Honeymoon Days 4-5: Mykonos

Our second day in Mykonos was a beautiful, sunny day. After a small breakfast we laid out by the pool and actually got some sun. Afterwards we decided to take the hotel shuttle into town. Mykonos is a very windy island, and since the main town sits right along the harbor, the small winding streets are subject to […]

Honeymoon Day 3: Mykonos

We got up bright and early on Day 3 to catch a flight to Mykonos (our travel agency recommended air travel since ferries from Athens to Mykonos aren’t very reliable). After a delicious breakfast, we headed to the airport to find…a tiny, dinky plane. We joked that if the plane crashes, at least we’ll die happy on our honeymoon. […]

Honeymoon Day 2: Athens

What’s a visit to Greece without a tour of some of the world’s oldest treasures? Luckily, one of J’s friends from college is currently working as an archeologist (!) in Athens, so she took a day off to show us around the historic sites. We were able to squeeze in the Acropolis, Agora, and Kerameikos. (I was a […]

Apr 15, 2008  •  In Depression, Personal


Back in college I went through a dark period of constant despair, suicidal thoughts, and even self-mutilation. A good friend urged me to seek treatment, and I reluctantly did. I was diagnosed with major depression, took a medical leave of absence from school, and was treated with psychotherapy and medications for the next few years. So when […]

Hump Day Hook-Ups
