Some Call It Karma

Dear Reader, Do you believe in karma? Full disclosure, I barely believe in anything, but something that happened recently could easily be considered karma. A while back, I unofficially declared that November is the month to celebrate “giving” (more here). In the spirit of giving, I took the opportunity to give away many used items... Continue Reading →

A Delightful Day in November

Dear Reader, How is your November going? In Boston, the weather is all over the place! In many parts of the U.S., one can joke that the four seasons can blow through in a week’s time. In Boston, this exaggerated notion is as true as hyperboles can possibly be. The day before Halloween it snowed... Continue Reading →

Givers Ought Not Be Choosers

Dear Reader, Do you ever buy things on Facebook Marketplace? Through this Facebook feature, it is quite easy to coordinate the buying, selling, and delivering of items as small as used earrings to as big as a whole mattress in your community. After living in Boston for a few years, I have now had a... Continue Reading →

The Bumbling Beginner

Dear Reader, There are two types of people in this world, the specialists and the generalists. I am wholly in the latter category of people. I like to dabble. I pick up hobbies and drop them like the act is a hobby in itself. Kids are encouraged to try new things and they have access... Continue Reading →

Happy Halloween! — 2020

Dear Reader, Happy Halloween! I am so psyched to celebrate this holiday even during the pandemic. We are lucky that the weather is dry today, however, there is also snow on the ground this year! It snowed yesterday, which is kind of shocking in October even for Bostonians. Last year, I dressed up as a... Continue Reading →

Running Fool

Dear Reader, Are you a fan of cardiovascular exercise? While I would love to say “yes,” to be honest, I abhor the feeling of being out of breath, which makes it hard to wholeheartedly embrace cardio. Recently, I went on a hike to the Blue Hills Reservation with an outdoors group (more here). On that... Continue Reading →

Happy Trails

Dear Reader, “Having hobbies” is a hobby of mine that I take very seriously. I’m impulsive about it. With sites like MeetUp.com and Eventbrite.com it’s easy to pick up and drop hobbies like hot potatoes — and that’s just what I do. Because some restrictions on group gatherings are being lifted (despite the worsening pandemic situation... Continue Reading →

Curiouser and Curiouser

Dear Reader Do you remember childhood you? The one that read picture books and comics instead of newspapers, novels, magazines, and… blogs? Not too long ago, my mom sent me a picture of worksheet I completed in second grade (pictured below). On it was a list of questions to get us to consider the academic... 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 →

On Top of Mount Battie

Dear Reader, Not all small towns are created equal and Camden, Maine is far greater than its 26.65 square miles. Located on the water, Camden is a hub for sailing (more here), but also a great destination for hiking. A big draw to Camden is the Camden Hills State park. Most famously, the park is home...
