Modern Romance

Modern Romance, a book by Aziz Ansari, is a surprising look at love in the modern age of technology. At first glance I thought it was going to be a book about love from the perspective of a comedian. Instead, Ansari uses his humor and works with researchers on real data, relevant to the topic at hand.

Much more interesting, and funny, than originally expected. At times shocking, absurd, insightful, but also rings true.

Have been listening to this song on repeat for about a week now. A collaboration between Taylor Swift and Zayn, made for the upcoming Fifty Shades Darker film.

At first the song doesn’t hit you, but then on second and third listen it really starts to have impact. Already Number 1 in 80 countries. Enjoy.
