easy like (rain)

Good morning, good morning! It is very rainy here in the nation’s capitol, and we’re squeezing up every ounce of fall-ness the weekend has to offer. Last night I got to see a college friend who was back in town for one night only, and the night before that I watched the USA Men’s National Soccer Team beat Panama; if you’re keeping score at home, yes, I do think the Women’s National Team is way more badass than the men’s team – these are the facts, people.

I got a surprise day off on Monday, so I’m going to relish it for all it’s worth. Maybe I’ll bake some cookies, maybe I’ll bake some bread – speaking of bread, I’ve also created my very own little sourdough starter. I’ll let you know in a week if I can make it work!

Here’s what I’m reading this weekend:

What if platforms like Facebook are too big to regulate?

From your cheerful neighborhood girl (me): A first-person account of the recent Yosemite rockfall.

What’s up with the essential oil fad? Is it just a fad? I’m so perplexed by it, guys.

Sorry for all the seriousness today, but: 52 environmental rules on the way out under Trump.

I’m saving for a Casper mattress, which I’ve heard great things about.

Really psyched to dig into this new Netflix doc Ice Guardians about hockey “enforcers” – players who start the fights on the ice, often as a result of an obscure “code,” as a girl raised on hockey, this will be really interesting to parse out.

Yo, if nobody invites me to their cookbook club, I may just start my own.

Here’s a guide to exactly where the leaves are going to change (I don’t usually believe in guides like this – I can just feel it in my veins).

Really loving the winding career of The Cut’s Stella Bugbee.

My acne has only gotten worse as I’ve gotten older (read more about it here) but this post made me feel much less alone.

Man Repeller as always droppin’ some serious knowledge: When Did Work Stress Become Sexy? 

I’m off to enjoy this rainy Sunday and hopefully the rainy Monday to follow. It’ll be a hectic week, and I’m not too sure about my 5-year plan this weekend, but I believe if you set goals, you’ll figure out a way to achieve them – at least, that’s what I keep telling myself.

    Thanks for being real and sharing that article about adult acne. Cue my laughter at, “You get FIVE MINUTES” to fixating on whatever deicides to pop up. I am fascinated by the concept of a cookbook club! Enjoy today and your day off tomorrow!

      Thanks girl! I’m glad it rang true for you! (IK, I’m dying to get a cookbook club together here in DC). Thanks for the well wishes, and I hope you’re well too!
