Reevaluating New Year’s Resolutions

Lately it seems like New Year’s Resolutions have acquired a bad rep. My inbox was full of newsletters extolling the death knell for the annual tradition and citing the hype around “committing” to unrealistic goals as responsible for our failure to live up to them. But I’m not sure overinflated...

A note on stasis

You know what you shouldn’t do when you’re trapped in a holding pattern, and you’re sure of…absolutely nothing other than your cat’s undying love? You should not binge-watch The Good Wife.  For the past few weeks while waiting for news of my PhD application, I’ve lived and...

Is Travel Writing Dead? (and other weekend reads)

Last weekend, I found myself juggling visitors, personal projects, and my peace of mind. Juggling is decidedly not my forté. I chose two out of three and let my writing projects slide.
