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 →

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 →

Some Serious Sand Construction

Dear Reader, Can you believe that summer is already drawing to a close? To me, 2020, has felt simultaneously like the longest and shortest year of my life. Also, curiously, I feel like I have way fewer memories of this year. Before the pandemic, I was out and about 7 days of the week, securing... Continue Reading →

What’s in a Hobby?

Dear reader A funny thing happened when I stopped blogging literally every single day — I got “new” hobbies! When I was a daily blogger, I would set aside two chunks of “free” time each day. The first longer chunk was devoted to drafting a blog post and the second shorter chunk was devoted to... Continue Reading →

Happy 365!

Dear Reader, Something amazing happened for me today but more importantly over the past 365 days — it’s my blog’s birthday (kind of)! Since CuriousWordsBlog.com’s inception, I have published 365 posts in 365 consecutive days. I started blogging with one goal — to blog. Then, somewhere along the way, I decided to make the commitment... Continue Reading →

The Sky is Gray

Dear Reader, What do you call gray skies and windy weather? — A beautiful day in Boston! It is the middle of August, but the Boston air temporarily has an autumnal tinge to it. It is 70 degrees and a —somewhat depressing— shade of gray outside. I am not the biggest fan of harmful UV rays,... Continue Reading →
