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 […]

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

Dear Reader, How do you travel through the world? Are you more a creature of the day or the night? I, myself have always been an early riser. When I was in high school, I would feel that I had missed out on something if I had awoken after sunrise. I am still a morning […]

When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemon Cookies

Dear Reader, Are you lucky enough to engage in hobbies that you love? Or, or are you like me and have to cram your love of audiobooks, language-learning, and wandering into your morning commute? Finding time to do the things we love can be difficult, but often worth it.  I have a number of abstract […]
