My name is Sally.
I’m a writer, teacher, performer, photographer, traveler, eater of many things and wearer of many hats (not just tinfoil hats with weather vanes on top).
I’m also a big huge scaredy cat. But that hasn’t really stopped me from doing a lot of things I’m scared of.
I used to live in Asia, where I would regularly conquer my fears of spiders, open water and people spitting in public. Okay, so I’m still totally freaked out by all of those things. But I can deal with them without screaming… much.
I moved to Michigan in 2013 to teach at a university, drink lots of microbrew beer and, basically, lose all feeling in my face for the five whole months of winter.
Since arriving here, I’ve forced myself to do lots of awkward things by myself because, apparently, I’m the type of person who likes to push herself out of her comfort zone for a good time.I started this blog years ago when I first moved to Asia as a way for me to share funny stories and pictures of my lunch with my family back home.
And then other people who were not biologically related to me started reading it. I’m not sure how that happened.
I even won a few awards and got mentioned in some kind-of-a-big-deal publications. I’m really not sure how that happened.
But the mission of this blog has stayed pretty much the same: to share funny stories.
And, of course, pictures of my lunch.
I hope you enjoy the stories and photos as much as I enjoy sharing them.

Coming to Michigan? Feel free to look me up so we can go out to lunch. But, just so you know, I will have to take a photo of your lunch, too. Consider yourself forewarned.
