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 →

Happy Halloween! — 2020

It snowed yesterday, which is kind of shocking in October even for Bostonians. Last year, I dressed up as a... Continue Reading →

Running Fool

Dear Reader, Are you a fan of cardiovascular exercise? While I would love to say “yes,” to be honest, I abhor the feeling of being out of breath, which makes it hard to wholeheartedly embrace cardio. Recently, I went on a hike to the Blue Hills Reservation with an outdoors group (more here). On that... Continue Reading →

Happy Trails

Dear Reader, “Having hobbies” is a hobby of mine that I take very seriously. I’m impulsive about it. With sites like MeetUp.com and Eventbrite.com it’s easy to pick up and drop hobbies like hot potatoes — and that’s just what I do. Because some restrictions on group gatherings are being lifted (despite the worsening pandemic situation... Continue Reading →

Curiouser and Curiouser

Dear Reader Do you remember childhood you? The one that read picture books and comics instead of newspapers, novels, magazines, and… blogs? Not too long ago, my mom sent me a picture of worksheet I completed in second grade (pictured below). On it was a list of questions to get us to consider the academic... Continue Reading →

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 →
