I haven’t done one of these in a while, but I felt like I needed to because there is so much I’ve been loving lately and wanted to make sure you had a chance to check it out.
Attached: The New Science of Adult Attachment and How It Can Help
So as many of you know I have generalized anxiety. Because of this and other reasons I regularly go to therapy. My therapist recommended I read this book. Full disclosure a few months ago it was the deal of the day on Audible, I considered it but decided not to get it. To quote Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, “Big mistake. Huge.”
So I had to use a full credit for it but still worth it. This book really opened my eyes to the way I am in relationships and why things haven’t worked out in the past.
Proud Mary Taraji P Henson
So when I decided to write a new Things I Can’t Get Enough of it was because of Proud Mary, then I realized if I was being honest I just love Taraji P Henson. Between Baby Boy, Empire and her memoir, Round The Way Girl, I find myself interested in anything she is apart of. She is brilliant, funny, strong, talented and just an inspiration.
So I’m so late to the game on this. As a huge Krysten Ritter fan, I can’t tell you what took me so long to jump on the Jessica Jones wagon, but I finally started season 1 (yes 1, you read that correctly). It’s so good! If you haven’t watched it yet, check it out. Also, bonus if you’re late like me you have two full seasons. Original fans had to wait over a year for season 2 of the show.
Alexa and Katie
This show hit me like a ton of bricks. On Good Friday we got off of work early and the next thing I knew I was on my sofa and 3 hours in! I watched the whole first season in a day. Alexa is starting high school after a summer of fighting cancer. By her side is her next door neighbor and best friend, Katie. It gives you all the feels and is funny. Also, a bonus for all us 80s/90s kids Tiffani Amber Thiessen plays Alexa’s mom… yes, Kelly Kapowski! Great show to watch with the fam or by yourself as a 28-year-old who enjoys clean humor as much as she loves raunchy comedy.
It’s already been renewed!!!!
Zach Morris is Trash and A Very Special Episode
Shout out to my client Sarah at Adulting With ADHD for introducing me to this. The geniuses at Funny or Die dissect our favorite shows from the 80s/90s. In one web series, he explains why Zach Morris from Saved By The Bell wasn’t really the story’s hero, but it’s villain. Then in A Very Special Episode, he breaks down those “serious” episodes of our favorite light-hearted classics in a hilarious way. Here are my favorite episodes of each. Don’t take it too seriously it’s funny. Also any time, I’m feeling down these always make me laugh. ADULT LANGUAGE WARNING!!!
recently Audible’s Daily Deal (Can you tell I have an audible problem?) was Felicia Day’s book “You’re never weird on the internet” this lead me to her web show, The Guild. This show is so funny and awkward but awesome. I’m not a gamer. I do like the occasional Call of Duty session and am great at Bubble Mania but not a gamer, and I still enjoy this show. Bonus: The episodes are hella short, and you can probably finish a season on your lunch break.
The Last Black Unicorn
I’ve been a Tiffany Haddish fan since watching her on The Carmichael Show the past few years but over the past year she has taken her career to a whole new level and I’m happy for her. In her book The Last Black Unicorn she shares her life story and talks about everything from the wart she had on her head, not knowing how to read in high school and using a Groupon to tour New Orleans swamps with Will and Jada. It’s hilarious, motivating and entertaining from start to finish.
I could write an entire post about how amazing black panther was. I don’t go to the theaters often, but this was a movie I had to support. The entire cast was amazing…P.S. if you know Michael B. Jordan, give him my number I think we’d be happy together. I can’t even put into words what this film meant to me. If you haven’t seen it go do it now. Wakanda Forever!
So I’ve been a fan of Empire since season one, and when I heard about Lee Daniel’s Star, I knew I needed to add it to my DVR. I seriously enjoyed the first season, but the 2nd is even better. The music is amazing, and the characters are so complex. It’s always beautiful watching someone chase a dream.
Obviously, I’m a fan of audio entertainment so when I heard my friend Rachel was coming out with a podcast I was super excited. What makes it different? sometimes her husband Eric joins her behind the mic and that makes for some interesting banner. If you’re a young adult figuring your life out, this podcast is for you.
Check out my interview with Rachel, Embracing the Confusion on Creatives Crushing Anxiety here.
If you are one of the millions who would freak out if The Office got taken off of Netflix, then you need to watch Superstore. It’s basically The Office, minus the mockumentary style and the office setting. Instead of following coworkers around an office building you follow them around the superstore they work in call Cloud 9. This ensemble cast is lead by America Ferrera and is hilarious!
Reboots – Roseanne and Will And Grace
I know there has been a lot of crap about the Roseanne and Trump thing but, to be honest. It seems really realistic that that character would have voted for him. I remember watching it growing up, and they’ve done a great job staying true to the original series.
I didn’t watch Will and Grace until college. When I met the Will to my Grace, we proceeded to watch all ten seasons on DVD, and since then the show has always held a special place in my heart. So when it came back, I was ecstatic.
SPOILER ALERT: I was always curious because the original series ends with Will and Grace not talking for 18 years and then reconnecting when they take their kids to college. So I was curious how the show would come back, well they handled that quick by saying it never happened and just picking back up ten years after the series ended. It’s just as hilarious as ever.
For the People
I am a Shonda fan, and I love how this show is a mix of early Grey’s Anatomy meets How to Get Away With Murder. While it had a bumpy start, it got really interesting, and I already have favorite characters. What’s it about? Brand new baby lawyers are trying to get experience and make a name for themselves in the legal world.
It’s bittersweet to add this one to the list. Because since it premiered, it has been canceled by Netflix. Had this been a network show I might have hoped Netflix would have seen how amazing it was and opened its doors to it. This show was real and sad and funny, and all the things that being a young teenager are. R.I.P Everything Sucks. Your cancellation sucked.
So tell me have you watched/listened to/read any of the things mentioned above. What did you enjoy the past few months? Tell me in the comments.
