In a committee meeting last week, my principal started off by asking everyone to share what they are reading, watching, or listening to. It was a delight to hear about what my colleagues were consuming. So I asked a couple of my classes the same question as their exit ticket and felt the same zing of connection. And they were happy to share.
So, here you go. The What I’m Consuming series of this blog, title subject to change.
Reading: Arthur C. Brooks on the Secrets to Happiness at Work - I mostly liked the advice but some of it read as a tad out of touch or maybe with an agenda of supporting businesses in getting workers back to the office.
The House in the Pines by Ana Reyes - I’m about halfway through. It’s a little odd but I’m along for the ride.
Listening to: Boundaries, Burnout, and the Goopification of Self-Care on the Ezra Klein show. Man, this was good. It features Dr. Pooja Lakshmin, author of the NY Times series “The Primal Scream”.
Back to the Beach with Kristin and Stephen - a treat for the millennials who watched Laguna Beach.
