Yesterday I called my mom’s house to have a not-so-brief chat and catch up. The person who answered the phone was one of my little sisters, age 14, who entered her freshman year of high school 6 weeks ago. We had some small talk and then she said, “[my nickname redacted], can I ask you […]


I’m turning 30 in a few weeks (more like 10 days), and I decided to pick up my bags and come to LA for a few weeks. I needed a life recharge, desperately. I’m both excited and nervous about 30. I hear you get more confident in your 30s, and I’m looking to gain that. […]


A year ago this month, I decided I was going to attempt to take my faith in God seriously. I grew up in a Christian home with parents who were very much like biblical scholars but often times poor in application when it came to their marriage. Their divorce and inability to get along hardened […]


I think I am a Christmas Grinch and didn’t know it. As the Christmas season gets more intense, people keep asking me, “have you finished all of your Christmas shopping?” I look at them like they’re smoking crack because Christmas shopping rarely ever crosses my mind.

It has been almost two months since I last blogged. I almost thought about putting up a hiatus post…but I was too busy to think about that. My life in the past two months: 1. Went to SXSW. Spoke on the panel moderated by the fabulous Denise Jacobs. Did a lot of napping and working […]


It’s been pretty quiet over here at LizBdotscom. I wish I could say I’ve been doing big things, but no, not really. Just trying to survive these next few weeks. Still recovering from surgery. Some days are better than others, but don’t cry for me Argentina. I bought myself a Nikon D40 with an extra […]

I finally decided to take iMovie for a spin, after avoiding it for a few years. Here’s my first video. Prodigy from calinative on Vimeo.
