It has become the norm that I find myself doing an endless list of chores and errands on the weekends now. What is it even like to be outdoors for a long period of time and be social? I don’t know anymore! Luckily for us, there are a few things to keep us busy. I’ve found a way to have things to look forward to even in this pandemic election time mess.
What We’re Watching: PEN15 Season 2
A new season of PEN15 has arrived on Hulu! Never have I ever felt so uncomfortable and awkward watching a series, but have also found such joy. PEN15 is so cringe because it reminds us of the strange pre-teen/teenage years we all thought we left behind. Having it resurface is a bit of a trigger, but the two leads (and writers!) of the show, Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle do a phenomenal job of depicting this. It has been some time in between seasons so I’m hoping I can savor it as opposed to watching it all in one weekend.
What We’re Listening To: Dynamite (NightTime version) by BTS
We’re now listening to “Dynamite” on a daily basis, but because they’ve remixed this single so many times, I can listen to about eight different versions of it. Every day could be a different remix. I’ve never heard of a nighttime remix before, but the versions on this (there are 5!) are much more laid back and chill than the original versions or even the daytime remix. Pick the one that reflects your mood!
What We’re Wearing: [Zella Girl Supersoft Side Tie Hoodie] – $39
I bought this from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale on discount and even though I’ve had this for a month, it’s the first time I’m wearing it today! We’re not spending much time out today, but it’s the perfect cozy piece for home, lounging around, or over your activewear. Even if times were normal, I would wear this out to a brunch or daily errands.
What We’re Eating: Dim Sum
One of my favorite weekend traditions growing up was going out for dim sum with my family. With everything going on, I can’t remember having it since even before the pandemic. Luckily, we’re picking up all of my favorites today to go. It may not be exactly the same experience, but we’ll take it! Here’s hoping that everything returns to normal soon so that we can continue moving forward with all of the things we want to do in a safe and healthy way.
