Podcast – My business school classmate, Chris Yeh, and I are doing a series of podcasts with classmates. We see this as a way to connect with each other in the absence of our cancelled reunion. The first one is Chris and me interviewing each other and the others are us interviewing a variety of classmates. We’re still going (and HBS 2000 folks out there: please email me!) We have a set of questions we ask everyone (serious and less serious) and the conversations turn out to be free-floating and very interesting. I’m fortunate to be a part of such a great group of people. You can find The Chris Yeh Podcast at the link above or on the podcast app if you use an iphone.
Instagram – I already loved this app and I do way more now. It makes me feel connected to others in a way that I cherish. Also, I highly recommend Jill Kargman’s daily Dzanielle videos – hilarious.
Cooking – Like so many of us, I’m cooking a LOT these days. I’m lucky that I love to cook. We’ve been making lots of vegetable curries, experimenting with tofu, grilling chicken and steaks, and making bread. I baked a cake from scratch for Grace’s half birthday celebration last weekend. As I mentioned in the last of these, I’m loving Dinner a Love Story these days. What are you loving cooking?
Books – I’m reading a lot. I recently enjoyed The Heirs by Susan Rieger, Moonlight Mile by Dennis Lehane, and Killing Floor by Lee Child. Plot is very important to me these days. I’m waiting for On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous by Ocean Vuong from the library.
TV – We just finished this final season of Homeland and I think it was the best yet. SO GOOD. Still watching the all winner season of Survivor and sometimes Matt and I watch Veep.
What are you reading, cooking, thinking about, and loving lately? I am sincerely asking.
I write these Things I Love posts approximately monthly. You can find them all here.
