Hey collectors out there!  Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. “What do you actually DO with all that stuff?!  If you’re not actively using it, then sell it, donate it, or throw it away!” What about this one? “You said a few boxes of books.  Ten is not “a few.”  No, I don’t care that it used to be twenty boxes.” Or this classic. “The only thing you’re collecting is dust!” Collections: the bane of our loved ones’ collective existence.  Whether in preparation for a move or just taking up space in your mom’s linen closet, collections become burdens for everyone.  Yet, every time we sayRead More →

pleasures

Guilty pleasures! We had a great time at this hangout. First, we discuss what makes something a guilty pleasure. We decided it’s often something you don’t talk much about, you generally don’t tell your friends or your family about it. Sometimes it might make you feel a little embarrassed that you enjoy it so much. Or it might be a show or movie that you watch and watch over and over again. Isabela previously discussed how guilty pleasures are often code for feminine. Romances are often described as guilty pleasures. One of the ideas we mention is they are often more light-hearted or popcorn entertainment.Read More →

Have you ever been a party where you just felt instantly at home and bummed when it ended?  Chances are, it was set up by someone who made sure some basic essentials were taken care of for you.  If you are new to being a host, have no fear.  You too can prevent a mid-party facepalm.  Whether it is a small night of board games, a barbecue, or a jivin’ dance party, there are a few easy things you can prepare to make your friends feel comfortable and happy all night long.

I do a lot of socializing on social media – it became pretty important to me once I started working mostly from home. But I’ve had a hard time with many of my usual platforms because of different trends I’m seeing, not the least of which is too much re-sharing of posts. Sometimes I feel like everything is on repeat on social media. That’s usually when I boot up Instagram. I’ve worked hard at limiting the accounts I follow on Instagram. For me, it’s a smaller network and one I’ve designed to help me feel inspired. So, I thought I would share five accounts thatRead More →

Recently, I was listening to the Nerdette podcast and came across an episode where the hosts interviewed Peter Sagal. I actually enjoyed the interview as a whole, but something Mr. Sagal casually said in the beginning irked me and, weeks later, still sticks in my craw. It came at the end of an explanation of how “nerds” these days have it so much easier than he did as a boy: “Guys, you’re not nerds; you’re fans, you’re enthusiasts.” What? Hold on a second. I have a huge problem with people denying others the right to claim the labels they wish to, be it nerd orRead More →
