I feel a bit sheepish for how little I’ve posted in this blog over the past few months. It’s amazing how life can just sweep you away in its immediacy and leave things like being able to sit down and reflect on things one would want to articulate thoughts about at the wayside. In fact,… Continue reading Spring Resolutions!
Like every year, Facebook allows its users to condense an entire year into a small array of photos and statuses from the year so that people can look back fondly over 2014. Most people that have done so have commented how “good” 2014 has been and that they are sad to see it go. However,… Continue reading 2014 in Review
I can officially announce this! I waited until everything was more or less confirmed (roommates, movers, car, et al) before putting it out there. But it’s official! At the end of June (after A Midsummer Night’s Swing), I will be leaving the Big Apple for Pigtown. When I moved to New York City, I did… Continue reading I’m Moving to Baltimore!

Because for better or… Continue reading 2013 – A Year in Review (according to Facebook)

Newly graduated, I did not have any jobs lined up (and not for lack of want or… Continue reading What Do I Want To Be When I Grow Up?
After a summer of (mostly) joyous abandonment, it’s time for fall. And while half of my Facebook feed talks of new classes and returning to campus, I set out on a whole other adventure. Arriving in New York City was a surreal experience, probably enhanced from the all-nighter I pulled at SONH Sunday night. It… Continue reading How To Be The “New Kid”
I have started this letter over five times, trying to describe exactly how I’ve felt about the past seven years.
