5 Things Thursday

Hello people. How goes it?

So it’s nearing the end of Thursday and just now I’ve decided to sit down and write this post. I’ve been busy but not really. But I do want to make this a priority … so I write.

Here are 5 things going on with me (or in the world in general):

1  STUPID HOT BUT NOT SO MUCH ANYMORE - Last week was a crazy week of stupid hot weather in Los Angeles. Like stupid hot. The hot that makes you want to die. That’s a little much. It’s the kind that makes you wonder why you ever moved to LA.

Living on the westside is awesome but we don’t have AC. And the fact that I work from home … it was pretty much miserable all last week. But all is OK now. The weather has fixed itself. Praise God.

2  GAZELLE INTENSE - If you’re a fan of Dave Ramsey, then you know what I’m referring to. Lately, I’ve kicked it up a gear with the Gazelle Intensity. Envelope system, eating at home, saying “no” to a lot of things just because, and selling things.

The thing is … I started selling some of my coffee mugs on eBay (because I have way too many) and they’re actually going for a lot more than what I purchased them for! It’s crazy. Who knew people would pay so much for Starbucks City Mugs?  

(I’m going to keep my favs, but half of these are spoken for)

3  “YOU MADE IT WEIRD - I’ve been listening the crap out of the Pete Holmes podcast lately. I peeked onto it recently because Jesse Carey interviewed him for the RELEVANT Podcast. And it seemed interesting, so I downloaded a few episodes. Basically they’re interviews of various comedians and actors and they cover comedy, sex (relationships), and God.

So crazy weird hearing the interviews of some very famous people who just speak candidly on these things. Aziz Ansari, Jon Hamm, John Mulaney, Adam Pally, Ben Schwarz are just a few of the interviews that I listened to. Oh, and Rob Bell. Weird.  

Although a lot of it was super interesting - hearing about where they come from and how they got into the industry - a lot of it is sort of mind blowing but a little bit sad too. Because they need the gospel so bad. Sigh. 

And who do they bring in for that?! Rob Bell. Ugh. I was mostly frustrated when I listened to that episode.

My advice, skip that one and listen to the Aziz Ansari one. I really enjoyed that one. That dude is hilarious and sort of wise! In a down-to-earth kind of way. 

4  X-MEN COMES OUT THIS WEEKEND - And I’m excited. This may be one of the many ways I nerd out. I don’t know why. I just really like the X-Men movies. But worlds are colliding on this one. Both the new and original cast are going to be in the same movie because … dun dun dun - they go back in time! 

Minds blown. It’s going to be epic.

5  SPEAKING OF GOING BACK IN TIME - I’m watching the classic trilogy for the nth time just because. Well, it’s the best movie ever.

And well, I found this recently and now I share it with you.
