I'm excited to share some of the things I've been reading and watching and nonstop talking about this summer.
OJ: MADE IN AMERICA // I cannot rave about this documentary enough. It's phenomenally done and incredibly thought-provoking. It will challenge your critical thinking skills in the best way, and the relevance of this roller coaster of a story is so valuable. It would be great if everyone could watch it so we could talk about it in great detail.
THE ARRANGEMENTS // This short story by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is told from the first person perspective of Melania Trump, and it's brilliant. I know it's fiction, but it weirdly feels like the most realistic or precise thing I've read about the Trumps. Adichie nails it (duh).
AN INTERACTIVE GUIDE TO AMBIGUOUS GRAMMAR // Read it all the way through.
YELLOW BLUE YELLOW BLUE // My friend Steph Opitz wrote this essay about living in Kyrgyzstan. She's fabulous, and so are her words (mostly the English ones).
REVISIONIST HISTORY // Malcolm Gladwell's new podcast gives an interesting framework through which to think about and interpret our world. I know it overly simplifies and waters down complex issues and ideas, but it's still interesting and enjoyable (and worth exercising those critical thinking muscles).
