The Devil Went Down to Where?

Dear Reader, Happy April Fool’s Day! In a departure from my regular content, today’s post will be a quiz. Because I do not have the capability to make a fancy quiz through this blogging platform, please note your responses (the correct answer to each question is worth 1 point) and see the answers at the...

They Make It Look Easy

Dear Reader, Dancing is harder than it looks. Scratch that — anyone can get up on the floor bump, grind, and flail around—but that’s not the genre of dance to which I am referring. As is my custom, I have dived (dove?) headfirst into a new activity — a group dance class. Although I have... Continue Reading →

Matchmaker, Matchmaker

Dear Reader, Would you ever hire a matchmaker to find the love of your life? With the ubiquity of free dating apps out there and because I am a cheap person — No, no I would not pay for a matchmaker. However, through my own impulsivity, I briefly became a part of an executive matchmaking... Continue Reading →

There is a WAR in Ukraine and People are Dying

Dear Reader, By now, you know that there is a WAR in Ukraine and people are dying. If you’re embarrassed because you don’t know exactly what’s going on — don’t be— because like most things, the relationship between Russia and Ukraine is complicated.

The Breakup Post

Dear Reader, How’s your 2022 going so far? Mine is turning out to be complicated…. First, I tested positive for COVID-19 right after New Year’s in Germany (more here). Then, I had to endure a 7-day isolation in a Ferienwohnung (more here) and seriously alter my travel plans. Finally, and most recently, my boyfriend and I broke up. If... Continue Reading →

Miami in February??

Dear Reader, Are you ever tempted by cheap flight options? Yeah, me too. Having recently returned from Germany where the winter was rather mild and my adventure ended on an expectedly sour note (more here), I was eager to look into fun weekend trip options to flee the Boston cold. With that in mind, after... Continue Reading →

[Review] The Other Me

Dear Reader, When you look at your life do you see crossroads, where one directional deviation could change everything? For Kelly, this point came around her 17th birthday in high school. Twelve years later, in one reality she’s a starving artist in Chicago and in another she’s a “glorified housewife” in small-town Michigan. At the... Continue Reading →
