Wet, Hot, Coronavirus Summer

Dear Reader, Where is this coronavirus ‘thing’ headed anyway? This is a great question that you will, of course, not get a straight answer on. As is so often the case in the United States, this country is once again divided on the coronavirus issue. I scanned news articles today and categorized/ summarized the following...

Sunday Afternoon in Cambridge

Dear Reader, Today is the very last day of summer. In Boston, the trees are starting to change colors and pumpkins can be spotted sitting outside of storefronts. Despite the change in scenery, the last day of summer was surprisingly summery! This is significant, because Boston was already getting cooler weather in the beginning of... Continue Reading →

“Versions” of Our Selves

Dear Reader, Life can be a wild ride. I am currently in the midst of what I would consider to be a hectic time in my life. About a year ago, I started working a few different jobs, which now consume roughly about 87.5% of my waking hours. This can get exhausting, however, I share... Continue Reading →

Dear Reader, I woke up this morning feeling hungover from a difficult conversation I had last night. Dehydrated and sleep deprived, emotions rather than alcohol were the sources of this headache.

Saturday Solitude

Dear Reader, Humans are social creatures. From the dawn of time we have been born into families and have lived in communities.

I can be a pretty solitary person at times, but I’m still a human that... Continue Reading →

Complicating Bad

Dear Reader, This week has been a roller coaster of sorts. While there were some ups and downs, the most notable feature of this metaphorical thrill ride was that it had a tendency to accelerate from 0 to 100mph in no time at all. Now that it is Friday, I have taken the time to... Continue Reading →

Routine Resolutions

Dear Reader, Over the summer, I had a busy travel schedule and made trips to New York, the UK, the West Coast, and even Iceland. With the change in time zones, crazy schedules, and totally utter exhaustion, I took the summer as a time to overindulge on all fronts. While a piece of cake here... Continue Reading →

Waiting Game

Dear Reader, Everyone must wait. Like it or not, waiting seems to be an unfortunately time-consuming and necessary part of the human experience. Whether it’s standing in line for the bathroom, sitting at a table in a fancy restaurant, or refreshing our email for a college acceptance letter, waiting happens and happens often. Everytime I...
