Chi-Town Freedom [read: weekend trips just got a big upgrade]

Who managed to get to Chicago, attend an engagement party, and come back to Boston in 2 days? Oh, yours truly. It makes me feel so grown-up to fly out to Chicago for a weekend. The NYC weekend trips are great and all, but this requires a little more planning than a spontaneous bus ticket […]

On a Tiny Continent [read: return to Manhattan]

I had to take the bus. I’m not the happiest when it comes to buses, so my return to Manhattan on a bus fell a little short of the homecoming I’d wanted to have. The real homecoming, though, was with the most famous of French models over one of their (belated) birthdays. Yes, Lela back […]

Finally made it out to places I hadn’t been before (is there a song about this?), but now I can get tour guide certification and make the big bills. Day […]

NYC Reunion [read: French model reunion]

A little New York City is good for the soul. I’ve loved the city since Day 1. I was born in New Jersey so in my mind Manhattan was always within reach (now I realize that is false because commuting is a b*tch). I got back to Boston a few weeks ago and knew that I […]
