Web Miscellany: Compilation #98

Hello, friend! How are you? Well, one month into my new job, I just helped my employer pass our most recent external audit. It was both stressful and exhilarating, and involved a 5am - 2pm workday to accommodate the Eastern time schedule. This meant afternoons were spent in a frenzied state of sewing madness, with...

Web Miscellany: Compilation #97

Hello, friend! How are you? After however long into this mess we are now, the pandemic is beginning to feel a bit lonely and listless. I spent my twenties building up habits for success and inner peace, many of which has slowly dwindled away over the last year. I feel like it's time to rebuild... Continue Reading →

Web Miscellany: Compilation #96

Hello, friend! How are you? Frankly, I'm exhausted, and that's all. Life is going alright: I'm three weeks deep at a great new job and my East Coast colleagues are giving me a tiny taste of autumn with their mustard- and rust-colored sweaters. (I can almost smell the cinnamon and pumpkin spice through the screen!)... Continue Reading →

Web Miscellany: Compilation #95

Hello, friend! How are you? I am pooped. I started a new job this week, and it has been fantastic! But, I am exhausted. I had over a dozen video meet-and-greets (which, as an introvert, can be quite exhausting), lots of reading, and even a 5am meeting. I don't even have the energy to consider... Continue Reading →

Hello, friend! What have you been up to this week? How are you doing? Yesterday was my last day at my job, and I'm excited to start at my new opportunity on Monday! Last weekend, I sifted through old photos and news paper clippings of my grandmother's family with my mom. In addition to childhood... Continue Reading →

Web Miscellany: Compilation #93

Hello, friend! What have you been up to this week? How are you doing? I'm currently house-sitting for a needy dog to whom I'm highly allergic, so good times. The home we're in has a smart TV, so we're making a game of shouting random things in the living room: vegan cheese, Joe Biden's britches,... Continue Reading →

Web Miscellany: Compilation #92

Hello, friend! What have you been up to this week? How are you doing? Work has been pretty overwhelming. My team lost a member last week, we're in the final push for our department's annual objective, and I've been tasked with tying up loose ends before my departure. I feel like I'm making huge strides... Continue Reading →

Web Miscellany: Compilation #91

Hello, friend! What have you been up to this week? How are you doing? The news out of Afghanistan is just heartbreaking. My family has volunteered with a local nonprofit that helps refugees acclimate to their new life for the last decade, I participated in the "Quilts for Kosovo" project in the late 90s, and... Continue Reading →

Web Miscellany: Compilation #90

Hello, friend! What have you been up to this week? How are you doing? We finally were able to get a mold remediation company out and what we though to be two minor sink pipe leaks turned out to be three separate areas of black mold due to a poorly-installed A/C unit, and several eroded... Continue Reading →

Web Miscellany: Compilation #89

Hello, friend! What have you been up to this week? How are you doing? I attended my aunt's funeral via a YouTube live-stream due to a local breakout of the covid-19 delta variant, and I have such mixed feelings about the experience. It was nice, however, to see visiting family members, though the interactions remained... Continue Reading →

Web Miscellany: Compilation #88

Hello, friend! What have you been up to this week? How are you doing? Over the last week: enjoyed plenty of rain (and nickle-sized hail), I saved a 3-week old white-winged dove with my partner (shutout to Liberty Wildlife Rescue!), sewed up the cutest little romper for my niece, almost perfected my pho recipe (Vietnamese...

Hello, friend! What have you been up to this week? How are you doing? It has been raining in Phoenix, which we have needed desperately following a record-dry year. Having been born and raised here, I can confidently saw that the only two things I don't hate about the Valley of the Sun are the... Continue Reading →

Web Miscellany: Compilation #86

Hello, friend! What have you been up to this week? How are you doing? Austin Kleon shared in his newsletter yesterday that the year is 52% over. Is the year half-full or half-empty? I feel like I'm feverishly treading water and getting nowhere; yet, on the other, maybe I'm just allocating my time to current... Continue Reading →

Web Miscellany: Compilation #85

Hello, friend! Are you having a good day? Awesome. Just so you know, some kids refer to the 90s as the late 1900's. You're welcome. What have you been up to this week? How are you doing? This week, my aunt passed away and my sister came home to visit for the first time since... Continue Reading →

Web Miscellany: Compilation #84

Hello, friend! How are you? What have you been up to as of late? A lot has happened since I last checked in and this work-in-progress log-of-life post is now outdated. Oh well! It has been a hectic month with health, work, and family, but I do have good news. Recent testing has evidenced that... Continue Reading →
