How To Make Dryer Balls From Yarn
I’m back from Mexico! Goodness, it was lovely. I don’t know why I waited so long to go! I spent almost two years in Southeast Asia before I traveled south of the border. I hit the ground running, attending a Wits show
the day after I got back. Now I’m reveling in using my whole wardrobe, doing laundry, and having some semblance of a routine. On February 22nd, I’m back on the road, heading to Alaska for the Iditarod!

Do you get wound up, worrying what people are thinking of you?
“Everyone is staring at how weird I am.”
“Everyone is staring at how gorgeous you are,” he replied.
“No, they think I look gay and out-of-place. Like I’m some weirdo the likes of which they’ve never seen.”
“Well you can choose to believe that. Or choose to believe they are looking at you because you are beautiful. It’s your choice. You’ll never know what they’re really thinking.

First: Any journalist on an all-expense-paid-and-then-some trip to Russia to cover the Winter Olympics is living a dream. Every reporter there is experiencing a great privilege. Speaking from experience, it’s one an overwhelming number of journalists covering the games from newsrooms half a world away would give their eye teeth for.
Second: Your door doesn’t have a handle yet? You have to throw your toilet paper in the trash instead of flush it? Those living conditions are exponentially better than what billions of people around the world experience every day.
Things to make/cook/bake/eat: creamy polenta and mushrooms, truffled popcorn, persimmon prosciutto and brie grilled cheese, crispy buffalo style quinoa sliders with sweet corn and scallions.
