Weekend Things - Issue 1
You’re going to be the most popping person in your zoom meeting on Monday.
Hello, hi there, and welcome to the weekend edition of And Other Things. Recommendations of what to do, read, watch, and listen to so you can say you did more than just change your underwear this weekend.
You wanna know what breaks my boobs out into a cold sweat? When someone asks me, “What did you do this weekend?”. So if you’re like me and you hate that boob sweat inducing question, I present you with a bunch of stuff to make your weekend fresher than a Whole Foods fruit cup (read: If you know, you know).
Let’s Be Brief
—> Good News <—
You can start training your binge watching muscles now because Squid Game season 2 is confirmed!
—> Great News <—
Don’t get defensive the next time a herbal tea drinker calls you cheap energy storage for drinking caffeine. It’s actually considered a complement in some circles.
The guy you’re on a date with says he listens to the Joe Rogan podcast before the appetizer arrives. Go to the bathroom and never come back, or…
WATCH - “Harlem” on Prime
As a black woman and an O.G Sex and The City fan, I always felt like something was missing from the show. It was black people. Black people were missing. I recommend skipping the SAC reboot (read: that honestly sounds like a disaster) and watch this instead.
READ - “How To Do Nothing: Resisting The Attention Economy” by Jenny Odell
Did you know you’re allowed to just exist? Yeah, me neither. It seems like everyone is obsessed with the need to always be doing something because not being productive or in the loop is apparently worse than having super noticeable camel toe. Odell’s book explores the possibilities of what we could accomplish if we turned our attention inward.
LISTEN - The “Headline Snooze” Podcast
I know it may be tempting to completely trash your sleep schedule when the weekend hits, but you should definitely try to catch a couple of snoozes before Monday. If you have trouble, I suggest this podcast from TikTok’s Under The Desk News reporter, V. Listening to people ramble about nothing always puts me right to sleep. Must be why I can never stay awake during team huddles at work.
That Sounds Like The Weekend
