I know I don’t use this much anymore, but I think if I weren’t already out today for another event, I would not have come across these “tea party-ers” that have swarmed upon DC today to oppose President Obama’s health care reform plan, and I would not have been made so angry by all these […](image)

why i’ve chosen siena as my team to follow…fromvbtodc

Sat, 21 Mar 2009 14:46:22 +0000

Mason lost a game they should have won in the NIT, a game that shouldn’t have gone into overtime. but noooooo Penn State’s hottest three-point shooter got the ball, Mason didn’t foul, and the ball went in and tie game. ugh. and I was in class, oddly enough, while the AU game was on, but […](image)

march madness what!?!?fromvbtodc

Sun, 15 Mar 2009 20:23:57 +0000

my grad school is in the tourney, and Mason could very possibly be in the NIT, which I would get behind. but. after watching basketball as I’ve been trying to read about spatial mismatches, economic base models, and all that other junk for the past week, I NEED to see Bruce Pearl’s orange jacket of […](image)

salve regina and all that…fromvbtodc

Wed, 25 Feb 2009 01:21:12 +0000

watching Pitt/Providence right now where Providence is winning, and I just heard the sportscasters interviewing some Providence guy talking about saying “a few novenas” in hoping that the Friars get this upset. I love Catholic schools!* god, it is fat tuesday, imagine what the city of Providence will be like if they end up pulling […](image)

aww you turned 21, how cute…fromvbtodc02212009-21st

Sun, 22 Feb 2009 17:14:54 +0000

proof I am getting old is when someone’s having a 21st birthday party at a bar and I think that it’s cute and start remembering my 21st birthday. then I realize I’m young when I tell the 21-year-old that I’m 25 and he says “uh, you really don’t look it…” so… I went to Fairfax […](image)

I’m not sure what is going on, but a couple of weeks ago, I noticed a new addition to the “graffiti” on the inside of the pedestrian tunnel that runs under 395. I term this very loosely, since a year ago, someone decided to spray paint a few words on the tiles in the tunnel […](image)

Mon, 16 Feb 2009 23:30:54 +0000

not sure why, but I’ve decided to blog again. I tried twitter for a while, but fuck that. I know a couple of my friends are really big into it, but it’s just not me. I can’t contain my thoughts into 140 characters. so… I overheard a conversation while I was at Caribou over the […](image)

tidbits from the past week…fromvbtodc

Fri, 18 Jul 2008 01:59:05 +0000

I overheard a conversation on the metro while I was going to meet my dad in Crystal City Tuesday involving how a “socially retarded” guy could not give staff tours on the Hill. I was only on the train for one stop mind you. People at “ghetto SW Safeway” yesterday were gushing over the strawberries […](image)

Sun, 13 Jul 2008 19:32:08 +0000

this may be the most ridiculous thing I’ve written in a while. so email is awesome. Ismail is going back to his mother country in a few hours, and he’ll be in Bosnia for a week. due to the time difference and the fact that I won’t have much of an option to reach him […](image)

Tonight I’m watching various fireworks displays from Rik and Angel’s apartment building roof in Arlington. super exciting and all that! then tomorrow I’m going to a party of insanity in Fairfax. I’m going to […](image)

leave my favorite bands alone!fromvbtodc

Thu, 03 Jul 2008 02:06:19 +0000

I’m actually annoyed with a Samsung commercial involving The Apples in Stereo. gah. I freaking love them, but ugh why do corporations have to use some of my favorite bands in their commercials??? At least this isn’t as bad as the Outback Steakhouse/Of Montreal fiasco. but just because: one of my favorite Apples in Stereo […](image)

I went to the fax last night…ran over 4 miles with Ismail, swam and just crashed there. he still had a bag of my stuff that I brought over last night…and so we met up at FCSW so I could get it back. We ended up going to the SW waterfront, sat in front of […](image)

why running in 95-degree weather should not be done…fromvbtodc

Sun, 29 Jun 2008 20:17:59 +0000

up until last night, I hadn’t run for two weeks. I’ve been more consumed with grad school and work stuff that it’s really just ridiculous. but I ran a race with Nathan yesterday. and by “run with Nathan” I really mean he finished 10 minutes before I did. but I was not used to running […](image)

Fri, 27 Jun 2008 03:38:38 +0000

for a couple of hours after work today, I sat with my awesome buddy, watched planes fly over our heads before they landed at Reagan, and god did I ever need it. le sigh. honestly, I need a vacay. I’ll be done with my summer class after tonight (maybe tomorrow night, but hopefully tonight), I’ll […](image)

I swear, this girl only writes articles on whether wearing flip-flops and jeans in Rayburn are ok. That is my rant for the day.(image)

creepy scooter guy…fromvbtodc

Thu, 26 Jun 2008 00:26:47 +0000

I think the omen for what my day would become was epitomized by the old guy in the scooter who was creepily scooting along beside me and making comments under his breath at me on Old Georgetown Road on my way to work this morning. I would walk faster because he was creepy, he would […](image)

random thought…fromvbtodc

at least I have almost 6 pages of my paper. holler like WHOA. I’m definitely going to finish this tonight…if I can concentrate that is. haha. anyway, I know I’ve been spending way too much time in caribou coffee places lately (because I can not focus in my apartment…it’s sad) when I hear the same […](image)

…but only because no one really knows I started writing in here again thank goodness. but this is probably the best thing I’ve read today. only because it kind of parallels my own life in a way HAHAHAHA. except instead of saying “she’s not talking to you anymore” (I think I made that quite clear […](image)

so I was walking to FCSW to go to where I am now to work on my paper (I’m a page in woo! I’ll definitely be working on it some more when I get back home but I’m doing a little bit more research that is putting me to sleep in my apartment), and some […](image)

the price of gas…fromvbtodc

Fri, 20 Jun 2008 23:05:37 +0000

I’m chilling at Caribou in the ridiculousness known as Bethesda (I hate commuting here every day to go to work) trying to write my stupid paper. however, reading about accountability is really not as interesting as the gas station across the street, which is charging $4.35 for a gallon of regular gas. thank goodness I […](image)
