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 […]

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] […]

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 […]

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 […]

As you know, we’ve done some spooky strolls, but let’s take that a little further and keep exploring past the usual places [read: BU] and into new neighborhoods. Algiers Coffee House, Mint Coffee It was a […]

Is that a gust of wind I feel? Break out the scarves, Pumpkin Spice Latte is back and so is fall in the Northeast. Okay, but only a little because it’s still sweltering hot every other day. Very confusing, hot and cold, yes and no, leaving us wondering what it’ll be like on the regular. […]

Summer sure flew on by. This was my first summer in Boston, and I’d been waiting to see what would make it memorable. I wanted to get a head start on my Boston Bucket List (more to come on that) but summers are for relaxing, sometimes procrastinating, on everything. Let’s avoid our responsibilities together. Stingray BodyArt Being […]

Those of you who aren’t in the Northeast, consider yourselves blessed and lucky. Heat waves are no lie. They’re so true, in fact, that an 80 degree day required 3 outfit changes at the very least as the heat escalates throughout the day. So, this month, let’s cool off. Pavement Coffeehouse, Iced Green Mint Tea […]

This is a new segment on this written show of Sneha’s life. {insert music here} It’s not as morbid as you would think. It’s just the theme of the month: stories of ‘happy’ or ‘awestruck’ tears in honor of April showers, plus I figured I was running out of long nostalgic things to write about so I’d […]
