THIS IS AMAZING.
This is so so great! Go you!!
Thanks for this!
This was a wonderful piece. I especially related to this: "[...] it just felt real. I had spent the past few months anxiously desiring fuzzy, abstract things [...]that I’d forgotten what it was like to see something I wanted with sharpness and clarity."
Great advice! Articles like this one are why I keep coming back to The Billfold. Also great choice of pic, as always.
You're happy with your current laptop. Take the check!!
I have a candy bar phone, since it has the QWERTY keyboard that I like. But I'm with you about not needing to be reachable via 5 modes of communication at all hours of the day and night.
I really enjoyed this, thank you! But sadly, the Grammar Nazi inside of me wasn't as thrilled.. "I’m was not going to" "subway fair" "I reside myself" Really-- you're a writer?
Mike Dang! I didn't know you sometimes edit Longreads. For some reason, this makes me very happy.
