So it’s been almost three weeks since the last time I posted one of these. For awhile, I considered either posting these once a month instead of once a week or just quietly letting this series die out. Ultimately, I decided against either option, concluding that doing these weekly reflections really helps me re-center myself after a long and exhausting week of near-adult responsibilities. Also, I need an excuse to visit coffee shops and cafes at least once a week. Another reason why it’s been a minute since I posted one of these was the unmitigated (and unexpected) chaos that occurred in the weeks after I came back from my short vacation in Sacramento. But I am back, ready to get back into the grind of posting these every week. Without further ado, here is how this week panned out for me.
