Tonight when I was driving home from my dead end retail job at 11pm I passed the on ramp for the interstate. I can not tell you how tempted I was to get on that interstate and just keep driving north. I don’t want to be here. The past few days I haven’t had to work — I haven’t had to do anything. So, I didn’t get out of bed until almost noon and when I finally got...

fishy: I haven’t watched So You Think You Can Dance for quite a while because it’s never up online BUT IT IS NOW AND OH MY GOD THIS. DANCE. IS. RIDICULOUS. I agree! I am so sad he got injured :( Did you know he is Canadian? They should be proud.
Even though I have more important and more immediate things to think about I have recently been giving some of my thought time to think about what Grad school options I might want to look into after my year in Japan teaching. Of course, this is kind of ridiculous because after a year I might be a ‘completely’ different person with different direction and different ideas… but of...

Yo siempre te recordaremos, Nicaragua.
My friend Carey posted this in a note he wrote on Facebook a while back. This is one of his experiences from our time in Nicaragua while we were studying abroad. I wanted to share it, it reminds me of some of my own experiences there, as well. It brings back the passion to do something but also the hopelessness of thinking that nothing can be done. You could call this an example of mental poverty,...

Yoani Sanchez, a Cuban blogger. This is my favorite blog to read, she writes about her life in Cuba and the many political issues of Cuba. She has been threatened and arrested for some of the things she has said in this blog, definitely something everyone should read.

I miss some people from high school.
I don’t know how it happened and I don’t know how to fix it but I am extremely dysfunctional. I used to be great at keeping in touch with people who I don’t see daily but since college I have let go of some really great friendships. On one note, I made a point of not visiting my hometown because I didn’t want to go home. I love my hometown because of the people, not my home...
