There’s no use in denying that time got away from me this semester. It’s somehow late November, Thanksgiving’s in a week, finals are in two weeks- and I’m still stuck somewhere back in early October. Running around between classes, labs, and interviews this semester has been chaotic and I’m finally in the home stretch, but there’s no shortage of work to be tackled before I can fly home. So, in the spirit… Read More

It’s been almost a month since I last posted. In my own defense, it has been one busy month. I finished off the summer soaking up the Borneo sun, and before I knew it I was somewhere over the Pacific trying to delude myself into forgetting that summer was, in fact, over. I stopped over in Chicago to see my sister, recover from the trip,  and consume as much delicious food as… Read More

Its a wet and foggy day for my last day in Boston, which is fine by me. I’ve been running around, finishing papers and closing the last boxes, and trying to let it sink in that my freshman year is over and I won’t be back in this city for four months. It’s a lot to take in. But there’s something comforting in the routine- it always feels the same, packing for… Read More

Quite accidentally, I walked from Northeastern to Cambridge last friday afternoon. The weather was so gorgeous me and a friend jumped on a chance to explore Boston by foot, and before we knew it an hour had turned into three and we had walked 5.5 miles.

Eventually we looped back towards Harvard square, arriving famished and exhausted…. Read More

I knew that St Patrick’s day would be big here, but until I pressed my way onto the T, I don’t think I fully understood the magnitude. Pressed in too tight for any notion of personal space, we clung to strangers in attempt to stay upright and fiercely determined to make our way to Southie.  But it was all pretty worth it to be apart of this green mob of college students and families, braving the 30-something degree… Read More

Colorado was everything I needed in a spring break: Blue skies, fresh powder, and a constant cycle of eat, sleep, hottub, repeat. Returning to Boston, it felt like I had been gone for months. The grey skies and getting back into a busy schedule took a bit of adjustment, but after a week of recharging in the rockies, being back in flow of things feels good. It always bittersweet for me around this… Read More

“I was born lost and take no pleasure in being found.” — John Steinbeck, Travels With Charley: In Search of America An expedition towards Cambridge got me and my roommate gloriously lost, but all’s well that ends in Toscanini’s devine ice cream and some good exploring!

Just some shots from my day of wandering around the city!
