Hi Jenna,

may your day be so good, it goes by in a blink.


"It'll turn out all right in the end. You'll see." - Angela Lansbury as Mrs. Potts in Beauty and the Beast

Here you may find a poem by yours truly, words of wisdom from someone wiser, meaningful lyrics by a beloved musician, or a relevant piece of reading material. No matter what, it will be whimsical in its own way and garnished with a GIF!

Yesterday I turned another year older (shout out to my fellow Libras), and stumbled upon this beautiful poem called aging by Rupi Kaur. For everyone that's celebrating a birthday this year (that's you!), wave your hands in the air and consume these words like you just don't care:

i often daydream about the woman i'll be

when i leave the rush of

my insecure twenties

and pick up self-assurance on the way

i can't wait to make

my eighteen-year-old self jealous

of the hell i raise

roaring into my thirties and forties

my soul becoming

more potent with age

at fifty i'll sit with

my wrinkles and silver hair

laughing about the adventures

we've had together

talking about the countless more

in the decades ahead

what a privilege it is

to grow into the

finest version of myself

As someone who always wants to take the shortest and simplest route to chow town, most cooking shows are out of my league. But, Antoni's cooking competition, Easy Bake Battle, just premiered on Netflix this week and it's quite delectable! Average home cooks serve up helpful kitchen hacks and exquisite eats all in one sitting, with commentary that's *chef's kiss*.


The POTUS recently issued pardons for federal marijuana possession charges. This is long overdue for the racial disparities surrounding these charges alone, but also simply because, as the article states: "any remaining hand-wringing over pot as a threat to civilized society is both unscientific and frankly, kind of dumb." (File that under new favorite quotes.) But, we still have a long way to go. Here is everything the marijuana pardon does and doesn't do.
