My Week in Review, June 10

I hope everyone had a great week! I felt like I got a lot done and even managed to be social. I’ve become one of those people who juggles play dates. Like multiple ones. Who am I?

It’s graduation weekend here, and it has me feeling really nostalgic and missing my job and former students. *tear* I’m raising a glass to you all! Cheers and congratulations to the class of 2016!

What I drank: We finally broke out one of these beauties. Been saving it for a while!

What I Ate:


  • Last Week Tonight: John Oliver forgives 14 million bucks in medical debt! Take that, Oprah. Watch on HBO or here’s the whole clip via YouTube.

  • UnReal: Quinn and Rachel are back. Watch it on Lifetime.
  • The Americans: OMG the finale. This was a really interesting season! Keri Russell is amazing, truly, and I don’t know why she’s never been nominated for anything. Actually, this show is really better than most of the shows getting nominated for stuff. Take that. It’s on FX, but the season just ended so find it on Amazon Prime.
  • The History Chicks: Thanks to Mouth Half Full’s Cassie for the podcast rec last week. I’ve already listened to Madam C.J. Walker, Dorothy Parker Pt 1 & Pt 2, and Josephine Baker Pt 1.

From the Internet: [Note that before the last two links there is a trigger warning.]

  1. What a great week in review! I just watched the John Oliver thing! And I’m so glad to know UnReal is back!! I binged on that a few weeks ago! Loved it!

    Thank you for including my piece, as well! Hope you have a fabulous week!

      Thanks so much! I really did appreciate your piece. I feel like not everyone would be so bold to stray from their “message” but you had something really valuable to add to the conversation from a unique perspective.

  2. I’m so glad that you’re enjoying The History Chicks! Definitely my favourite podcast out there. 🙂

      I need to look for some others too for variety!

      I just listened to the History Chicks’ Jane Austen episode and the book casts and it inspired me to download Lady Susan. It’s one of the only Austen works I haven’t read!
