A Year Ago

In a few days, it’ll be a year since I graduated from a place I have come to call my second home đź’™ — a place where I met amazing people, learned from world-class professors, and finally solidified my career ambitions. Since wearing that cap and gown, listening to the inspiring speakers at my commencement, and…

Merry Days

In a few days, we’ll take in the last of 2016 and enter 2017 with a fresh, inspired outlook complete with ambitious resolutions and goals. But until then, we can get away with eating way too many desserts (like these macarons), shopping (mostly for warm blankets and delicious-smelling candles), and relaxing during this holiday season. Happy holidays!

Some Light Reading

Hurricane Matthew caused damage to so many families, homes, and cities. I was fortunate to have a home to go back to—away from the storm—and took advantage of the time off from work to bury myself in some books while keeping an eye on several storm trackers. C U R R E N T  R E A…

New Routines

Since graduation, I’ve done quite a bit of writing, packing, moving, organizing, and thinking. Transitioning from being a full-time student to working has been far from easy but over the past few weeks, I’ve established a few new routines (mostly to occupy myself during the weekends) and spending hours in coffee shops has been one of them✌️ –happy weekend!

Between the Lines

There’s a certain danger in taking up a hobby as a steady commitment – the excitement that comes with experimenting gets suppressed by a drive to find perfection, or something decent enough to share. When I took a photography class last semester, our professor encouraged us to value the process, not the product. He made an effort to…

Night Life

Cloudy Days

As a fan of sunlight, green grass, and bright study spots, I was slightly disappointed to see gray skies and wet mud as I walked around campus today. But once I sat at my desk, equipped with study fuel (iced hazelnut coffee), I realized that this cloudy day wasn’t all that gloomy. Looking outside from the comfort of…

Pure Imagination

In an attempt to check off as many sites as we could from our “To See” list, our first day at Yellowstone was quite jam-packed. By the time we saw most of the geysers and hot springs, we arrived at Old Faithful just as the sun was setting. In this light, the scene was even…

Marine Lab

 I left for our school’s Marine Lab five weeks ago, not quite ready to go back to school after a measly week at home. These five weeks have not been the easiest (I took a Physics course that was much more intense than I had expected), but it was definitely a rewarding experience. I learned a…
