Where Do I Exist?

Dear Reader, How big is your existence? Do you have a large family, an abundance of friends, and call a few different locations home? Or, perhaps, does your path cross with fewer people and your home is just one tiny spot on the map? On my afternoon commute today, I started to think about my […]

More than an Emotion

Dear Reader, Do you get upset easily? When I’m stressed, I’m more easily affected by any sort of small annoyance. However, today, I became truly angry because of an argument. Anger is not an emotion that I experience frequently. Usually, I range from mildly amused to mildly upset. The anger that I felt today came as […]

The Umpteenth Time Around

Dear Reader, Do you remember learning how to ride a bike? Well, even if you don’t, I’m sure you struggled the first time around (I definitely did). Almost everything that we do, we had to learn at some point or another. Just think about writing. We literally struggled for years on this task. Can you […]

The Art of Mental Fumigation

Dear Reader, Why is it that one good night’s sleep will not make up for six bad ones? Or, why taking up aerobics won’t undo the damage of years spent chain smoking? For some reason, life doesn’t really offer too many quick fixes. I’ve been having some trouble with my iPhone lately. Sometimes the screen […]

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 […]
