This dissertation is brought to you by…

A running list of things/people that have been sustaining me for the past year, in no particular order:

  • Mac’n’cheese
  • Childcare, both affordable and not
  • Nap time
  • Spotify
  • Google Maps

  • My personal map of Palermo
  • Video calls
  • My laptop
  • Historical sewing YouTube

Surprising omissions from this list:

  • Tea
  • coffee (seriously, I thought that both parenthood and dissertating would make a coffee drinker out of me, but apparently not)
  • WhatsApp
  • Amazon
  • sugar (my body thanks my brain)
