  • What the world was like when Rosetta was launched

    10 years, 8 months, and 18 days ago, space probe Rosetta left Earth. The date was March 2nd, 2004. It was a Tuesday and my sixth birthday was exactly one week away.

  • My three thousand mile humble abode

    When we roll our suitcases full of fleecies past the side of the house, into the basement and through the yellow bedroom, it feels like the year is beginning again.

  • Blending fall trends into the uniform

    For me, the school days blend together when it comes to style. I can’t blame Ann Richards- the plaid skirt and polo/oxford pairing is a classic standby, but it often doesn’t leave much room for style experimentation or the season’s latest trends.
