Stop living for your LinkedIn life update.
It’s not about that. None of this is about that. No matter if 1,000 people like your “new job” post on Facebook, your hands-in-the-air Insta, your pop of champagne when the job finally’s settled.
The world might try and tell you that what you spend your time on might not be for much.
That bustin yo butt to do well on something you care about isn’t worth it. That a project you canttttt stop thinking about isn’t allowed to happen.
Raise your hand if you’ve ever received an email from LinkedIn pushing you to celebrate someone starting a new job, and oh look! It’s someone you’re friends of friends with and oh look! They just got your dream job at your dream company in your dream city.
It's okay to embrace your side hustle.
That project you open on your laptop during class.
That community you can't wait to get back to.
That thing-that-makes-you-come-alive...which might not be your job.
You're allowed to invite it into your time.
Hi, I'm Chlo.
I've been writing and reading and all the storytelling things since I learned as a kid that if you fold and staple construction paper together, it sort of looks like a real book. I have always craved soul serving stories- ones that melt like butter in your mind as you hear your heart explained out loud.
This here is my home away from home. When I'm not exploring neighborhood coffeehouses, driving down the Pacific Coast (again), or loving on all my people - I'm probably here, with you. Come on in! Scroll around. I hope you feel less alone.
