I’ll be honest, I would not exactly consider myself pop-culture-knowledgeable. My pre-school teacher nicknamed me Caitie the Old Lady when I was *2*. So I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised that I really did not know or care to know what Coachella was…I had heard of it but didn’t much care to learn a lot about it. But for some reason I’ve been more inundated with it this year, and despite not knowing anything about it beyond what Wikipedia tells me, I found this page pretty funny.
“Yeah, the doctor was confused. It was my first time there and he had my old prescription
and he asks what I did cuz this was such a drastic jump between prescriptions. And then I told him I was in law school and he said, ‘Oh, okay that’s normal then.’”—Law school friend on his glasses prescription doubling.
I read this article recently about limiting the choices in your life for your own mental health. It talked about (and bear with me here) how men make fewer choices in general than women — even a simple thing like getting dressed in the morning involves far fewer choices. Anyone who has tried to define business casual for men vs. women understands this. Every work day, men will generally put on a collared shirt and slacks, maybe a tie depending on the work place. A woman will don a skirt and blouse, or a skirt and t-shirt, or a dress, or slacks and a collared shirt, or slacks and a cute blouse and a jacket…you get my point. I read this article and resolved to make the mundane choices in my life less choice-y — to have a go-to “uniform” (for me, this is usually my favorite jeans, a solid t, and a cute scarf, despite the fact that Boyf “supposedly” hates scarves), a go-to lunch, a go-to running route.
I’ve become a little obsessed with this idea, though, so I’m thinking of buying this e-book: The No Brainer Wardrobe. For anyone whose ever seen me (or heard the story of how me and the boyfriend met — spoiler alert, it involves my complete lack of fashion), you know I’m sartorially…challenged. Which would normally mean I’m not one to read a book about clothes. But somehow I’m totally drawn to this concept. I’ll let you know what I think. ;)
