Looking Forward, Looking Back

Dear Reader, Men and women sometimes seem like completely different creatures. Perhaps, this is why heterosexual relationships can be so complicated sometimes. In my very small circle of acquaintances, I have noticed a striking pattern when it comes to romantic relationships. My female acquaintances, on average, tend to look forward, while my male acquaintances, on... Continue Reading →

[Review] Heartburn

Dear Reader, Sometimes, when you are feeling down, a nice pick-me-up like an ice cream Sunday or glass of wine can be oh-so satisfying. While I, at times, partake in these little indulgences, I also very much enjoy listening to comedic audiobooks for some much-needed amusement. Lately, I have been listening to books that deal...

[Review] In the Dream House

Dear Reader, Domestic abuse comes in all forms, yet U.S. law and popular culture primarily focus on physical violence that men have committed against women. While this description of abuse is prevalent and serious, it does not encapsulate the problem. What is missing from this narrative, however, is the wide spectrum of abuse including emotional,...

[Review] A Beautiful, Terrible Thing

Dear Reader, If you are married to someone who has cheated on you, you may harbor hope deep down in your heart that your partner will change. If you are married to someone who is suffering from an addiction, you will do anything in your power to help your partner get help and recover. However,... Continue Reading →

A Peek into the Dollhouse

Dear Reader, Do you know those big, antique dollhouses that you can open in half and peer into all rooms? These dollhouses allow you to see every tiny detail within the interior and see how the spaces connect and relate to each other. There is a style of movie that I enjoy that reminds me...

That Hole Where Friendships Used to Be

Dear Reader, How do friendships fit into your life? Naturally, we tend to make friends with the people around us and with the people who share our interests. If you think about your own friends (from any point in your life), you can probably group these individuals into categories, for example work friends, school friends,... Continue Reading →

Pumpkin Time!

Dear Reader, Not all hours are created equal. This week for me has been filled with work. Our team has a big project in December that we already must devote much of our attention to. Even this week, we met for a few hours on Sunday, because we just wouldn’t have had the time to... Continue Reading →

When Dreams are a Wake-Up Call

Dear Reader, Did you know that ‘oneirology’ is the scientific study of dreams? While many people are interested in the meanings of dreams, these scientists study the correlation between brain functions and dreaming. My interest in dreams is superficial and not very scientific, however, I wanted to share a dream with you that I had.... Continue Reading →

Cinderella Syndrome

Dear Reader, All work and no play makes Jack a very dull boy. On the scale of work and life, this weekend for me was extraordinarily heavy on the work side. I am currently struggling with graduate school applications and have spent a large amount of time on formulating a research question. I have calculated... Continue Reading →
