My go-to piece of writing in times of confusion and listlessness is David Foster Wallace's "This is Water." My friend, Jen, knows about this. Once I posted an IG story of just those words, "This is Water" (I think it was a book cover or sommat, which incidentally is my phone background now, and she replied with a heart-eyes emoji. I liked that we didn't have to say anything to "understand" each other.) I forget now whether I or she introduced it to the other. Or if I found out about it on my own. Go read it.
