I apologize to non-avid tennis-fans, that you have to read about tennis YET AGAIN because that is all I seem to be able to write about anymore (conveniently not the case when I sit down to work on my thesis, which is also about tennis. Funny how that happens), but I have life lessons to share. JUST fyi, I had … Continue reading Pride comes before the fall
I’m seeing if I can beat the clock for this post because I have ELEVEN minutes before my computer restarts for automatic updates, WHICH, by the way, I’m highly curious why this is the third time in two days it’s doing this. Really?? I think it’s just to annoy me. I have two observations to … Continue reading Caffeine + Dessert > (and/or better than) Sleep + Carbs
I disappeared for a while, and I apologize to my loyal fans who actually noticed (I heart you). What had happened was…I had to present some thesis material at my writing workshop, so I abandoned blogging in lieu of thesis work (what? where are my priorities! I know), and then I went out of town, … Continue reading Open letter to a D-bag
This post has nothing to do with the Super Bowl.

But snow it did, perhaps not six inches, but enough to bless the children with a snow … Continue reading Run, Forest. Run.
I thought this was funny, and also demonstrative of my life (i.e. it’s embarrassing)- Okay, some background information. When I was learning to play tennis, I had a knack for hitting balls with the frame of my racquet rather than, say, the strings–a skill that I still possess. One day after I finished a private lesson with my friend, a lesson … Continue reading A funny story
I feel like I’ve been hit by a bus. I caught the stomach bug yesterday and ended up in the ER…AGAIN…to get IV fluid. I don’t know how this keeps happening to me, but yesterday’s was the worst I’ve ever been. No doubt. I’m afraid that along with all my innards and my sanity, I may have … Continue reading A no-brainer day
I’ll take another moment to write another non-blog. After nearly 10 pages of thesising, I realized it was all crap and deleted it. Such is the story of my life…but my new page one is REALLY good! Yesterday was my mini-me’s 18th birthday. Mini-me is a girl whose family used to live across the street from … Continue reading Artifical dancing and knee-high socks
