To New Beginnings!

Dear Reader,  It was recently my birthday. In the days leading up to my birthday, I have a tendency to reflect on birthdays past. Will this year be a good one or will it be totally, utterly depressing? My birthday day this year was fine, not the most memorable, but also not the worst. This year my […]

Stop and Smell the Redwoods

Dear Reader, It’s another rainy day in Boston. At least this time the rain is light. Today, I visited the Apple store because I was having a problem with my iPhone. On my pace to their Bolyston location, I walked through the Boston Public Garden. From an aerial view on a map, the Boston Public […]

Ni Hao! Boston

Dear Reader, Today I ventured more deeply into a corner of Boston that I am not as familiar with. I work part-time at a couple of places and one of my jobs takes me all over Boston, so far, as far north as Cambridge, as far south as Quincy and as far west as Watertown. […]

Sweater Weather

Dear Reader, I know that this is already totally obvious, however, I must say right now that the weather is very, very important. My mom and sister came to visit me in Boston over the weekend. They had booked their flights in July and I was hesitant to plan too many outdoor activities because I […]

Everything in Between

Dear Reader, Where do you see yourself in five years? I met up with one of my friends from grad school this evening for dinner and drinks at the Longfellow Bar in Harvard Square. We were in a two-year Master’s program together and graduated one year apart, I first. My friend Kris has been out […]

A Little Distraction

Dear Reader, Today I was waiting to hear back about my Russian visa application. If all turned out okay, then I would be off on a plane in two days, if not, then boooooooooo (more on why I’m going to Russia here). All I wanted was a confirmation email that I would get my passport […]

Precious Partings

Dear Reader, My boyfriend is a very busy guy. Last week he flew across the country for a work trip for a few days and already this evening he is flying out to Europe for another one. Balancing work, life, and everything else can be hard enough under normal circumstances, however, when you add travel […]

Too Much of a Good Thing

Dear Reader, I suffer gravely from an “all or nothing” mindset (see my very first blog post here for clarification). If I decide that I’m going to do something I will look up classes or create a timeline of next steps for myself. Although I have not seen many of my little endeavors through to […]

Sunday Afternoon in Cambridge

Dear Reader, Today is the very last day of summer. In Boston, the trees are starting to change colors and pumpkins can be spotted sitting outside of storefronts. Despite the change in scenery, the last day of summer was surprisingly summery! This is significant, because Boston was already getting cooler weather in the beginning of […]
