About this newsletter.
Humdrum is all about interesting and ordinary things, like how to maybe not optimize my life, a bad experience at the gynecologist, and discovering a whole jar of molasses in an Airbnb. These topics aren’t necessarily dramatic or “newsworthy.” But this kind of stuff is interesting anyway. It’s the kind of stuff we talk to our friends about over tea or a glass of wine. The stuff that might anger us or confuse us or fascinate us. This is the shit we deal with everyday.
I’m Christina, a Chicago-based writer and user experience researcher. I spend a lot of my time studying how people use and think about digital products and the world around them. My first book, the memoir Failing Better, is now available at Amazon and other outlets.
