Hello Beautiful!

Dear Reader, I’m peacing out of Boston pretty soon for the summer (more here), which is causing me early onset nostalgia for this city that is, hands down, just gorge. I’m usually a fan of words, but today, I’m going to show you rather than tell you why this Boston is lit af. So, without... Continue Reading →

The Night Is Eternally Young

Dear Reader, There’s no place like college, and by college, I mean, the live-eat-sleep together experience. These past few days, I was fortunate enough to travel to Reykjavik, Iceland for a research program of sorts. During the week, we slept in shared rooms, ate some meals together, attended the same talks, walked to campus side-by-side,... Continue Reading →

Iceland – Know Before You Go!

Dear Reader, Life moves differently in Iceland.

Dear Reader, For most of us, pandemic-era meeting restrictions are behind us, which means more freedom to get out and about! One of the biggest changes for me has been the return to working in public places, or more specifically, in coffee shops. Right at the start of the pandemic (you know, when we thought...

Miami in February??

Dear Reader, Are you ever tempted by cheap flight options? Yeah, me too. Having recently returned from Germany where the winter was rather mild and my adventure ended on an expectedly sour note (more here), I was eager to look into fun weekend trip options to flee the Boston cold. With that in mind, after... Continue Reading →

Can you beat jet lag?

Dear Reader, Have you ever suffered from jet lag? And, I do mean “suffered” rather than “experienced.” While I have experienced tiredness and have gone to bed a little too early or too late on occasion after flying, I feel that today is truly my first experience suff-er-ing from jet lag. First, what is jet... Continue Reading →
