Musings

Coming Soon...

So, in case you live under a rock or don't follow my instagram (basically the same thing?), the last few days have been a whirlwind of activity up and down the East Coast and the South. I took over 500 photographs and 30 videos, and I have yet to sift through them all. But don't worry! It's all coming soon. In the meantime, please enjoy this quote from Aziz Ansari's new book, which I picked up on one of our stops.

 
A few decades ago, if I wanted to research vanilla ice cream, what would I have even done? Cold-approach chubby guys and then slowly steer the convo toward ice cream to get their take? No, thanks.
Nowadays the Internet is my chubby friend. It is the whole world’s chubby friend.
— Aziz Ansari
 

Aziz's book is titled Modern Romance, and came out just this month. It is exactly the book I would have loved to write and research, and it's proving equally as enjoyable to read. If you've ever wanted to read a book that contains the words "Doughnuts for Interviews: a visit to a New York retirement community," then now is your time. For those who don't believe in donuts as much as I do: the book was written by comedian Aziz Ansari of Parks and Recreation fame, and Eric Klinenberg, of equally prestigious NYU sociological professorship fame. Together they tackled the modern world of dating, and the result is educational and hilarious. While you read that, I'll get together pictures from our trip!

Also (in case, again, you're under a rock) I've moved my blog! It's now here, in this delightful space. Please follow along on bloglovin' if you like!
