Long Read. The crushing reality of Zoom school is hitting home.

Today, I launched something new over on my Instagram Stories.  It’s called “Break Things,” and if you love The Edition, you will not want to miss it.

Break Things is a collection of items to give you a little break in the middle of your afternoon.  Articles about work, relationships, culture and mental health mix with memes, music, art, and whatever else lifts me up that day.  It’s designed to let you take a breath and reset every weekday at 2:00PM.

The best way to experience Break Things is via my Instagram Stories.  But if you’re not on Instagram, subscribe to the Break Things Newsletter on Substack.

Hope to see you there!

    I see a lot of my friends’ relationships in that divorce article. My husband and I often tell people that we are trying to live the divorced lifestyle before we get divorced (e.g., actually splitting the housework/childcare, regularly going out on our own during the week, saying that we need a night off from the grind even if we are home). People give us the side eye and laugh uncomfortably, but we are serious!

    1) I love the idea of Break Things! I’ve been trying to come up with them on my own but there are limits to my own imagination at this point.

    2) Listen to “Bastards” by Kesha if you haven’t already. It has your energy right now. Yes, that Kesha of 2010-ish gargage-chic fame. It’s an awesome acoustic song from her 2016 album Rainbow (also had “Praying” on it–the whole album is great imo).

It’s happened to all of us: You’re walking into a meeting and you catch a whiff of something. A slight odor. A bad smell. And you wonder, “Is that me?” You want to surreptitiously check that that unsavory aroma isn’t you, but you can’t do that here. So you just keep your arms at your […]

WFH Outfit: Denim and Black

Does anyone really know how to dress for a rainy February? It’s not winter. It’s not spring. Sweaters seem heavy. Just a shirt feels like you’ll be cold. It’s a puzzle.
