A Map in Time

Dear Reader, You can learn a lot about someone by the way that they approach a problem. This past summer my boyfriend and I hosted friends over for drinks on two occasions. The first time we hosted three people, a couple and a single guest that were acquaintances of mine, and the second time we […]

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

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. […]

Nudity Mandatory, Clothing Prohibited

Dear Reader, I am in Iceland as I write this post. Although I am here for something semi-work-related, I was able to do a few touristy things in the evenings and mornings. A few days ago, I visited a public pool. As you know, public pools come in all shapes and sizes from rectangular holes […]

The Third Face

Dear Reader, There is a quote floating around the Internet that goes: “The Japanese say you have three faces. The first face, you show to the world. The second face, you show to your close friends and family. The third face, you never show anyone. It is the truest reflection of who you are.” Perception […]
