"Collective anger, direct action, people caring for each other, willingness, softness in spite of everything, optimism, accountability, forgiveness, solidarity, growth and the possibility of liberation."
"Other than that, coffee is a ritual. Coffee shops during my life in New York City and Brooklyn have been a huge breeding ground for building community and real relationships, and I also just love trying new coffee beans. I guess I’m pretty boring in that sense."
"I like to keep little heartbeats everywhere. If you open my silverware drawer, there’s a pocketknife a boyfriend gave me on my 26th birthday. My bookshelf is lined with bar napkins and pressed flowers, and Photo Booth strips, and concert tickets, and books that are gifts themselves. A handful of people have made the hall of fame of being tattooed onto my skin. I don’t know what exactly I’m scared of forgetting, but I have shoeboxes filled under my bed in my childhood home, organizes just so. People weave in and out of your life and I guess I have collected proof that they were ever there at all."
"Ultimately having a zero-waste home is the end goal for me but in the meantime, I mostly just try to be conscious of what I’m buying for both my home (mostly kitchen) but also my closet and wardrobe. I try to buy as little food as possible that comes in plastic or non-biodegradable materials. In terms of my closet, I’d say about 50-60% is thrifted or purchased second hand."
