Forgive me but I couldn’t help make the 1992 movie reference in my post title. I”m officially a student! Bring on the keggers and frat boys. I am kicking-off my college reentry by taking 4 summer semester courses (2 each “semester”). So much to share but where to start?
Jenna Jameson & Cindy from the Netflix hit “Orange is the New Black” are converting to Judaism! One obviously is a fictitious conversion but nonetheless both are inspiring and entertaining. Shalom Jenna and Cindy!
Check out a few of the clips I uploaded to YouTube:
The inmates on keeping kosher and what it means to be Jewish.
Perhaps this is some sort of a tribal milestone; my first Jewish retreat nightmare. I just woke up from a strange dream about a weekend retreat called “Rainbow Lodge”. I think it was billed to be “Woodstock sans the Music” (already sounds like a winner). Continue reading
This place is magical. I am officially on my “retreat”. My accommodations for the next few days are “yuppie rustic”. Yuppie perhaps only because I have access to wifi & electricity. Rustic as I have to hike across the grass to the wooden outhouse if a bowel need arises. Fun fact; The outhouse is next to the chicken coop.
I just booked myself a little writer/soul retreat. Tuesday morning I’ll be headed to the green state of Maine via the luxurious Greyhoud bus. Asides from my chosen mode of transportation, I am excited to write, hike, star gaze, fire pit sit and just be.
I considered flying to California to visit friends/ family, camp, hike and just get in a good head space for school but financially it just didn’t seem practical as I am going back later in the summer/fall for a friend’s wedding. Continue reading
I decided that I needed to take advantage of my neighborhood library (after being inspired by my Pittsburgh friend’s nightstand stacked with library books). I have been in desperate need of a writing place that is in stumbling distance of my apartment in order to combat my leaving the house laziness (note: I used to have a gym in the building that I lived in and despite its simple 30 second elevator flight…it proved “too far” …I went a whopping one time).
I’ve been visiting one of my best friends and her family in lovely (yes…it really is!) Pittsburgh for the past week. Continue reading
I find myself astounded when somebody doesn’t know who Hadag Nahash are. C’mon people The FISH SNAKE…who doesn’t know of this super famous band? Apparently most of the world outside the Middle East.
I suppose I should lower my fanbase expectations afterall up until 2 minutes ago I thought their name translated to “The Fish and the Snake”…nope wrong it is just Fish Snake. #UlpanFailure . Continue reading
Last night I barely slept and I (unfairly) blame Jonathon Crombie. He is best known as Gilbert Blythe from the Anne of Green Gables series that I have watched over and over and over since the mid 1980s. I watched it again yesterday after I learned he died of a brain hemorrhage. He was only 48. He lived in New York City. Maybe that’s what bothering me; my own mortality. Continue reading
