Merry Christmas — Lite

Dear Reader, Merry Christmas!! And what a Christmas it has turned out to be! Christmas time is the “most wonderful time of the year,” but does this sentiment ring true in 2020? I, like very many of you out there, was unable to have a family gathering this Christmas. Scrolling through Facebook, I see that... Continue Reading →

Eat Me

Dear Reader, Do you have a sweet tooth? I certainly did (and I have the cavities to prove it!). Hundreds of years ago, sugar was known as a “fine spice,” however, today, you would be hard pressed to find products without even a dash of added sugar. Believe it or not, even my Listerine mouthwash... Continue Reading →

Manic Pixie Dream Film

Dear Reader, I have a movie that I hold near and dear to my heart and I bet you’ve never heard of it. For some reason, I have the uncanny ability of loving unpopular or obscure things. For example, when I was a teen, I was obsessed with the 2006 “Superman Returns” movie and watched... Continue Reading →

Something Nice

Dear Reader, Whether you celebrate it or not, there is no escaping the Christmas tide that swells across America the second Thanksgiving Thursday flips to Black Friday. I, like many of you, will not be going home to see family and friends this year, as a necessary precaution to help stop the spread of COVID-19.... Continue Reading →

Thanksgiving à la COVID

Dear Reader, Happy belated Thanksgiving. How was your holiday in the age of COVID-19? Surprisingly for me, my Thanksgiving did not look too different from last year. Last year, I went to a restaurant with my boyfriend and a friend for a small Thanksgiving dinner (more here). This year, instead of three at a restaurant,... Continue Reading →

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 →

The Spirit of Giving

Dear Reader, This greeting comes long overdue, but “happy November!” If you divide the months into four quarters, the last and — perhaps, most eventful — quarter would be October, November, December. I am just now coming down from my Halloween hype (more here) and the election excitement (regardless of your political affiliation, that was doozy... 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 →

You’re Only Born Once

Dear Reader, First, I would like to wish all of you Libras out there at happy birthday! It’s your time 🙂 Now, on the topic of birthdays, I present to you the “birthday problem.” If you’ve ever taken statistics, you may already be familiar with this fun phenomenon. Simply, it is stated that in a... Continue Reading →

The Summer of ‘20

Dear Reader, This morning when I pulled open the front door and stepped outside, I was greeted by a bright blue sky and crisp autumn air. While I was still dressed in shorts, I did have enough sense to put on a light cardigan after seeing that the morning temperature was a mere 57 degrees.... Continue Reading →
