Reading Deprivation

I'm flipping the script in today's post, meaning I plan to tell you about what I haven't been reading instead of what I have, or rather, why I am not reading at the moment. I'm participating in an experiment this...

A Glimpse of Summer

I had almost forgotten about the feeling of that sweet exhale summer break brings until now. I don't know if what I'm doing 100% qualifies as a "break" since I am working a lot and still managing to keep my...

Our Neighbors at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

Hi guys! This week I took the opportunity, as a fairly new resident to the Boston area, to explore our neighbors at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. I have heard a lot about this museum and have been itching to...

Books and Adaptations

Hello again! I am back in Boston as of late last night (early this morning) and they weather is gorgeous. I read many great books while abroad including a thriller/mystery series. My sister-in-law had obtained a collection of books from...

The Summer Interlude

Well readers, I was right - my enthusiasm for school seems to be dutifully returning now that I've had a sufficient break. My online class, LIS456: Records Management, starts in a week and I am looking forward to it. As...

Greetings from Amarillo, Texas--home of the Big Texan 72 oz. Steak Challenge, truly epic thunderstorms, and according to a 2016 article by The Weather Channel, it's the windiest city in America. Another fun fact? A-Town's record wind speed clocked in...

Summer is Here!

Within the past two to three weeks the weather has finally warmed up! Today it was 85 degrees outside! Can you believe it?! I can barely believe that just a few short weeks ago I was wearing a parka. Practically...

The Prettiest Afternoon

I went on a lovely little outing this past Saturday! I met a friend at Copley Square and we went to treat ourselves at L.A. Burdick's, an amazing and decadent chocolatier that I highly suggest you try at least once...

First Semester: Complete!

As of 11:55 PM last night, my first semester at Simmons is over! Not that I was counting the minutes or anything. All of my lectures are done, readings completed, and my final project has been TURNED IN! Even though...

The Boston Marathon!

The Boston Marathon was yesterday and what a day for it! Being a new resident of the Northeast, I was not too keen on how big of a deal this was for the residents of Boston. Of course, I have...
