My latest Diary Project blog post. My account of being a deeply heartbroken 18-year-old, who was weirdly optimistic about it all.
[The following was written when I got back from Alaska, after traveling thousands of miles to visit the boy I loved, only to have him break my heart. While the tone here might be deceptively enligh...

This was one of my favorite posts to write for +Quirk Books , because these are some of my favorite types of books to read.

Great storytellers create worlds for reader to escape within. Sometimes these worlds contain multiple layers, and you may find yourself in a story within a story. In some cases, we're talking an entire book inside of the one you're reading. (Yo dawg, we heard you liked books, etc.) ...

Inspired by National Karaoke Week, here's my latest blog post for +Quirk Books. 
The last week of April marks National Karaoke Week. If you love karaoke as much as I do, there's no denying how fun it is to feel like a rock star, if only for a few minutes. And if you don't have a microphone handy, you can still rock out with these books. Hey ho, let's go!

My latest post for the +Quirk Books blog. One for the #MadMen  fans.
It's almost time to say goodbye to one of the most iconic, smart and stylish shows to grace our TVs in the last decade—if not ever. Before we part ways with Don Draper and company, let's take a literary peek at the favorite books of some of your favorite (and least favorite) characters of Mad ...

Happy #StPatricksDay!
In honor of Irish heritage, here is my latest blog post for +Quirk Books. 
Where there's a list of top Irish authors, there's usually James Joyce. Which isn't to say the Ulysses scribe isn't praiseworthy, just that Ireland has produced lots of other literary talent, too. As we celebrate Irish heritage in March, it's time to offer the spotlight to some of the country's ...

New blog post. I still had two weeks before the Alaska trip, but at least a goth club outing was on the horizon.
As I hurled through my senior year of high school, I filled up the red spiral notebook I had since being forced to keep a journal in my life-changing creative writing class. By that point, I no lon...

Every day is #ThrowbackThursday  on my blog. Here's the latest post.
3/18/96 17 days until Alaska. Before I talk about him, however, I have to mention something else that happened. I saw Nisa a couple of days ago after not seeing her in over 4 years. I was a little ...

Sign the petition to #SaveTwinPeaks . 
Six months after the announcement of Showtime's Twin Peaks revival in October 2014, with a third season set to air in 2016, it has emerged that David Lynch is no longer involved with the project due to issues with contract negotiations, although the fated third season may still go ahead. Without Lynch, however, there is no Twin Peaks. With the scripts already completed and actors and fans alike eager for this to go ahead with Lynch at the helm,...

New blog post. Seriously, though: people in love can be so annoying.
March 21, 1996 It’s hard to keep my hand straight as I write this—no not caffeine, sleep deprivation. Bradley called last night around midnight (I was watching “Hellraiser III,” which wasn’t that g...

Excellent news and a cause for celebration.
The FCC approved the policy known as net neutrality by a 3-2 vote, with FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler saying the agency will ensure that no entity "should control free open access to the Internet."

I love pretty much all Asian food, so I was biased to like this Malaysian place from the start. Nevertheless, I had a great dinner there. Beginning with a boozy Thai Iced Tea and some delicious roti, through to the noodle dishes my friend and I shared. The space is a bit cramped but cozy and service is attentive. Would definitely return and try more of the menu.

Modern Asian food in an intimate setting? Yes, please! A 7 course tasting menu for under $50? Sign me up! Some dishes were better than others but overall, a memorable meal. The mahi mahi taco was quite possibly the best taco I've had in my life and scallop and bacon satay was also terrific. The pork bun and short rib were both yummy but on the dry side but the edamame dumplings (which were shaped more like ravioli) and mini-ice cream cones that finished the meal were quite good. The cocktails were also terrific (try the rum punch, which packs a--well, you know--without being too sweet). Make sure to check out the bathroom and see how many movie quotes (which are piped in through speakers) you can identify.

It's no substitute for a real casino. There's a decent selection of slot machines, but the lack of table games is a bummer (and an electronic dealer is not the same). Also, casinos offer free drinks, so to charge for them at this place feels greedy. Seems like all the machines are tight here and I've heard it's hard to win money. I don't expect to be back any time soon.

Great place to go for a healthy lunch. The ingredients are fresh and well-prepared, with an emphasis on veggies and lean proteins. You always feel like you're doing something good for your body after eating here. Don't let the long lines intimidated you, because it moves quickly.

This is my happy place. Definitely the nicest casino I've been to in Atlantic City (and I've been to quite a few) and a lovely hotel with good dining options. I do wish there were more lower stakes tables ($5 tables are rare, if they exist at all) but hey, you get what you pay for. It's the small things, like serving drinks in glass cups instead of plastic ones, and having a general nice polish to everything instead of the worn feel of some of the casinos on the boardwalk. Also, the staff is unilaterally accommodating and super-nice, whether at the hotel, casino or restaurants. Can't wait for my next visit.

Nice spot for budget-friendly Japanese food (with some Korean options thrown in for good measure). Has tables if you want to stay and eat, but it's a very basic cafeteria vibe, so I usually grab and go. The sushi is quite good and if you have a sweet tooth, there's also a selection of desserts (the mochi is my favorite).

Best cupcakes in the world! Some find the icing too sweet but I can't get enough of it, especially the chocolate. The cake itself is moist and just barely contains the generous coating of icing. I wouldn't recommend waiting if the line is around the block because I'm impatient, but it's definitely worth the wait.
