Book Club Minutes: Meeting #3 (Or When Did Everyone Get So Busy?)

So one of the worst thing about being in your mid-20s is that everyone is suddenly so dang busy! Now I assume that people are busy at other ages too but since I’ve only been around for 27 years, I can only speak to those 27 and personally, this is the busiest I’ve ever been.…… Continue reading Book Club Minutes: Meeting #3 (Or When Did Everyone Get So Busy?)

Sewing For Newbies (Or Why You Should Just Suck It Up And Take A Class)

So you guys. The reason why I have yet again broken my “post once per week” rule (can it really be a rule if you’ve never once followed it?), is because I wanted to wait and tell you about a new adventure after I’m starting. I’m taking a sewing class! In the past, I have typically…… Continue reading Sewing For Newbies (Or Why You Should Just Suck It Up And Take A Class)

Let There Be Life (Or How To Feed Yourself And Not Kill Things)

So today we’re starting on another new adventure – gardening! Like a lot of what I write about on here, gardening isn’t exactly a new hobby. In fact, I’ve had some semblance of a garden at every place I’ve lived in since college, including my adorable little container box herb garden which was the only…… Continue reading Let There Be Life (Or How To Feed Yourself And Not Kill Things)

Book Club Minutes: Meeting #2 (Or Why Adam Is No Longer Allowed To Eavesdrop On Meetings)

We held our 2nd meeting of The 52240 this past weekend, which means I can officially claim that I have stuck with the same hobby for 2 months! (It helps that said hobby only happens once a month, but a win is a win. It counts.) Book Club Minutes: Meeting #2 Sunday, February 26th, 12:00pm General…… Continue reading Book Club Minutes: Meeting #2 (Or Why Adam Is No Longer Allowed To Eavesdrop On Meetings)

Life Is In The Little Things (Or Why All The People At The Park Think I’m A Giant Weirdo)

In which I pretend to be a serious photography hobbiest and attempt to only take photos of texture. Series 1: The Neighbah-hood Pronounced as such because my New England roots are having a resurgence of sorts. This first series of photos was taken during a 70-degree walk around the cul de sac. (I know some people…… Continue reading Life Is In The Little Things (Or Why All The People At The Park Think I’m A Giant Weirdo)

On The Tribulations Of ‘Wanting’ (Or Why I Decided To Stop Worrying And Do What I Love)

On The Perception of Time One of my least favorite parts of being an adult is the perception of time. Remember when you were a kid and waiting 5 minutes was the equivalent of cruel and unusual punishment according to the Kids’ Principles of Fun? Well now, 4 hours free in the evening somehow isn’t…… Continue reading On The Tribulations Of ‘Wanting’ (Or Why I Decided To Stop Worrying And Do What I Love)

Regarding The Culinary Arts (In Which I Cook Things And Pretend To Be A Food Photographer)

So now that I no longer need to travel for work quite so frequently, I’m actually looking forward to cooking at home. This is proving to be easier said than done. Reasons Cooking is Hard at My House Ingredients. I’m really bad at food shopping without a list or without an idea of what I’m…… Continue reading Regarding The Culinary Arts (In Which I Cook Things And Pretend To Be A Food Photographer)
