Thanksgiving Dinner 2014
November 30th, 2014


This year, Thanksgiving was a small affair. I’ve been scrubbing my apartment all week in preperation for my move-out. Pretty much everyone is out of town this weekend, so it was just Merigan, Henry, and I. The food was delicious and the conversation even better. Even though it wasn’t with family, it felt like the perfect Thanksgiving.

Northbound JMT Hike Half Dome Without Permit
June 1st, 2014

I’ll be section hiking the John Muir Trail in September this year. I’ll be going northbound from Mammoth into Yosemite. My origin permit will be from Inyo National Forrest. I had a hard time finding accurate information about if I would be able to hike the Half-Dome cables route without a permit reservation (or walk-up permit). I emailed NPS to ask and they confirmed that NB JMT Hikers do NOT need a special permit to hike Half-Dome in 2014. Email correspondence below.

I’m experiencing some server issues. Everything should be back to normal soon, but in the meantime please forgive any misbehaving links, infinity loops, missing pictures, and other signs of the webpocalypse.

Papers About Women
March 15th, 2010

Finals week is upon us and I have finished my two papers in record time. I’m sharing them with you because I think one of them is informative and because the other one was just a hoot to write.

1) Childbirth in American Hospitals
I explore the ways in which the American medical system submits women to unnecessary health risks during delivery in the name of convenience.

2) Analysis of Luce Irigaray
I summarize the work of bat-shit crazy (and eventually lovable) feminist theorist, Luce Irigaray, and offer my own criticisms on her labia-obsessed essentialism. Worth a read. Not suitable for small children.

goodbye shoes
July 30th, 2009

This is a really sad day. My favorite, fashionable shoes have departed from this world. (That tan area use to be 3/4 inch wedge heel.) I have to buy some emergency sneakers on the walk to work, lest I be eternally barefoot. It’s probably for the best though. All this summer rain has made them smell like burning acid.

harry potter six
July 15th, 2009

i’m pretty sure 80% of the movie was completely fabricated, but i am 100% okay with that, because, well, i heard there is already a book or something. for me, this movie is like an awesome fan fiction supplement that provides all the cool moments that happened between the lines and none of the moments that actually happened. aka the best.

otherwise, i laughed, i cringed, i cried, and i noticed four visual effects that stuck out like an unshaded primitive.

(oh, and the felix felicis scene might be my favorite in all harry potter history ever. and also i love lav-lav.)

dude: i don’t have any muggle money
