A new way to fight the anxiety that keeps me up at night:

March 11, 2017


Reading. I’ve been able to MOSTLY get a hold on the side-effect anxiety that I’ve been experiencing. Once I realized it was just a side effect and not really something in my own mind, it was a lot easier to push the ‘every single way you could die on your honeymoon‘ thoughts out of my […]

TMI warning: fighting flatulence

January 14, 2017


I’m lactose-intolerant. I ¬†know this, my readers know this, and my husband DEFINITELY knows this. And lately (last year, all years since we moved here) I’ve really let myself go in terms of foods I should be avoiding but don’t because they taste good. I’ll usually allow myself to have pizza. I prefer to never […]

I thought I was having a mid-life crisis. It turns out it might just be side effects of my birth-control pills. Or other medication.

October 23, 2016


I’ve actually been wanting to write about what’s been going on for a while, but I wasn’t really sure how to talk about it, or what to do about it, really. So I’m going to try my best to explain what the hell has been going on. For the past year or so, at least […]

My trip to England and Germany was a great reminder that I’m gluten- and lactose- intolerant

February 26, 2016


Seriously. I know I have to write about our trip and add photos, and I’ll get to that. When we got to England on our first evening, after almost 24 hours of traveling, the first thing I did was eat a plate of cheese. A plate. Of different, beautiful, English cheeses. I did it even […]

We Went to Thailand! 2/3: Koh Tao

January 20, 2016


We took a shuttle to the bus station, and took a bus to Surat Thani town, where we boarded a ferry that would take us to Koh Tao. That morning, we’d had our last lunch at 6am at the lovely Tree House hotel, and then said our goodbyes. We were pretty sad to leave the […]

New Year, New Goals

January 5, 2016


When I look at the list of things I wanted to accomplish in 2015, I see some high expectations and a very rosy idea of what lay ahead. A year later, I am feeling far more pragmatic and have a better understanding of the amount of free time I actually have. Last year, I wanted […]

Japan: the only place where my un-tanned legs are totally cool in summer (that I know of so far)

July 29, 2015


If I were in the states right now, I’d be afraid to wear shorts or a short skirt, because most people I know might comment on how pale I am, and how I need to get more sun. In general, I agree with that statement, and am working my hardest to get to a pool, […]
