This virus, man. It’s really taking its toll on everyone. I don’t have any words of wisdom about dealing with it. But if you’re looking for ideas of how to spend your time indoors, check out my social distancing survival packs.

  • I’ve struggled to take time off in the past but I realized last year that vacations make me a better person –now I’ve found the research to support it. Time to book a vacation, y’all! (For after COVID-19 has run its course, so maybe 2021?)

What I Read: January/February 2020

Ghost Wall by Sarah Moss

Rating: 5/5

A weird and wonderful novella about a teenager forced to go on an archaeological experience with her bus driver father, her timid mother, an aging professor and a group of impressionable college students.

Scratched that The Secret History itch in a way nothing else has been able to!

Body Love Every Day by Kelly Leveque

Rating: 4/5

As you read this I am furiously checking my bags before I leave for Morocco. I am slightly terrified but mostly thrilled to have the opportunity to travel to a country I’ve wanted to visit for so long.

  • Packing books for a trip. Topical but since I subscribe to the Rory Gilmore method of carrying books… for reference, Rory carries 1 bus book biography, 1 bus book novel, 1 lunch book – preferably essays, 1 book of short stories.

  • Gender and sexuality are hard y’all. I really enjoyed this profile of Lachlan Watson who plays Theo on Sabrina.Their journey to defining their identity, and the way they fought to have different identities shown on screen should be required reading.
  • I read this profile of how Gilmore Girls & Parenthood star Lauren Graham spends her time. Moral? If you want to be creative, make time to see/do/feel creative things.
  • Liberal arts has a branding problem. Or at least it does according to potential students. As a Kenyon grad, I think about the value of my education every day but I’m not sure that articulating the ethos of it would work with my students.
