Gretchen Rubin Gretchen Rubin's blog:

Last week, I talked about some excellent advice I got very indirectly — from my law-school roommate’s ex-boyfriend. You never know where good advice will come from.


Here’s something else he told me: Try to check every box. If you want a job or a position, make yourself the easy, non-controversial,...

A little while ago, Gentle Reader,


I collected a bunch of questions for Lord Akeldama, for his occasional Dear Lord Akeldama column here on my blog. Most of these, I found, were about fashion and style. Some were more suited to a kind of meme than the Good Vampire’s usual verboseness.


So here, for...

A couple of years ago around this time, I started a project called my Year of Trees. I took a picture of the same street every week for a year, noting the changes to the trees that line that road and then put it into a video. I really enjoyed it and a number of my readers did too, so I decided to...

He wouldn’t budge, because an angel stood before it, preventing it from going in the direction God hadn’t intended. Can you see the powe...

My parents and I used to make up funny names for people or things. A favorite velour jacket was my “scabaranzer.” When flowers died, t... Read more of this blog post »
