Failure is not on the Ingredients List

Dear Reader, How many times do you have to fail at something before you give up? If you follow my blog, you may remember that I’m trying to become a better baker (see post “When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemon Cookies”). Well, I have attempted to bake two more desserts since my lemon cookie […]

Ordinary Moments for Adventure

Dear Reader, Today I undertook the not-so-glamorous task of getting my out-of-state driver’s license converted into a Massachusetts one. To do this you need two proofs of residency (bills, paychecks, leases, etc.) and proof of lawful presence in the U.S. (passport, birth certificate, etc.). I also opted to get a REAL ID (which is necessary […]

Read and Listen

Dear Reader, When was the last time you read a book beginning to end? I mean a solid, rectangular thing that takes up space in your backpack and compels you to manually turn every page. I, personally, am very into audiobooks right now and cannot remember the last time that I read (rather than listened […]

Perks of Being a Morning Creature

Dear Reader, How do you travel through the world? Are you more a creature of the day or the night? I, myself have always been an early riser. When I was in high school, I would feel that I had missed out on something if I had awoken after sunrise. I am still a morning […]

When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemon Cookies

Dear Reader, Are you lucky enough to engage in hobbies that you love? Or, or are you like me and have to cram your love of audiobooks, language-learning, and wandering into your morning commute? Finding time to do the things we love can be difficult, but often worth it.  I have a number of abstract […]

Home Sweet Boston

Dear Reader, After my travels to Iceland and Scotland, I have finally returned home to Boston! It can sometimes be hard to return back to everyday life after an adventure abroad. The thought of going to work, paying bills, and running errands can make one long for just a few more days as a traveler. […]

Until Next Time, Scotland!

Dear Reader, My lovely Scottish adventure has come to an end. In this post, I just wanted to share some of my peculiar observations about Scotland that you may not find in your Google searches of the country. Irn Bru You see this orangey, liquid concoction above? It’s not orange soda, but an Irn Bru […]

Highland Holiday

Have you ever heard of a wee Scottish town called Oban? Coming from the Scottish Gaelic word meaning “bay,” this little town sits on the western coast of the Scottish Highlands. On our little Scottish adventure, my boyfriend and I spent seven short hours at this touristy destination. In this post, I would like to […]

Edinburgh Excursion

Dear Reader, When my boyfriend and I chose Scotland as the destination for our vacation neither of us really knew anything about the place. We resorted to a flurry of last-minute Google searches that were all along the lines of “where should we visit in Scotland?,” “best city to visit in Scotland?,” “which is better […]

Girl on a Train

Dear Reader, Trains are your friends, well, at least they are in Europe. While on my laptop in Glasgow I started feeling FOMO (fear of missing out) creep in as I scrolled through all of the “best things to do” in and around the city. I thought to myself, how silly was I to spend […]
