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, soย it’s important to have a healthy dose of criticism, serious self-reflection on […]

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 […]

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. […]

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.

Guide to an Unplugged Weekend [read: much needed ‘Me Time’]

It’s great to hit the ground running. But, honestly, the past month has been all running non-stop 100% of the time. If you sneak a peek at that agenda, you’ll know just how much I’ve been running. Andย I neededย a break. With two papers to write, applications to submit, a full-time job, an organization of 1,400 […]
