I Dug A Hole (Or Yard Work Is Hard And Everything Hurts)

A friend recently asked me why I haven’t included joining a gym as part of my “trying new hobbies” blog. So let me be clear, for everyone who doesn’t know me (and probably those who do as well) – I do not consider working out a hobby. Why, you may ask? BECAUSE EXERCISE IS TORTURE.…… Continue reading I Dug A Hole (Or Yard Work Is Hard And Everything Hurts)

Making Shakshuka (Or Cooking For Normal People Who Are Lazy And Work All Day)

Shakshuka (also known as eggs poached in tomatoes) is a way of cooking that makes you sound sophisticated and more worldly than you actually are. It’s my favorite because you really only need two ingredients and a pan, but Adam will still find it impressive. Bonus points if (by some miracle) you have bread in…… Continue reading Making Shakshuka (Or Cooking For Normal People Who Are Lazy And Work All Day)

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)
