easy like (farmer’s market)

It’s cherry season. 

Holy cow, my allergies are terrible this weekend. Doesn’t matter what I do, from allergy pills to Flonase, I’m sniffling like crazy. Yes, I have also been listening to Taylor Swift all week on Spotify. Sue me. We all cope with allergies somehow. Mine is air conditioning and T-Swift.

easy like monday? (night?)

My friend Zach made an album, and it’s a great piece of writing/music/art. “Debt Sounds” deals with dark themes and is crazy relatable for a recent grad like myself, as well as someone who’s battled anxiety for most of her life. Plus, Zach’s an amazing lyricist. Give it a listen here on Bandcamp and buy it on iTunes.

easy like (23)

(I feel like your birthday should hold all of your favorite things, and this is mine: sunrise on a rooftop in Rome. That’s the Vatican in the distance.) I wrote a whole other post for this day, but upon re-reading it, it just didn’t fit. #Typical.

(team Blurry Photo / No Makeup Weekends who’s with me?)

Wow, friends, it’s been a week right? My rent is going up (got that letter this week, yikes), this whole Russia thing is p crazy, and now D.C. is officially the steamy, swampy, humid melting pot of sweat that it will be for the rest of the summer. Oh, sweet, sweet spring breezes, how I’ll miss you. I got to work on Friday and had to put my hair up to cool down. Long hair is weird but ponytails are awesome. These are my takeaways.

What were you reading this week?

I am a Gemini, hear me roar. 

I’ve always been interested in astrology, and I recently figured out my birth chart (ik, I’m weird), and this Man Repeller article is a super awesome primer for astrology newbies! (Also, no, I won’t be blaming Mercury retrograde any time soon, but it’s cool to see what “you’re like” based on things totally out of your control!). Some of my chart is accurate and some of it isn’t – it’s fun to explore, though! (<— SUCH a Gemini, amirite)

I’m slowly but surely making close friends in D.C. (even if my closest homies seem to be moving further and further west), but this guide to making friends in a new city is fire.

Why do we insist on socializing at night (sincerely, the girl who has STILL not mastered the art of adult bedtime)?

Lol Coach has a NASA-themed space collection so goodbye hard-earned money.

A letter to a working mom, from her daughter. 

I am crying (in laughter) at this New Yorker essay.

It’s a $44 t-shirt but, like, this is very much on-brand for me. 

Also, causal reminder to pay for your freakin’ news. I’ve got a lot of skin in the game because **J-school alumnae** so subscribe to the NYT here and WaPo here (despite their melodramatic new slogan). Paying for a subscription directly affects funding for business travel, healthcare coverage, salaries – all stuff we want our news orgs to give to their employees right? Right.

Okay. I have to do a million things and go eat some eggs. Talk at you again soon! Wear sunscreen!

easy like derby

Happy Kentucky Derby weekend! I really don’t get into horse racing except for this weekend – my family has a group text, winner takes all, and it’s a lovely way to connect with family across the country for a day or two, even if we are all talking trash. I’m seeing a friend I haven’t seen in aaaaages this morning for coffee, and I hope to finally deep clean my apartment post-flu. (Please, please get your flu shot, and don’t be like me. I was down for the count for around a week!) What’s on your weekend to-do list?

easy like sunday

I spent the afternoon ambling with my momma through U & 14th St, showing her that Georgetown isn’t the only place she’d love here. Culmination of the afternoon was rifling through Miss Pixie’s. God, I love that place.

easy like easter

Hey friends! This is late because it’s Easter and I spent the morning with lil’ munchkins snatchin’ eggs at the Navy Yard. I’m super lucky to have family in the area who invited me into their home for the morning. Now I’m back in Foggy Bottom looking for apartments and fighting off the Sunday scaries.
