Both the left and the right are firing off misstatements about the second amendment. It's time for this to stop. Tanks.Read More
Aside from a Y-chromosome, I feel like a pretty stereotypical mother. You know, I have a baby and now I’m all like “I should just slow cook everything.” The problem is that slow cooking is only easier in theory. For, today, as I quelled my baby in one arm and ground whole, fresh spices with mortar and pestle with the other arm, I realized something...Read More
The wife and I are both working part time. Instead of one of us staying home, or sending our child to daycare, we take turns watching the baby. So, while Wini works Monday through Wednesday, I strap the baby to my chest with one of them hippy wraps, and hang out in town.
One of my regular stops, of course, is the Florian’s Coffee bike...Read More
I'm sure we all know the reasons why infographics are beneficial/popular. In fact, at some point, you have undoubtedly come across some statistic boasting how much more quickly we receive data from images rather than from text. The problem is, most your infographics suck . . .
Recently, I was accused of loving condescension by a faceless interlocutor on Facebook. (I had written "I fear you misunderstand" to something which, I fear, he had misunderstood.) This, I suppose, comes as particularly funny to me now that I live in another country—one in whose native tongue I often errantly babble things such as "Oh, you cut the eyes. It looks good!", "Can you repeat that strawberry?", and "Yes, '12 Euro,' I said '2 Euro'." See, I find myself craving people not to whom I may condescend, but those who might divert me with interesting debate or conversation. But, until my French is good enough to speak with well-formed, thought provoking strawberries, I am at a loss.Read More
I am just as surprised as you are that I ended up with an Apple watch...Read More
Some of you know that I have a background in nutrition. More of you probably know of my love for grammar. As it turns out, these two ares of interest have a non-empty intersection.Read More
So, you might remember from my last blog post that I wrote some last-minute ad copy for a would-be employer. Well, apparently it was sufficient, for he responded by asking if I had any examples of website design. Now, website design is something which I can honestly say I've done a bit of...Read More
Hey! It turns out that I'm a freelance everything, everyone! Amidst training for an elementary algebra content writing position, I have to finish a (possibly reoccurring) gig wherein I write as an expert on prominent artists (In a test assignment I apparently beat out a bunch of people who are actually qualified to do things like, say for instance, write as an expert on prominent artists)...Read More
Some of you may have seen my cover-letter-by-way-of-infographic which I made in a bid for a position as a freelance infographic designer. The truth was, I had no real examples of infographics, although I was sure I could make them. So, I figured, why not make my cover letter the example. I didn't get the position, by the way. Perhaps it was because my only example of such work was, in fact, meta-such-work...Read More
