Life of a Groupie [read: a weekend of celebrating accomplishments]

As you all probably know, I’m not the only one graduating this year! Of friends spread out in the Northeast, I’m just one of the four you’re most acquainted with: Tiffany and Melissa graduated from New York University and Lela will have graduated from Drexel University by the time this is posted. This past weekend, […]

Wicked Wondahful [read: day in Portland, ME]

Never have I ever heard so many great New England accents talkin’ about lobstah and havin’ a wondahful stay than on my 7 hour adventure to Portland, Maine! As the weekends come up, I get ready to get out of Boston and out to another landmark city close by. This Sunday, Paola and I took […]

Handpicked: May 2017

A month ago it was spring and now it’s summer and, yes, I am feeling just as fickle as the seasons do. Every day is an up or a down and I’ve learned to take it in stride. This has been a month of understanding change, redefining myself [read: no longer an English major but […]

My Ideal English Major [read: broadly speaking]

One of my final courses in college was, ironically, Introduction to Literary Studies. It’s actually been a course that’s given me much more than I’d expected; by procrastinating, I wound up taking a course for reflection at the very end of my undergraduate career. On our first day, we were tasked with reading Mark Edmunson’s […]

Jersey Shorin’ [read: flyin’]

Enter college recreational road trip! My goal this summer, while being in Boston studying for the LSAT, is to have something so incredible in the city to keep me here on the weekends or a beach to escape to otherwise. This weekend was the latter, with a nice trip down to the Jersey Shore! Eesha, […]

Graduation [read: onwards or something]

What’s a graduate? It’s me, it’s me! Sorry, that was lame. After four great years at Northeastern University [read: yes, 4 years, I’m dumb and didn’t do the fabulous 5 everyone else does] it’s time to move on because I have to. That’s right, they don’t let you stay forever. I’ll just be discussing the […]

[Handpicked: April 2017]

Spring has finally sprung! That being said, it’s still raining so I don’t particularly go outside any more than I did in the winter. Oh well, the thought is nice. Also, as the semester wraps up, I’m finding my time here winding down day by day. Graduation inches closer, I get older, everyone cries [read: just me] […]

[Handpicked: February/March 2017]

Ah yes, managing to uphold my only non-resolution to still be late on posting here on this site. I’ve got to say life has really caught up to me, so I apologize if you’ve been seeking my monthly recommendations and I’ve fallen short. I promise, since it’s still winter in Boston, you’ve got plenty of time […]

[Handpicked: January 2017]

Welcome to the new year! A little late, as usual, but that’s okay. I’ve given up making a resolution about doing things in a timely manner. Time is but a construct, my friends. This month, I came back to a very cold Boston (yet one that’s not as cold as usual, because climate change) so […]

Women’s March on Washington [read: first steps]

I’ll start with this: I’ll be talking about my observations about the march I attended last weekend in D.C. and they are both good and bad. There are issues with every single movement, even if it is the largest demonstration in our history, so it’s important to have a healthy dose of criticism, serious self-reflection on […]
