When You Find What You Love

Dear Reader, Do you have any hobbies? More importantly, do you have any that you love? Weirdly, it wasn’t until recently that I discovered how valuable it can be to have an interest that fulfills you. Recently, I have gotten into the art of make believe (i.e. acting). Some gigs have been simple, like the... Continue Reading →

When on Winnipesaukee (Part 1)

Dear Reader How many of you would like a weekend to totally unplug? …I wouldn’t! I love technology and all that it has to offer, but I realize that I may not be in the majority on this one. Regardless, incidentally, I willingly walked myself into a no-tech (or rather “low-tech”) situation. With a group... Continue Reading →

Growing and Remaining

Dear Reader, Would you rather get the hard stuff out of the way quickly or just wait until it comes? Before my professor could finish her sentence asking for volunteers to write the first response papers for next week, my hand and several others had already shot up in the air in an attempt to...

Three Strangers Walk into a Bar

Dear Reader, If I were to live for 200 years, there would still be a number of things that I would never do. I would probably never have enough courage to go skydiving, enough money to stay in a penthouse suite in Monte Carlo, or enough time to read all the “great works of literature.”...

Dear Reader, If you don’t care about climate change, there is a good chance you are fortunate enough to live in a region that has been largely spared from its negative impacts. In fact, if you live in places like Boston, you can even trick yourself into believing that our warmer, drier summers and milder... Continue Reading →

Corona Who?

Dear Reader, The world smells differently when you don’t have a surgical mask pressed against your nose. I am so happy to be typing this as a fully-vaccinated gal! Not too long ago, the CDC updated its COVID-19 guidelines to permit fully-vaccinated adults to dispense with their masks in both outdoor and indoor locations (except... Continue Reading →

When It Ends

Dear Reader, At times, it can feel like we are expected to go from 100 to 0 without any in-between. In great literary and cinematic thrillers, the consumer is intrigued at the outset, the plot is jam-packed with twists and turns, and then boom! The story ends and you get a couple of pages of...

What Hurts The Most

Dear Reader, A curious thing about the human experience is that something that is commonplace to one individual may never, ever be experienced by another. While this sentiment can be applied to a variety of situations — privilege, prejudice, etc. — I’m specifically, thinking about pain. More, specifically, I’m thinking about my own personal plight...
