Things to do:

  • Read.

  • Write.

  • Travel.

  • Put out the vibe.

  • Hang with bae.

  • Cook. In particular, I like to bake. Some say that isn't manly, but it's a true man who can admit that. If you disagree, I'll whip up an extraordinarily hot souffle and we sit down, enjoy it, and discuss...

  • Continue putting out the vibe.
