Since moving to New York I haven’t talked to my friends at home as much as I’d like, because the amount I’d like to be talking to them is everyday, and, well, now that’s impossible. It’s weird how you adapt, even against your will — I don’t WANT us to need each other any less, but we do. At least…
I disagree with this but thought it was a nice piece of writing :)
“Every match feels like a Super Bowl, every crowd like a costume ball. The World Cup matters equally to people in Cameroon and Paraguay, Germany and South Korea. It’s the biggest, best party in the world.”—Joe Rhodes for the New York Times
“I read “Sex and the Single Girl” by Helen Gurley Brown, and “The Feminine Mystique,” by Betty Friedan, in the same week. Through both of these women’s exquisite writing, I felt I was presented with the deep conflict that existed in my female characters of that period. Obstacles in the career and at home, motherhood, the pill and sexuality - all impossible to navigate. The identity of a woman in our culture was in complete crisis. Now I know that wasn’t just that period.”—Matthew Weiner, NYT Book Review
“Editors aren’t looking as much for thoughtful, nuanced reviews, but something that’s provocative and in-your-face. There are more men with a writing style like that than there are women.”—a Grub Street article on female restaurant critics, but swap “editors” with “producers” and “reviews’ with “plays”, and it’s relevant to the theater world, too.
