Who’s writing this?

Hi, I’m Rachel!

This blog is an outlet for my love of urban studies — but in particular housing, hotels, and other permanent and semi-permanent shelters.

When I was in university, I took on a second concentration in urban planning. As a creative writing major and a tired and broke working student, I was worried about my future job prospects. Ironically, I now make my living as a writer and pursue urban studies as a side passion.
