Weekend Reads: Self Care
Beach near my Mom's house
I'm heading up to my mom's this weekend and going to potentially do some cross country skiing... we'll see if I can extricate myself from Financial Reporting!! :)
I've decided I need a break from politics. Self-care and all that. So I started listening to Barbarian Days on Audible to take a break from Ezra Klein and the Weeds. It has great reviews and won the Pulitzer prize in 2016, so I'm glad to have something to take my mind off of things. I'm also realizing that I need to go out and take some pictures. Maybe this weekend I'll do some photography and be creative for a moment. It might be a nice counterbalance to feeling a bit insecure over my accounting skills. What are you doing for self-care these days?
