Dear Boston

I came to Boston as an 18yr old who thought she knew everything.

Like most college bound students.  But on that September day in 1998, as my parents drove away in their Subaru,  I stood in my dorm room on Hemenway Street and I had never felt more scared.  Because I didn’t know everything. And who would teach me now?

Community – or my obligatory “Sex and the City”* post

I recently saw an article about the Sex and the City shows and what had become of the series and its legacy.  And this quote really hit me:  “What if it were the story of a woman who lost herself in her thirties, who was changed by a poisonous, powerful love affair, and who emerged, finally, surrounded by her friends?.”  And it had me thinking about what the show had meant for me in my life.  Ya know, just like every other single gal living in a city has wondered.  So add me to the list.

How Jewish Are You? Part II

Recently I wrote about being Jewish and how it impacts my dating life. Lately, though, I’ve been thinking about my Jewish identity through a different lens, one that encompasses more than whether it’s important or not that my mate be Jewish.  One that is about my own personal Jewish identity.

My evolving love affair with bars*

I can’t remember my first time at a bar alone.  It was most likely in London as that was where I discovered the wonderful sense of freedom and excitement that came with going out by myself; whether it be to a show, a movie, a restaurant, or my local.

Can you tell me how to get to…

Sesame Street?!  I would imagine most of you grew up on this incredible show.  I know, for me, it had a huge impact on my life.  Especially the memories I have of watching it with my family, especially the afternoons that my dad, sister, and I would watch it and then wait on the porch steps to wait for my mom to come home from work.  Aw.

So I was pretty excited when I got tickets to the Independent Film Festival Boston‘s opening night viewing of Being Elmo.  The film is the story of Kevin Clash, the man behind Elmo.  It was a really amazing film and I definitely recommend seeing it when it is, hopefully, released soon.

After the show the director, Constance Marks, Clash himself, AND Elmo answered questions for the crowd.  It was fantastic and definitely left me feeling so grateful for what Sesame Street and the Muppets have meant to my life.
