Stories I loved this week.
Jet lag is a killer, isn’t it? We landed from Toronto yesterday morning and despite the common advice to just adjust to the timezone you’re in straightaway, we climbed into bed and didn’t wake up until 3pm. I’ll take dealing with a toddler that’s awake late over dealing with an overtired toddler any day. Now it’s time to get back into the swing of things, avoid the post holiday blues and embrace fall in London. It’s been really nice to see the fall foliage and the beautiful colours emerge. Note to self: buy rain boots for little J!
I’m fascinated by this article. Microaggressions and trigger warnings are such a foreign concept to me and it sounds like they’re becoming more and more prevalent on American campuses. The authors of this article posit that this is a bad thing as these young adults who are pushing for this won’t be able to deal with workplace realities where their feelings won’t especially be taken into consideration.
