Another week has passed, and now it is time for another Five Things Friday! I’m so tired, you guys. Between work and draft revisions for the ATFS sequel I just really want to take a nap so I’m feeling extra grateful for the long weekend. Here are five things you can enjoy during yours!
You guys know I love Ask a Manager, and I think Alison Green gives great advice, but her “Ask the Readers” posts also tend to be treasure troves. There are a lot of great, non-judgmental comments here about how to increase one’s punctuality, which is something I know I could benefit from!
First of all, if you haven’t watched Salt Fat Acid Heat on Netflix, you really should. Whether you like to cook or not, Samin’s zest for life is contagious and the show is so beautifully shot that it’s worth a watch regardless. I really enjoyed this piece in the Guardian where she discusses her recent rise in popularity (and notoriety) and her history as a chef. She seems like such a delight, and she’s very much an inspiration to me.
3. Into the Spider-Verse
Into the Spider-Verse is so. good. The animation is stunning and worth seeing in the theater, and the story is compelling with great messages for kids and adults alike. I left the theater feeling so uplifted and optimistic, and I really can’t recommend it highly enough.
These photos are technically stunning as well as fascinating from a cultural perspective. I loved reading about the fables that the people of Mbomo have grown up with and shared through generations, and the lessons woven into them.
Here’s my result:
What was yours?
Wishing you a fantastic weekend from my home to yours! See you next week!
