Emojiary

By

“The 2-second daily diary.” Emojiary is this really promising sounding app, that as far as 2014, existed – but no longer does!  The site exists, but doesn’t work anymore. Reviews and tech articles exist surrounding the app, but it Emojiary is a ghost – an app with so much potential, that I would like to use, that no longer does! With Emojiary, each day, you could write a simple log of how you feel: I imagine the diary above goes as such: Thursday – sleepy and not getting out of bed Wednesday – blindfolded and surprised with a gift of a beautiful new dress. I’m … Read More

By

My husband and I did not know if we make would it through our first year of marriage. We still are not there a full year. Our first year anniversary will hit March 21, 2017.

Banana Diet

By

WHY ARE YOU ON A BANANA DIET?! That sounds… bananas! Technically, I am on Raw Till 4. Why Raw Till 4? Because Shakeology and all those other diets prescribed by companies are mostly looking to make a profit. They are effective, but I just don’t like the idea of purchasing their products every week. I want something easy, sustainable, unprocessed, and un-manufactured. Benefits of Raw Till 4 High energy – unlike low-carb diets that have left me feeling sluggish, bananas are a well known source of energy, so you are able to complete workouts as per the usual. Eat as … Read More

A Break from New York City

By

Today I went left along the levee during my morning jog. Sandy headed out earlier, as I recycled and tossed the unwrappings of Christmas present the day before. He went straight across, off the path, something I think infrequently done. When there are no signs to tell us what not to do we have to make assumptions as to how we are doing wrong, and heading off the jogging path can seem a hazard or at least a convenience walking across grass soaked with a long, gray morning mist. He heads off to explore. I jog and think of the … Read More

Sandy summited, while just 400 meters below the summit I lay in a fetal position, a pile of tiny volcanic rock grating across my skin as I prayed that sleep would help me get down the summit without the use of emergency services.

Milk Tea and Camping in Hakone

By

Beverage of choice: sweetened tea with milk Either served cold in a paper carton from Lipton at 100 yen from any convenience store or so hot in a can from a vending machine that I play hot potato till I can find a high enough place to set it down without my heavy backpack causing me to perform a serious squat exercise in returning to standing position. I walk enough to avoid added exercise in my daily routine. Fuck stairs. Where are the escalators? In the night, about 9:30p, we were woken by voices. Sandy quickly grabbed the blanket and … Read More
