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 →

Better with Age

Dear Reader, Say it once, say it 1,000 times — age is just a number. And never was this axiom more apparent than when I went on a hike with group of 50-to-70-something-year-old individuals. In previous posts, I discussed how I became interested in hiking (more here) and how I am participating in the activity more... Continue Reading →

Something Nice

Dear Reader, Whether you celebrate it or not, there is no escaping the Christmas tide that swells across America the second Thanksgiving Thursday flips to Black Friday. I, like many of you, will not be going home to see family and friends this year, as a necessary precaution to help stop the spread of COVID-19.... Continue Reading →

Thanksgiving à la COVID

Dear Reader, Happy belated Thanksgiving. How was your holiday in the age of COVID-19? Surprisingly for me, my Thanksgiving did not look too different from last year. Last year, I went to a restaurant with my boyfriend and a friend for a small Thanksgiving dinner (more here). This year, instead of three at a restaurant,... Continue Reading →

Some Call It Karma

Dear Reader, Do you believe in karma? Full disclosure, I barely believe in anything, but something that happened recently could easily be considered karma. A while back, I unofficially declared that November is the month to celebrate “giving” (more here). In the spirit of giving, I took the opportunity to give away many used items... Continue Reading →

This is me, this is also me

Dear Reader, Who are you really? This question is best asked in context. You may be a musician professionally, a husband at home, and an anarcho-socialist politically. However, who are you when you have nothing or nobody to relate yourself with? That is to say — who are you when you are completely and utterly... Continue Reading →

A Delightful Day in November

Dear Reader, How is your November going? In Boston, the weather is all over the place! In many parts of the U.S., one can joke that the four seasons can blow through in a week’s time. In Boston, this exaggerated notion is as true as hyperboles can possibly be. The day before Halloween it snowed... Continue Reading →

Givers Ought Not Be Choosers

Dear Reader, Do you ever buy things on Facebook Marketplace? Through this Facebook feature, it is quite easy to coordinate the buying, selling, and delivering of items as small as used earrings to as big as a whole mattress in your community. After living in Boston for a few years, I have now had a... Continue Reading →

The Bumbling Beginner

Dear Reader, There are two types of people in this world, the specialists and the generalists. I am wholly in the latter category of people. I like to dabble. I pick up hobbies and drop them like the act is a hobby in itself. Kids are encouraged to try new things and they have access... Continue Reading →

The Spirit of Giving

Dear Reader, This greeting comes long overdue, but “happy November!” If you divide the months into four quarters, the last and — perhaps, most eventful — quarter would be October, November, December. I am just now coming down from my Halloween hype (more here) and the election excitement (regardless of your political affiliation, that was doozy... Continue Reading →

P.S. We’re still in a pandemic

Dear Reader, My! 2020 is certainly an interesting time to be alive. The presidential election was the longest we have had in a while and, to be honest, it was really distracting! While the candidates were on the campaign trail, the coronavirus situation seemed to be simultaneously getting worse and better. Not too long ago,... Continue Reading →
