In Rapture ((Week of Jan 25))

  • Oh boy, this read on the speculation regarding how women age is an important one. Reading some of the actual things written about Carrier Fisher is simply astonishing. Interesting, how some men make things like a woman's attractiveness as she ages their business. This piece also lightly touches a very real issue of how many women are held back by society's standard of thin beauty. That item about how Weight Watchers only works because there are repeat customers says a lot. 
  • Loving this minimal, industrial, and colorful look at the textile industry.

  • Well this just put what little embroidery game I have to shame

Staycation

I started the year off with a little staycation as I transitioned to my brand new job at Planned Parenthood. The weather was cold, foggy, snowy and then frozen, which made it perfect for a staycation. I cleaned up my house, did laundry, took down Christmas stuff, hung out a ton with Bebop, read and drank coffee, enjoyed some leisurely lunches. All of it was just wonderful. I could really get used to this not working thing (just kidding I was so going nuts, I couldn't wait to get back to work).

Snow Day Hanscom Dog Park

Because when you find yourself with a day off, you should take your dog who has been soooooo bored because of the cold to the dog park.

In Rapture ((Week of Jan 18))

  • My name's in the paper today and I didn't even get arrested!
  • Digging this article on 2016 style resolutions. 
  • Ugh, articles like this make me worry so much for today's mothers and women in general. 
  • I made a goal to read 25 books this year and boy am I glad Esquire corrected their misogyny by releasing this list of 80 books we all should read.

  • This makes me want to go and get pierced.

    Golden Morning Light

    I know I may sound insane, but I actually secretly love when the weather turns sub-zero. There's a starkness and contrast unlike any other time of year. The air is paralytic. Allowing the sun to meet its dawn breaks its bones. It's what I enjoy about living in the midwest. There's a true honestly in the brutality of winter. It fills your lungs and burns your face and dries your skin. To survive it is like surviving a fight with a significant other. You come out the other end with a fresh consciousness and appreciation for what you have.

    Flagship Commons

    When I had some time off last week, I met a few friends at the newly opened Flagship Commons and let me tell you all, this shit is legit.

    PREACH

    M's

    I think at one point or another, we’ve all made M’s Pub our home, even if just for an hour. M’s was accustomed to being host to those celebrating birthdays, family, successes or nothing at all. And such a good host it was. 

    My heart goes out to all of the businesses and people affected by this fire. Nebraska winters are brutal, but what fresh consciousness it brings once it’s over. We will rebuild, we will rise, we will share our memories knowing that there are more to be made.

    DT WW ((Downtown Winter Wonderland))

    As kind of an annual thing, I enjoy coming down to the Gene Leahy mall when they have all of those lovely lights up. It truly captures the magic of Omaha around this time of year.
