Do poor, desperate losers need love too?

The other day I missed my train because I was having a conversation with a stranger about the universe (basically). More specifically, we started out discussing food stamps and people who abuse the system and end up buying cigarettes and beer with their food stamp money and don’t throw their cigarettes in the trash instead…

The theme is: Vegan

I was having a conversation recently with this girl I’m friends with In Real Life. About being vegans. Just a couple of vegans (kinda) talking about being vegans. I’ve thought about this and I don’t think that vegans talk especially extensively about being vegan as humans generally just talk about food a lot. But since…

Only the unloved hate. A story about parking in downtown Boston. And more.

Yesterday took a toll on me, as I found myself victim to scheduling setbacks, miscommunications and emotional let downs—my mood found itself compromised with each passing moment. And it was a moment to moment thing—each giving into the surge of pandemonium that was collecting. Yes pandemonium. And hate. I usually have no problems finding parking…

Stars and Stripes AKA Dreaming of 2morro

I think there comes a point in everyone’s life where they think to themselves:  “I want to farm blueberries forever” “I will stand in a busy street and play a one string-ed instrument. Forever” “I will dress up like a clown and be a clown for the rest of my life”  This is real life….

Antidisestablishmentarianism, 2KOOL4SKOOL

When I went to college for the first time, I was sorely—dramatically disappointed. In everything—the system, the professors, the infrastructure, the people that went. It was very difficult to make friends because I was full of hate—something I thought was very unfair at the time. It was pandemonium. The thing is, I couldn’t have been…

JU Get ET? Tao. Pow. Love.

  I mean… Yes. I’ve done the Forum and the Advanced Course which are two seminars provided by Landmark (in exchange for money) and I feel pretty good. It was like an integration, communication overhaul. I’ve learned the following things about myself: I’m a lot more selfish (entitled, manipulative, self absorbed—but you already gathered that…

State of Greece

I’m in greece where trash is literally flooding the streets. Disposal workers are on strike. Busses and trains are off and on because public transport workers are on strike. My cousin’s six year old is home from school because the elementary school teachers are on strike. Junior high and high school students will stay home…

End of ze world?

I’ve been getting frustrated with the media. I use the term loosely of course, the “media” is every venue which preaches any “world is coming to an end” horror story. I have become incredibly optimistic about the future. Reasons for this: 1. Non financial companies are doing quite well. Just as any person would, they…

Hurricane Irene

There’s nothing like being heartbroken and mad that someone you really didn’t want to leave does and goes to New York. Forever. And then having a hurricane named after you. A highly publicized hurricane that’s all over the radio, news and internet. So glorious it is to know that my name was constantly repeated for…

Reasons why I don’t go to the dentist and other scare tactics

When I was six I used to go to the dentist. Pretty regularly. But things were different then. Then, I used to get a hot pink toothbrush and bring it home with a tiny tube of cotton candy flavored toothpaste that fit expertly in my hands. Sometimes I got stickers too, it was a good…
