Ms. Fishbein, I join you in the Gene Kelly crushery. Even though I’m not a dancer I can one thousand percent appreciate his movement, his choreography, his generosity in dance. (He could’ve ‘hoarded’ all the great routines from Singin’ in the Rain to himself, but he knew that that Donald O’Connor would be a better fit… Read more
Now, I’m going through your comments. See, I never received this one, either. That’s why I didn’t respond!
Wedding planning is weirdly stressful even if you’re doing alternative stuff?? Take it easy, be gentle on yourselves, and make sure the two of you are always the priority. People can be really weird about the most random things, like it’ll turn out one of your parents has a really hardcore specific opinion about what… Read more
Blergh. This week was a mixed bag, my new job I am still loving and I feel like I’m fitting in better but I got lost in the weeds on something and missed a soft deadline.

When my brother expressed mild interest in my trip earlier this summer, I nonchalantly suggested he’d be welcome to join me because I felt a little guilty about being gone over… Read more
