The Weekly Habit: Regathering All of Your Silver and Gold

Guys! How frickin’ dope was that 20 minutes a day of reading? I don’t know about you, but I definitely I’m starting to feel smart again already. And hey, thanks for all the great recommendations in the comments. I’m planning a writing vacay to San Francisco in early October, and I’m going to load up my Kindle with all of your suggestions.

Consider this habit a definite keeper.

Now this week’s habit was actually sparked by the launch of Fierce and Nerdy. It’s funny, because I’m busier than I’ve ever been, but thanks to FaN, I’m also more in contact with my friends than I’ve ever been. And can I tell you, that I’ve just loved all the catching up? It makes me feel both guilty and sad that I haven’t done a better job of keeping in touch with friends in other places — like ever.

And from what I gather, you’re all sort of feeling the same way. As we get older, it’s startling how many friends we haven’t talked to in years. I remember DYING to get out of St. Louis and into the world when I was in high school, but now it seems that my world has become incredibly small, and I’m ashamed to say that I barely keep in touch with my friends in Los Angeles, much less my friends all around the world.

So let’s do something about that this week. Resolve to call or email someone you haven’t talked to in at least three months and catch up. Guidelines after the jump:
