I Have A Crush (4/4/15):
humble, eclectic charm was calling to me. While my old haunts were
burning down, moving out, or turning into 7-11’s, I turned to Brooklyn’s
vintage shops and offbeat museums for respite. When Manhattan rushed
me, I’d spend carefree weekends winding down windy streets.”
Jiminy Crickets! (4/23/15): “No stranger to bug-eating, my boyfriend then ordered, off Amazon, 500 live crickets. I know what you’re thinking, ladies, but HANDS OFF, he’s all mine, and I’m damn lucky to boot.”
Days of Daze (5/9/15): “Out
of the ten hour day, I spend 7 hours actively interacting with
high-energy kids whose ears seem to be strangely deaf to the pitch of my
voice. I’ve actually had to blow my safety whistle on them. It didn’t
even work! I feel like the world’s most ineffective sheepdog.”
A Mile in Grown-Up Shoes (5/13/15):
“…why are women’s shoes so slippery? Are they afraid we’ll run away from the patriarchy if we can only gain traction?”
Greenpointing (6/23/15): “My new neighbourhood is the greatest! I’m so excited to be a Brooklyner, especially in such a quaint, adorable part of town.”
Five Times I Was The Coolest Teacher (6/29/15): “…I
decided that, as punishment for screwing around while they were
supposed to be working, I would force them to write their essays in
total silence…while I played “Kiss Kiss Kiss” by Yoko Ono. It
completely backfired on me…”
Stay tuned for Third & Fourth Quarter!
