Ogres are like onions. So are people.
There's this episode of How I Met Your Mother where Marshall jokes about a condition he calls "revertigo"--the act of becoming a former version of yourself when you're around people from your past. It's not really a scientific term, but the act is familiar: when I'm around my high school friends ...

When I first started this blog in 2009, I was writing every post in a coffee shop, whether it was the campus Starbucks, the Peet's across the street, or the Cyber A Cafe outside of my work. Occasionally I'd sneak in some writing at the library or in between classes or in my apartment while ...

I wrote a lot of words about Universal Studios. #harrypotter   #universalstudios   #orlando   #florida  
Earlier this year, I'd vlogged about the one fictional world I would want to visit, and if you know me, I think you'll be able to predict the answer before I could begin to give it to you.

Lum describes her grandmother, a nurse-turned-restaurant owner, as her best friend, a “ratchet” with a dark sense of humor. Their interaction goes beyond the typical grandparent-granddaughter relationship. When asked what her favorite Awkwafina song is, Lum’s grandmother replies without hesitation, “I like ‘My Vag,’ because it’s classy without being too dirty.”
