Saving Money

Thursdays at work and I don’t seem to get along. Two Thursdays ago, the computer didn’t want to cooperate with me. I couldn’t get any of my work done and it was really frustrating because I knew I was going to fall behind on things. I went home early, not because of the computer but […]

A Zawacki Christmas

It was Christmas on Monday, for those of you non-Christians out there who are unaware. As a confirmed Catholic, I hope you had a good Christmas. As a born human, I hope you had a great day regardless of what you did. Every year for Christmas eve, my mom’s side of the family gathers at […]

Train to Chicago

On Sunday, I went down to Chicago with my mom, aunt, cousin, and sister to pick up my other cousin from the train station. We drove to Harvard and then took the train downtown. Originally, I was just going to snap a few photos of the train to share with my Ukrainian friends back home […]

Typing, In Style

A lot of things have happened since I’ve come home and I’d have to write a whole book to even break the surface of it all. Fortunately, I’ve bought a few things to help me do just that. Look at the top left corner of this website. You see that wonderful gray on gray image […]

A Christmas Tree

This isn’t a real post because it won’t contain any of the work related stuff or the stuff about being home that I’ve intended to write about but that’s okay. You want to know why? Because I make the rules, that’s why. Today, I put up a Christmas tree.  It’s really the only Christmas tree […]

Where I’ve Been and Why I Haven’t Been Writing

I’ve really wanted to sit down and write more since I’ve gotten home but it’s been a blur of just about everything. Everyone seems to want to see me and I want to see everyone. I’ve been visiting friends for belated holidays and bachelor parties. I’ve been visiting friends for the sake of visiting friends. […]

Everything is New

I know I haven’t been writing lately. I’ve been busy getting back in the swing of things here in the States. I want to share a photo of Marley because she’s here next to me but I’m using my new phone to post this and I don’t know how to post photos to my blog […]

Reasonably Priced Beer

I’m the only American in Konotop, everyone else has left me. It’s a weird feeling. It’s almost hard to think back to September two years ago when we all met each other at once. It was a blur. Jacque and I go back the longest. As I’ve mentioned from time to time, we’ve been together […]

Taco Casserole

I mentioned I’d write about my taco casserole that I made a month back for Jeramie and my going away party. Sadly, it was all eaten before I could snap any photos but I’ll do my best to outline the recipe. Ingredients 1 pound ground meat 1 can kidney beans, drained 1 large onion, diced […]
