I have not felt so much like “wow, I really needed that time off” since university. I am still tired, but I feel refreshed. Rejuvenated feels too strong, but refreshed feels okay. I actually feel like I can now tackle some of the things on my long “want to do” list, which is exciting! So this weekend I think I am going to start moving this blog over to wordpress.org (and correcting the humiliating spelling mistake in my url that I only noticed two weeks ago), something that has been on the want to do list for a couple months.
How to not get overwhelmed by the news. The past three weeks I’ve shared news about Ukraine here, so this felt important to share first.

I think I’ve been in general burnt out, but normally by this point in the year I would be back on the dating apps, but I haven’t and this article expressed why well. But if you’re feeling up to it, this writer tested out 5 different apps.

The list of artists whose albums I will listen to immediately is short: Taylor Swift, Adele, Kacey Musgraves, Harry Styles, and Maren Morris. Her latest album, Humble Quest, came out yesterday, and I haven’t listened to it enough to have full thoughts, but it is achingly beautiful.
Have a restful weekend,
