In these times

Even in “normal times,” it’s easy for me to count failures. In the age of quarantine, it’s exponentially easier. As someone who historically could read more than a book a week, I’m struggling to get through one a month. I’m eating fewer veggies and working out differently, and I’m feeling hyper-critical of my body. I […]

The New Normal

Accidentally took a five-month hiatus there. In my defense, I moved to a new city (in a new state) and…got a DOG! So I’ve been busy adjusting (doing absolutely nothing but look at my dog while she sleeps and take pictures of her). And then, of course, we slipped quickly into an international crisis.

Reading List: August 2019

  This past month has been an absolute whirlwind. It’s been fun and exhausting all at once, and despite being busy, I’ve found plenty of time to get some reading done, including tackling the absolute behemoth that is 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami. Although it feels like summer is coming to a close, there’s still plenty […]

Books to Read this July

The beginning of June feels like it was so recent, but then I recall all the books I read in June and feel astounded by how quickly time passed. Hopefully you’re enjoying the long weekend for the 4th of July. My ideal Fourth is spent with a crisp glass of rosé (or even better, a […]
