This is me, this is also me

Dear Reader, Who are you really? This question is best asked in context. You may be a musician professionally, a husband at home, and an anarcho-socialist politically. However, who are you when you have nothing or nobody to relate yourself with? That is to say — who are you when you are completely and utterly... 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 →

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 →

Not Normal, Not Close

Dear Reader, We have now entered the “new normal” era of the pandemic, but how long will it last? Recently, I ventured out to a restaurant outside of Boston in Arlington called Menotomy (fun fact, the town of Arlington was known as “Menotomy” until 1867). To follow the pandemic health guidelines, we chose outdoor seating.... Continue Reading →

Stranger in a Familiar Land

Dear Reader, I am geographically repressed. Since the start of the pandemic lockdowns in Massachusetts until yesterday (aka about 115 days), I had literally only visited one establishment. In this time period, I have paced near endlessly up and down the hallways of my apartment building and have strolled outside in the open air. While... Continue Reading →

When Life Gives You Gym Shorts

Dear Reader, Along with baking (more here), I seem to have picked up another kind of fun pandemic activity — mask making. I must stress the words “kind of fun,” because, half the time, sewing for me is just finding myself at the wrong end of the needle or undoing mis-strewn threads. Regardless, I am...

Case by Case

Dear Reader, If you’ve read the news recently, you probably saw that Florida is the new coronavirus hotspot in the U.S.. Specifically, on July 12, the Florida Department of Health reported at least 15,299 new COVID-19 cases for that day — yikes! The coronavirus situation in the U.S. is atrociously bad and you don’t need... Continue Reading →

A Long Road Ahead

Dear Reader, To compare the pandemic to a “war” would be disrespectful to anyone who has actually lived through such a conflict, however, it is important that we understand in the gravest of terms just how serious the ongoing coronavirus situation is. Yesterday, I learned that 41-year old Broadway actor Nick Cordero died from COVID-19.... Continue Reading →

The Crisis as an Opportunity

Dear Reader, We’re almost exactly halfway into the year 2020! I don’t want to be that annoying person, but… how are your New Year’s resolutions coming along? If you did make resolutions this year, this is a reminder to check in on your goals. I annually make resolutions and try to stick to them; however,... Continue Reading →
