This Week in Experimental

This Week in Experimental Vol 88


Hello Experimenters!

It’s beautiful out again! I’m writing to you while sitting in sunshine and watching a very happy puppy run around the yard with sticks. It’s funny how little it takes to shift my mood. I woke up longing to go right back to sleep, but I have thawed as the sun has warmed the world around me. There’s also the impending end of the semester to look forward to. I hope that you’ve found a ray of sunshine to bask in today–no matter how fleeting it might be.

Ramadan Mubarak,

Things to Do
Assignment: Sleep in one day this week. You may have to schedule it in advance, and you’ll likely have to take something off your to do list, but I have a feeling you need it. Rest without guilt.

Journal: What’s the last thing you read that you really enjoyed? What did you like about it? How did it make you feel? How much do you think the author considered that potential feeling? What did they do to help you get there?
