I made a thing

I wanted to launch a podcast because (1) I miss my friends who are scattered all over the world, (2) My friends are all spectacular humans who are experts and leaders in their fields, and (3) I miss those epic telephone conversation we used to have in the 80s and 90s.



So here it is! I've just deployed the first three episodes—featuring my friends David Landsel, a travel writer who's been grounded since Covid-19 made landfall on the west coast; Blake Keng, an award-winning product designer who's the most intense person I've ever met (and who, on record, calls me the most intense person he's ever met—this is why we're friends!); and Jee Park, a branding and PR guru in the food and wine industry.

If you like, please have a listen and please subscribe and leave me a five-star review! I love doing these podcasts and I'm excited to do many many more.

New clothes update

It finally hit 85 degrees this weekend and I realized I need clothes to get me through the summer. I've been resisting buying new clothes, for so many reasons. One, I already have so many clothes. Two, I'm 60 pounds down, but I have more to go, and I don't really want to spend a bunch of money on new clothes now to only have to buy more new clothes later. Three, nothing in the stores is really inspiring me right now—the truth is that all I've been buying over the past five months are... workout clothes. But it's hot out there and, hey, at least summer clothes are cheap and cheerful. This weekend I picked up some pieces from the Marimekko x Uniqlo drop: some caftans, T-shirt, and linen wide-leg trousers. I had another order from Gymshark arrive as well, which is great. And I figure with a couple of casual dresses added throughout the season I should be OK. Last summer it rained for four months straight in Hong Kong and I wore Tevas.
