What we’ve got here is a failure to communicate

Cool Hand Luke said it best. The MBTA Commuter Rail System embodies it like no other. If you need a proof point, look no further than this morning’s fiasco. The snapshot: thousands of rush-hour passengers – taking Framingham/Worcester, Needham, Franklin, Fairmount, Providence/Stoughton, Middleborough/Lakeville and Kingston/Plymouth Lines – boarded their usual morning trains with the reasonable […]

The Boston Holiday Scene: Then and Now

It may not seem like it with the unseasonably warm weather but Christmas is just a week away.  Like my colleague JT mentioned in her latest post, I’ve also found it a little challenging to get into the holiday spirit this year.  I recently came across an article in Boston Magazine, “Eight Vintage Photos Show […]

Lessons From the Field: a Conversation With Networking Expert Van Allen

(This post originally appeared at Recruiter.com) When you are a networker, you meet a lot of other networkers. If you meet enough networkers, you tend to meet some that do it well — and these people can definitely teach you a thing or two. If you’re lucky, some of those connections will turn out to be […]

Today’s Technology is Awesome… Really!

In 1945, shortly after the end of World War II, America’s Atomic Age turned science fiction into science fact, spurring innovation and imagination at a grand scale. It was the era of Telstar and tailfins, when anything seemed possible—including flying cars. But rather than fill the skies, flying cars became a symbol of technology’s unfulfilled […]

The 20-Year-Old CEO

I recently attended a networking event at Boston University that brought together young adults from the school’s Summer Startup Accelerator program and their entrepreneurship group, BUzz Lab. Before I knew it, I was hearing stories left and right of the new inventions and companies these individuals had not only envisioned, but had already began building. […]

The Power of People

As a strong supporter and frequent user of Uber, earlier this week I decided to give their new feature uberPOOL a try. Within four minutes of clicking the request button, a jolly and smiling man in a Chevrolet Equinox arrived. While juggling my purse and grocery bags, I plopped in the front, having already seen […]

Family Trip across the Pond

After a five-day, whirlwind journey, I recently came home (begrudgingly) from a lovely trip across the pond with my family. I’ve been to England before to visit my grandfather’s family in Birmingham, but this trip trumped all previous visits—including the one taken on the occasion of my 18th birthday (I won’t be blogging any of […]

Why Disney Pushed me Over the Edge

With last Sunday being gloomy, cold and wet, the day presented itself as a perfect excuse to hit the movie theater. After checking out three or four trailers, my boyfriend and I settled on Disney’s “Tomorrowland” as it looked to be action-packed and futuristic.

Wanderlust in the Land of Luck

I recently returned to reality from an eight day trip spent traipsing around Ireland with a close friend and several newly-made ones. In that short period I visited Dublin, Belfast, Derry, Galway, Cork, Kilkenny and many sites (and sights) in between. As the story goes for most when traveling, once you get a taste you […]

Smartphones make it easy to connect with family and friends from across town or across the globe. With your trusty smartphone you can […]
