It’s the end of the world as we know it. Don’t you get the feeling that things are changing a little faster than before? I read the following three books and they reinforce this feeling I have that we are headed down this path and there is no going back. But Not For Long by Michelle Wildgen This is the subtlest of the three books. A power outage. Self-sustainability....

Dear Reader, My 35th year is winding down and in a couple months I will be 36. I’m still undecided about whether or not to continue blogging, and if so, where. For now, I look back over the archives of nicoleisthirtyfive and I am amazed at how honest and open I have been. Sometimes I read an old post and I want to take it back and hide it under my bed. We are always revising our...
I did it again. I became man-obsessed. I assure you, it was temporary and I now see the error of my ways. I went on a date and got all giddy with excitement and possibility. And Kaput. Plop. Splat. Back to before. I have to remind myself: I have a pretty awesome life. I struggle, complain sometimes, and fight with myself, but I have a pretty awesome life. I worry that I won’t have...

FAIL! Another unsuccessful attempt to fall in love bites the dust. It’s hard not to see myself as a failure. To add insult to injury, Valentine’s Day, besides being a day of forced romance for lovers, serves only to remind those who are alone just how alone they really are. I might just be the most mis-guided 35 year old on the planet. Must find inspiration.

The moon lives in the lining of your skin.– Pablo Neruda (via thechocolatebrigade)
Am I becoming a domestic goddess? Um, no. But I am learning to love to cook. My mom is the Queen of cooking. She makes magic in the kitchen. I think part of me always believed it wasn’t worth trying if my cooking could never be as spectacular as hers. But now I’m trying. I’m reading recipes, although I rarely follow them to the letter. I like to modify things a bit—I...

Everyday I sit on a train with thousands of other passengers. I walk through a crowded train station to get on another train with thousands of other passengers. I sit in a cubicle surrounded by an odd mix of people, ruled by passive-aggression and silence. To get lunch I must walk down a crowded sidewalk and wait in line at a crowded sandwich shop. And then repeat. Twelve hours a day, five days a...
