2017, what a time to be alive! It’s kind of a little bit like that feeling you get when you’re in a creepy, isolated house with lots of glass windows at nighttime // you don’t want to look outside because it’s terrifying, but also, you should probably do it anyway just in case there is a psychopathic murderer standing in the woods. A REAL SOPHIE’S CHOICE, Y’KNOW?! It’s enough to drive any decent human being mad, so we’ve decided to ask friends and other cool people to give their two cents on how to remedy the insanity with self-care, whether it’s through YouTube videos, pictures of puppies, pizza…WHATEVER!
Today’s sanity advice comes from Morgan Hungerford West, an artist, content creator, and creative resource using hands-on visuals and good internet-vibes to curate environments, experiences, and special moments (online and IRL) that make you feel like you’re in the right place. Founder: @aCreativeDC + #aCreativeDC + www.aCreativeDC.com!
The longer I think about this the more I’m like “how can anyone be sane right now, am I actually not sane today and can I say that out loud?” but all that said, internet escapism is more or less doing its job. For maximum, needing-a-break type of situations: longform.org, @browsbyzoe, and artist Rose Jaffe’s WOMYN animation.
