1. Zen.

    Tumblr, how do you find your zen headspace when you work with someone who is senior to you, makes more than you, and is PROFOUNDLY fucking unqualified for their job to the point people are having to make up for their incompetence TWO months into them starting this job?

    I always put together a playlist each month of new music - and August was an incredible month for it. Here it is.

Currently reading for my office book club but it’s taking forever because I have to keep taking “how much longer do I have to listen to this asshole talk?” breaks. 

Add this to the list of Way Effing Overrated Books (along with Gone Girl)

  4. Universal truths.

    So, in case you haven’t had the pleasure of hearing this lately, it is NOT a universal human truth that saying “you look tired!” is rude. as. fuck.

    Two weeks ago, a barista at the Starbucks I go to every morning said “You look tired!”

    This morning, when I’m paying at aforementioned Starbucks and aforementioned barista is ringing me up, we’re making casual conversation about the weekend/it being Friday. Her final comment: “I bet you’re ready for the long weekend, I often see you look tired!”

    "As recounted in journalist Clara Bingham’s 1997 book ‘Women on the Hill,’ Murray found herself alone in an elevator one evening with 91-year-old Sen. Strom Thurmond (R-S.C.), who did not recognize her as a colleague. He inquired whether the ‘little lady’ was married — and then proceeded to grope her breast, Bingham wrote."

    I actually really liked this post and so, being the asshole I am, took the quiz myself and made K do the same.

    Our “languages” were in the exact same order from high to low, and almost precisely the same score for each, with “Quality Time” winning out overall. Welp, that makes things easier.

    Amy Poehler just schooled Neal Brennan on what it’s like to be a woman with one sentence 

    Oh, Amy. How do we love thee? Let us count the ways. 

    For one, she can make a feminist argument zing like a “Weekend Update” punchline, a skill she demonstrated as a recent guest on The Approval Matrix, the Sundance Network’s new panel show. During her interview, Poehler was asked about modern men and the difficult challenges men face.

    Poehler has never been shy about women’s issues | Follow micdotcom

    Celebrity sighting.

    I was on the Metro to a client meeting around 8:15 this morning, dreading the 5-hour meeting I was on my way to, when TA-NEHISI COATES sits down like 3 feet from me.

    If you don’t know who he is (my heart is breaking), start with this. He is one of my favorite essayists/journalists, and everything he writes I can’t stand how beautiful it is. It took everything in me not to fan girl the fuck out, and I was definitely staring at him like a total idiot.
