10 Things That Made Me Happy This Week

Some of these won't apply to you, but #10 applies to us all as human beings.

10.) Nicolas Cage as Miley Cyrus in the "Wrecking Ball" video

Kim sent this to me and I have no idea what to make of it. I can't stand Miley Cyrus and wish she'd disappear. However... this. This. Jesus.

9.) The new Washed Out album, "Paracosm."

It's a gorgeous experience. I don't think I like it as much as "Within and Without," but I definitely am enjoying it. This is, in my opinion, the best track- "All I Know." It's like a less bombastic sequel to "Amor Fati."

Ernest Greene is such a talented guy. He makes music from a genuine place, and I appreciate that.

8.) I'm writing a lot again.

I'm almost done with a short story and I started this blog, which has been incredibly therapeutic  Every time I have written something, I have felt a lot calmer. Except the one entitled "Her." That one hurt. 

7.) Getting in back touch with old friends.

I've seen a lot of people I haven't seen in ages, and I've started talking to some people again who I really missed. I like getting back in touch with people. To realize they still care, it's incredibly sweet and affirming.

6.) "Portlandia."

When does this show start again?!?!?

5.) Fiona Apple on a Chipotle ad About Sustainable Farming

Okay: This also scurred me. 

4.) The Fact My Coworkers Care About Me

Seriously: I see these people everyday, and they genuinely do care. I have certainly not always been that fortunate.

3.) Working Out.

I only started, to be honest, because I was scared I let myself go. But, besides my more shallow reasons, I don't have any plans to stop because exercising does really make you feel better.

2.) This article.

It's worth a read. I was kind of bummed today until I took it into consideration.

1.) Guinea Pigs.

Having an animal (or animals) around is definitely a comfort, even if they do poop ... a lot.

I hope things are going well for you, anonymous Internet visitor.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

Appropriate Holiday Gift Ideas for the Single Lady

While some people may see it as a drag, there are plenty of benefits to being single during the holiday season. During this time of the year, there are tons of parties you can attend that you may not have had the opportunity to if you were in a relationship. There’s also not as much stress on you as a single gal during the holidays because you don’t have to shop for your partner and extended family members  or  stress over where to eat Christmas dinner.  Not everyone sees the bright side of being fancy free during the holidays, and, tragically, they aren't afraid to let us single ladies know. Not only are single women subjected to even more harassment and ridicule during the holiday season, they’re also given the most obnoxious gifts by those who can’t comprehend how anyone can be both happy and single. Whether it’s a self-help book (desperately) trying to reinforce how great is to be single or the gift of a year-long subscription to , single women are presented with

"High Tide, Storm Rising" - Skinshape

A new Skinshape LP is on the way as of October 28th! "Nostalgia" promises to delve into the world of motives and motifs. Will Dorey (AKA Skinshape) has described this particular track "High Tide, Storm Rising" as "the main theme song of a movie." And if you have read any of my prior posts, you know I'm a sucker for anything cinematic.  Here's a full look at the Skinshape "Nostalgia" track listing: 01. Theme For Lazarus 02. Better Chances 03. Dreams of Panama 04. Moonlight Walk  05. Albion 06. High Tide, Storm Rising 07. Turn Away 08. Bohanon's Cornucopia 09. Bad Dreams 10. Fish & Chips 11. Dawn I would try to include something about live shows, but the soulful likes of Skinahape simply prefer to record and NOT perform live, which is an interesting choice in today's world.  Once again, "Nostalgia" is out everywhere as of Oct. 28th.
