Day Two – Ye Olde Edinburgh Golf

Taylor and I have been on a melatonin regimen for three days to ward off jetlag... and yet, our eyelids snapped open at 2:40am this morning like they were spring-loaded. Which makes this the second day in a row with just plain too many waking hours. But that was handy in a way, because we… Continue reading Day Two – Ye Olde Edinburgh Golf

Annnnnd we’re off!

Remember that Europe trip Taylor bought me for my birthday? Six months later and we're on it! I'll be using the Nutshell Version to provide periodic (albeit brief) updates along the way. As a special Nutshell Version edition, Taylor will also be contributing - you'll see his additions notated with ***. ­čÖé We just arrived… Continue reading Annnnnd we’re off!

If you only read one of my blog posts ever, make it this one

*I've never used my blog for this purpose before, so I hope you'll forgive me - thanks in advance for taking a few minutes to read through this. I've made no secret of how wretchedly awkward I was as a kid. (And as a teenager, and as an adult.)

Turns out age 26 is actually the greatest

I'm sorry. I'm going to disappoint you all. I'm not going to talk about a single thing I said I would in my last post. Because the fact is, I'm frankly incapable of talking about (or thinking about, or reading about, or dreaming about) anything other than what I'm about to tell you. ...You guys.… Continue reading Turns out age 26 is actually the greatest

Why Portland is the Greatest City in the World, No I’m Serious, Stop Arguing You’ve Already Lost.

So next week marks a full three months since I moved to Portland. I know, I know, that's not completely┬átrue. Technically I moved to the Portland area a little over a year ago, but aside from my god-awful daily commute, I didn't do a whole lot of exploring in the City Proper. Which is nothing… Continue reading Why Portland is the Greatest City in the World, No I’m Serious, Stop Arguing You’ve Already Lost.

Throwback Thursday: The Nutshell Version Turns 1!

GUESS. WHAT. After the next Hunger Games movie comes out, they're going to start releasing prequels so the ADVENTURE ISN'T OVER YET. (In unrelated news: I have the literary and cinematic maturity of a 13-year-old girl.) That's not actually what I was gonna say, though. Guess what else! That's right - this week marks my┬áone-year… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: The Nutshell Version Turns 1!
