You’ve Seen the 80s Aerobics Video, Right?

This video makes me happy. It’s silly. It’s stupid. It shouldn’t be as entertaining as it is, but, dammit, I can’t watch it with a straight face. For your Feel-Good Friday, I present…

You could always watch the original, but the swapped music versions are better. There are some others with Taylor Swift, Fall Out Boy, and The Killers. Maybe more.

About two weeks ago I reviewed Jen Sincero’s You are a Badass (here), and before that, I posted one of her motivational videos (here). For your Feel Good Friday, here is Part Two of that video series to send you off into the weekend empowered.

Find Your Inner Badass

Perhaps your 2018 isn’t exactly shining as brightly as you’d hoped.

Perhaps you’re in a slump. Or directionless.

Perhaps this doesn’t apply to you at all, but you clicked here anyway. (Thanks!)

If you came here hoping to learn how to find your inner badass, my apologies. Because I don’t know. But Jen Sincero does, and I’m taking notes. You’ve probably heard of her book, You are a Badass. I’ve just started reading it, so this isn’t a book review. But so far, I’m wishing I’d read it a long time ago. She is super inspiring, and what she says is so relatable! I love her conversational tone and how she doesn’t have a holier than thou-ness about her like some self-help style books do. I’ll most likely do a full book review when I finish reading.

I’d like to take a moment and direct your attention to…well…me. Essentially. 

This is Mocha.

This is Mocha’s most liked photo to date.

For some unknown reason, which I am equal parts whatever and ashamed, I’ve created an Instagram account for my cat. While initially I thought I had finally full-on lost my mind, my life had no direction, and I was accepting cat lady status, I soon discovered plenty of cat accounts on Instagram. It’s a friendly community, full of like-minded cat obsessed people. The best kind of people.

And you know what? Life is too short not to have an Instagram account for your cat. Come on.

Put a Little Ze in Your Day

First of all, I apologize for the lame title. It’s really lame, isn’t it.

Now, maybe you can relate to this, but do you ever like something, like really like something, and you binge on it? Then, something happens and you either forget about it, or move on, or find something else that replaces it? Well, my God. I forgot how awesome Ze Frank is. Shame on me, I know.

I found one of his videos that I hadn’t seen–hooray! And I wanted to post it, because, as usual, the man is a freaking genius. While I don’t believe in fate, at all, I think I was meant to find this today. I’m calling it a happy accident.

Writing Wednesday (WW) #1: Sophie Kinsella

Happy Wednesday! I’m sticking with this alliterative-days-blog-thing. I thrive on a schedule. Anyways…

I’m currently reading My Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella. (Yes, I’m STILL trying to get through 1984. Lord, help me.) Sophie Kinsella is one of my favorite authors, and she writes the books I always saw myself writing. We have a similar style, which I feel odd saying. I mean, she’s a best selling author. And I’m…well, I’m typing a blog post no one will read.

But I digress.
