Friday Faves

Friends, it’s been a minute. I stopped doing the Friday Five when I somehow gathered almost five jobs and now I find myself with only two (sometimes three). Perhaps in my free time, I’ll be able to read more of the internet and share it with you. I’m not going to promise that this will be a weekly occurrence, but should I find some tweets that I like, I’ll add them in here too. I might even try to write on this thing every so often. They say the blog is dead; I say we can make them cool again.

Really, I’m just a collector. The blog is a place to collect things—fun stories, thoughts, links, and tweets.

Here are just a few of my favorite things from the past several months:

A book for every age. Have you read the one for your current age?

Speaking of books, Little Women is one of my favorites. I loved the 1994 movie and this oral history of it did not disappoint.

Listen. to this podcast. Dolly Parton’s America explores a theme I’ve been noticing myself in the last couple of years. And one of the guys who does RadioLab, arguably the best produced podcast, is behind this one, so it’s a great listen on multiple levels.

I somehow found this poem, “The Opposite Game,” and I recommend it.

I’ve recently become interested in this Instagram feed. Who wants to go in with me to just buy a fixer-upper somewhere in Maine?

This music video is the happiness your Friday needs.

home

There are many kinds of home, different places we belong, that belong to us. I lived in Oxford for only three months, but it is one of my homes. I belong there. Oxford belongs to who I was and am. It may seem overly romantic to refer to it in that way, but I think we...

Tweets of the Month Club | June + July 2018

Listen. I was in Dallas a lot in June and July. I know they have internet there, too, but the point is that I was busy. So I missed a lot of Twitter. Through the magic of catch-up lists and Twitter showing me everything anyone I follow has ever read, I was able to...

when water stops flowing in

when water stops flowing in

  Sometimes I get carried away with thinking I’m independent. I own my own house; I have a grown-up job; I go on solo vacations; I see movies alone. Then the 67-year-old pipes in my own house spring a leak. And water stops flowing in. And everything needs to be...
