Chapter One: I made burrito bowls My first mistake was starting the cooking process around eleven o’clock at night. I have since come under fire for this decision by such judgmental figures as the co-writer of this blog, who hurled devastating insults like, “You’re weird” in my quaking vicinity. At the time, my reasoning was […]

a new nature blog

Summer, nearly six years ago, and I was doing a lot of walking. That day, Chesil beach, with the long thin lake of the Fleet behind, was sunny and I found myself thoughtlessly kicking a large lump of peat. Peat? What was that doing on the beach? As I looked more closely, I noticed that […]

This newsletter message is in memory and in dedication to Avril Baxter – an inspirational coach and a beautiful soul who passed away from Leukemia a few weeks back. Her strong message for all us is to live our life fully, seize the opportunities, appreciate what we have and treat ourselves and others kindly and […]

The Page

Now we turn our attention to what could be the most interesting draft story in a generation: Who falls in love with 5-foot-9 7/8 (in his stocking feet) quarterback Kyler Murray, who now seems likely to be the first athlete ever drafted in the top 10 in two sports? To begin to answer the question, […]

Yes, Virginia (Rewrite)

I knew this particular job would be special immediately. It found me in Yo on the Go, an intrigue-free place even by the standards of small, sleepy college towns. The harshly-lit frozen yogurt shop specialized in a single tart flavor and toppings ranging from sad-looking strawberries to stale cookie crumbs. Despite this fact, there were […]

Miracles in the Mundane

Most visitors to Año Nuevo State Park this time of year are looking for elephant seals. Our family went in search of a snake. The San Francisco Garter Snake, to be exact, an endangered species that makes its home in that area. C20 has been desperate to find one. We decided to make this President’s […]

After a full week’s layoff, preceded by a demi week, the Huligans are back in action. It wasn’t the most prepossessing of mornings. The overcast was dense and dark with just a suggestion of blue here and there. Though the overnight low temperature was nothing like what we’ve become accustomed to over the past couple […]

My thoughts on M. Night Shyamalan’s newest “superhero” movie…

Cogitations of a bookworm

This is the second essay on Pleasantville that I wrote for exams last year. This one was for Section B of the schol English paper. I received 5 out of 8 marks for it, which I was pretty pleased with, all things considered. It was on the prompt, ‘A film’s potency depends on expectations’.

Soul Songs: Music and Mayhem

My life right now looks nothing like what I envisioned it to be several years ago. I am 23 years old, newly married, and plugging through a bachelor’s degree in Music Education. I am a violist who has the honor of rubbing shoulders with some of the finest young musicians. But wait, I am not […]

It’s hard sometimes to remember why you use things the way you do. My reasoning for using Linux dates back quite a few years now, and it’s still an extremely valuable asset for what I do today. Because linux has had my back for so long, and now that I’ve been dual booting for a […]

Love In Families

A family came to see me with an eight-year-old girl and a 4-year old boy. The parents had recently decided to have an amicable divorce, and on going to see a therapist, were advised to have a trial separation to test out how it would fee; to live apart. The father had found a place […]

Ms. Bee Bobs About

Rajasthan is full of art. There are wall paintings everywhere in the traditional styles with side-facing figures and bright colours. Then there are the handicrafts. I don’t usually buy souvenirs unless I’m buying something I can use (like the leather backpack I bought in Dharavi early this trip that has served me exceptionally well), but […]

It’s 3 in the morning in Norway, and I was going to sleep but after my 24-hour sleep stunt from Sunday to Monday night that made me feel like I had just come back from the dead, an eerily similar feeling to that of waking up from a coma, I just can’t. I have too […]

Wings Of A Nightingale

” Oh, ohhh! I think we missed our turn, Ryder. I’m pretty sure I followed the navigation’s direction but this road seems not what we should have taken. (Sighing) And now, I don’t have a cell signal. Ok, let’s just continue and follow the road to the next town, shall we?” Getting lost on the […]
