I'm going skydiving.I'm going to dive from the sky. Toward the ground.I should have seen this coming, really, when I started working for a company as deliciously unorthodox as mine. I should've known what I was getting myself into when I signed my offer letter. It should've had fine print that said, "WARNING: This company is… Continue reading So, no big deal guys, apparently I’m just gonna jump out of a plane.
(*Note: This is (apparently) part of a two-post series. I didn't actually realize that when I wrote the original What Happens When I Work Out post earlier this week... but since it seems like all I ever do lately is work out, I guess I have a lot to say on the subject.This time, though, instead of discussing… Continue reading What Happens When I Work Out, Part 2: Let The Awkwardness Ensue
Confession: I'm not the most athletic person in the world. In fact, full disclosure... I'm probably not even in the top five. But I nonetheless understand the importance of developing a healthy diet and a consistent fitness routine, to promote immunity and longevity and metabolism... and when you frollup around with snartithicus and kerplunkitude there's a high likelihood of hipperdashing… Continue reading What Happens When I Work Out
I'm thrilled to announce that after much deliberation, I'm officially rolling out my (not so) new blog: The Nutshell Version. Don't be alarmed, faithful readers, this is still the 'Hullabaloo and Susie Too' blog you know and love tolerate. I just felt it was time that I cast off the shackles of my n00b WordPress appearance… Continue reading Introducing Susie’s New & Improved Blog: The Nutshell Version
I don't get soccer. I don't get how a game can be 1.5 hours long and still only have two points on the board. I don't get how it can end in a tie, and I don't get how Americans don't give a crap about the sport for three and a half years at a time, then… Continue reading How Harry Potter (Apparently) Taught Me Confidence
Hi there, readers. It's that time again - Throwback Thursday! Which means the rest of the Interwebz is posting instagram-filtered photos of yesteryear... and I'm over here with a bucket of popcorn, entertaining myself with the recent discovery of all my childhood journals. And I'm passing that entertainment onto youuu! This week's installment is a… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: A Letter to The Anonymous Sticker Bully
When I was little and I came home from school, my mom would always be adamant that I tell her one thing I'd learned that day. It didn't have to be academic - I could say that I learned my friend Lindsey's big brother played the bassoon in the school band... but I had to… Continue reading Well that’s awkward.
I know, guys. I'm the worst. Admittedly, Spiderman is pretty entertaining... but likely not enough so to keep you occupied for my entire - GASP - two week absence. This month has just been so unbelievably jam-packed busy with multiple weekend trips to Seattle, a houseguest, and my brand new job... that I don't even know… Continue reading Things I’ve Learned About Writing (And Life)
Hi there readers! In case you were abducted by aliens last week (which is the only excuse I will accept for not reading my blog), I recently started a new feature called Throwback Thursday. What's Throwback Thursday, you ask? (Okay, you're probably not asking. In fact, you've probably stopped reading and are now off eating… Continue reading Throwback Thursday, Installment Numero Dos!
RELATED: Also, no one is allowed to have double-standards except for me. As promised in my recent post about not knowing what to post about, I would like to discuss - momentarily - my fear of sharks, and how it is totally 100% rational. And, while I'm at it, why everybody else's fears are totally 100%… Continue reading Your fears are illogical but mine are not.
