My favorite finds from around the web:
• An introvert’s guide to having people over. “I’m an introvert who enjoys having people over. But that doesn’t mean I don’t get nervous, tired or worried every time people come through my door. It just means I invite them over anyway.”
• Mr. Darcy is going on tour (or at least his shirt is). “We will be giving [the museum] some Windex, to be used in what we anticipate will be a daily wiping-down of lipstick marks.”
• On going gray in my thirties. “I don’t want to speed up the aging process, but I also don’t want to shy away from it like it’s something to be embarrassed about. It is what it is. So I have gray hair.”
• The “quitter’s mindset” could be the secret to success.” “In high school, you’re successful because you take on and do so much. But that’s not what makes you a success — or even an interesting person — in adult life.”
A new podcast:
In the latest episode of The Simple Show, Tsh Oxenreider and I discuss how we work, what we don’t do, and what our daily rhythms look like. This was so much fun. Listen to the episode here.
(You can catch up on the latest episodes of my podcast What Should I Read Next? here, and follow the show on instagram here. It’s a book nerd’s delight over there.)
