Hello Beautiful!

Dear Reader, I’m peacing out of Boston pretty soon for the summer (more here), which is causing me early onset nostalgia for this city that is, hands down, just gorge. I’m usually a fan of words, but today, I’m going to show you rather than tell you why this Boston is lit af. So, without... Continue Reading →

I’m Sorry About Your Move

Dear Reader, Moving is agony. As a kid, I grew up in one house, so my first real moving experience was into a college dorm room. Although boxing up clothing and finding twin XL bedsheets felt like a real pain at the time, as an adult with actual furniture, I now know that that move... Continue Reading →

An Ode to Coffee

Dear Reader, Today, I learned what an “ode” is. Simply put, it’s a poem glorifying a person, place or thing. Unlike limericks, haikus, and other rigorously constructed verse, odes can be more free form — rhyming or not, structured or not, etc.. Because I was facing writer’s block with another project, I have distracted myself... Continue Reading →

[Review] It

Dear Reader, Have you read it? And, by “it,” I actually mean It the 1,142-page horror novel by acclaimed author Stephen King. I know that you all know who Stephen King is, but have actually read It? I found the 1986 horror tome to be surprising, entertaining, and kind of dragging at some parts (blame... Continue Reading →

The Night Is Eternally Young

Dear Reader, There’s no place like college, and by college, I mean, the live-eat-sleep together experience. These past few days, I was fortunate enough to travel to Reykjavik, Iceland for a research program of sorts. During the week, we slept in shared rooms, ate some meals together, attended the same talks, walked to campus side-by-side,... Continue Reading →

Iceland – Know Before You Go!

Dear Reader, Life moves differently in Iceland. This may not come as a surprise to you if you digest those articles that wax lyrical about why the Nordic work-life balance (or should I say LIFE-work balance, as the emphasis falls more heavily on the former) reigns supreme. Now that I have had the pleasure of... Continue Reading →

Get Out of Dublin!

Dear Reader, If you ever find yourself in Ireland, make sure that you take the time to get out of Dublin. As the country’s capital and largest city, Dublin will likely be your point of entry to this beautiful island. However, if you have the time and the means, you would be doing yourself a...

One Island, Two Irelands

Dear Reader, How many of you know about the 400+ year conflict that simmered, raged, then (mostly) fizzled out in Ireland? If you do not know about the tension between the Irish Catholics and Protestants — no worries — I didn’t know very much either aside from the “highlights” that I learned in college and...
