"Many, many men have been just as troubled morally and spiritually as you are right now. Happily, some of them kept records of their troubles. You'll learn from them - if you want to. Just as someday, if you have something to offer, someone will learn something from you. It's a beautiful reciprocal arrangement. And it isn't education. It's history. It's poetry." - J.D Salinger
Hi, I'm Heather or Heather B. or HB or Heather Lynn Barmore if you're my mother.
I started my personal blog, No Pasa Nada, in August of 2005 just two months after graduating from the American University in Washington, DC. The first two years of my website are all about how drunk I got in Georgetown and how much I hated being an adult (the bills! the grocery shopping! the having to be responsible for myself! woe!)
In 2007 I moved back to my hometown of Albany, New York. I am now 'damn near 30' and live with the world's worst cat. I also work with my mother. It's an experience to say the least.
After I moved back to Albany I started Poliogue: The Art of Political Dialogue because I like politics more than anyone else likes politics and I wanted to share my obsession with the House of Representatives with the world. I now write about politics, my life and my life in politics.
I like Malbec, dresses with pockets, the color pink, Jack Daniel's, C-SPAN, J.D. Salinger and electoral politics.
I dislike clowns, large crowds, cooked carrots, ice skating and the size of my feet.
I'm not perfect. I'm annoying, obnoxious, a whiner, self-deprecating but everyone else thinks I'm awesome.
My favorite word is pulchritude. I just like the way it rolls off the tongue.
Here's where you can find me:
