Lesson #17: ISPs aren’t here to help you. They are the enemy.

In my last post, Lesson #16: Just… don’t dare 2020. That’s it. That’s the post., I detail some of the struggles my two roommates and I encountered searching for a new apartment. Well, we did it folks! We finally got an apartment at the only complex I've toured and actually liked... with move-in day on the… Continue reading Lesson #17: ISPs aren’t here to help you.

Lesson #16: Just… don’t dare 2020. That’s it. That’s the post.

At this point, I feel like I'm starting to embody the old, oddly specific 'Generic Big City' trope of the delusional, jittery, probably homeless person pushing a shopping cart around the sidewalks.

Fuller disclosure: I wasn’t exactly “planned” either; I’m what my parents lovingly refer to as a “happy accident.”… Continue reading Lesson #12: It’s OK to take a leap, but be careful to watch where you land

Lesson #8: … And sometimes, you should grab on tighter (part 2)

Confession time, round 2: there was a guy--one of my best friends in high school--who called me cute every day, asked me how I "feel about dating," and once told me during my astrology phase that our star signs were "highly compatible," before skipping off and leaving me red-faced and flustered in the school hallway...… Continue reading Lesson #8: … And sometimes, you should grab on tighter (part 2)
