SEPTEMBER 2018 | Wrap-Up

September has come and gone faster than I thought possible, especially considering how much has happened in the past month. It's hard to believe that we're already five weeks into the semester! Here's what I've been up to: In September I read a total of 8 books: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo… Continue reading SEPTEMBER 2018 | Wrap-Up

AUGUST 2018 | Wrap-Up

What a month August was! I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels like August is a month of transition. Perhaps this feeling has been instilled in me from decades of back-to-school prep, but it nevertheless rings true every year. Here's what I've been up to this past month: In August I read a… Continue reading AUGUST 2018 | Wrap-Up

Looking Back on 2017

For the past few years I've made one of these posts reflecting on the concluding year. After reading what I wrote at the end of 2015 and 2016, it hit me just how much has happened in 2017. I got accepted to study abroad for an academic year at Oxford University. My friends and I… Continue reading Looking Back on 2017

APRIL 2017 | Wrap-Up

April is one of those months where you never really know quite what to expect. This is especially true in New England, when the weather can be freezing and rainy one day and gloriously sunny the next. Though we definitely had our share of ups and downs weather-wise this month, life has been steadily looking… Continue reading APRIL 2017 | Wrap-Up

AUGUST 2016 | Wrap-Up

I've always considered August to be one of my favorite months. Not only does it bring a new school year and a promise of the coming autumn, but it also allows you to enjoy the last few weeks of summer without baking in July's toasty heat. This August was no exception, from both a reading… Continue reading AUGUST 2016 | Wrap-Up

My First Year of College Is.. Over?!?!

Why yes, it's really me-- I'm back!! Yesterday I moved out of my college dorm for summer vacation and it's a strange, wonderful, and bittersweet feeling. Although I vividly remember August orientation like it was just the other weekend (so. many. icebreakers.) it also seems like I've been waiting an eternity for the end of second… Continue reading My First Year of College Is.. Over?!?!

Looking Back at 2015

2015 was a crazy year. College acceptance letters arrived in my mailbox. I found out that I possibly have exercised induced anaphylaxis (it's a long story). I decided to attend Wheaton College in Norton, MA. I saw Walk the Moon perform at the House of Blues in Boston. I survived (and passed!) 4 AP exams.… Continue reading Looking Back at 2015

On Reading in College and Being Home

What's that distant cheering I hear? Oh, it must be the sound of my bookshelves rejoicing over the fact that I'm finally on winter break. I've been home twice since move-in day in August-- for Columbus Day weekend and Thanksgiving-- but both of my stays have been really more like visits. Four or five days is not nearly enough… Continue reading On Reading in College and Being Home
