What is Existential Ergonomics?

“Man is condemned to be free; because once thrown into the world, he is responsible for everything he does. It is up to you to give [life] a meaning.” --Jean-Paul Sartre What if we could wrestle down life’s big questions using the scientific method?

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to those celebrating today! Whether you're visiting loved ones, sharing a meal with friends, or cozied up with leftovers and a good book, I hope your day is filled with love, patience, laughter, and lots of tasty food!

Hi there! I will soon be joining a book club with my mom, sister, aunts, and cousins. Here's where you come in. We're looking for recommendations. Have you read any knock-your-socks off books recently, particularly one that makes you think or makes for a great discussion? So far, we've seen the below suggestions, but are... Continue Reading →

White Poverty Is Now A Privilege

The other day, I excitedly sent my boyfriend to my favorite bookstore to pick up some early Christmas gifts. I haven't been in years, so I was looking forward to pictures and a rundown of all things books. Upon entering the store, a green-haired employee gave my boyfriend a dirty look. Two twenty-something men behind... Continue Reading →

Down The Uncanny Valley Rabbit Hole

The other day, my boyfriend showed me the below tweet, which he stumbled upon on the interwebs. It immediately creeped me out, and I can't stop thinking about it. When we first started dating, my boyfriend talked extensively about the Simulation Theory, which hypothesizes that reality is merely an ultra-high-tech computer simulation in which we...

Web Miscellany: Compilation #99

Hello, friend! How are you? Things have been hectic around these parts. No, that's a lie. My treatment for biotoxin illness makes me sleepy, so the 10 hours of sleep a night is the likely culprit behind my lack of time. In those few extra moments, I've been trying to reread some old books, get... Continue Reading →

Web Miscellany: Compilation #98

Hello, friend! How are you? Well, one month into my new job, I just helped my employer pass our most recent external audit. It was both stressful and exhilarating, and involved a 5am - 2pm workday to accommodate the Eastern time schedule. This meant afternoons were spent in a frenzied state of sewing madness, with...

A Brighter Future Begins Today

When I first met my partner, he was very much involved in a local group that taught civics to kids and adults, helped members of the community register to vote, and campaigned for group members running for local government positions. Our acquaintances--everyday people--have gone on to become a state senator, a state representative, and a... Continue Reading →

Web Miscellany: Compilation #97

Hello, friend! How are you? After however long into this mess we are now, the pandemic is beginning to feel a bit lonely and listless. I spent my twenties building up habits for success and inner peace, many of which has slowly dwindled away over the last year. I feel like it's time to rebuild... Continue Reading →

Web Miscellany: Compilation #96

Hello, friend! How are you? Frankly, I'm exhausted, and that's all. Life is going alright: I'm three weeks deep at a great new job and my East Coast colleagues are giving me a tiny taste of autumn with their mustard- and rust-colored sweaters. (I can almost smell the cinnamon and pumpkin spice through the screen!)... Continue Reading →

Web Miscellany: Compilation #95

Hello, friend! How are you? I am pooped. I started a new job this week, and it has been fantastic! But, I am exhausted. I had over a dozen video meet-and-greets (which, as an introvert, can be quite exhausting), lots of reading, and even a 5am meeting. I don't even have the energy to consider... Continue Reading →

Web Miscellany: Compilation #94

Hello, friend! What have you been up to this week? How are you doing? Yesterday was my last day at my job, and I'm excited to start at my new opportunity on Monday! Last weekend, I sifted through old photos and news paper clippings of my grandmother's family with my mom. In addition to childhood... Continue Reading →
