Hi, how was your week?
I kind of noticed this last year, but I think I am either developing a seasonal allergy, or there is some different kind of pollen up here that I have seasonal allergies to. However, I don’t know if that’s accurate, because it is still a tundra here and nothing has bloomed yet. So, I don’t know. But I am sneezy and sniffly, if it wasn’t impossible to get a COVID test if you aren’t in a specific group of higher risk peoples I would get a test. However, in the meantime, I’m going to try some allergy meds and hope for the best.
The story of an American journalist who has spent the past 40 years working in Russia and how and why they chose to leave. This was such a good, interesting, and important read.
We all now know about the gender pay gap, but there are a few cities in the USA where women under 30 are reaching pay parity.
More feminist news I can get behind: RBG and Sandra Day O’Connor have been approved to have statues among their peers on the grounds of Congress.
In podcast news, Katy Perry will be playing Elizabeth Taylor in a podcast approved by her estate. Colour me intrigued.
As we watch the news about Ukraine, don’t forget what it was and what they are fighting for, exhibit A: Odessa.
I love days in the life, vlogs on TikTok or YouTube, it might be voyeuristic, but I love seeing what other people’s lives are like.
Is using celebrities for health and fitness advice generally harmful, probably, they have time, money, and resources we can never even imagine, however, I will do whatever Blake Lively tells me to.
I’m glad I’m not the only one who had this thought, why do people dress better for the after parties, than the event??
When I was in 11th grade I took film photography as an elective, and it took me longer than the rest of my classmates to get the hang of portraiture. So one day the teacher took me and set me up in the corner with three photography books, Slim Aarons, Annie Leibowitz, and Patrick Demarchelier, and something clicked in my brain looking at these books. And I’ve never forgotten how those images made me feel, rest in peace Patrick.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend,
