Share a Coke with Lauren

Dear Reader, It’s Monday again and despite my efforts to get work done over the weekend, things piled up once again in my inbox by midday. Today was an especially busy day and mid-September is an especially busy time. Things can get overwhelming quickly when the only thing on the horizon seems to be more […]

Goodwill Hunting

Dear Reader, After I graduated from my Master’s program, I stayed in Boston working my 10-hr a week gig at the university library while I looked for “real” jobs. For me, this was a period of great uncertainty. I applied for positions all over and I was not even certain that I would end up […]

Saturday Solitude

Dear Reader, Humans are social creatures. From the dawn of time we have been born into families and have lived in communities. Even our ancient ancestors knew that surrounding ourselves with other humans would significantly increase our chances of survival. I can be a pretty solitary person at times, but I’m still a human that […]

Complicating Bad

Dear Reader, This week has been a roller coaster of sorts. While there were some ups and downs, the most notable feature of this metaphorical thrill ride was that it had a tendency to accelerate from 0 to 100mph in no time at all. Now that it is Friday, I have taken the time to […]

Routine Resolutions

Dear Reader, Over the summer, I had a busy travel schedule and made trips to New York, the UK, the West Coast, and even Iceland. With the change in time zones, crazy schedules, and totally utter exhaustion, I took the summer as a time to overindulge on all fronts. While a piece of cake here […]

Waiting Game

Dear Reader, Everyone must wait. Like it or not, waiting seems to be an unfortunately time-consuming and necessary part of the human experience. Whether it’s standing in line for the bathroom, sitting at a table in a fancy restaurant, or refreshing our email for a college acceptance letter, waiting happens and happens often. Everytime I […]

Drink Me

Dear Reader, I bet you are dehydrated right now as you read this. Statistics are in my favor on this one, as 75% of Americans (and I’m sure others too) are chronically dehydrated. When I was sick (I had a cold last week), my most prominent symptom was a dry mouth. I would drink a […]

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 […]
