Weekend Recap: Boston

For seven of the last nine years (nine?! woah) I’ve lived outside of Massachusetts. First, I was in Florida for college. Then, Connecticut. Now, New York.

Book Review: Where the Missing Go

If you don’t like murder mysteries, this is not the novel for you. If you’re a psychological thriller junkie like I am, you should add it to your cart.

Listen Up: My Favorite Podcasts

Before I started commuting from Connecticut to New York every day, I did not understand the whole podcast thing. Whenever I tried listening to one, I found myself focusing in on the host’s voice and, frankly, letting it bug me to death. For those of you that have heard me speak, you’re probably rolling your […]

Oui ou Non? My Guide to Paris

I’ve been talking about going to Paris for the last couple of years, but for one reason or another it never worked out. I had been with my family as a kid, but I was too young to fully appreciate it. Earlier this fall, I finally said YOLO! I asked my best friend from home, […]
