The Weekend List (No. 6)

It can be so hard to come back from vacation, but I have to say that I made a good decision this time around. Instead of coming back as late as possible on Sunday, I took a late morning flight on Saturday and was back in my apartment by 3 pm. As much as I would have liked to stay in Florida as long as possible, it was nice to have a day-and-a-half to get settled in, stop at Shake Shack, and stock the house with groceries.

On Sunday night, I listened to the newest episode of This American Life which ended up being one of my very favorites. It followed a group of inmates at a high-security prison over the course of six months as they learned and performed Act V of Hamlet. This was such a great episode because these men provided an interesting, new take on Shakespeare. They are violent criminals acting out the inner thoughts of Hamlet who contemplates committing an act of violence, so their connection to the play is unexpectedly apt. You can listen to 'Act V' here.

I loved reading Ruth Bader Ginsburg's Advice for Living column for the Times. RBG is such an inspiration and it's refreshing to hear from her in a time when all that seems to be published anymore are articles serving as evidence of our country's fast spiral downward.

Create & Cultivate posted a great article about the ways Instagram is changing and how you can adapt your feed to these changes. It's pretty interesting, but not necessarily surprising, to hear that Stories is becoming more important than your actual feed.

If you follow me on Pinterest, you'll also see that I've been obsessively pinning old New Yorker covers.
