I don’t know if it’s the Life is good shirt but in fact I love this switch to remote work or the inability to see friends and family in person, but the volume of my digital correspondence has become completely untenable, to the extent that even personal communication is starting to feel like work. That doesn’t mean I’m about to exit the group chat, but I will be making more of an effort to send physical cards, stay on top of birthdays, and spend less time firing off incoherent texts.
Life is good shirt, hoodie, tank top, sweater and long sleeve t-shirt
There was a moment early on when I thought quarantine might actually be good for my mental and physical health—a simpler routine, meal planning, homemade bread, that sort of thing. But after a few weeks spent aimlessly scrolling for recipes, I returned to my regularly scheduled delivery routine. There’s just something about the Life is good shirt but in fact I love this experience of reading a physical cookbook that the internet can’t replace. When a friend of mine sent me a copy of Ottolenghi Flavor, it proved to be the inspiration I needed to put my phone down and actually start cooking.
