So, I recently read an article about shopping for bargain books online, and what it does to book retailers.

I’m guilty of both buying and selling from Half.com, and like […]

I’d like to thank the people today who took the time to say thank you to me, and to thank the people I forgot to thank. Thank you to the cashiers and the people who opened doors. Thank you to the people who stepped out of the way to let me pass, or even just […]

Like most web surfers, I have a few sites that I frequent that are all tips and advice driven.

There’s nothing like someone else’s filth to make you take a second look at how you live. I went today with my mom to help clean a newly-vacant apartment in our building.

Alright, I admittedly don’t read a lot of email forwards, but this one really hit home with me. So, I’m posting it here rather than forwarding it on; that way I can look back on it as much as I’d like as well. Wisdom to Live By 1. Take a 10-30 minute walk every day. […]

… since I posted, and I have so much to write about! I was able to visit SPJB in New York for the Thanksgiving holiday. His birthday conveniently falls around the same time, so with a little bit of a longer trip, I was able to see him for both the holiday and his birthday. […]
