After attending a conservative undergraduate school that seemed to find reason to judge everyone, I found myself disillusioned.  I moved to Japan and had great reservations about religion and probably humanity in general. 

While living in Japan for five years, I at...

That's the thing about chocolate bunnies.  We look forward to them every year around Easter.  We know that they are sweet and yummy and just can't wait to sink our teeth into them and then when we finally do, it's as if we forgot what we already knew from all the times...

When I was recently at the Wild Goose Festival, I kept hearing a couple of terms pop up: intersection and intersectionality.  It eventually got to the point where I thought I'd explode if I heard either of the

One of the most common resolutions that folks will set for themselves is to get physically fit.  It may be to lose weight, gain muscle, start a workout regimen, eat healthy, or any number of things that lead to physical health and wellness.  This is a noble undertaking...

"I'm going to take another class or two and then I'll really be ready to do this thing."  

"Let me just read a couple more books to make sure I'm really prepared."

"I should do a little more research online before I dive into it."

Any of these sound familiar?  T...
