I’m moving to South Carolina!?

The lease on our apartment is up at the end of January and my partner Glenn and I decided to seize this opportunity to work from anywhere while our offices are still closed due to the pandemic.

My Year in Photos 2020

Like so many others, a large chunk of my year looked like the above photo. On the couch with the pets, watching every show ever filmed.

Take 12 Trips: January

Well, another month has gone by and I feel like I haven’t had a moment to catch my breath. I’ve had a lot of new experiences but I didn’t actually take a proper trip. Again. So, like November, this month is going to be all about my mini-trips and what I did with what (little) free time […]

Giving Thanks | Suitcasey

In the spirit of Thanksgiving and inspired by my roommate and nonbiological sister, Sarah The Half Dietitian Half Human, I’m dedicating a blog entry to the things that I am thankful for.

Canine Spontaneous Pneumothorax and Bullae

Today I’m going to stray from my usual topic of travel and instead share the story of my dog Audi and our experience with spontaneous pneumothorax, bullae, surgery and what came next. We’ve spent the past few weeks going through tests, x-rays and surgery without any clear answers on what caused this, what we could […]

I graduated from Michigan State University and have been working and living in East Lansing ever since.  Over time, all of my close friends have moved away and I was left wondering what the future held and when […]
