What Are You Reading? 📚

I’m about 100 pages into Hanya Yanagihara’s, A Little Life. Not a light read at all but engrossing and beautifully written. I can tell it is going to be complex and an emotional journey, more to come. The beauty of reading a paperback is that there are no other distractions that can ping, buzz or light up while I’m reading and for that, I will always carry a paperback - even if it’s nearly 750 pages.

What Are You Watching? 🎥

I can be a power streamer, I absolutely love watching tv. Took me a minute to fully embrace it but yes, it’s such a great way to check out after a long day. I’m late to the Abbot Elementary game and only in season 1 but it is so far it’s such  a fun watch. Quinta Brunson is a genius. Her blind optimism is hilarious and endearing at the same time.

What Are You Listening to? 🎧

When I’m working on tasks that require focused attention I love listening to classical music. There’s so much energy in each composition and yet it’s not distracting. I stumbled upon Pop Goes Classical which is the best of both worlds. It’s a great listen for inspiring ambient music! Esp if you were a Brigerton fan.

What’s one thing we should know about you that isn’t on your LinkedIn? 🤔

For someone who hates wearing socks, my sock game is strong. It all started at the NY Botanical Garden. Normally I don’t buy gift shop tchotchke but Yayoi Kusama’s exhibit was so good, I memorialized it with a pair of red polka dotted Kusama socks. Now I have close to 40 pairs but probably 15 that are mood changing.

Any last thoughts? 🧠
