There’s So Much More Good Than Bad

Date: October 18, 2011 at 8:20 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 63

I am a happy person. I think life is great. Fantastic, even. On any given day, there is crap in the world that makes me angry and pisses me off. There are so many little things that can get a […]

The Weekend That Taught Me How To Prioritize

Date: October 17, 2011 at 8:12 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 43

Hi! This weekend was everything I needed. I didn’t blog. I didn’t Tweet. If you posted something cool on Facebook, I know nothing about it. I never once checked my To Do list, or even thought about it, and I […]

The Thoughts In My Head

Date: September 19, 2011 at 8:02 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 52

For a long time, September 24 was a date marked boldly in my calendar. But over the past 20 weeks, September 24 never seemed like it was rapidly approaching. I enjoyed every minute of my summer and despite my dedicated […]

You Can Have A Good Day Today

Date: August 17, 2011 at 8:03 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 47

Warning: Overly optimistic and peppy post ahead. Yesterday I wrote about how I’m so happy to be in the midst of marathon training. My speedy, rainy morning run wasn’t the only good thing about yesterday. In fact, right before bed […]

Lessons I Learned This Weekend in D.C.

Date: August 15, 2011 at 8:10 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 37

I’m a little shocked I survived the BoltBus ride back to NYC yesterday. The trip took an hour and a half longer than it should have, probably due to the fact that the bus was being violently pelted by raindrops […]

Ali Cake & A Health Update

Date: July 18, 2011 at 8:13 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 39

Really, Monday? You had to arrive so soon? I won’t complain because this week is a 4-day work week for me. But I will complain a little bit because, really, I’d like a longer weekend all the time, please. But […]

Mid-Year Check-In

Date: July 1, 2011 at 8:04 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 23

July! When did that happen? Did you remember to say Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit this morning? I did, though it wasn’t the first thing out of my mouth. I think the first thing out of my mouth was, “F you, 5 […]

From The Home Office

Date: June 14, 2011 at 9:09 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 53

It’s funny. Yesterday, after I wrote that whole “I skipped to work and life is rainbows” post, my day went from calm to crazy. Within minutes, I transformed from a nice, smiling girl into a stressed out monster. My day […]
