Time for a mid-month check-in!
Reading: Ocean Vuong, On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous
Audio: The cast recording of the new Oklahoma! revival
Video: The new season of Stranger Things
Art: Hudson Rising at the New-York Historical Society
Eats & Treats: Excellent pizza at Bread & Salt (Jersey City) and Ogliastro (Brooklyn)
Drink: I tried a can (!) of rosé that my friend T. brought back from California. New-fangled!
Garb: Lightweight black dresses with wispy floral-print scarves, a.k.a. my summer uniform
Beauty Products: Zinc cream and antihistamines, to fight my recurring allergic (?) dermatitis. Drat.
Pleasure: Just totally reworked my CV to include both sides of my “identity,” art history and perfume culture. That was an interesting task.
Plan: Clean my desk at home so that I can do my next round of research projects in a tidier setting!
