COVID Holiday

Dear Reader, Should you travel during the pandemic? Answer — no. Do people travel anyway? Answer — yes and I’m sorry to report that I am one of these people. Recently, my boyfriend and I took a car trip north to Camden, Maine and I want to share a little bit about my experience. Each... Continue Reading →

On Top of Mount Battie

Dear Reader, Not all small towns are created equal and Camden, Maine is far greater than its 26.65 square miles. Located on the water, Camden is a hub for sailing (more here), but also a great destination for hiking. A big draw to Camden is the Camden Hills State park. Most famously, the park is home...

Starboard Home

Dear Reader, What does one do on vacation in a small town? This is the question my boyfriend and I were confronted with when we decided to take a weekend trip to Camden, Maine (more here). Camden is a coastal town, home to about 5,000 people and a summer destination for wealthy New Englanders who... Continue Reading →

Just the Journey

Dear Reader, And we’re off! Over the weekend, my boyfriend and I ventured north for a weekend in Camden, Maine, a coastal town. In a subconscious realization of the refrain “it’s not the destination, it’s the journey,” we ended up spending our first day "in Camden" just getting to Camden. Due to availability, we ended...

Enthralled and Appalled

Dear Reader, Do you have a favorite book? I never really did. I used to think I had favorite books, but, honestly, I just relished the task of choosing a favorite. What does it mean to have a favorite book anyway? Must you have read your favorite book more than once? Does having a favorite... Continue Reading →

You’re Only Born Once

It’s your time 🙂 Now, on the topic of birthdays, I present to you the “birthday problem.” If you’ve ever taken statistics, you may already be familiar with this fun phenomenon. Simply, it is stated that in a... Continue Reading →

[Review] Midnight Sun

Dear Reader, Do you remember the vampire movie Twilight? Even though it has been over a decade since the shiny Cullen clan sparkled on the silver screen, I bet you still remember Bella Swan, werewolves, and awkward high school drama. If you are a fan of the series, you’ve probably already heard that the author,... Continue Reading →

Needles, Cups, and Delicious Heat

Dear Reader, What’s the point of acupuncture? The needle! Was that horribly cheesy? Apologies, I just had my first acupuncture experience recently and, boy, was it completely different than I had expected. Acupunctural therapy was as foreign to me as the history surrounding it. As a staple of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture focuses on treating... Continue Reading →

Here’s the Stick, Here’s the Shtick

Dear Reader, Grad school features a cast of different characters. There are those that take notes diligently, do the assignments on time, and study well in advance for exams. There are others who work late into the evenings and submit assignments at the eleventh hour. On the outside, I look like the perfectly-put-together first type... Continue Reading →
