Safety Around School Buses

The weather may be cooling off, the sun is lower when we leave the office, and yellow menaces are back on the road, all signs that children are back in school. Now, while you may lament the added traffic and curse the day you leave after the bus, making you 20 minutes late for work, … Read More

Indications We Should Follow

Sometimes when I’m driving, especially in Northern Virginia, I wish all drivers were part of a hive mind. If you’re wondering what I mean by this, look to season 2, episode 3 of the ever popular show, Rick and Morty. In this episode, Rick and Morty visit a planet that has been assimilated into the … Read More

On The Road With Curcio Bergeron

What with people threatening to move to Canada pending the November Elections (though Pokemon Go hasn’t debuted there so minds may have changed!) and the fact that it’s summer, which means VACATION for the young ones, wanted to blog about safe travel practices to adopt before embarking on your adventures! Traveling should be a part … Read More

Baby You’re a Firework

  On a day when we celebrate what makes America great—lite beer, freedom, greasy food, and baseball—we often end the celebrations with fireworks. Our most favorite Chinese appropriated pastime, fireworks, are both beautiful and dangerous, and like moths to flames we gravitate towards those stands that pop up at the end of every June. While … Read More

The Strangers in Your Home

I remember when I was in the eighth grade and Facebook had just lowered its requirement for a “.edu” email address and suddenly everyone had a Facebook profile but me. It was awful. My friends were discussing Facebook stickers and Facebook pins (remember those?) and I was the loser who only had an AOL IM … Read More

One Day Out There

Between Snowzilla last weekend and The Great Freeze this past week, winter is finally upon us and making up for lost time. It was fun at first, jumping into snow drifts that covered our heads (preferably in bathing suits), getting a few days off (or if you’re a teacher, a full week), but with all … Read More

Winter is Here!

  I love snow more than most people. When it begins to flurry outside I’m the first to run out and frolic in the flakes, often miming Lucy from Charlie Brown about the various flavors of snowflakes depending on the month. This past week we have been bombarded with news and warnings of Winter Storm … Read More

Drones, Hover Boards, Lawsuits, OH MY!

I am not going to lie—when I heard that Amazon would be delivering packages via drones last year I was ecstatic. As a perpetual procrastinator, gift buying and completing errands in general happen much later than they should and holiday express shipping kills me. But, the drones never took off, much to the chagrin of … Read More

Don’t Drop the Ball this New Years

The year is winding down. Between Buzzfeed “Best Moments of 2015” articles, to Jib Jab’s “Year in Review” we have a lot to look back on and even more to look forward to. In 2016 a presidential election of massive proportions will take place, kale may no longer be a super food, and media might … Read More

Deck the Halls (but not too much)

This Christmas season will be the first one where I won’t be living with my parents. At the beginning of December coming home to a stark apartment devoid of holiday cheer left me feeling bluer than anyone who sings “The Christmas Shoes”. Growing up at home, we always had multiple Christmas trees: the kid’s tree, … Read More
