I fell in love with DC right around the time I realized I needed space from San Francisco. Driving to a liquor store with my boss and her mother. We were in Delaware when I decided to stay. It dawned on me that I hadn’t learned the things to see,... Continue reading

I finally went to see the Hide / Seek exhibit at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery this past weekend. The show has been up since the end of October, I’ve read and reposted news articles about the controversy around “A Fire in My Belly,” I’ve ended up at a dinner... Continue reading

As 2011 kicks into full swing, I’ve officially been calling DC home for going on seven months. Wow time flies when you’re crazy busy and loving (almost) every minute of it. But with a new year (and a new city) comes resolutions. I—for one, tho—am not a fan of resolutions:... Continue reading

I rang in 2010 with stars in my eyes and a girl with the crotch ripped from her pants. I dyed her arm purple that night thanks to my hair. A boy wore my jeans commando-style. And an amazing group of friends from all over California ran the streets of... Continue reading

Most people I know are forced to go rural—or worse yet, to the burbs—for the holidays. Me, I’m lucky enough to call San Francisco home. Or, well, I choose to call it home, despite my mother’s hopes that I will one day spend Christmas with her in some small redneck... Continue reading

The holiday season is officially off and running. Tons of food, Christmas trees galore, Menorah's filled with thin candles, holiday parties, frilly dresses, skinny ties. Shopping, family, plane tickets, plummeting temperatures, more shopping, more decorating--did you send out holiday cards yet?- and stress. Am I right? Let's make this easier,... Continue reading

I turned 26 last week. Old to some, young to others. I was ready for it. 25 was a hell of a year and I'm not so sad to see it come to a fabulous end. And trust, the end was fabulous. Still being relatively new to the area, and... Continue reading

I was reading Autostraddle (thanks to a friend's recommendation) earlier this morning and stumbled across one of their interns "Top 10 Albums You Can't Live Without" and it inspired me to write up my own list, except my list is more based in the 10 albums that changed my life.... Continue reading

The remnants of Halloween weekend still cling to my hair, my hands, my bedroom. Pieces of costume--ripped tights, worn flat heels, pink eye shadow dust--are left in little heaps and mounds waiting for me to go to sleep, wake up and put them away. I love Halloween. Always have. As... Continue reading

The weather was beautiful: Summer had finally reached San Francisco. The streets of the Mission emanating heat without the humidity of DC. The Blue House, my blue house, seemed to glow above it's white steps. The landlord repainted them last summer only for the hipsters downstairs in apartment 2 to... Continue reading

In the last 3 weeks I think I have sufficiently covered every single aspect of of my life: the country girl, the writer, the nanny, the *lesbian* (ugh I HATE that word, let's say) the Queer, the punk, and maybe even the best friend. Apple picking, yes, you read that... Continue reading

It's turning to Fall here in DC. I can smell it in the air and leaves are browning, some are falling. Covering the brick streets of Georgetown. It's beautiful here, and while I've known for sometime that Washington was growing on me, I think I might actually be falling in... Continue reading

Tuesday morning the last of my San Francisco vistors boarded a plane and left DC. I am officially on my own out here now. Starting a new life or a new chapter. I feel like San Francisco went out with a bang, as I've spent the last week running through... Continue reading

Continuing my travels around the East Coast I just got back from Bethany Beach (a tiny middle-class beach town in Delaware: Picture Jaws). I went with the family for a week of work/vacation as well as complete induction into the family. I spent 90% of my time surrounded by 25... Continue reading

Between visiting friends and life crisis’ I’ve been terribly behind in my DC blogging. My best friend, Kirya, came to visit me on July 27, on the tail-end of a really bad weekend. So sadly I didn’t get to show her much of DC since we spent the majority of... Continue reading

The last few weeks here in DC have been nothing short of intense. Before Monday the heat has been off the charts. Causing streets too vibrate and windows to rattle. My skin feels slick in everything I wear. Over-sized. Too tight. I can't seem to fit in it. I live... Continue reading

So Sunday, for those of you (like me) could have cared less, was the last game of the World Cup. Yes, I'm actually writing about soccer. If you asked me 3 weeks ago about the World Cup I would have looked at you blankly and said "that's like soccer's superbowl?"... Continue reading
