Weekly Recap

This week was really fun for me. I went to some post-season baseball games (something I had never done before and may never get to do again), got a haircut which always feels so good, and joined some sweet blogging networks which makes everything much more fun. Here's what I found interesting this week:

72 New Emojis // I love emojis! They're so cute and can be the perfect substitute for words sometimes. Personal favorites of mine include the eye rolling emoji, side eye emoji, and the blonde flip hair emoji. Love. Them. I'm so excited for the new emojis to come out! Personally, I can't wait for the avocado, the face palm and the shrug.

Lin-Manuel Miranda's Sonnet // I've been a big fan of Lin-Manuel Miranda's work for quite some time now. I saw In The Heights back in the day when it was on Broadway and I'm still obsessed with it! Hamilton is, of course, amazing too. Instead of an acceptance speech for one of his many Tony Awards, he read a sonnet. "And love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love." Perfect.

17 Pasta Recipes for When You're Trying to be Healthy // I love pasta. I love carbs. Ever since I've been trying to eat healthier I literally dream about carbs. Zoodles are fun and trendy but they just don't fill me up and they will never (read: NEVER) replace actual noodles. EVER.

O.J.: Made in America // I started watching this series last night and it's really good! I always enjoy 30 for 30 stories, and this was no exception. The documentary crew does a really, really good job of telling this story.

Chris Singleton // Last year, when the shooting in Charleston happened, I couldn't believe it. It was so close to home. I was abroad, but Charleston was consuming my entire heart. Chris Singleton was the first family member of a victim to offer his forgiveness. It's incredible, even I haven't done that just yet. This is a really, really long Sports Illustrated article but it is so well written and worth it. But if you don't have time, the video at the top is amazing too.


  1. So excited about the new emojis!
