2019 in Review

As with every year when I write these, I’m not quite sure where the time has gone. Looking back on the year, it’s a bit of a mixed bag: there are lots of things I didn’t achieve, but there are also plenty that I did. I read 52 books, visited four new-to-me countries (Barbados, Latvia, Estonia, … More 2019 in Review

2018 in Review

Perhaps in 2019 I’ll get better at actually blogging again – dream big, kids! – but, for now, I couldn’t let 2018 pass by without doing my annual wrap-up. I traveled a fair bit, I saw lots of Broadway shows, and I ate good food. All in all, not too shabby. 2019, bring it on. … More 2018 in Review

2017 in Review

So…2017. Looking back, I’m not quite sure how to feel about this funny little year: it was a complete garbage fire for the world at large, but pretty successful, personally speaking. Let’s review. January: Kicked off the new year in London. Indulged in Pret-a-Portea at the Berkeley. Visited Fashion Rules at Kensington Palace. Took the loveliest … More 2017 in Review

2016 in Review

It seems everyone I know falls into one of two camps: those bemoaning what a dumpster fire 2016 was, and those arguing that, despite what everyone says, 2016 was actually pretty great for them. I myself fall somewhere in between: distressed at the state of the world in general, but feeling lucky on a personal level to … More 2016 in Review

2015 in Review

This is my favorite post to write each year, without a doubt. No matter what ups and downs occurred during the year, somehow looking back on it at the end makes everything seem pretty okay. I’ve forgotten the day-to-day annoyances and bigger problems, and all I see now are the highlights: the travel, the times with … More 2015 in Review

2014 in Review

Most of my years, if I’m being honest about it, are pretty ordinary – and I think that’s probably the case with most people. 2014, however? 2014 was not one of those ordinary years. I spent roughly half of the year traveling, and when I wasn’t traveling, I was doing other big things: graduating from … More 2014 in Review

2013 in Review

I am deeply, deeply nostalgic. Sometimes, this fact worries me, and I fear that I’m focusing too much on the past at the expense of the present. But at other times – such as the end of the year, when bloggers all across the land feel compelled to post “Year in Review” posts – my … More 2013 in Review

2012 in Review

2012 was a strange year. The first third was pretty mundane – law school, ordinary routines, and the like. The middle was spent in Chicago, where I had a fabulous summer. And the end was pure craziness, between flying around the country for job interviews and being overwhelmed with school work and extracurricular activities. To … More 2012 in Review
