A still from 30 Rock.
"It’s a lot easier to paint yourself as a charming, chip-guzzling sloth whose body is not your temple when there are people who would literally build temples to your body."
I recently embraced my inner killjoy and wrote an article on the politics of self-deprecation. If you're curious and not too affronted by the above excerpt about Jennifer Lawrence, you are welcome to read it in full here.

Fashion advice that flirts with vice.

I've yet to tire of satire. Perhaps because 2017 was The Year of The Thesis, writing serious work on the side often felt less appealing than having a laugh.
This love of satire seems to have snowballed, however, for I found myself at the close of the year writing tongue-in-cheek fashion advice for the chic among us. What a note on which to graduate from university...! How far we have all come, indeed.
Nevertheless, the fact remains that I am now a satirical sartorial savant, at least for five trendy minutes. Feel free to read more here, if you dare.
Happy New Year!
