It’s been a struggle – physically and psychologically – to readjust to Tokyo after a week in Paris [really, can someone just import me there?], but here’s some good stuff from this month, mostly inspired by Paris… – This didn’t happen in Paris, unfortunately, but so, so cool. [via Bike Rumor] – The green [Sram] […]

A quick glance at Stage 21, courtesy of Sram, OPQS, Adam Hansen, and a lot of really awesome people. I can’t thank everyone who let me tag along to this amazing ride, enough. Details and writing coming soon, but for now, thank you, thank you, thank you for an experience I’ll never, ever forget!

I’ll be Tweeting and Instagramming with the best of them, as long as my phone battery allows. It’s going to be a crazy night. In the best kind of way. See you on the Champs!

A Paris. It’s been months in the planning, and only a few nearest and dearest were privy to this secret trip, but I am currently in Paris. No, I can’t believe it myself. There is a final Tour stage just around the corner, and a few friends – old and new – to meet. I’ll […]

It’s August, unbelievably, and somehow I’ve emerged from the past three weeks conscious, with some of my sanity intact, and done. 200 multiple choice questions, 5 typed New York state law essays, 10 handwritten Massachusetts law essays, 1 Multistate Practice Test, 3 Guayaki Organic Energy Shots, 1 5-hour Energy Shot, 4 days of living off […]

Being single and female presents its plethora of problems. Add “Asian” to the mix and it’s like a whole nother universe. Like if anyone seemingly flirts with me [a rare occurrence, thankfully], I immediately imagine their rooms: a tiny closet-like space filled with anime posters, Asian language books, pictures of ex-girlfriends [all Asian], and a […]

Despite how addicting it was to watch le Tour over the weekend, I was grateful yesterday was a rest day. It was one less thing to miss, and simultaneously, one less thing to sigh and roll my eyes about. Don’t get me wrong, I love watching the Tour. It was what came afterwards that has […]

Still spinning on this tdf high, it’s all I can do to wait for the weekend where a tdf brunch is planned. I’m secretly [okay, not so secretly anymore] scheming. Brioche from Bouchon Bakery or Balthazar? Or should it be a croissant? Coffee or an Americano from Abraco? I’m torn. But one thing I’m certain […]
