Small girl, big house

By | 2017-05-11T22:10:20+00:00 January 19th, 2017|Categories: Day in the Life|

I'm sitting in a beautiful kitchen in Berkeley that's the size of the interior of the boat where I live. It has picture windows showing trees lashed by the wind, a small gas stove with blue, flickering flames, and a six burner stove. This kitchen is a dream come true, with a dishwasher and a deep [...]

San Francisco, a playground for the rich

By | 2017-05-14T17:58:14+00:00 September 29th, 2016|Categories: Budget Lifestyle, Day in the Life|

  Tonight I tried to go to my favorite happy hour in San Francisco, at a sushi restaurant in the Marina District. I pride myself on finding good deals in a city where going out to eat at a mid-range restaurant costs $75 for two, nearly double the national average. So I find spots where I [...]

It's been over three months since I was laid-off from KGO Radio, and over time, like the stages of grief, my feelings toward unemployment have changed. At first, I was shocked, elated, free, thrilled to take a break from the daily grind and reclaim my life. Then, I went to Thailand, and experienced a new culture, new [...]

Divorcing Stuff: My Journey to a Clutter-Free Life

By | 2016-05-02T15:17:20+00:00 May 2nd, 2016|Categories: Day in the Life, Sailing|

One thing about moving from a houseboat into a sailboat is that there isn't any room for Stuff. No huge closets, no chest of drawers, no place to display knicknacks or photos, no cabinets in which to stuff endless kitchen supplies. In fact, anything sitting "out" would get thrown around the cabin during a battle with [...]
