Tiny Beautiful Things: Quotes from Dear Sugar

For the last few weeks, I have been listening to the audiobook of “Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar” – a compilation of columns from Dear Sugar, a recurring online advice column on TheRumpus.net and the once-secret alias of Cheryl Strayed (author of Wild).

Saturn Returns

Today I am exactly 29.5 years old. Aka the day that Saturn Returns for me. In astrology, the concept of the Saturn Return is based on the idea that every 29.5 years, Saturn Returns to the place in the sky where it was when you were born. According to this theory, Saturn brings with it major changes to your life between the ages of 28-31, 56-60, and 84-90 (if you’re lucky enough to have Saturn return a third time). The first Saturn Return serves as a wake-up call, when you feel grown-up and tend to make major life decisions. Read More! […]

QCait Runs

Slowly But Surely, Part 1

So, I have started running. I started running as part of the weekly running club at work as an excuse to hang out with some of my coworkers outside of business hours, and also as an easy way to get myself moving post-wedding.

I don’t know if I’m ready to claim my love for running exactly, but I can say that we’ve been going steady for about a month. And I definitely don’t hate it. Read More! […]

Geeky Halloween: Hipster Ariel

You know I love a geeky Halloween costume! This Halloween I spent the day dressed as Ariel the Little Mermaid, and some of the day as The Little Mermaid’s alternately-imagined persona, Hipster Ariel.

Hipster versions of Disney princesses make for some of my favorite internet memes, and Ariel is the original. Here’s an overview of what I used for my costumer! Read More! […]

My Oak Forest Neighborhood Favorites

We are in the process of buying our first home and will be moving to northeast Houston next month! We’re BEYOND excited, but it will be a big change. Our new neighborhood is essentially the other side of the world from our current digs in Oak Forest, in northwest Houston just outside the loop from the Heights. We have lived Heights-adjacent for the past 4 1/2 years, and there are lots of things I will miss. Read More! […]
