Hello! I'm Melissa. Welcome - I'm glad you've come across my corner of the Internet. I'm a Tufts University alum. I love Moleskine notebooks and good coffee - I was an English and Political Science major in college, and some habits stuck with me. I dabble in web design (both hand coding websites as well as editing and maintaining Wordpress themes). This website is a work in progress: I welcome feedback. If you find any errors, please let me know.

I'm a recent transplant to California - I moved here from Boston, MA at the end of August 2015. I'm eager to dive into all this state has to offer. In Boston, I worked as a legal assistant for two and a half years at a boutique law firm specializing in commercial real estate and business transactions. Currently, I'm working as an Event Coordinator. Years ago, a friend of mine became a friend by telling me I seemed like I had interesting thoughts, and I've made it a goal to live up to that assumption. I hope to learn constantly, and one of the ways I do that is by traveling and exploring the world around me, whether down the street, across the country, or through a novel. Below you'll find links to lists of some of my favorite books and coffeeshops from across the country. I hope to expand upon those recommendations in the coming months to include California-based things as well. (Have suggestions? Email me at hi@melissaweigand.com.)
