What a week! I got back from Jackson Hole on Monday and hit the ground running getting back on track. I forgot to include this matching photo with my mom. She went to Jackson Hole in 1972 with the Girl Scouts. My parents and my aunt and uncle traveled to Jackson Hole last fall and she recreated the photo again. I had to do the same!
Here’s what was on my radar this week:
I thought this was such a great story about a man who has written or edited a third of what’s on Wikipedia. If you haven’t had the chance to hear the How I Built This podcast about Jimmy Wales, definitely give it a listen too. It made me appreciate Wikipedia so much more and I loved watching the story about Steven Pruitt and his absolutely incredible contributions!!
THREE // Baby-Sitter’s Club Reboot
I LOVE THE BABY-SITTER’S CLUB. Love it. I had every single one of the books, including the Little Sister books, and we had every VHS of the tv show. I loved the 1995 movie as well. I’m pretty sure I was signed up for a Scholastic book fair club where they’d send a monthly “subscription” of Baby-Sitter’s Club memorabilia. (OH MY GOD, I just googled it and they still sell the tin that I received with the first subscription!!! I think I still have it somewhere…) Anyway……. Netflix is doing a reboot of the series and I am here for it.
To be honest, I wasn’t into the Jonas Brothers when they were first popular. (I think I was too old for it so I missed that boat.) But I gotta say, I’m loving their return. And I’m especially loving their media blitz. Their appearance with James Cordon was spot on.
FIVE // Meditation Streaks
Andy (from Headspace, the meditation app that I use religiously) wrote a great post about the app’s “streak” feature. If you’re unfamiliar, it basically shows you how many days you’ve meditated in a row. I’m well over 700 days at this point and I find that it really helps me stick to the daily practice. But I can understand why it might stress someone else out. His post was amazing and exactly what I think we should all be thinking about across the board in life. Basically: if it works for you, great. If it doesn’t, no worries. AMEN.
