I would advise anyone to do the same so long as you keep in mind that you're going to be living with that decision and that body of work for a long time. In short: Go where your heart tells you to go. Then consult your brain about logistics.(less)

But I would say the cheese-to-cracker ratio has to be good. And not too much brie. As a culture, there's just far too much focus on brie. (less)

“Life starts out with everyone clapping when you take a poo and goes downhill from there. ”
Sloane Crosley, I Was Told There'd Be Cake
tags: life

“If you have to ask someone to change, to tell you they love you, to bring wine to dinner, to call you when they land, you can’t afford to be with them. It’s not worth the price, even though, just like the Tiffany catalog, no one tells you what the price is. You set it yourself, and if you’re lucky it’s reasonable. You have a sense of when you’re about to go bankrupt. Your own sense of self-worth takes the wheel and says, Enough of this shit. Stop making excuses. No one’s that busy at work. No one’s allergic to whipped cream. There are too cell phones in Sweden. But most people don’t get lucky. They get human. They get crushes. This means you irrationally mortgage what little logic you own to pay for this one thing. This relationship is an impulse buy, and you’ll figure out if it’s worth it later.”
Sloane Crosley, How Did You Get This Number

“I do want to get married. It's a nice idea. Though I think husbands are like tattoos--you should wait until you come across something you want on your body for the rest of your life instead of just wandering into a tattoo parlor on some idle Sunday and saying, 'I feel like I should have one of these suckers by now. I'll take a thorny rose and a "MOM" anchor, please. No, not that one--the big one.”
