So we are closing on the house next week and then moving in a week later. At that point, I’ll have a 6 mile bike ride to work or a 45 minute bus ride, with a transfer. I’m going to opt for the bike ride. I’ve biked year round before, when I worked for the […]

I am so damn anxious

On Sunday, I went down to Chicago with my mom, aunt, cousin, and sister to pick up my other cousin from the train station. We drove to Harvard and then took the train downtown. Originally, I was just going to snap a few photos of the train to share with my Ukrainian friends back home […]
