The Loneliest Humans

Dear Reader, Today I finished watching the most depressing Christmas film of my existence. It is the end of October and out of respect for Halloween and Thanksgiving I try not to start celebrating the Christmas holiday until Black Friday. However, when I was looking for a movie to watch, this German film caught my […]

Little Imaginary Lines

Dear Reader, If my existence could be traced on a map, I’m sure you would see large dots over my home and work and strong lines connecting the two. Then, if you squinted, I’m sure you would see fainter lines connecting me to some places I’m more likely to visit, like my favorite cafe or […]

The Problem with Problems

Dear Reader,  Have you ever been stuck on a problem so challenging that you don’t even know where to begin? Well, I am. I am currently trying to write a research proposal for graduate school applications and it feels like everyone already took all the interesting research ideas. Where to start? Everytime I stumble upon […]

The (Other) Windy City

Dear Reader, Boston is in the midst of a Nor’easter. Apparently, I slept through the worst of it. However, in the middle of the night, my boyfriend and others were caught in the rain (a downpour really that went as much down as it did side to side). Roofs were damaged, trees split in half, […]

Incidental Street Fair

Dear Reader, Today there was a street fair in Harvard Square. The roads were closed and vendors and food trucks lined the sidewalks. Although I love these sorts of events, I found it to be very strange that I did not hear about the street fair until I was walking in the area this morning […]

Beantown

Dear Reader, It is raining sideways again in Boston. Sometimes, on days like this, I have to really force to myself to remember why I love this city. Do you know the meaning of the word ‘ambivalence’? While you may have used this word casually to mean ‘uncertain,’ it actually has a very specific meaning […]

To New Beginnings!

Dear Reader,  It was recently my birthday. In the days leading up to my birthday, I have a tendency to reflect on birthdays past. Will this year be a good one or will it be totally, utterly depressing? My birthday day this year was fine, not the most memorable, but also not the worst. This year my […]

Sweater Weather

Dear Reader, I know that this is already totally obvious, however, I must say right now that the weather is very, very important. My mom and sister came to visit me in Boston over the weekend. They had booked their flights in July and I was hesitant to plan too many outdoor activities because I […]

Everything in Between

Dear Reader, Where do you see yourself in five years? I met up with one of my friends from grad school this evening for dinner and drinks at the Longfellow Bar in Harvard Square. We were in a two-year Master’s program together and graduated one year apart, I first. My friend Kris has been out […]

Too Much of a Good Thing

Dear Reader, I suffer gravely from an “all or nothing” mindset (see my very first blog post here for clarification). If I decide that I’m going to do something I will look up classes or create a timeline of next steps for myself. Although I have not seen many of my little endeavors through to […]
