Reading

First, I finally read Live Alone and Like It. This book showed up at my desk like two years ago and I was intrigued but I never got around to reading it. I finally made time for it this weekend — it’s a super quick read — and oh my gosh, it’s so funny and delightful! It was written in 1936 but so much of the advice is completely relevant (and just spot-on). This article gives some good historic context.

Watching/listening

Slate’s Slow Burn podcast is probably the best thing I consumed this week. (FYI, the second episode is the weakest one, but stay the course!) I also watched Drag Race for the first time ever (started with the current season) and the documentary Icarus which is *eyes emoji*.

Loving

Best life

I took this fabric shaver ($12) to my sweaters and am quite pleased with the results! Also it’s so much more fun than shaving my body???

The week ahead…

Make it stop.
