Patterns or obsessions or phases. Late-night online shoe shopping. Permission to nap at odd hours. Maybe you make friends with the mailman. Maybe you find creative ways to feel close to loved ones who live far away. Maybe you play around with something you’re not all that familiar with on the weekends. Maybe you brave sunburns and play hooky for a dear friend’s mid-week birthday. Perhaps you obsess over something — or everything.
