Where are you from?
Originally, South Jersey. Right outside of Philadelphia. Go Flyers! Now I live in Atlanta.
Why did you start this blog?
I have always enjoyed writing, and for a while I thought it was going to be a career. When that didn't happen, my writing got rusty. I missed writing and needed a reason to practice more. Plus, who doesn't love an inherently narcissistic platform from which all irrelevant, irreverent thoughts can be broadcast publicly?
What is your blog about?
I started writing to document my attempts to improve myself in 2012. What it's evolved into is a collection of recipes, thoughts on life, and documentations of random experiences. However, what I lack in direction is made up for by enthusiasm.
Do you have any pets?
I do, in fact, own the cutest dog in the world! Want to see a picture of her?

Here's us together on the beach in Miami. She had just gotten a terrible haircut at a discount groomer and looked pretty ridiculous, dethroning her from the Cutest Dog in the World for a few weeks. She wasn't allowed to be on the beach, which is why I was carrying her.
Who are the people you write about on your blog?
Well, you just met Riley. Xavier is another oft-mentioned character. He's my boyfriend. Here's his favorite picture of us.
I don't know why he likes that one so much, but putting his favorite here is much easier than me choosing my own.
What do you do for a living?
Clinical research in neurology, at the moment. It's really cool. I don't think I'll be in this field forever, but it's fun for now.
If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask!
