Food First – Moscow

Dear Reader, It’s time that we talk about the food in Moscow. I am here in Moscow with a group of Americans and Russians. Some of the Americans, many years my senior, have experience in Russia dating back to the 80s, when Russia was a part of the Soviet Union. All my American colleagues that... Continue Reading →

Walk While You Can

Dear Reader, This morning I took a walk through Moscow. It is the end of September and the weather can be described as comfortably autumnal. The sky is gray and the air is cool, but not uncomfortably so. In Boston before I left, the weather was sunny and 60-70 degrees, however, here in Moscow the... Continue Reading →

The Weary Traveler

Dear Reader, I have made it to Moscow at long last and with no problems to speak of. In fact, I had a pretty enjoyable flight. After a not-so-fun layover at JFK (read more here), other than a slightly late departure, the rest of journey was pretty good. I guess this owes to the fact... Continue Reading →

OMG JFK

Dear Reader, Things can get overwhelming pretty quickly. Have you ever been to the JFK airport? I swear to you it is just a busy as the New York City itself. So many people, so many noises from the thrum of machinery to the cackles and shouts from the masses. I am traveling today from... Continue Reading →

Everything in Between

Dear Reader, Where do you see yourself in five years? I met up with one of my friends from grad school this evening for dinner and drinks at the Longfellow Bar in Harvard Square. We were in a two-year Master’s program together and graduated one year apart, I first. My friend Kris has been out... Continue Reading →

A Little Distraction

Dear Reader, Today, I was waiting to hear back about my Russian visa application. If all turned out okay, then I would be off on a plane in two days, if not, then boooooooooo (more on why I’m going to Russia here). All I wanted was a confirmation email that I would get my passport... Continue Reading →

Precious Partings

Dear Reader, My boyfriend is a very busy guy. Last week he flew across the country for a work trip for a few days and already this evening he is flying out to Europe for another one. Balancing work, life, and everything else can be hard enough under normal circumstances, however, when you add travel... Continue Reading →

Jet Lagging Behind

Dear Reader, I am a morning creature (see my post about it here). I awake from sleep naturally every morning before 7am, as if my body were simply just deciding that it has had enough sleep. I enjoy the mornings and find myself to be at my most productive before 10am. In fact, after I... Continue Reading →

Too Much of a Good Thing

Dear Reader, I suffer gravely from an “all or nothing” mindset (see my very first blog post here for clarification). If I decide that I’m going to do something I will look up classes or create a timeline of next steps for myself. Although I have not seen many of my little endeavors through to... Continue Reading →
