Friday Things

It’s Friday! It’s Labor Day Weekend! After the month I’ve had, I fully intend to do little more than sit on the beach and read the entire weekend.

Here are three things that made my week:

1. I knew very little about Patti Smith until I read her memoir. It absolutely blew me away. Besides introducing me to her and her work, as well as that of Mapplethorpe, it reignited my interest in non-fiction. Everything she says is so honest and so real, not the least of which is this.

2. Been thinking a lot about this platform lately; if you’re a fellow blogger, this article is extremely helpful.

3. This Tumblr had me laughing SO HARD.

Reading: I’m not done with this yet. I can’t remember the last time it’s taken me over a month to finish a book. But I can’t read it at night, or this happens (side note: how talented is my friend?) With the stress of the move, I needed an unstressful nighttime book, so I embarked on a reread of this, which I just love so, so much.

Watching: One of my favorite things to do is perform household chores while rewatching a favorite TV series (and drinking some nice vino). So I’ve been unpacking in the new apartment while doing an Angel rewatch. It’s so much fun, and I’m actually glad I’m not done yet.

Listening to: Nothing new. I could use some suggestions if you have any!
