Happy birthday to me and all my fellow Aquarians this season
It’s my birthday this weekend. I absolutely love birthdays, especially my own. I like to think it’s ~healthy~ to take at least one day a year to unashamedly celebrate the miracle that is one’s own life.
In the spirit of self-indulgence, I’m taking a week off from writing an essay in the newsletter. Instead, I’m resurfacing some of my favourite issues from the archives.
This was probably my favourite newsletter to write. It was a real curveball for me as it wasn’t at all in line with my usual content. But it was so damn fun to nerd out about an old TV show, about which I have a surprising amount to say.
A theme I often return to in these weekly dispatches is my career identity crisis. In this issue, I called it for what it is and asked myself a really hard question.
I have a love/hate relationship with my inbox. The adrenaline rush of good email is always countered by the crushing blow of a bad one.
At the beginning of the pandemic, I bought a set of two-inch fake nails and inadvertently superglued them to my fingers. Then I realised that I had to write 3,000 words of my book draft. In this post, my most-read newsletter, I wrote about the surprising discoveries I made about my writing process
Happy Aquarius season to you all!
Fantastic, Happy Birthday
Happy birthday Anna
