We have to make time for the pain

Donate to Everytown for Gun Safety. To say this week in the U.S. was painful is an understatement. Waking up nearly every night between 2:00 - 3:00 AM with migraine pain, I felt like my body was sobbing in its own way for everyone in Parkland, Florida, and for everyone we've lost to gun violence… Continue reading We have to make time for the pain

My grains of truth about migraines (get it?)

I am so lucky to have the family and friends I do. Whenever someone happens to read or hear about a treatment for migraines, they send it my way. If you had asked me a few years ago what a daith piercing was, for example, I would have guessed a new Star Wars character. While… Continue reading My grains of truth about migraines (get it?)

What the hell is a GOAT anyway?

If you're born in New England, you are legally required to be a New England Patriots fan. It's wired in our DNA. Infused in our water. Brewed in our coffee. It's like not brushing your teeth or wearing your seatbelt: if you don't cheer for them, it just feels..... weird. Personally, although I grew up… Continue reading What the hell is a GOAT anyway?

The Tony-winning, Pulitzer Prize bearing masterpiece that's brought a young and more diverse group of people to the stage -- and to appreciate American history?   Lord have mercy what a show. Words come… Continue reading You cannot be in the room where it happens when you have no room of your own

Fast forward 8 years and a lot has changed. The guy I met towards the end… Continue reading Guess who’s back? Back again.

Making history

Today I wear white in honor of the women before me who fought for my right vote and in celebration of woman I voted for as the first female president of the United States of America. It's not lost of me that women throughout history have suffered and died for my right to vote, be… Continue reading Making history

So what exactly do you do anyway?

"Hi, I'm Sara. I'm new to California. Just moved here 8 months ago." "Oh, how nice. What do you do?" "I'm the sustainability manager at UC San Diego." "Um.... sustain-a-what? So what exactly do you do then?" Good question. For the last 10 years, I've worked in sustainability in higher education. But what does that… Continue reading So what exactly do you do anyway?
