On What's Happening With My Nails?

I've been getting gel manicures for two months now and my nails are long as fuqqqqqqq without tips and I LOVE IT SO MUCH. I love the way they click clack against the keys of my work computer. I work in a male dominated field and the fact that even on my casual dress down days i have an obvious and bright marker of feminine grooming GIVES ME LIFE.

On How Do You Get Shit Done?


It's kind of corporate speak-y, but you will become insanely more productive. I don't necessarily get more accomplished, I just do so quicker so I have more time to do absolutely nothing and not feel so guilty about it. I watch so much netflix now! Without those horrible pangs of guilt!

At least implement the 2 minute rule, which kind of sounds like Jolie's JFDI mantra. If you can do it in under 2 minutes, just do it now! That way you don't have to add it to the to do list.

On Self-Care, in Theory and Practice

Sara, I must recommend two things to you:

1. Melatonin. I am also very afraid of sleeping pills but took melatonin for the first time two nights ago and it was magic. 3 mg was all it took. Took it with a glass of sleepy time tea, in bed with the radio on, and it was great. V peaceful. I've been an insomniac since I was a kid and the nighttime ritual is VERY important.

2. GTD - Getting Things Done. It's a very corporate america type thing in its jargon and the discourse surrounding it, but it's helped me find a lot of peace. Now when I get those imposter syndrome fueled moments of self doubt I can look back at my "completed" tasks in GTD (I used doit.im, omnifocus is good app for macs) and see that NO! I am productive! I did good work today! It also helps because you realize you don't NEED to put every moment of your life to a certain class of tasks (read: work) and that putting aside an hour to yourself every day for routine (cooking/cleaning/self care) and another hour for self improvement (reading a good book/learning a new task) does not make a huge dent in the main focus (work) at all.

As a neurotic and an insomniac I URGE you to look into those things. They have been very helpful for me! Especially GTD!

On Dress Your Family In Your Lover's Shoes

@Plexia In the US welfare benefits are asset based, meaning it is not your income that determines your entitlement, but all of your possessions in total. Some people have even been forced to sell their cars to qualify for it. In every state in the US having a trust, or any savings at all that you declare, would disqualify you from welfare.

On Overheard at a Women-Only Charity Event

“You guys are all so beautiful. Like, there’s not enough time to hug you all and grab all your butts.”

I have said this exact thing I want to go to this ladies only charity event and touch some butts in the spirit of friendship.
