Daily Stuff

Water bottle (Hydroflask)

My god I love my hydroflask. Call me a basic girl but it keeps things cold and it is quite durable. I also love a good Nalgene.

Pens (Muji)

The 0.5 Muji pens really changed the game. They make my handwriting better!

Crossword (The New York Times)

I do the mini pretty much every day. …


at the beach

I wrote one of these a couple months ago and I have more thoughts so here goes nothing.

Dear World (or whoever is reading this),

I need to get off my phone. I’m on it too much. My phone screen time used to average out to 2 or 3 hours…


Caught In-between is a series of stories highlighting and explaining my memories of growing up as an Indian-American in the United States.

Last week, I finished reading The Ensemble, by Aja Gabel, a cute book about a quartet of string players and their lives throughout the years. The book mentioned…


In January of 2020, I wrote an article about what writing daily affirmations for a month taught me. Yesterday, I filled up my daily affirmation & gratitude journal and wanted to reflect on my experience.

As probably expected, most of the people I watch regularly on Youtube are in their mid-20’s and produce lifestyle, beauty & travel content. These are in no particular order, but most of these content creators create quality content regularly, and I watch pretty much every one of their uploads. The…


I wrote a similar love letter to Boston, MA not too long ago. As someone who has spent a decent amount of time in New York City over the past months, I’ve realized how much I love and miss Concord, MA.

Great Meadows Wildlife Refuge at the end of summer.

Dear Concord,

Historic, beautiful, Concord. This is going to be a…


Me and the statue of liberty

Dear World (or whoever is reading this),

I’m tired. Every hour I let out a large sigh while I’m working. This next paragraph is all the stuff I’m sighing about.

I am sick and tired of this pandemic. I’m tired of indefinitely working from home and being nervous about a…

Tompkins Square Bagel with sun-dried tomato cream cheese and chicken sausage

Tompkins Square Bagels

A classic East Village breakfast spot. Perfect for a Sunday morning, post night out bagel. They have basically anything you could ever want to put on a bagel. I like their sun-dried tomato cream cheese, birthday cake cream cheese, as well as their chicken sausage and caramelized onions. You really…
