I find myself over here more often these days. Enjoy.
I don't usually dig advice columns. I find them trite and antiquated normally.
This one is different, it's heartfelt and raw. The author, Cheryl Strayed gives personal details about her life that so many advice columnists avoid. The thing is - this is what makes her answers pack a punch. This is what makes me want to just post up at her bar and drink too many bloody mary's and just cry. I know I could come to her with anything and she would have a way to make me feel better about the situation.
So please my friends, check out Sugar, The Rumpus Advice Column.
Also, my favorite post and the post that lead me to her amazing writing in the first place.
Tiffany Ford produced a public journal series called No Shame November. Her mix of hand painted and drawn entries are lighthearted, yet heartfelt. I can completely relate to these entries as the type of person who cannot always put things into words. "Let me SHOW you how I feel"
Pop Up Flea is up and going in New York this weekend. This is an amazingly curated event with vendors from all over the US. Head on over and say "hi" to my friends at Schoolhouse Electric today 3-9, Sat 11-6, Sun 11-6 at 443 W 18th St. NYC. I love seeing my hand-painted banner getting put to good use.
