tonight's pick-me-ups

Things we're doing to unwind and get cozy before bed tonight: 

Getting all our ducks in a row. Prioritizing your to-do's can seem daunting, especially when the list is a mile long. Try categorizing tasks by which are important and which are urgent.

📽️ Imitating the greats. Who doesn't love a good biopic? From David Bowie to Aretha Franklin, these new films dive deep into some epic stories.

📔 Creating a personal brand. Bullet journals are a super creative and personal form of organization. Whether you're a pro or a beginner,
these three Bujo lovers have some unique and helpful inspo.

🌠 Stocking up our survival kit. Hold on to your sanity, Mercury is in retrograde again (the first of three times this year). Fill your life with
things to get through this trying time, like affirmation cards and soothing sleep sprays.

bedtime stories

Reads when you're up late anyway. Here are tonight's round-up for every occasion:

 CAREER 
For when you're just Winging it ~ Audrey Gelman is a successful business woman that seems to have it all together, but this CEO opens up about her struggles to keep it real and create a thriving business. "Last fall, I was the first visibly pregnant CEO on the cover of a business magazine. The accompanying Inc. profile celebrated the successes of The Wing, a network of spaces for women that I co-founded with Lauren Kassan. Off the page, we were having real challenges as a company. But I wasn’t talking about those. Instead, I was selling a new version of a decades-old fantasy that, as women, we can have it all: Be a young CEO, scale a fast-growing business, start a family. Not pictured were the brutal demands of growth, the overwhelming, uncharted waters of new motherhood, and the fear of failure that comes along with being a founder ... The myth doesn’t account for the reality that running a company is messy, terrifying, and often chaotic, especially in the early years."

 TECHNOLOGY  For when a computer runs your life, literally ~ Hospitality and retail workers are known for having sporadic hours and hectic schedules, which has led many companies to turn to algorithms to do the heavy lifting. Sounds great in theory, but TBH it's making everyone miserable. "Many of the core issues with the software are still widespread, along with a lack of transparency on its inner workings. Despite the negative attention, automated scheduling systems are affecting an increasing amount of the retail and food industry workforce — which includes roughly one in five workers in the US, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics — and it’s making them miserable. 'Because there isn't a way to guarantee week-to-week that I [could have] certain days off depending on what the system dictates, it makes it really hard to plan anything outside of work,' Kyle, a former full-time worker at Target, told Motherboard."

 RELATIONSHIPS  For when dating isn't getting any easier ~ It's hard enough to find a guy that offers to pay on the first date, not to mention one that you want to spend the rest of your life with. The dating game has become more of a numbers and data crunch these days, which isn't fun for anyone. "The idea that a dating pool can be analyzed as a marketplace or an economy is both recently popular and very old: For generations, people have been describing newly single people as 'back on the market' and analyzing dating in terms of supply and demand ... The idea that a population of single people can be analyzed like a market might be useful to some extent to sociologists or economists, but the widespread adoption of it by single people themselves can result in a warped outlook on love."

 LIFESTYLE  For when flipping isn't just for real estate ~ Enter the new world of flipping fashion. AKA finding steals at thrift shops and turning around to sell them for top dollar. "Obviously, going from Lifestyle to Business requires some effort (and basic skills for dealing with pricing, shipping, and random fees). It’ll also require these insider tips. Grab a pen. You’ll want to take notes. It’s alllll about branding, and you’ve gotta think big — as in on par with any other online shopping experience (watch your back, Revolve). This means a clear, preplanned POV for your collection. If a customer can get a good sense of your style and you’re constantly bringing in more that fits that mold, she’ll return because you’re consistent. Voilà: Now, you’re known for killer high-waisted denim or a breezy, boho Free People mood."
