Another week behind us, and another weekend upon us. In my area, it’s gonna be hideously cold outside, and I can already feel the freezing cold through the drafty windows. I really hope I don’t have to be out in it, and I hope the same for you readers. If you do, bundle up and stay safe! I know that’s what I’ll be doing if this is how it turns out for me.
This weekend, the main game plan for me is to stay in and work on this blog and stuff for my day job. I also wanna get some more writing for myself done, too. Work’s hit a lull at this moment, but should hopefully pick back up later today. What are your weekend plans? Drop ’em like they’re hot below, along with any thoughts you have about the links below. Share ’em with your friends, talk about ’em below, what have ya.
Love this article about the girl who wrote the poem for Inauguration Day. I look forward to seeing what she’s coming up with next!
What an informative article about how athletic departments at HBCUs don’t always have access to the resources other schools do. Like Deion Sanders (oh, there’s a name I remember hearing all the time as a kid!) said, it’s not a level playing field, and it’s unacceptable. Hopefully this will be the year this starts to change for the better. Lack of resources should never be a barrier to pursuing one’s dreams, imo.
This cranberry chutney would be great as a sandwich or lettuce wrap spread, and so would this variation of it. For an instant version, adding the spices listed to some whole cranberry sauce works too. Tried that with a barely-eaten can of the stuff since a family member decided they didn’t like it and wanted that barfy jelly crap instead. Fine. Works like a charm, and saves more for moi.
These bags are so cool. Best part is they ship across the pond, so I hope to be able to get one of these sometime!
Speaking of which, this indie makeup brand’s sold out of their Brown Bombshell shade. When it comes back in stock, I hope to pick up a tube of it.
In other news, this giant sea slug’s making headlines. It’s so fascinating, and at the same time, it’s kinda giving me the willies, haha.
Great story about an artist who found value in e-waste. I love the part about how he found purpose in his art, and also found a way to continue giving back to the community he visited in Ghana.
