Five Things Friday (#48)

We’ve made it to yet another Friday. As my friend Brenna so eloquently put it earlier today: “then I have to go through NEXT WEEK and the WEEK AFTER like @ time bruh wtf.” It’s a mood. But, since we can’t avoid the constant racing of time, let’s talk about things we like!

1. This artist’s illustration of what to do if you’re witnessing hate speech or harassment.

This has been floating around the internet for a couple of years, but considering the recent attack in New Zealand, it feels important to share again. Silence is complicity. Be proactive in making the world a less welcoming place to people looking to spread hate and division. Also, please be sure to support the artist who created this much-shared piece of work.

2. Vsocks on Etsy

These self-proclaimed “unpractical ceramics” are hygge as heck. I need to get my hands on that cactus mug IMMEDIATELY.

3. The Gyllenhaal Experiment

The Gyllenhaal Experiment is where a spelling test that meets data collection and creates some beautiful infographics about what names people have trouble spelling and exactly how they’re screwing up. Try it! It’s beautiful!

4. Sleepy shower gel from Lush

It’s no secret that I adore Lush products, along with every other basic white girl in America. But Marshall just bought me this shower gel and I am in. love. The smell is divine and it really is so relaxing. It left my skin nice and soft with no residue and listen, I know nothing about skincare, but I like it and recommend it.

5. The Regrettes covering Don’t Stop Me Now

A) How great is that cover art?
B) I’m obsessed with the Regrettes
C) They sound like they’re having such a good time!!!!
D) My 4-y/o cousin loves Queen and this song in particular, and his aunt told him that the lyrics are “I’m a fax machine ready to reload” and if that ain’t the best thing you’ve heard all day then I don’t know what to tell you.

I hope you all have good, safe weekends. Talk to you next week!

I am a Ventura, California native with a compulsion to create. I'm a storyteller, through writing, photography, and occasionally music. Weekends are for camping with my husband, reading, and hunting for vintage treasures, which I sell in my Etsy shop, Peace & Goodwill. My favorite things include lavender lattes, swimming in the ocean, true crime podcasts, The X-Files, and Peaky Blinders. I hope to become a full-time writer, bestselling novelist, and a continually improving reflection of God's grace. Proverbs 16:24

  1. Yes to #1… that’s helpful. Also, yes to #4… I love Lush. American Cream Conditioner is my favorite. To me, the smell is everything good in the world, and who doesn’t need some of that right about now?
