The Sound of Falling Snow

Dear Reader, They say that it’s quieter when it snows. This is because snow absorbs sound. Have you ever been alone in the falling snow? This morning I walked to work before sunrise through a winter wonderland. It is so peaceful to see snow silently falling into a prestine white sheet. Untouched snow is so […]

Mind in Motion

Dear Reader, Do you know what momentum is? I am not a science-y person so I will not pretend to know more than I actually do, however, I do recall a simple definition of the term from a high school physics course. Momentum is, simply put, “the quantity of mass in motion.” From a physics […]

Overjoyed, Underwhelmed

Dear Reader, Do you jump on opportunities when they present themselves? If yes, do you always follow through with these opportunities? At a few of my jobs, the team is having problems with employee attrition. To me, the core problem is that many people, myself included, see new opportunities in a different way than they […]

Soundtrack of our Memories

Dear Reader, Do you ever have those moments when a song triggers a memory? I was having trouble with my iPhone a few weeks ago. When I took it to the Apple Store they said that the only fix would be to restore my phone to factory settings. While I didn’t lose the important stuff […]

Pages to the Past

Dear Reader, When was the last time that you said goodbye to a friend? The last big exodus of friends in my life was over a year ago now when I graduated from my master’s program. Within months after graduation, almost all my close friends had left Boston. It’s a crazy feeling watching someone slowly […]

I am a Ghost in Size Small Clothes

Dear Reader, How do you move through the city? Public transport, cars, bike, on foot, other? I mostly travel on foot and by public transport. However, last night my coworker and I were working in East Boston and instead of taking a convoluted “T” ride home, he offered to drive me to a more convenient […]

‘Tis the Season to be Social

Dear Reader, Have you ever participated in a Secret Santa, or as we call it in my office, a Secret Snowflake? Briefly, the tradition goes that a group chooses names out of a hat and receives the name of another participant. Whoever’s name that you choose is the person you will get a small gift […]

Like a Well-Oiled Human

Dear Reader, Our bodies are kind of like machines. While it may sound like I’m praising humans for their efficiency or ability act logically, what I actually mean is that humans have problems, kind of like machines. If your computer is facing some sort of issue, you may receive an error message. Sometimes the error […]

More than an Emotion

Dear Reader, Do you get upset easily? When I’m stressed, I’m more easily affected by any sort of small annoyance. However, today, I became truly angry because of an argument. Anger is not an emotion that I experience frequently. Usually, I range from mildly amused to mildly upset. The anger that I felt today came as […]

Putting the “Me” in “Memory”

Dear Reader, How good is your memory? I recently went through one of my old email addresses to find specific information about a doctor’s appointment from years ago. In my searches, I stumbled upon a picture of me in high school at a choir concert. While the choir concert was important at the time, today, […]
