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.

  • I first came across the word anthropocene in a poetry class. This essay is just the right kind of nerdery about the word and its interplay with climate change.

  • 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.

  • First up in articles this week is a former FBI negotiator’s tips for travel. I’m headed to Morocco so, so I’ll take all the tips and tricks I can get!
  • I’ve been trying to organize my schedule using timeboxing this week after reading this article about it in the Harvard Business review. Have you tried time boxing?

  • I’ve been relatively obsessed with my childhood friend Ashley Trabue’s work. She shares her amazing art and her words of wisdom on Instagram. Give her a follow!
  • The rapid flow of information has made us all distractible. I’m trying to combat it with these 4 simple exercises. Care to join me?
  • I’ve been obsessed with Kit Kemp’s work for various hotels. So much design inspiration!
  • This week I’ve been listening to my February playlist, but mostly this song on repeat.
