Life Updates (Spoiler: I’m Dr. Diener!)

Oh hello, Internet. Apparently my MO is to do a cool, sassy update and then re-abandon my blog. Rest assured: I abandoned for a good reason–well, multiple good reasons! In my post from February 2017, I provided a pretty length update about what I’d been up to during an accidental year-long hiatus from blog writing. I shared some photos of my apartment, wrote about trying … Continue reading Life Updates (Spoiler: I’m Dr. Diener!)

I’m back! And here’s what I’ve been up to…

Why yes, it has been one year since my last blog post. If you’ve followed my blog from the beginning, you know that I’m not the most consistent blogger in the world. I try to put out quality posts (says the girl who once wrote a post called “People with no friends make me sad” and another called “Chicken fried waste“) that truly reflect where … Continue reading I’m back!

Diva Cupdate

Early in my blogging days, I posted about my experience with the Diva Cup. Four years later, my Diva Cup and I are so happy together. I thought I’d provide a Diva Cupdate for those of you who missed my first post and are looking for a way to make the most awkward time of every month a little more green. Let me start by saying this: … Continue reading Diva Cupdate

Minimal-ish Packing: Georgia Girl Hits LA

My bags are packed and I’m ready to go… to LA! I am so excited about this trip.

I’ll be away for seven days and I don’t know what kind of fun I’ll be getting into, … Continue reading Minimal-ish Packing: Georgia Girl Hits LA

SXSW Eco | Austin, TX (Trigger warning: this post is mostly about food)

    After my initial feelings of being eco-verwhelmed with the incredible presentations and conversations I was lucky enough to be a part of at SXSW Eco, I calmed down to be able to simply enjoy my experience and soak in as much as possible. This trip was chock full of lessons in sustainability, little green nuggets that I immediately stored in my mushy brain … Continue reading SXSW Eco | Austin, TX (Trigger warning: this post is mostly about food)

Minimal-ish Packing: Results

As an update to my post about my attempt to pack light for my trip to the SXSW Eco conference, here is a photographic display of what I actually wore and what items ended up being “extra” during my trip.   Hopefully my travel bag will continue to get lighter and lighter as I practice packing minimally. Any good advice on how to pack light for … Continue reading Minimal-ish Packing: Results

SXSW Eco Baby

Feelings associated with attending the SXSWEco Conference.  There’s nothing like a giant conference on environmental sustainability to make you feel like one small (somewhat uneducated) piece in an 8-million-piece puzzle. It’s like going from a high school where you’re at the top of your class to a college where you are one in a thousand others who had a 4.0. I feel like an eco … Continue reading SXSW Eco Baby

How I approach a normal restaurant meal: Order a water Get the water and immediately guzzle the whole thing Order something vegetarian that comes with fries Pee because I drank too much Arrive back at table right as meal arrive at table (score!) Eat the entire meal in 20 seconds flat without saying a word to whoever I’m eating with This method has worked pretty … Continue reading Newport is for (food) lovers
