About

Good evening Reader,  My name is Ravensunset (well, it is for blogging purposes at least). I love to walk, listen to audiobooks, and travel. I always work to improve myself, even when I find that I am ruining myself in the process. I think it’s important to try hard and to always remember one’s goals.... 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 →

[Review] The One

Dear Reader, Have you ever had the (dis-)pleasure of swiping left and right through Tinder? Dating apps — what a revolution! Even after cutting out your friends, the matchmaker, and loads of opportunities for chance encounters, dating online can still be a chore. But what if we had a better dating app? And, I’m not...

Grounds for Adventure

Dear Reader, Even the most ordinary spaces can be grounds for adventure. The other day, my boyfriend and I convened for an unplanned late lunch at the Summer Shack in Cambridge, MA. We were seated outside beneath a tent under the bright blue, September sky and comfortable in the breezy, fresh air. The weather was... Continue Reading →

The Summer of ‘20

Dear Reader, This morning when I pulled open the front door and stepped outside, I was greeted by a bright blue sky and crisp autumn air. While I was still dressed in shorts, I did have enough sense to put on a light cardigan after seeing that the morning temperature was a mere 57 degrees.... Continue Reading →

Shopping in the Square

Dear Reader, Shopping during the pandemic has its challenges. When the lockdowns began in Massachusetts in March, we all turned to the internet for our needs and received our purchases through brown cardboard boxes in the mail. Amazon deliveries were so frequent to my apartment building that the storage lockers (where we sometimes receive packages)... Continue Reading →

Man in the Black Sedan

Dear Reader, I frequently take walks in this one parking garage that is always about 90% empty. While lurking through parking garages is perhaps abnormal, I enjoy this one location as it has a (surprisingly!) nice view, offers a breeze, protection from the summer sun, and a moderate incline which is great for exercise. I... Continue Reading →

There and Back

Dear Reader, One of the most convenient things I have found about moving to Boston is just how connected the city is to other parts of the U.S. and the world. For example, the Boston Logan International Airport offers non-stop flights to over 50 international destinations, even including a 15-hour voyage to Hong Kong and... Continue Reading →

In Four Years’ Time

Dear Reader, Cities can seem like impossible places to understand and navigate when they are completely unfamiliar to you. That is how I felt about Boston four years ago. At that time, anywhere outside of my bubble felt like exploration into unknown territory, especially locations beyond the city limits. During that time, some friends and... Continue Reading →
