Be Sure to Wear Some Flowers In Your Hair…

Tonight, I flew into San Francisco for a Creating Balance in an Unjust World math conference. I am very excited to be here, but also feeling very strange about it. On the plane, after a very short nap, I woke up to tiny city lights below. I was very excited to see all those little …

It’s 2013

Snow in the Eastern Sierras

I start this year wishing I could extend the end of last year… the sights, sounds, passion, and beauty that permeated me so deeply. I hope this year brings me just as much happiness and fun. I hope that I can improve my health and find joy in the bigger things, not just the small …

Suffering, Hope & Accomplishment

“We define ourselves as a nation of immigrants – a nation that welcomes those willing to embrace America’s precepts. It doesn’t matter where you come from. What matters is that you believe in the ideals on which we were founded, that you believe all of us are equal,” he said. “In embracing America, you can …

Another Day, Another Year, Another Million Memories

Josef & I at Koji's for NYE

I started off working for a wedding invitation company, kept growing my wedding photography business, and ended up a math teacher at an all-girls charter high school. Kyle & I have grown as a couple and are very happy, we have taken some great vacations together, and …

Adjustments & Expectations

I started working at New Village this week! I am soooo happy! My colleagues are really amazing people, and I just love our Principal. He’s a really good person, and it’s so clear that he is not only great at his job, but loves it! This week was staff development week. We had 5 busy …

33, Overwhelmed and Hopeful

After Comic-Con, I had a hard time adjusting to my every day life again. It was so much fun and so surreal that I really didn’t want it to end. During the week, I worked hard on school; but, I still can’t keep up with the reading. I’m 5 chapters behind now. I hate this. …

I Can See Clearly, Now, How Broke I Am…

What a day! I had an eye exam and learned I have .75 prescript in my right eye and 1.0 in my left and astygmatism in one eye… so, 1st time ever… glasses and contacts (~ $500). Also, my last unemployment check arrived with the note (found on the EDD site online): Based on the …

Avatar and the Hurt Locker

Okay, I LOVED Avatar and I thought the Hurt Locker was just ok. Here are some observations from my point of view. Avatar Loved the story. I don’t care that its been told before. It needs to be told again and again over the course of generations in a way that appeals to younger minds. …

Oscars Countdown

Saw Crazy Heart tonight with Violet, Jason, Mike D, and Mike S. It was really good, but not really “best picture” worthy in my opinion. I did enjoy it though. It’s scary to think that people actually live like this – musicians, aging, touring, free booze, drinking more than living, falling so far down they …

Movie Night

So, I wanted to watch Julie and Juila, but instead, I watched 17 Again. It was super cute! I really enjoyed it. It’s not profound, but exactly as expected… still, fun and enjoyable! I really should be watching my remaining Oscar films not yet seen. Eeek… so many! In the next 18 days, I want …
