meanwhile, elsewhere

It’s Friday’s online finds: Cozy up and dig in

  • Very addicted to the NYT’s The Hunt – Tag along on a search for a New York City home!
  • ‘Success Addicts’ Choose Being Special Over Being Happy – The pursuit of achievement distracts from the deeply ordinary activities and relationships that make life meaningful. (The Atlantic)
  • A Reminder That Your Tween Really Needs Extra Help Right Now: Eight- to 12-year-olds are in a key developmental stage and may be especially prone to anxiety and depression during the pandemic. (HuffPost)
  • The other side of cancel culture: The Jessica/Sasha story continues (National Post via Erin)
  • Draw Ketchup
  • YES! Instead of “how’s it going?” ” what are you doing this weekend?” let ask “got any good gossip!?” – The Year in Gossip – The brand of simplistic and overzealous moralism that exists online has long been tedious, but the pandemic has made it even more so. (Hazlitt via This American Life)
  • I can be present in ways that I probably couldn’t if I were looking after another human. I love kids and cherish my friends’ kids and my many nieces, but I don’t feel passionate enough about my love of kids to have one myself. I hope that we can normalize that feeling for women! – 7 Women on Deciding Not to Have Kids (A Cup Of Jo)
  • And back when David was five, I wrote about the only child club and I am still a proud member.
  • THIS IS A CRAZY UPDATE! Dakota Johnson does not love limes! If you too are a fan of Architectural Digest house tours, this will come as a surprise. (Glamour)
  • Memory discrepancies happen all the time, but we have a hard time accepting that our memories are rarely accurate. Because we’ve been conditioned to think of our memories like video recordings or data stored in the cloud, we assert that our rememberings are the correct ones. Anyone who remembers the situation differently must be wrong. – Like I remember being a background dancer at the end of this Sloan video but recently, my friends have told me this did not happen (fs)
  • Andrea Zittel: These things I know for sure (baileye)
  • Made it, loved it (Smitten Kitchen)
  • Am I having fun? I wonder. Is this what fun is? I am no longer sure. (Vox)

Until we meet again, xo
