AK Monthly Recap: October 2019

October is one of my favorite months of the year, and this year I got to enjoy it in three countries. I do enjoy drinking pumpkin spice lattes while draped in layers of flannel and tall boots as much as the next basic bitch, but it’s more than that. October is a time for growth — there’s something about fall that always makes me want to buckle down and work. Maybe that’s a remnant from my school days. Right now, I’m focused on getting EVERYTHING out before the end of the year. More po...

Allow five to seven d...

This process goes back to an age when people still had time — time to live, time to enjoy. In our day, we face the puzzling fact that the more time-saving gadgets we invent, the more new buttons to push in order to “sa...
