The delightful Ellie over at The Lucky Nest has tagged me to participate in the Six Random Things About Me game. As she is the reigning queen supreme of typewriters, irresistibly large dogs, and a whimsical writing style that makes you wish you were her BFF, I must acquiesce to her demands. Here are the rules of this […]

On September 17th, the Martha Stewart Show will be taping a special about blogging and have invited bloggers to join […]

While researching new and upcoming exhibitions for my museum post yesterday, I became frustrated, clicking through the various museums’ websites to find the latest and greatest exhibitions. “Isn’t there a blog for this?” I asked myself. The closest I found was Curator’s Choice, which (in my humble opion) was difficult to navigate and poorly designed. Should I […]

Wanted: Museum Buddy

As much as I hate doing tourist activities, one of my favorite things to do when in a new city is to check out its museums. I chose to attend Johns Hopkins for its Art History program (most people are not aware that JHU has a great art history program – top 5 in the country – but unfortunately […]

The Evolution of the Geek in Heels Girl

Before making the official switch to Squarespace, I have decided that a site redesign is in order. I like the current design – it’s cute and minimalistic, which is my style. However, the Geek in Heels girl was bugging me a bit. I was pretty lazy when creating this blog and so bought this vector […]

Kudos to EA

I love it when companies go the extra 5,280 feet!

Great job, EA! (via […]

Why I’m Single Again

As a fairly traditional woman, I always knew I would change my name after marriage. I took a trip down to the local Social Security office this morning to get the ball rollin’ on the name change process. Guess what happened. Due to a name mix-up, it turns out that our marriage certificate is NOT […]

When I was in college, I used to download new Korean songs every day. Now, I barely have time to check the Korean charts, let alone look for the mp3s and organize them. Nonetheless, I still have a very healthy Korean music collection that I play quite often, so I guess it’s been rubbing off […]
