Total Beginner or Total Imposter?

Dear Reader, When was the last time you tried something new? I don’t mean like a new restaurant or craft beer, but something more significant. I have a lot of vague New Year’s resolutions (which I should really just write down and clarify to be honest) relating to new things. Two such resolutions are that […]

Food and Fitness in Cartagena

Dear Reader, Should our health and fitness goals ever take a vacation? I am currently in Cartagena, Colombia and am pondering this question. On my first full day in the city, I walked around a little in the morning (before the intense Caribbean heat set in) and ate what was convenient—mostly doughy and, admittedly, greasy […]

Confessions of a Basic Economy Flyer

Dear Reader, I am off on another adventure – this time to Colombia! Colombia was not my original destination, in fact, my search was open, and I waffled between a few places. I chose Cartagena, Colombia because it was the furthest south that I could venture within my budget. I booked my flight to Cartagena […]

Sing a Song for Sanity

Dear Reader, Do you ever just feel… crazy? By this I mean, that you feel totally unlike yourself. One example of this could be if you were sleep deprived and you started seeing things or hearing things, or just forgetting really basic things. Another example, could be feeling really stressed and taking unnecessary risks. Things […]

Overjoyed, Underwhelmed

Dear Reader, Do you jump on opportunities when they present themselves? If yes, do you always follow through with these opportunities? At a few of my jobs, the team is having problems with employee attrition. To me, the core problem is that many people, myself included, see new opportunities in a different way than they […]

Dear Reader, Do you ever have those moments when a song triggers a memory? I was having trouble with my iPhone a few weeks ago. When I took it to the Apple Store they said that the only fix would be to restore my phone to factory settings. While I didn’t lose the important stuff […]

Pages to the Past

Dear Reader, When was the last time that you said goodbye to a friend? The last big exodus of friends in my life was over a year ago now when I graduated from my master’s program. Within months after graduation, almost all my close friends had left Boston. It’s a crazy feeling watching someone slowly […]

I am a Ghost in Size Small Clothes

Dear Reader, How do you move through the city? Public transport, cars, bike, on foot, other? I mostly travel on foot and by public transport. However, last night my coworker and I were working in East Boston and instead of taking a convoluted “T” ride home, he offered to drive me to a more convenient […]

Coming to a Close

Dear Reader, Does anyone remember the store Ames? The department store Ames was similar to Walmart and at its peak, it had over 700 stores in the eastern half of the United States. The chain operated for just over 60 years when it declared bankruptcy and liquidated in 2002. As Ames was on its way […]
