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 […]

Little Moving Pieces

Dear Reader,  If someone were to ask you about the last event you attended, you would probably describe to them what you saw, the food you ate, and your overall impressions. As an event attendee you have the luxury of having everything laid out for you and all you have to do is sit back, […]

“Versions” of Our Selves

Dear Reader, Life can be a wild ride. I am currently in the midst of what I would consider to be a hectic time in my life. About a year ago, I started working a few different jobs, which now consume roughly about 87.5% of my waking hours. This can get exhausting, however, I share […]

Happy to be Not Sad

Dear Reader, It can be hard to let people down sometimes, even if it’s just yourself. In a previous post, titled “Something to Look Forward to” I discussed how I’m always planning for my next trip or next fun event. Right now, I’m applying for a visa to go to Russia to participate in an […]

Wednesday Wanderings

Dear Reader, I woke up this morning feeling hungover from a difficult conversation I had last night. Dehydrated and sleep deprived, emotions rather than alcohol were the sources of this headache. My head was swimming in the things that were said, the things I wish I would have said, and the things I wish I […]

Something to Look Forward To

Dear Reader, I love to travel but I’m in between trips at the moment and life is carrying on as usual. Over the summer, my travel schedule was incredible (California, Iceland, England, to name a few stops) but it was also incredibly exhausting. Now with just work and no trips, things are just plain exhausting. […]

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 […]
