Expectations vs. Reality in the Age of Coronavirus

We have been isolating since March 16th. This is the end of our sixth week working from home, learning from home, relying on others to deliver essential (and let's be real, non-essential) supplies, and being on Zoom and Marco Polo more hours than we're sleeping. This is the Age of Coronavirus Isolation, and I don't… Continue reading Expectations vs. Reality in the Age of Coronavirus

What I’m growing this summer

While a lot of my friends are growing beautiful flowers and a cornucopia of vegetables, my garden remains barren. See, I have a little bit of a black thumb. The way I kill plants (even the lowest maintenance ones), it amazes me that I was able to keep a cat alive for 11 years and… Continue reading What I’m growing this summer

FALLing into a good book (or ten)

If you've been around this blog for a while, you probably already know that fall is the most wonderful time of the year for me. My two favorite holidays - Halloween and Thanksgiving - are in the fall. I love the crisp air, wearing boots and scarves, drinking all the salted caramel drinks Starbucks can… Continue reading FALLing into a good book (or ten)

You can take the girl out of drama, but you can't take the drama queen out… Continue reading Trying AIP: What I Learned in May

Happy New Year! It's hard to believe another year has come and gone, but here we are: January 1st. There's a saying about not looking backwards because that's not the direction you're going, but - while I understand the sentiment and would agree that you don't want to keep your head turned forever - I… Continue reading It was the best of times; it was the worst of times: a “Second Glantz” at 2017

goals, momentum, one little word

The year of momentum

I'm a planner. By the time eighth grade rolled around, I already had my entire high school course load mapped out. My senior year in high school barely began, and I knew every class I was going to take for my college major and which clubs I was going to partake in. My dad would… Continue reading The year of momentum
