Have you ever participated in a psychological survey or study in which you were asked to list your top 5 or 10 self-descriptors? Psychologists love to gather these lists code them in a million and one binary ways, including whether you are individualist or collectivist, action-oriented or passive, […]
I love to travel, try new foods (both simple and "exotic"), ingest caffeine, and watch political news coverage. Im a big pop culture junkie who isnt afraid to say she loves "In Touch" Magazine! A social marketing expert and psychologist by training who works in the public health field trying to bring a little common sense to it all.
All the world is my television and I like to provide commentary on it.
Have you ever seen the movie “Night at the Museum” or “Mannequin”? Did you read the recent news-story of the man who lived at Ikea for a few weeks while he was displaced? Have you ever wanted to sleep overnight at a store or a Broadway theatre; […]
Happy birthday mom! Today you would have been 68 years old. I can’t help but think about what you are doing now. I hope that you are enjoying a good Blake poem, listening to your favorite country western music and watching your favorite horror movie from high […]

Each day post Sandy, I have spent either freezing, searching for charging stations or making my way to multiple hotels across state lines. Throughout my post Sandy experience, has been the adventure of trying to get a team back to New York and trying to get the office […]
I have been without power now 96 hours. I have slept in the cold dark house at night and I have now slept in two different hotels. Moving hotels as at times there is only one room available for a night. If that’s all they got, that’s what […]
I looked for Lighthouses when Isaac struck, Post-Sandy I’ve been looking for Common Sense, Charging Stations and a Hotel
I have been stranded by hurricanes in the past. During Hurricane Isaac I was stranded In Curacao. With my boredom with the non-stop frolicking on the beach, I went searching across the country for a lighthouse. What a glorious adventure that eventually ended with me not finding a […]
Dear future me: Today, October 30-the day after frankenstorm, I am hunkered down in the local library’s children section surrounded by stir-crazy kiddies, glazed-eyed adults and strewn-about power cords. Everyone watching that percentage icon on their electronics. My nails are bitten down to the core, my belly is […]
