The Badges on my Sash

When I was in second grade I was a girl scout.  I only did girl scouts for one year, probably because it was only made possible by the unusual circumstance of extra money in the Moyal family coffers.  I was so proud to be a brownie.  I remember strutting into the classroom wearing my uniform […]

The Imperfection Mix Tape

I used to love making mix tapes.  I would spend a whole Saturday afternoon listening to the radio, waiting for a good song to come on and when it did, I would run over to my Sony boombox to push record.  My famous “Super Sarah Mix Tapes” would constantly be played in our mini van […]

One of the only good things about not having cable is that instead of watching A+ reality drama on “Real Housewives of XYZ” in real time, I am catching up on awesome shows of yesteryear on Netflix instant.  Lately, I have been rediscovering the glory of Ally McBeal.  My sisters and I loved to watch […]

Embracing my Heritage

I spent Thursday evening in a fancy pants hotel ballroom, surrounded by well dressed wealthy people who were there to donate money, eat a good meal, and honor a Jewish Family Services benefactor.   I was there because my amazing Saptha (grandma) was part of the show, making her debut via pre-taped video.  She was taped to show […]

Show-Stopper-Itis

My name is Sarah, and I have showstopperitis.  In some ways, it really cant be helped.  I come from a family of showstoppers.  My great grandma was the original showstopper.  With the class of a southern belle and a heart bigger than any, her southern meatloaf and perfect country fried steak still lives in the memories of those dazzled by […]

The Lessons of Minimum Wage

One of my old students emailed me today.  He told me that since graduating he has worked a few different jobs but nothing great.  I wrote him back, encouraging him that working a variety of jobs means gaining new skills and learning what you like to do.  This got me thinking about some of the […]

Throw the back out with the bath water

One of my worst yoga fears has happened.  I threw out my back.  Did it happen in yoga class, looking amazing in a hard pose?  Nope.  It happened at the nail salon.  Some people who know me well know that I do not enjoy pedicures.  I get them about twice a year and endure them […]
