Will You Stand Out?

Dear Reader, When was the last time that you had an interview for work or school? I’m applying for graduate schools now and just completed a preliminary interview today. The process of applying to work or a school can be both exciting and incredibly stressful. When applying for an opportunity, you are essentially committing your […]

In the Moment

Dear Reader, Life is comprised of a million unique little moments. In each moment of our lives, we make a sub-conscious decision – to live in the moment or not. It’s binary. Living in the moment means actively engaging in your senses and experiencing the present. Living in the moment means that you are neither […]

New Old Places

Dear Reader, Have you ever lived in more than one area of the same city? I have had the pleasure of living in a few different places around Boston. Today, one of my jobs took me to Boston’s Fenway neighborhood (home of the Red Sox ball park). When I lived along Boston’s green line, I […]

A Little Help Doesn’t Hurt

Dear Reader, Is it hard for you to ask others for help? For some people, asking for help is not a problem at all. One of my colleagues is all too eager to ask for help. Sometimes in the middle of a conversation with him when a problem arises, he will pause the conversation to […]

A Love to Listen

Dear Reader, Are you more of a people watcher or a people listener? I, myself, am the latter — an eavesdropper of sorts. Some people are perfectly content to sit on a park bench and watch peoples’ lives unfold briefly before them, like a silent movie. I, however, would much rather turn my back to […]

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 […]

It’s all uphill from here!

Dear Reader,  I feel that my life has been moving at high-speed for the past year. In October 2018, I started a few part-time jobs that have taken up almost all of my time. In the beginning commuting alone was a significant daily commitment, however, now, I am more comfortable in remote/ closer-to-home positions. In […]

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 […]

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 […]
