I don’t know if it’s just me, but May has felt incredibly long. It’s felt like real summer here this week – in the mid 80s, which has been beautiful – but normally, summer would mean lots of eating outdoors and restaurants and hanging out with friends on rooftops, which obviously isn’t happening this summer. So it’s just a bit of a strange feeling.
On to the favorites for this week!
I know that some things are starting to open up, but I still think this is a good resource for deciding if/when to shop. I have definitely been making purchases, but I’ve tried to be mindful, and tried to mostly focus on small businesses.
I am really looking forward to watching this rendition of the Babysitters Club this summer! I always wanted to be as fashionable as Claudia, and she’s probably the original inspiration for all the black clothes in my closet.
I mentioned that I’ve been sending more handwritten notes recently, and decided that I wanted to step up my pen game, too. This fountain pen makes me feel so fancy and sophisticated whenever I use it!
This is a(nother) great video from Molly Burke, and I am totally with her. Disabled isn’t a bad word – it’s totally okay to use it – and I much prefer it to “differently abled.”
This is a super cool article about how Marvel worked to make their Avengers video game have disabled representation! This is so incredible, and something that I do not see often, either (though admittedly, I am not a big gamer).
