. Planet Money This is an NPR show so you might already have heard it on your radio. Episodes are usually pretty short (around 20 minutes) and focused on some aspect of the economy. They’ll do things like actually set up an offshore bank account to Read more

Shop Local San Diego: City Centerfeatured

Let’s go shopping! San Diego’s “city center,” roughly bounded by the harbor to the south, I-5 to the west, I-8 to the north, and I-15 to the east, includes the downtown area (which itself is broken into several distinct neighborhoods), Little Italy, Old Town, Mission Hills, and all the areas around Balboa Park. These neighborhoods Read more

What I Do When I Walk My Dogfeatured

I listen to podcasts. We go out, she sniffs all her bushes and pees on stuff and I’m constantly fiddling with my earbuds. I listen to a ton of podcasts. It’s a little ridiculous. So ridiculous, I’m splitting this post into two parts. I’d like to be hipster and pretend I’ve been listening them before Read more

Dear High School Graduate…featured

I have a cousin who graduated from high school over Memorial Day Weekend. This post isn’t necessarily for her, because she’s smart and active and kind and beautiful and will absolutely crush it at college. This is for 18-year-old Allison, more than anything, and for anyone else wondering what lies ahead in the next four Read more

Photo Challenge May 2017: Look Upfeatured

I do this thing, when I’m trying to get certain photos for a theme or prompt or challenge, where I think ahead about possible opportunities to get cool shots.

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
