A Big Welcome, Fall [read: finally]

I know, I know. It’s already the end of the summer for many of you and I’ve barely put summer recommendations out into the world. I wasn’t lying when I said I’d be a little off-the-grid while studying! Still, now that the seasons have changed, I’d like to just provide a snapshot of summer in […]

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 […]

Summer in Winter [read: annual visits, climate change is real]

Starting the new year just how I ended the last one: by the water, knowing a pineapple’s dropping in the distance, within 20 minutes from my house. It’s kind of an annual thing? This quick visit to the SRQ fell on Christmas Eve (first time flying on that day, not as hectic as all the […]

S&TC Turns 21! [read: Tiffany caught up]

Another year, another set of birthdays to attend. After a summer full of them, we finally hit the fall and Tiffany’s big 2-1 in New York City. This time, she asked pretty far in advance so I didn’t have to run across Grand Central, hop on the 6, and make it to surprise her 2 […]

Spooky Strolls [read: October as the leaves change color]

Sharon and I were supposed to do a lot of things this weekend that we didn’t do. Nope, instead we decided to go for a nice long walk. It’s been hitting the low 50s here (in degrees!) and it’s a nice transition from a summer full of heat waves to start wearing a scarf, getting […]

Happy First Day of Classes! [read: I’m on co-op, ha]

It seems to be the start of the collegiate school year this week (senior year, might I add!) and I’m not going to be joining everyone in class. Nope, I’ll be on glorious co-op. I work at an investment firm downtown, right on the edge of Boston’s Financial District, overlooking the harbor. Yes, it is […]

A Children’s Series? [read: the 8th book, 9 years later]

We all celebrated the birthday of The Chosen One this month. Yes, I’m talking about both Harry Potter and Eesha Ramanujam. You’ve seen Eesha before, as a photographer extraordinaire for some select events and as a friend of mine since our first year of college. Well, since she photographed my birthday, I went ahead and […]

21st Birthday [read: we’ve moved to Birthday Weekend status]

And to think 20 was where it all began. From birthday to birthday, we’ve upgraded to birthday weekend status this year. The big 2-1. Still not really sure how I feel about it. As much as I’d like to say I’m old and irrelevant, I’d say my friends did a pretty good job ignoring that […]

Bob Dylan Needs No Introductions [read: return to Tanglewood]

You ever have those weekends with friends when you realize the real way to maximize your time together is to literally spend every waking (and sleeping) moment together? It just makes it easier. Cuts out the middle man, the 15 minute walk back to grab clothes, the individual need for space. Sharon, an avid reader […]

Tangled in a Wood [read: just Tanglewood]

Remember my favorite vacation pastime? Looks like we’ve found another 3 favorite B’s to go with that Thanksgiving set of 3 B’s. And that is: Beach Boys. Berkshires. Becky. This weekend, I had the honor of going on a trip to Tanglewood, the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra (BSO) whose year-round home is a block from […]
