OK… How are you? No but really… HOW ARE YOU? This week was just… a lot… for all of us and I know I felt really overwhelmed and on edge and just cranky and awful. I was not sleeping very well and had to really slow down with work stuff and be calm. So if you are feeling those things, please know that you aren’t alone. I loved this piece in Vogue so so much and wanted to echo it: please take care of yourself, get enough rest, limit your media intake, all those things. I’m talking to myself here, too! (And for more on that, I also really loved these seven free ways to practice self-care from Essence.)
I’m planning to be mostly off my phone this weekend and the only TV I will be watching will be Netflix! I started watching The Queen’s Gambit last night and am really enjoying it so far… have you watched it???
