I’m not usually someone who likes to go to “events” on weeknights. I know, I sound so old saying that, but after school/work I’m usually pretty exhausted by the end of the day. This week, though, I broke my rule and went to see Hugh Jackman. I didn’t exactly know what to expect, but it was a really fun show. He did a mix of his songs from The Greatest Showman, plus some other musicals and medleys of other classic songs. Keala Settle, who played the Bearded Lady in The Greatest Showman, made an appearance to sing “This is Me” and one of her own original songs. She was INCREDIBLE! I definitely made the right decision in breaking my rule and going to the show.
Before I share my favorites this week, I have one more thing that I want to mention. On Wednesday, November 13, I’ll be sharing “the story behind my story” for the article about accessibility I wrote for Public Source, along with other storytellers. If you’re interested in coming, you can buy tickets here. It should be a great night!
Now, onto my favorites.
ONE – MacOS Updates
I have to make sure to back up my computer before I install the newest MacOS update, but I think they have some really great changes lined up. Not only are they implementing MAJOR accessibility updates, but they’re also giving you the ability to use your iPad as a second computer screen. Really looking forward to trying out these features.
TWO – Sinéad Burke
I love this article that Teen Vogue has on Sinéad Burke. She’s an incredible activist for broadening diversity in fashion, and is really compelling when she talks about the constant need to validate her own existence. I can definitely relate!
THREE – This Beautiful Office
I love when things are neat and organized, even if I sometimes get overwhelmed in my attempt to make things that way myself. Look at how beautiful this office is!!
FOUR – Dog Perks
I certainly don’t need to be convinced that there are benefits to having a dog, but I still love hearing it. Apparently, the evidence is clearly in my favor.
FIVE – Prince Harry and Ed Sheeran
Such an important video about the importance of mental health! We’re really biased towards the importance of physical health, and even when we consider mental health we often don’t think about it holistically. Mental and physical health are both importance, and really tied up in each other. I’m glad two huge names joined together to talk about its importance!
