Year of Giving
The concept is simple. I will give $10 to a different person every day for a year. I will write about the people who I intersect with as well as the truly altruistic experience that I am sure to have!I recently lost my job at a nonprofit organization due to the economic climate so taking on this endeavor may not seem fiscally prudent. However, I think it is exactly these times that we must focus on helping others.

Super Girl
My name is Jenny, (former aliases Mimi or Shao), I was born in Taiwan on March 25, 1988, making me the fiery and passionate Aries. I was raised in Toronto, Canada, but have lived in Taiwan long enough to have the language and culture rub off on me, and now I’m currently living in the DC metro area in the USA. I have a secret crush on web designing, much like guys have a secret crush on Smirnoff and chick flicks. It’s a secret because no one offline really knows about it, except my mom and a select few friends (like, 3). I have been attached to this hobby since 5th grade (which makes it 11 years now) ever since I made my first Pokemon page filled with stolen awards and images.

Digressions from DC
I started writing on a whim back in November of 2008. I had settled down in a new city-Washington, D.C.-and wanted to share my experiences as a “real adult.” It took three seconds for me to select this blog’s title, Digressions from DC. I just like alliteration.
Little did I realize that Digressions from DC is the perfect name to capture what I write about and how I tell these stories. According to Merriam Webster’s online dictionary, to “digress” is to “ to turn aside especially from the main subject of attention or course of argument.” A digression, then, is the act or an instance of digressing in a discourse or other usually organized literary work.”

Aesthetics of Everywhere
Consider the urban scene, its people and processes.


Artful Mom DC
This blog journals my artful approach to city life with a kid on a shoestring budget. After 14 years of contentedly living child-free in Washington, DC, my husband and I decided to take the plunge into parenthood. He and I didn’t earn much as English and Photography teachers, respectively, but we couldn’t imagine being anywhere else doing anything else. We found some comfort in knowing that as creative people we could make it work.

Confessions of a Dilettante
I’m just a girl with a baby, a bike, and a lot of grand ideas. A painter, a poet, a dreamer of dreams, a gentle soul on a quest for beauty and truth. I am going to change the world, one smile at a time.

Search and Rescue, for real

Hound and the Found
I joined a k9 search and rescue group as a trainee volunteer in October. I have since begun writing about my adventures in training a search dog in the DC area. We go all over the area in the cities to meet friendly people and the area wilderness to train. Its been funny, heartbreaking, loud, messy, smelly, destructive, and heartwarming thus far.

Metro adventure

Metro-Venture: one year to visit all stations and ride all bus lines in the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority’s (or WMATA for short) system. Tools: SmarTrip card, camera (make and model info coming soon), system-wide map, notebook, pen, and a lot of time on my hands. Goals: understand why this is the public transit system everybody loves to hate, learn more about my adopted hometown, get my butt off the couch…even during Law & Order marathons on cable.

Food and fitness

FANNEtastic food
My name is Anne and I’m 27 years old. I’m currently living in D.C., taking prerequisites and applying to masters programs to become an R.D. I love running, ice cream, making people laugh, wine, being outdoors, and a hot mug of tea on a cold day.

Government, civics, education
