my sister is sometimes observant and almost always really cute randomthoughtsbycaro: I’ve noticed in Asian culture (and by this, I mean the Taiwanese and Korean dramas/clips that I’ve seen in recent weeks), that when people wish you good luck they put both fists in the air, knuckles facing out word, squint their eyes and say, “FIGHTING!” in a higher pitch tone than their normal speaking voice. ...
GameCrush: even better than dateharvardsq.com →
I have a strange fascination with dating sites. This probably comes as no surprise to you, dear reader. According to Google Analytics, more of you drop in whenever I talk about online dating. Here’s why I’m interested: online dating is an interesting solution to a difficult problem. Most of us want to meet that special someone, but finding someone who’s the right combination...

This summer I became a hobby dater. I created an OKCupid account (a real one!) and went on dates with lots of men who did not terrify me. If I did not think, “I never want to see this person again” by the end of the date, I chalked it up as a success. It was a really smart decision, especially since I was new to the city. Most of my friends in the city were in serious...

Tyler Denmead: Imperfect Chocolate Mousse →
Tyler Denmead was one of my mentors at Brown and still remains highly ranked in my list of favorite people. He has since left Providence, where he was a community leader, to pursue a Ph.D in Education at the University of Cambridge. Now I’ve found him on the internet!

Because Jon is one year older than me, I can say with 98% certainty that I was the youngest person watching ACT’s performance of The Full Monty* tonight. I could count the number of people who didn’t qualify for the AARP on my two hands. If you’ve never watched a show about stripping with a group of geriatrics, I would highly recommend it! *Fun fact: My high school...
