Accidentally sent this post off a little prematurely a while ago- so if you’re getting this a second time, a friendly reminder that shouting profanities at your laptop screen will not unclick that button you didn’t mean to click. Live and learn. Anyways, this post is coming to you from a stress free zone. That’s right, the light at the end of the finals tunnel has arrived- aka final grades have been… Read More

It was an awesome treat to roll up to a campsite this beautiful after spending too much time stuck in the city. Would definitely recommend the Crawford Notch Campground to any New Englanders looking for an autumn adventure! Read about my weekend in the woods here. “We are now in the mountains and they are in us, kindling enthusiasm, making every nerve quiver, filling every pore and cell of us.” ― John… Read More

When you start having dreams about stereochemistry and the reproductive cycle of plants, you know it’s time to give yourself a break. After a brutal lineup of midterms last week, I got my break by getting out of Boston for the weekend- and thank god. There is nothing like trying to light a fire on a freezing cold morning to make you forget all the mundane stresses of college life. So four of… Read More

The crisp wind whipping past me as I boarded my flight back to Boston was just one more jolting reminder of the thought I’ve spent all week avoiding: Summer is over. The last few months have been filled with grand travels and constant motion. Not once was it lacking in adventure, but as I descend into Boston, it feels as though it has barely been summer at all. Of course, the city… Read More

An overnight adventure in the Colorado flattops. Another month spent camping my way through Iceland. Two weeks spent with my family and friends sailing, swimming, and surfing our way around Indonesia. It’s been one hell of a summer. Just to stay still for awhile after two months of constant motion (a different place every few days) is a relief. I’ll be playing out the rest of my summer days behind a laptop,… Read More

Sitting at my desk in downtown Boston last Thursday, I was watching sheaths of rain hit the windows and wondering when June would feel like making an appearance . What I wanted was a bit of real summer. What I wanted was the mountains. Good thing I know a place for that- it just so happens that it’s halfway across the country. But what are homes for, if not to drag all… Read More

You forget how easy it can be to let the familiar holdings of your life become invisible to you. From the tree-lined streets you pass on the way to WholeFoods to the towering glass facades of downtown at rush hour, the city that you had once only dreamt of spending your days in can fade into the hazy blur of routine. Luckily, something will usually snap you out of this before too… Read More

Happy Day-After-Earth-Day! Seeing as this spinning ball of dirt hurling through the universe is the only one we can survive on (or at least, the only one that has chocolate, which is pretty much the same thing) I’m thinking that it deserves to be celebrated a while longer than, say, Talk Like a Pirate Day. Or Clergy Appreciation Day. Or National Date Nut Bread Day. All of which exist and are celebrated… Read More
