Most Entertaining Thing I’ve Watched All Day


There are no words. How these students are keeping a straight face through this entire thing is just beyond me. One teacher parodies Top 40 songs to introduce new rules and guidelines in her class and the video has gone viral.

Another Post About The Stranger Things Cast

I’m actually obsessed with this cast and can’t get enough of all of their appearances. Meanwhile, I’m still stuck on getting to Episode 4… someday, we’ll get there.

Stranger Things Cast Visit Jimmy Fallon

First the cast talks about Millie and Finn’s kiss on Stranger Things. Man… I haven’t even gotten this far yet.

Then the cast plays a game of “Stranger Strings” where they read off facts one-by-one and spray the person they think wrote it. During this, we learn that Millie can rap and she’s a BO$$.

I would adopt that Gaten kid. He is too much.

Instagram Adds Zoom

Screen Shot 2016-09-01 at 9.43.30 PM

I remember when I first used Instagram, I always used to wonder why you couldn’t zoom in on the photos. You could do it on Facebook… and Facebook owned Instagram so… what’s up with that? Over time, I sort of just forgot about it and accepted the fact that zooming in on photos was just something that I was never going to be able to do on Instagram. Luckily for us though, the developers didn’t forget that it was a pain point for some users so that when they actually created the feature, users like me, would realize once again just how much we needed/wanted it.

I’ve used it a couple of times now within the last few days and while it’s nice to know that I have the option, it hasn’t made that much of a difference for me! Readers, what do we think? Is it really that big of a deal?

Nick Viall is the Next Bachelor

Screen Shot 2016-08-30 at 10.00.48 PM

WOW. We didn’t see that one coming! ABC is really stepping up their game to deliver on the surprises. Here’s why this is so unexpected:

  • This guy has been on TWO seasons of The Bachelorette. He was the runner-up on both of them and currently he’s on Bachelors in Paradise (a place for the rejects to find love on the spinoff series) I mean… hasn’t this guy had enough chances?
  • Uh… totally thought it was going to be Luke. What happened there?
  • Nick is currently seeing Jen on Bachelors in Paradise (I realize this isn’t in real time) but they seem pretty happy and moving in a positive direction.

It clearly didn’t work out with Jen and Nick, but geez – what a spoiler announcing that he’s the next Bachelor now when there’s still a season finale to watch next week! I was actually rooting for the Jen and Nick thing so I’m somewhat disappointed that that didn’t last. We’ll have to move on from that so here are the questions I want answered in watching Nick be The Bachelor next season.

  • WILL Nick finally find love? Dear god, please say yes.
  • Will we find out how Nick continues to make women on the show feel so desirable?
  • Will I ever stop looking at Nick like he’s the long lost brother of Spencer Pratt?

Serious questions here, y’all. Also, do you remember when we all hated him for two seasons? It’s like the producers of this franchise have been planning this all along by turning him into the good guy on Bachelors in Paradise and essentially setting him up for success to be the next Bachelor. Nice work!

When Brands Clap Back

14102151_1114377031933318_4124454901990305509_n

Looks to be a complaint from a customer – and here’s the company’s response to it that they posted along with this photo:

Dear Rupert,

One sweater does cost us $57 to make; but that’s not the ridiculous part. The ridiculous part is that other brands have a similar cost but mark their prices up so much more. Maybe they need the brain scans.

Know your costs,
Everlane
#DearEverlane

Typically when a customer is upset with a brand or a company, the company usually has to respond with something v. PC and safe. I experience this all the time and I’m usually never satisfied with it. And when I say all the time, I mean I literally just got off the phone with a Comcast rep. Enough said. I actually have to applaud Everlane for this though because not only is it somewhat entertaining to see a brand/company clap back, but Hey! they’re doing the opposite of what everyone else says you have to do. This is great.

“Single By 30”

Every time I finish my work day (I made my cut off time 9:00 PM tonight) I always think that I’m going to have the same amount of energy to put towards Yow Yow! and to be able to find material and be able to whip something up in time to post by the end of the night. For some reason, it was really easy when we were in school and we would do like 8 posts every night, but it’s so much harder as an adult!

Tonight, we’re keeping things pretty casual with a new series by Wong Fu Productions. I had read a preview about this earlier in the week – the story centers around two main characters – Kina Grannis and Harry Shum Jr. who are friends from high school. One night, way back when, they make a pact that if they are still single by the time they are 30, that they’ll just marry each other. Well… flash forward years later – they are 30! I’m not going to spoil it for you so you’ll just have to see what happens next. I think this is airing on YouTube Red though which means… it might cost some $$$, but the first episode which we’re showing here is free! If you like it, maybe you’ll continue on with the series. I mean, I definitely want to know what happens next!

