Hi Samantha, you didn’t log any time last week.

How I spent my summer vacation, by Samantha Kate Pollack:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
— watched Stranger Things season 3 and hightailed it to the Asheville Mall, which was not nearly as cool. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
— watched a whole lot of Law & Order SVU, Bosch, and all of Fleabag. Also: started Veronica Mars because Kelly Terry will not leave me alone about it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
— took some couch naps⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
— got stranded in my favorite bookstore during a thunderstorm (I know, tragic)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
— cleaned my house, put up fairy lights on the porch, and spent a lot of time snuggling with the cat.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
— made zucchini bread⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
— got my hair cut⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
— spent a whole Saturday reading Fingersmith by Sarah Waters (click here for my review)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
— went through my Q1 Self Journal and erased every page, so I could reuse it for Q3 #smart #resourceful #cheap #climateanxiety #toomuchtimeonmyhands⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
— went to see Toy Story 4 by myself, because I really wanted to go to the movies and there wasn’t anything I wanted to see. Thought about sneaking into a double feature; decided instead to go home and hang with the cat some more.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
— spent at least 3/14 days in my PJs, sometimes changing clothes right before my husband got home so he wouldn’t know I’d been in my PJs all day.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

(Personality included.)

Want to learn how to craft emails that inspire action and engagement WITHOUT the “tried and true” (cough: patriarchal) norms we’ve all been taught?

I’m doing it, and I can show you how to do it, too.

(But sometimes, I also like to write about the books I’m reading, or the creative process, or the entrepreneurial experience, or why I hate Steve Jobs, or how I met my BFF. I’ll send you emails like that, too.)
