This reminded me of how when I was little my mom told me I had to eat my sandwich crusts "because that is where the bread nutrients are." It took be embarrassing number of years to realize how nonsensical that was.
So what is the overall take, must read? Or a fun quick read?
I was in New Paltz while driving to Montreal and went in a chocolate shop, but it wasn't this one and now I have much regret! I really loved New Paltz in general. Seemed exactly like a place that would have a chocolate shop like this.
I have not read this book, but reading these small excerpts make me want to read it desperately. I love when simple things just zap you. Things that seem obvious, but somehow haven't occurred to anyone to note or write down in such a direct way.
@tofuswalkman I thought the Sopranos was a snore and could not get through it. I think watching it in my TV mind of 2014, I have already seen Tony's character, so instead of ground breaking it feels tired.
Only sad that this debut'ed after I finishing the idiotic marketing course I took last semester. Just imaging the presentation my group could have done for this.
@tofuswalkman oh yeah, I probably would I said something I would regret if someone had said that to me, but I appreciated that Haley was honest.
#1! So adorable, I love it.
Can I share new tunes here? I friend just recommended Hundred Waters - The Moon Rang Like a Bell to me as an excellent winter album and it is quite good, especially if you want something moody to swim in.
So many thoughts after reading this that I am having trouble putting into words. I hope Meredith finds some small comfort in her wonderful written voice, and thank her for sharing this.
"The first time in my life that people have paid attention to what I have to say and it's threatening to take my voice away for good."
That is going to stick with me for quite a while.
Just last week I fell into a sad cycle. Once it sets in I usually put on something moody, often Waxahatchee, and sit, alone, trying to adsorb even more saddness. It ended on Friday when I failed as cheering myself up with my favorite happy hour, as we got turned away since it was jammed packed and we walked back home in the freezing wind. I laid on the sofa and just sobbed. And then it slowly sheds off. I eat dinner, and drink a cocktail my boyfriend made. Watch You've Got Mail on Netflix. When sadness comes in appropriate cycles I find in restorative. It it such a great feeling when you can tell it has slipped off your shoulders.
