What I'm Doing Now
It's September. I'm home in Crown Heights with my fiance and our three cats. We are thrilled about the impending sweater weather.
Writing is a big part of my life now. After publishing an essay in The New York Times this summer, I'm refining a few older pieces and actively pitching my work. Last month I also accepted a part-time position as Narratively's Editorial Assistant. I just wrapped interviews for my first reported story for them and have moved on to the phase where I tell everyone I'm at the office writing when in actuality, I'm updating my website.
I just started the last year(ish) of my undergrad at The New School. I'm taking classes on writing, writing, and a sociology course on the dimensions of feeling shameful about not writing (i'm only half-kidding). Proud to be this year's Editor-in-Chief of 12th Street, the Riggio Honors Writing Program's literary journal. We just finalized our 2018 masthead and many of my editors are better writers than me. It's going to be a good year.
My first half-marathon was two weeks ago. Happy to share that I did not die and am considering running another one in November because if I stop running now but continue eating all of the bagels, my pants will no longer fit come Christmas time.
Currently reading Kelly Sundberg's "Goodbye, Sweet Girl."
This "now" page was inspired by my sometimes-boss, Derek Sivers.
