Rather self-explanatory…


From the makeouts to the breakups, and everything in between.


How to make it and keep it, and what it feels like to do neither.


Travel, food, music, movies, fashion - all the things we do for fun.

Marriage at the Zoo

At this point in my life, my only options for marriage are to transform into a Penguin, or to start greeting that cute stranger at the bar with ‘Hi, my name is Ruby, and just so we are both aware; the reason you are attracted to me is because you are evolutionarily attracted to my hips and therefore Dopamine was just released in your brain.”

We all wanted a shower, but since the British couple had not showered in 4 or 5 days (they weren’t quite sure since they had come all the way from Santiago), Jessica and I gave them the go ahead to use the showers first. Two out of two were electrically shocked while lathering up.

I met Joy at the beach on Monday morning. Joy is 10 and has cerebral palsy. Joy is the size of a 3-year-old and has the physical capacity of an infant. Yes, she is 10, but I came to find out that she is as fickle as a 16-year-old.
