I’ve been absent from this blog for a while for a few reasons. I’ve done some travelling, work has been busy, but mainly, I haven’t had a problem or any interesting anecdotes about stuttering to expand on, so I thought I would leave you in the capable hands of the other members of this site.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about this girl I went to high school with. I remember her name, what she looked like, the names of her parents, and everything she told me during that one semester we shared together in 1985. Out of all the students I met during my years of school, she […]Read more "Something’s Cooking in the Kitchen"
I’ve been watching the World Cup a lot since it started almost 2 weeks ago now. For the most part, I watch it from the comfort of my own couch, an endless supply of junk food and kitten snuggles to get me through the games. I have a Belgian friend who lives in my building […]Read more "A Very Odd World Cup"
I will always be able to pronounce the word impediment when telling people I have a speech impediment. Orange is the new black! When visiting foreign countries, I’ve found that people are less likely to be interested or concerned that I stutter. Just as you shouldn’t trust a skinny chef, should you trust a bald […]Read more "Things I’ve Learned from having a Stutter"
I had a bit of a stuttering fit on the metro to work this morning. I was talking with a co-worker and another lady who works in the same building but not with us, and I just started tripping over words. Neither of them cared, as expected, but it still struck me as odd as […]Read more "Damn you, George!"
We had our own long weekend out here in Dubai this past weekend; although ours was of a religious nature. Whenever that happens, all restaurants and bars that are permitted to serve alcohol cannot for a 24hour period starting at 6 pm the night before the holiday until 6 pm on the day of the […]Read more "Shouldering a Burden"
Not much to report on the stuttering front I’m afraid. Mostly good days this week. But last night, I did get to do something different. Talk about a great way to spend an hour. And the Gentoo and King penguins didn’t care that I didn’t say much. The Minion hat was a gift from a […]Read more "Something Different in Dubai"
I don’t have a lot of close friends in Dubai, many acquaintances, but not a lot of close friends, but the ones I do have, are gold. Most of us like to watch football (soccer) and we spend a lot of Saturday nights at my apartment watching the English Premier League. I live fairly centrally […]Read more "I Like you Better when you Stutter"
Hello again! Today’s blog won’t have much to do about stuttering, if any mention of it at all really. Today I want to talk about one of my favorite applications on the Internet – Instagram. I don’t know if any of you use Instagram, but its premise is simple. Upload photos onto Instagram and people […]Read more "My New Favorite Internet Time Waster/Educator"
Despite my stutter making it hard for me to meet new people and make new friends, I did have a great group of friends growing up. Sadly, I don’t talk to any of them anymore; but I think that is pretty much life, isn’t it? People come and go and dynamics change. But everyone we […]Read more "Educating the (M)Asses"
