Some pics of Boston’s South End

May 12, 2011

I took these pictures while I was walking through the South End on Monday:

Fountain on Union Park Street

South End Buttery-- I will try this place soon!

Photos taken at dusk in Melrose, Massachusetts

March 21, 2011

My fiance and I returned from our trip to Charleston, SC last night. I will surely be blogging about our amazing getaway in the near future. In the meantime, here are two pictures I took the night before we left for South Carolina. I captured the shots from Melrose’s Main Street.

Doesn’t the sky look like it’s out of a Renoir painting?

4th Somerville Jingle Bell Run brings some cheer to my Sunday morning

December 19, 2010

I was sitting in my bedroom when I started hearing lots of stomping and bells ringing. I opened my blinds and saw hordes of red- and green-clad runners headed down Cedar Street. Here are some photos I took through my window screen (yeah, I’m like that old lady who hangs out by her window waiting for something to happen):

Here’s an approximately two-minute video I made:

Christmas decorations are up!

A nice day in Boston

November 20, 2010

I just got a new camera so I thought I’d post some of its first pictures. Today I went to Beacon Hill to have breakfast at Cafe Vanille.

My boyfriend spotted the bakery’s croissants a few weeks ago and said they looked delicious. So he brought me along to try them. The cafe was so crowded we had to eat outside. I got a regular croissant and coffee and he got a chocolate croissant and iced latte:

Everything was amazing. The croissants were crispy on the outside and soft and moist on the inside. Usually I have to dunk my croissants in coffee for them to taste delicious but with these there was no need for that. When we were done we gave our crumbs to all the birds eying our breakfast. This is them having a feast:

Here are a few other pics I took today:

Outside The Shops at the Prudential Center

For lunch I ordered a McGreevy’s Cuban at McGreevy’s pub on Boylston Street. My roasted pork, ham, turkey, Swiss cheese, pickles, and chipotle mayonnaise were supposed to come in a baguette but they did not:

That was disappointing. When a girl wants a baguette she wants a baguette!

Back up your data

July 9, 2010

People always tell you to back up your computer data, but until you lose it you might not listen to them.

At least, that was my case.

I had extensive research and a PowerPoint presentation on my laptop, a speech for a friend’s wedding, and lots and lots of pictures. And of course more stuff, too.

But I accidentally dropped my computer and lost everything. My hard drive was ruined. There was no way to get the files without paying $500-plus (at least so I was told).

I had to do my research and presentation all over again. I still have to rewrite the speech. I will have to recover my photos from Facebook (thank God I post most of my pictures).

And of course I will have to get a new computer, or at least replace my old computer with a new hard drive. I’m not really sure what this latter option entails, and should take some time to research it. I actually have a computer-savvy friend who was willing to give me advice, so I think I will ask him about this.

Anyway, this week I’m thankful to my bf who is letting me use his laptop. But I’m frustrated with myself that a) I dropped my computer, and b) I hadn’t backed up my hard drive. Let this be a lesson to you computer owners out there!

Copley Square in Boston is a fun place to people watch

June 22, 2010

You sit in front of the Boston Public Library…

…and then you watch the people as they pass. Call me a stalker, but here are some people I captured on film (or should I say digital memory card):
