08. The Girls, Emma Cline (July 24) And then I didn’t read or listen to another book until July. Seriously, I don’t even remember what I was doing in that time. My guess? My in-laws came to visit us here in Tokyo in May, and I was hell-bent on learning as much Japanese as I possibly […]

07. The Drowned World, J.G. Ballard (March 18) THIS. THIS is how far behind I am right now. I’m posting a blog about a book I finished in March. Apologies. I picked up this book while we were visiting my in-laws in the UK last year. I think I just liked the cover. The colors grabbed me, […]

I’m not sure if I’ve talked about nail polish before on the blog. Maybe it requires a bit of a back story. I specifically remember the day I started biting my nails. It was in the 4th grade, and I had to answer a question on the board at school. I think it was math […]

I tried THINX period underwear (TMI warning: lady blood)

… and I love them. But I think there may be a caveat to this for other women. Even though I know I’m already being super-green by not having my own kids, I try to do whatever I can to make as little waste as possible in my daily life. I always use reusable shopping […]
