Last day of summer vibes.
Bought this real leaf craving at an arts festival this weekend!
This book is so important, I wish I could afford to own a copy.
It perfectly outlines the problems (and solutions) with dating and connecting the in the digital age including: thinking about sex, particularly casual, as something one is supposed to do; how the dating apps are designed to keep you on the rather than find someone to get off of them, how porn and dating apps makes us see other people commodities rather than human beings.
I was really excited to read this book as I've long wanted some possible explanations on what leads some people to become super fans. This book however, doesn't even try to guess at any possible explanations. It just sloppily goes back and forth between a recent internet history we all know and the author's stories from her days as a fan of a boy band.
I long for the 90s as critique of the millennial & Gen Z generations stems far beyond the usual intergenerational differences. This book however, is blatantly one guy's perception of that decade. I had to stop reading only in Chapter One when he spent several pages making clear that he didn't understand the premise of the movie Reality Bites. It would be a great topic if it were covered by someone who understands things beyond the surface.
I'm so completely worn out from driving to see my mom in rehab for her hip every day and staying on top of her care. On top of which I've thrown out by back, again, and, as usual, there isn't anything the doctora can do. Paused for a moment at a park near where she is today.
I've been trying to read this one for a while. It's been a stressful few days. My mother fell and broke her hip and is in the hospital. Probably going to be a
long road to recovery. I'm an only child and everything falls to me. Dealing with it alone is hard.
