It’s been a while

April 6, 2012 / Daily Life / 5 Comments

Hello all! It’s been a very long time since my last entry. I keep telling myself to blog but I just can’t find the energy and brain power to research and write good entries after long days at work (which also involves a lot of writing and research). This entry is just a quick update…

New Shoes!

May 21, 2010 / Daily Life / 10 Comments

I interrupt my usual analytical / tech geek entries with an entry all women can appreciate. I got new shoes! The awesome part is that they’re not my usual style.
