Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links


Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links 29.08.22

BY NOW YOU’VE heard of Quiet Quitting, as it’s been mentioned by every major news outlet for the past month or so. Like everything these days, it’s a term that’s attributed to a Gen Z TikTokker and it means no longer going above and beyond at work, but doing only what you’ve been hired to do and nothing more. In other words, common sense. It’s the way I’ve handled all of my jobs, long ago when I had actual jobs and hadn’t started TIG yet. And even though I had two separate jobs for the first two years after I started this digital publication (not at the same time⏤left one for the other), I always only did what those positions required, starting at nine and leaving at five, choosing to forgo unpaid work. According to Gen Z, Quiet Quitting means valuing a work/life balance and not letting their jobs define their lives. It’s something that perhaps came out of the pandemic, when we all felt mortal and took some time to really think about how we were living our lives. Today was the last bank holiday of the summer and I was telling my friend Libby how I already saw some faintly red and some definitely bright yellow leaves on some of the trees and even some fallen ones. The sunset is now just after 8:00 pm and you know how melancholic that makes me. But we have some exciting plans for the next few months and lots of planning to do before then, so there’s no time to be wistful…

This week’s links include the Aristide, Syros hotel in Greece and a memoriam of the late Issey Miyake; beauty filters, solar panels, and much, much more.
