Fit & Healthy During the Pandemic

It’s easy to feel adrift right now with the loss of the familiar structures of work, errands, social engagements, and perhaps, school-related events. It’s unsettling to find ourselves without the predictable ways we used to measure our days. Without the usual deadlines to force us to focus, it may feel harder to get things done, […]

The Journey

The Cake is a Lie.

You’d totally get the title of this post if you ever played Portal (which you definitely should if you haven’t because it’s amazing). For those of you who don’t quite get what I’m saying, “The Cake is a Lie” basically means “You are chasing after an empty, unattainable goal.” Now not to be a Debbie […]
