I am only doing contract work now. That means more radio, more stories, less office time. No more the Creative Director at a marketing agency. (Though I am still doing work for them.) This has been a scary—yet welcome—change. A new chapter. One I've been writing for basically 15 years now. To stop from ruminating… Continue reading found in a trailer.
During a welcome beat of my new-found stride, I went on a hike with some badass ladies tonight. We hike fast up the "M" in Bozeman. It's like the "M" in Missoula… same same, but different. Montanans love putting letters on mountains. Afterwards, we hung out on a bench and talked and watched in horror… Continue reading I accept.
If this here blahg is good for one thing, it's to look back. And looking back is usually a bit embarrassing and demoralizing. Half of these links are broken! Why the hell can't I listen to this playlist anymore?! You had to be there. When we were there, things were unbroken in so many ways.… Continue reading I know there’s gonna be good times.
Work has been more awesome than usual lately. It might have something to do with the fact that I'm not in grad school anymore. [hallelujah!] But very recently, it has a lot to do with Freddy — the German journalist who I had the pleasure of showing around Bozeman yesterday. After an insanely delayed flight,… Continue reading maybe in one or two years.
This year has brought an abundance of exciting things. One of those exciting things was working with Epic Montana via Adventure Cycling to make the first episode in a series called, "Adventure Cycling Montana." I've plastered this short video all over the rest of my social media venues, but if you haven't watched yet, I… Continue reading well, now I just want to ride my bike across the country on the northern tier.
Things have been absolutely insane/awesome lately. I hate being too busy to have dancing dinners with Evan, call my mom to just talk, hug my friends after laughing about nothings, and go running/climbing/hiking/do anything that resembles exercise.BUT things in the rest of life have been so rewarding.I recently won a writing contest! Well, I got… Continue reading the alive work.
As sad as I am that I haven't been blahgging, it's way more tragic that I haven't been journaling. I read a quote about journaling that really hit me. I can't remember what it said [because apparently i write nothing down these days], but paraphrasing, it said, "People who say they keep a journal but… Continue reading ready for the next arrow.
Things have been up and down and beautiful and sleepy and tough and smiley. ——— Wondering about blahgging: “It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.” - Mark Twain. Should I be keeping my mouth shut more? Ah, well. ——— Favorite song right now...… Continue reading triannual torrential.

There is this one laugh that I have that I hate. And every time that it happens when I'm around good friends, especially Anna Davis, I say, "God, I hate that laugh." Sometimes, Ms. Davis beats me to it, saying, "God, I hate that laugh." You would, too. It's this one-beat, high-pitched, loud, "eeeeHA!" It's… Continue reading so… we’re here to inspire.
not much time to talk... unless by, "talking", you mean, "let's cuddle in bed... whilst watching re-runs of 30 Rock... whilst rapidly falling asleep"... then, yes, let's talk. a handful of exciting things... an illustration of mine published to a fashion magazine's blahg. awesome article, christy! xxo. <--click, click, boom. the other day, whilst riding… Continue reading get uncomfy.
Hay! Hay, you! ...wull hay. I wanna talk to you. It's been a while... and there's so much I've wanted to talk about. But then... everything, all this, floors you. me. We decided to go out for drinks. A lot of us. At work. Work has been hard lately... for everyone. Work has been hard… Continue reading you would go to a writing class tonight?
This is me. Yes, if you haven't had enough of the most self-involved blahg, here you go. A picture of me... myself... red shoes and all. A picture of myself... After a month of working at a company I can't get enough of. After dinner with the board. Whoa. After living in my dream apartment… Continue reading red shoes and all.
Work is going well. Very well. I think they might be getting tired of me singing this every time I show them something I've finished... "I made it!... I made it!..." The days have been going like this: Wake up. Snooze. Really wake up. Shower. Breakfast? A cookie. Bike to work. [p.s. i don't get… Continue reading workin’ on my night cheese.
Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait. Hodon. Hodon... Have I told you I'm important? Yep. That's an official business card. I have an extension. Don't call me on it, though... can't figure out how to set that thing up... Work has been absolutely great. Not last week, but this week... great. But being new won't stop me… Continue reading shared horror.
The morning shows on KHOL are just so indie-tastic. So pleasant. Good tunes, good people. It's just such a great way to start your morning. I remember before I helped at the station, I worked with adults with disabilities and one Monday and Tuesday mornings I would drive one of our clients around and we'd… Continue reading those simple.
I ran a half marathon yesterday. It went much better than the half marathon I ran two weeks ago... But don't worry... they took care of me oh so well... Anywho, yesterday's was harder than the one before. Don't know why. But later in the day, driving back from a pot luck in Wilson, I… Continue reading i was from portland.

Yesterday was my last day of working at Community Entry Services. [working with adults with mental and physical disabilities.] Working at CES was an unsuspected, powerful adventure and I am more upset by leaving that I realized I would be. Yesterday was amazing/hard. DOUG is an older man. He's got a big belly on him… Continue reading just wiggle.
