I think I have become addicted to herbal tea and Big Red gum. I know this by the time spent looking online at caffeine-free green tea options as well as the three wrappers of gum on my desk. After battling annoying allergies for a few days I thought, “I want to drink tea”. It just […]

Like a Cat in Water

I did it! I walked to the bus stop near my house (only about 1/2 mile). Took a bus to the MetroRail and then boarded the train. Austinites have complained about the rail not being used, but it was packed! I’m guessing it’s not really utilized as much for times other than getting to and […]
