I’m Home…for a few hours

I’m back from New York (for a few hours at least…until I spend New Years with my friends David and Chad tonight)!!!  Vito and I managed to squeeze a lot into 25 hours. We arrived in New York City’s Chinatown around 1:30 PM on Wednesday. We jumped on the subway, bought a MetroPass (6 rides from […]

…and I’m off

Tomorrow morning I catch the Fung Wah bus for New York City. Vito and I plan to arrive around 12:30 and go to the Museum of Modern Art. Then we’re checking into the hotel and meeting up with my other friend, Chris for dinner. What happens after that will be a surprise to all of […]

Winter Wonderland

I love the unpredictability of New England weather. When I packed up to go to the Cape on Thursday morning, the meteorologists indicated bright and sunny days on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. After I’d arrived on Cape Cod, the meteorologists predicted a chance of some ocean-effect flurries over the Cape late Saturday night. By Friday […]

My New Ho-Ho-Home

Well, the holiday break has officially begun for me. I left work, went to class, and will not have to return to Harvard until January 3rd! WOO HOO! I love getting a week and a half vacation without having to use a single vacation day. Oh, and I finally took some pictures of my new […]

Ice, Ice, Baby

I don’t think I’ve ever seen the Charles River frozen so early in the season – it’s not even Christmas yet! I’m not sure if it’s frozen in the major basin along the Back Bay, but the section between the Charles River Dam and the Museum of Science has a sheet of ice on top of […]

A New Man

First off, thanks everybody for your comments yesterday. I wasn’t saying I thought I was fat, I just wanted people’s opinions as to whether that particular photo makes me look larger than I am (read: unflattering). I should probably consider taking some new ones. Anyway, being newly single has made me realize a few things. […]

Does This Website Make Me Look Fat?

As many of you know, I’ve used the internet in the past to make friends. In act, over the years, Ive made some really good friends that I hang out with regularly. Recently, I’ve made two friends this way and upon meeting me, they both said I was smaller-framed than they had though based on my profile […]

Retailers Suck

I hate mail-in rebates. I bought a computer at Best Buy last week with a tickets price of around $769. But look closely and there’s a tiny little number above it with a price of $1,069. THAT’s what you pay at the counter. Then they print out all of these rebate forms and it’s up […]

Sound Conditioned

That’s what the front of my new GE brand dishwasher says in my new apartment. It made me all excited…reminiscent of the Maytag machine Matt and I had in a prevoius condo. When that thing was on, you could barely tell it was on. The only thing you’d hear was the water draining out during […]

Pieces of Me

Unbenknownst to me, by trusty Eddie Bauer bookbag has crapped out on me. The zipper doesn’t appear to be gripping so as I’m out and about during my commute, the bag gradually opens up. Unfortunately, I don’t notice when it happens.  I’m not sure how many personal artifacts I’ve left throughout city – I’ve not […]