Kids Giving Advice on How to Break Up With Someone

This is a really good note to end on tonight. :)

Nike Unlimited

Believe it or not, there was definitely a time when I was growing up and not sure what I wanted to do after graduating, but just knew that I wanted to be creative. I thought I was going to turn to the advertising world! I remember still applying for these positions not even sure if I had the skills or knowing if I was qualified enough, but still gettin’ after it anyways because what did a college graduate have to lose? Well, we never landed there, but that doesn’t mean that I’m still not fascinated by it. I really enjoyed watching these Nike Unlimited Ads. I think they’ve been out for awhile now, but the narration in them is pretty engaging. I walked away from these feeling kind of inspired!

Homesick Candles

I came across these last night and thought they were such a cute idea. As many of you know, the candle obsession in my home this year has been REAL real. I imagine that these would make really great gifts for any loved ones that have ventured off into their next city away from home. This Washington one is supposed to smell of hints of cherries, coffee, and rain – what else? To view the rest of the candles, click here.

Fish in Jellyfish

Can we just take a second to gawk at this?! This is a fish swimming inside of a jellyfish. There’s something that’s actually really strange about it, but the warm and fuzzy part of me is like “Awww!!” It wasn’t too long ago that we said we like to reserve some of our Sunday posts from something educational and while that is kind of true, I don’t want to limit it to that – I still want to just include things that I find really interesting and fascinating. However… as I’m writing this, I realize that I try and do this for everyday, but the reason why I’ve probably designated it to Sundays is because it is the day in which I have the most time to blog.

Anyways, this photograph was captured by photographer Tim Samuel while diving in Byron Bay.

Sideview, man.

PlantsOnPink

Screen Shot 2016-08-20 at 10.23.51 PM

I spend a lot of time on Instagram and now with Instagram stories, my engagement feels like it has tripled. Between going through my feed and going through stories, I also spend time looking for new accounts to follow or just randomly browsing. One account that I stumbled across today was Plants on Pink. Too often, I find myself liking photographs of plants and I’m not sure why, but my eyes are drawn even more when it’s up against a pink or coral wall. There’s something about it that I find really pleasing and lovely.

Would You Eat It?

This has my skepticism written all over it, however, I shouldn’t be one to judge. I like to think that I’m someone who is always willing to try something once before writing it off completely. Li’l Woody’s (a Seattle burger joint) and Cupcake Royale (a Seattle cupcake shop) are collaborating together on a new burger in which their cupcakes are being used as a bun and replacing what normally would be a bread. You may recall that I have tried something similar to this before in the past at San Francisco’s Straw in which my buns were donuts and I did NOT love it.

Seattle folks, would any of you try it? And if you do, can you let me know how it is?

Aging and Alone in Manhattan’s Chinatown

I had been hoarding this video/article in my tabs for exactly a month now and only this week was I able to finally watch it. After watching it, I asked myself a few questions, why did I keep it here for so long? Shouldn’t I have just watched it and either a) posted about it or b) moved on from it? The other option that also seems pretty likely is c) that I was scared of it. All I knew about it was the title and a screenshot of an elderly Asian woman walking through Chinatown – actually that same one above.

Growing up, my family and I went to Chinatown nearly every weekend in Seattle. To be politically correct, we call it the “International District” because it’s not just targeted towards Chinese people – it’s all Asian cultures. I remember when walking around wondering where their families were – where were their sons and daughters and grandchildren the way that my grandparents had me? Where did they live and did they have family gatherings the way we did? Today, I only have one Grandma left. I was recently told by someone at a funeral that I needed to get married soon so that she could be present at my wedding. Talk about the pressure! Well, if my Grandmother didn’t live 15 minutes away from my childhood home, could this woman in the video easily be her? Yes, probably. And it’s not the life that I would hope for her, but this is the reality for so many elderly people in International Districts all over the country. I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone because the woman’s story profiled in the video is worth watching. What I love about this video is that it gives me a sliver of the answers that I was always looking for, but I’m curious to know more. I want to dig deeper into the stories of those living in Chinatown and hustling every day like this woman. Maybe someday, we’ll be able to do that…

Just a warning, the video doesn’t have a happy ending, but DoobyBrain informed their readers that actually the woman is alive and still in Chinatown so hopefully that puts you at ease.

The video profile was created by Mantai Chow and you can watch it here.
