Happy Friday! I’m trying out this new category called “Friday Favorites” which would be a range of random things that I like each week. It could be a podcast I really enjoyed listening to, a TV show I’m currently watching, a great meme, a post or tweet that made me laugh, etc. I may not be able to do this weekly right now, but I do intend to do these things more frequently in the future if you (the reader) & I like this in the long run.
Sometimes, I have bad days or bad weeks. I find myself getting stressed out to the point where I cry or I feel really down some days & perhaps doing these could help me be a little stronger mentally. These “Friday Favorites” posts will serve as a reminder or a reflection that even though bad days or weeks occur, there were still a few little things to be happy about. These posts are probably more personal for me than it is for you guys, but maybe it’s something you could think about doing in the future too.
Here are a few favorites of the week!
Earlier this week I listened to an episode of The Ringer’s “The Rewatchables“. Bill Simmons & Shea Serrano discussed how great Fast Five is. You can listen here.
Jeremiah & I finished watching HBO’s “The Case Against Adnan Syed” this week. We watched it weekly since the documentary came out, but we both listened to Serial‘s podcast before we started watching it. It’s one of those interesting unsolvable cases & I thought that the documentary brought out more points & different insight than the podcast originally did in 2014.
I love seeing my friends grow & glow! It’s tough for small businesses, accounts, & artists in general try to get their work out there. As an artist, I definitely know the struggle. It’s so competitive these days, so I want to do these every now & then to showcase & support small businesses, accounts, & artists I come across whose work I really enjoy.
The first feature is a friend of mine! She just created her accounts recently to show all her work. She makes all kinds of desserts & cakes for special occasions 🎂 🍰 🧁

Look at this cake she recently made!
The Joker movie trailer dropped this week & prior to the trailer, I was 100% skeptical about it. When I first heard they were making a Joker movie, I automatically thought it wasn’t going to be any good, but this trailer kind of makes me think otherwise? It actually looks like it could be pretty great & Jeremiah & I discussed the perfect song choice for the trailer. Joaquin Phoenix is also an amazing actor, so I kind of have some hope.
Check out the trailer below:
