  • On the Road Again!
    I’ve been back in the US for ~2 months now.  The transition from international man of mystery to domestic couch surfer has been less than inspiring.  Being back in Boston was great!  But, LA has felt twilight zone-ish.   For 13 months I didn't have a car.  It was refreshing living ... read more

    380 days and 22 countries later, back home in NYC. Murray Hill to be exact. And no boyfriend in sight. Not exactly how I envisioned the end of my Remote Year to go, but I guess it would have been a bit difficult if I had fallen madly in love ... read more

    This is starting to feel like when Buffy the Vampire Slayer went through its whole series finale and then they were like, “JK, you get more, even though we killed her.”I’m not even going to apologize for that spoiler alert because the show ended (for the second time) in 2003, and ... read more
