100% Chance of Uncertainty

Dear Reader, How much does the weather affect your life? I was recently in Cartagena, Colombia and everyday for a week the days were hot and sunny and the evenings were comfortable and breezy. The weather over there is so predictable, I’m sure many take it for granted. Here in Boston, every night before I […]

What to Drink—Part 2

Dear Reader, How is your brain operating right now? Is it totally natural or is it perhaps under the influence—of caffeine or alcohol? Yesterday, I began to explain to you my little un-scientific experiment in which I gave up caffeine and alcohol on my vacation (yesterday’s post here). Today’s post is a continuation of this […]

What to Drink—Part 1

Dear Reader, When I was on vacation last week, I conducted a very un-scientific experiment on myself. I wanted to see what would happen if I went without alcohol or caffeine. To preface, I’m not a serious consumer of either, but I am consistent—1-2 alcoholic beverages a week on average and 1-2 cups of black […]

A Bit of Old for the New Year

Dear Reader, Did you have book fairs at your school growing up? I went to a public elementary school in the US. Once a year, my school district would host the “Scholastic Book Fair” to visit the school and turn the gymnasium into a little market filled with tables piled with books and other colorful […]

Thoughts from the Flotation Pod

Dear Reader, It is the very last day of the very last year of the decade. Today, I am simultaneously looking backward and forward. Ten years ago, I was a teenager in high school. I had never left the country (save for a few hours on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls) and I had […]

Hindsight is 2019

Dear Reader, 2020 is just around the corner. New ends in sight and new beginnings on the horizon tend to leave me feeling pensive. This past year has been full of ups and downs. While some of these highs and lows have been out of my hands, there are many things I’m sure I have […]

Happy to be Home

Dear Reader, Did you get a break this holiday season? I was lucky enough to get some time away from the office around Christmas and I have a short schedule this week around New Year’s. While the break was nice, I must admit that my brain is having trouble adjusting to work life and my […]

Dark Green and Leafy

Dear Reader, As the year draws to a close, I find myself repeatedly reflecting to help myself map out a course for 2020. I always make New Year’s resolutions and I’m excited to finalize my list for the 2020. One thing that I would like to improve is my overall health. In particular, I want […]

Insert Two Tokens for Fun

Dear Reader, It has become a cliché to criticize today’s technology in favor of older and simpler activities. How many times have you heard phrases beginning with “kids these days…” or “back in my day…” from your elders? Often, these preludes are followed by some statement, which glorify the simplicity of youth without handheld devices […]

Eternal Sunshine of the Present Mind

Dear Reader, Do you ever have a day that just doesn’t start until 2pm? I’m a morning person, so for me staying home any later than 8am is cause for alarm. However, today, I did not make it out the door until the middle of the afternoon and it’s not for lack of trying. Do […]
