I know, I know, I’m FROM Atlanta, but I frequently tell people that I’m not a very good tour guide for Atlanta considering I haven’t explored much of the city and suburbs.
However, I do know of enough things to do to fill up a couple of days to entertain Natalie over spring break. Continue reading
enjoy a messy free-write/journal entry hybrid of mine, which broaches topics like reading, self-care, social media, personal interactions, college vs. high school, writing and the whole hubbub. Continue reading

Do you eat food on a regular basis?
Do you live in Atlanta?
Are you a young adult with a voracious appetite?
But is your slim wallet holding you back?
If you answered yes to the questions above, it looks like you and I have a lot in common, and you might be interested in my new food blog, Cat the Critic.
There are few feelings better than finding a logical combination of two of my favorite activities (writing and eating), and that’s the premise on which Cat the Critic was created.
Of course, there will be two chapters: Atlanta and Chicago, and I’ll be filling out the Atlanta chapter for the rest of the summer, as soon as I get over my darned tooth surgery. But come September, I’ll be updating my Chicago chapter as I venture out of its suburbs into the great urban city.
But for folks who live neither in Georgia nor Illinois, fear not, for I will be posting about food videos on Youtube, providing commentary about food trends as they sweep the nation, and more. You don’t have to be where I am to share a universal love of food.
So here’s my sell:
My perspective as a young adult eating on a budget is much different than what you find nowadays online and in magazines.
Some food critics speak with a lofty bias, or force you to pay a fee in exchange for their opinion. Not me.
Yelp and Urbanspoon reviews are helpful in a pinch, but are often based on a single visit, under-developed and not carefully thought through. Not this blog.
