Brown hair is kinda cool, actually. Never had it until recently. The woman who cut my hair told me the color I've ended up with is "very natural". Now THAT's a new one. #normalhair #haircut #brownhair #brunette #shorthair #alinebob #ihadtocutitalloffcosiamtoolazytodoanythingtoit

One of my volleyball game stories won honorable mention in the California News Publishers Association Better Newspapers Contest! 🆒This is my 2nd CNPA award, and yes honorable mention is an award, they give you a certificate, ok? Last year I also received honorable mention for a profile that was basically 2 hours of talking to someone about Bad Religion and philosophy. It was more fun than work. Now I also have one for a story about a sport that I frantically learned everything about before covering for the first time. Neither felt like work, cos I was doing something I love: learning and listening and sharing information and stories. It's freaking crazy to me that I have been recognized for something I love doing and it's a really cool little motivator. It helps me go into my next challenge/adventure with confidence, even though broadcasting and writing are so vastly different. It's also super important to stop and be grateful for things like this when they come along, even if they are 4th place medals. I'm doing what I love and I'm being recognized for doing it well, and I hope every woman reading this is doing the same or starting their journey towards it. It doesn't matter how old you are or where you come from. My dad can't spell and I'm an "award-winning" writer. You can do whatever you can dream, and it's ok to toot your own horn sometimes. #writer #sportswriter #журналістика #AWSM #associationofwomeninsportsmedia #theguardsman #ccsfjournalism #ccsfathletics #journalism #sportswriting #ladysportswriter #dreambig #thanksforthereallyspecificfeedback

Happy father's day to my pops and my Papa, who never let anyone touch their hair and taught me how to make things with my own hands (useful things, I made a shitty shelf once) and to love dogs and trucks and how to drive and pretty much all the stuff I know. My grandpa watched old movies and ate Nilla Wafers with vanilla ice cream and leaned to the left in his favorite chair, and I would ask him to explain that war, that time, anything. Years later I realized that was the start of my love of history, anthropology, books and stories. After he died I would curl up in that chair and it would lean to the left and it felt like he was still around. My Papa was the sweetest, hardest-working man I've ever met, and he was my "person". I have always felt like my family doesn't understand me but he did. Happy father's day, Wayne and Loren. I love you guys. #dad #papa #ambiguouslyethnic #choctaw #grandpa #fathersday #olanmills #ithinkthiswas1987 #80shair

Vintage Kodak slide I found today of a VERY GOOD PUPPER. I like to think this dog is on an expedition in the high Arctic here, perhaps Wrangell or Herald Island, pulling sleds and stuff, and was all "aye, can someone take a new profile pic for me?". This is based on my Arctic obsession and the fact that this dog looks strong af and is extra furry so s/he looks super ready for snow. Yes, there are places in the arctic without snow like the shores of Wrangell and Herald Islands. Side note: been toying with the idea of a podcast about arctic stuff, would you listen? #arctic #dog #kodakslide #slides #foundphotos #arcticbois

Twelve-year-old Polaroids of Kansas, which I miss every summer. I've got a thing for the prairies and that big sky and of course sunflowers. And Eudora is still my favorite name that isn't Russian (but yeah, I love Yevdokiya too). #polaroid #polaroidcamera #2005 #kansas #eudora #lawrence #lawrenceks #eudoraks

Beautiful Scottish-built Balclutha, the last square-rigged ship in the San Francisco Bay. There's a chantey sing on Saturday night if you wanna come with me, my bf said "I do not share your enthusiasm for this". I'm really into boats rn. #seachantey #balclutha #onaboat #maritimemuseum #hydestreetpier #sanfrancisco #squareriggedship #ifitsnotscottishitscrap
