Fall Phase Two

Dear Reader, Daylight Saving Time ended today in the United States. Although I woke up early this morning, I wore sunglasses on my morning commute because we have fallen back one hour. The days are becoming shorter and the nights are beginning earlier. We are now in phase two of fall. If I were to... Continue Reading →

A Love to Listen

Dear Reader, Are you more of a people watcher or a people listener? I, myself, am the latter — an eavesdropper of sorts. Some people are perfectly content to sit on a park bench and watch peoples’ lives unfold briefly before them, like a silent movie. I, however, would much rather turn my back to... Continue Reading →

Happy Halloween to All!

Harvard Arts Museum, Cambridge, MA, fall 2019 Dear Reader, Happy Halloween! Did you dress up this year? As a 20-something with an office job, I did indeed go to work today… but I did it in style. I woke up at 6am and turned my kitchen into a studio as I piled on layers of... Continue Reading →

Dear Reader, Today, my job took me to a Halloween party at an apartment building in Cambridge. Upon entry into the lovely modern lobby, my team was ushered upstairs to the community room.

Then, if you squinted, I’m sure you would see fainter lines connecting me to some places I’m more likely to visit, like my favorite cafe or... Continue Reading →

I am currently trying to write a research proposal for graduate school applications and it feels like everyone already took all the interesting research ideas. Where to start? Everytime I stumble upon... Continue Reading →

The (Other) Windy City

Dear Reader, Boston is in the midst of a Nor’easter. Apparently, I slept through the worst of it. However, in the middle of the night, my boyfriend and others were caught in the rain (a downpour really that went as much down as it did side to side). Roofs were damaged, trees split in half,...

Incidental Street Fair

Dear Reader, Today there was a street fair in Harvard Square. The roads were closed and vendors and food trucks lined the sidewalks. Although I love these sorts of events, I found it to be very strange that I did not hear about the street fair until I was walking in the area this morning... Continue Reading →
