Wandering Around Woodstock

  A few weekends ago, my little sister and I set off on a true New England adventure. I wanted to take full advantage of the long weekend, due to Columbus Day, and explore a little closer to home. I made a plan and all but demanded Emily join me on a quick trip to Vermont. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile: drive up 93, see family, and peep some fall leaves. I did, however, also want to visit Woodstock. I had only heard amazing things about this little town a little ways up north. My dad…

How I Knew I Wanted to Be a Teacher

  At the beginning of the summer, our local newspaper interviewed me for a story, which was pretty weird. My college had sent out an article they wrote because I had spoken at our convocation ceremony, but locally, they picked up the story because they loved the angle: I come from a long line of teachers and I am following right in the footsteps that were all but drawn out for me.   The local news sent in a photographer on the very first day I subbed in Newport. All I could think was, nothing like making a scene right…

Books That Changed My Life

    My father and I have been watching “The Great American Read” on PBS and it got me thinking about the books that changed my life. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been an avid reader. As a child I had rows and rows of picture and chapter books, while my parents filled the walls of our home with classic titles and crowded shelves. Reading let me escape, helped me learn, and kept me entertained for hours on end. These books are quite dear to me- if you haven’t read them, I would highly recommend.   ONE//…

What to Do When You Get the Dream Job

    I came to a really terrifying realization the other day. I’m twenty two years old and the next major milestone in my life will be my wedding. Pretty sure I’m still internally screaming as I type this. A few weeks ago, a day before school started, I got hired to teach fifth grade science in Newport. It was exactly what I wanted and exactly what I’d worked so hard for. Teaching has consumed the good majority of my time these past four weeks and I’m amazed at how exhausted, invested, and fulfilled I feel. There’s something unimaginable about…

Day to Day

Please, Don’t Ask Me Again

  “Sometimes what we want doesn’t happen when or how we want it to. But that doesn’t mean the answer is “no” it just means the answer is “not now.” – Sarah Centrella   No matter how you ask it, it’s all the same question. What have you been up to? What are your plans for the fall? How’s the job hunt going? Why aren’t you employed yet? It feels like, ever since May, the badgering has been insistent. Like the only thing anyone is allowed to ask a new graduate is whether they’ve lined up an opportunity in which…

This One’s For the Girls

  “Female friendships that work are relationships in which women help each other belong to themselves.” – Louise Bernikow   One Saturday night, a few weekends ago, I was sitting around a roaring fire with a group of friends. For a moment, everything went a little out of focus. I didn’t register what was happening, or notice the brief sadness filling my chest, but I still sank a little deeper. Then, a small hand reached out and took mine. It squeezed gently, bringing me back. We didn’t need to look at each other, didn’t need to acknowledge anything. It was…
