things i know (this week, anyway) #33

- In addition to its karmic virtue, and the fact that it's just the right thing to do, the world is very, very small, so be as kind as possible to everyone you meet.

- Emily Gould's Friendship is the best book I've read this year.

- Cats do LITERALLY NOTHING BUT SLEEP all day long.

- There are few things that make a person feel older like the moment when someone whose diaper you have changed adds you on Facebook.

- Arguing with people on the internet is like arguing with a racist grandparent: nobody's stance gets changed and you just feel pissed off for the rest of the day.

- What fairytales and rom-coms don't tell you is that a huge component of romantic love is making space for the other person to be him/herself.

- I don't think I will ever get used to seeing my cookbooks in bookstores or commercials for Young & Hungry. It's weird every time.

- Net Neutrality is very important. Read up on it.

- The easiest way to step up your culinary game is to use an extra virgin olive oil that actually tastes good. My pick for a budget-friendly bottle is this one.
