Paradise. GRADUATE SCHOOL ALMOST KILLED ME BUT I SURVIVED. Whoosh, that was a stressful couple of weeks. Two of my first real graduate philosophy papers coming due (my Purdue papers didn't count because they hardcore sucked) and a big trip to California and Colorado for work collided into a stressful last couple of weeks. But… Continue reading At the moment 6.8.18

As I dragged my tired butt out of bed at 5am this morning to get in a 30-minute sweat-fest before work, I realized how long it's been since I was in a workout groove. I haven't worked out consistently in months, which is a huge aberration from my norm. I love working out. It makes… Continue reading When self-care sucks
Well, last night I experienced quite the emotional rollercoaster. Without going into too many uninteresting details, I turned in a small assignment for a philosophy class and thought I got a negative or dismissive response to my work from the professor. While I had felt good about what I submitted, even starting to feel like… Continue reading Realizing and tackling my knee-jerk self-doubt
It's finally here! Our little passion project has officially come to life. After publishing my book, I was considering starting a podcast to explore the themes of authenticity in a more dynamic and informal way. The topic of authenticity is so broad and so rich, and I felt like, even after writing almost 300 pages… Continue reading A podcast baby is born!
I've been thinking a lot about mediocrity. Partly, this is because I'm finding myself to be firmly located in the middle portion of the bell curve regarding something for which achieving excellence would mean a great deal to me. Turns out, my perfectionist nature does not take well to mediocrity. (Who saw that coming?!) If… Continue reading In praise of mediocrity
I recently changed phones and even though technology is amazing and the transfer of data was surprisingly effective (maybe TOO effective... #googleisalwayswatching), my Doggcatcher podcast app and my podcast streams did not survive the switch. I got to spend a delightful few minutes re-subscribing to my favorite podcasts, and thought I would add a list… Continue reading My favorite podcasts for the thinking life

Food Styling: Alison Attenborough. Prop styling: Kalen Kaminski. I saw this recipe on Pinterest over two years ago and have been saving my parmesan rinds ever… Continue reading Broth, two years in the making
1. I have a very love/hate relationship with Hawaii, and lately it's been mostly of the "hate" variety. Yesterday something softened in me, though, and I felt a huge swell of affection and reverence for this place. Who knows what is noodling around in the subconscious part of my brain, but it's a relief not… Continue reading At the moment… 3/8/2018
I am super emotional. I feel all the things all the time, whether or not those feelings are mine alone or are feelings I have absorbed from someone near me. (I have a love/hate relationship with that part.) One of the big projects or efforts in my life is to find healthy ways to deal… Continue reading Emotions and blame
