#BreakThings: Time Passes Anyway
Like most of you, I am struggling. As we enter the eighth month of the pandemic, it shocks me how different my life looks today than it did in February. In a year where all of the days have felt the same, change happens anyway.
I started this newsletter hoping to bring a little levity to the every day. To that time around 2:00PM when you just need a minute to yourself. And I hope that you’re enjoying it as much as I am.
So without further adieu, let’s break apart this Monday monotony.

So much of life is trying to decide what to make for dinner. So when I spotted this list of recipes from TheKitchn, made from eggs and pantry scraps, I was sold. It’s just so nice to know that even humble ingredients can become a satisfying meal when you’re staring at a fridge full of nothing-to-eat.
Every love story is unique, but this one — about a couple who married at the same Dunkin’ Donuts where they met — is also sweet. (Oof, bad puns, it must be Monday.)
Recently, I realized that one of my oldest friendships is headed toward its end. Nothing about the friendship feels healthy or positive anymore, and we’ve entered deep frenemy territory. So it’s just time to let it go.
This article from Verywell talks about the reasons friendships end and discusses how you can exit gracefully.
Sitting at your desk all day causes muscle fatigue, soreness, and pain. Relieve it with this acupressure mat from Amazon. It takes some getting used to, but laying on this mat for a while each day can help your body and your mind get through this strange time. I try to use mine before bed for better sleep.
