I just had my first feature article published. Super sweet.

I like Caterina because she reminds me of a quirky girlfriend I had in highschool named Heather. People thought Heather was weird and pretentious, but she was actually just genuinely surprised when the guy next to her in Driver’s Ed didn’t know what contumacious meant. So, in honor of the girls who don’t dumb themselves down for public consumption, I present these Caterina moments.

My cousin Andrea sent me something: a man
named William Miller surveyed people who were dying. In his
research, he discovered most of them would basically do three things
differently if they had the chance to live their lives over:

1) They’d take more risks,

2) They’d assert themselves more, and

3) They’d have a lot more self-discipline.

Cooking, cleaning, thinking, taking baths, going for walks are things I
hardly have time for anymore, or don’t remember to do. Funny how
these things used to be the stuff of life, but have been replaced by
driving on freeways, conference calls, showers, chinese food delivery
and answering email. Like we want as little contact with our lives as
possible.

Jouke told me that “patatipatata” is French for “yadda yadda yadda.”
