It’s Thursday… already?! Not that I’m complaining (bring on the weekend), but I blinked and this entire week flew by. But I must admit, it’s been a pretty crazy one between work, and starting back up with classes (this is the last one I have for my graduate certificate program)! Plus, I was planning for a low-key weekend last weekend and ended up doing a lot of cleaning + furniture rearranging and spent a day at Disney, so I can’t wait for the weekend where no alarms are to be set!
I moved extremely quickly through my binge-watching of Gilmore Girls and finished all 7 seasons a few days ago. It’s been in my Netflix queue for a while but I figured with the sequel series coming out later this year I should probably watch them all in order since I’d just seen random episodes over the years. I hate how open-ended the series was considering after all the time invested I needed some closure, but I’m happy that we’ll find out what’s going on in the lives of the Gilmore girls soon! Oh, and if you’re wondering, I’m Team Jess! How about you?
Zetus-Lapedus! Is “Zoom/Supernova Girl” stuck in your head now? Yesterday news broke out that there’s a potentially Earth-like planet just outside of our solar system. Plans are being discussed to send some technology out there to scope things out, but it’s kind of crazy to think that there might be other life outside of Earth – or even our solar system!
I did a crazy thing a few weeks ago and woke up at the crack of dawn and got into the queue for tickets to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – the play in London. While spots were “randomly assigned” I somehow managed to snag spot ~4800, while I watched the number of the people behind me quickly shoot up to hundreds of thousands. INSANE. But luck was on my side because I managed to snag tickets! So, SURPRISE! Looks like I’ll be planning a trip back to London at the end of next year! While I haven’t thought any of that detail through yet (although I’m already starting to think about the bigger trip), I’m super excited that this is on the horizon. After all, London is my favorite place in the world and as you know, I love all things Harry Potter!
Have you heard about the insane price increase for EpiPens? Apparently in 2009 they cost $100 and now the price is $600! This isn’t the first pharmaceutical company to do a steep increase over the years, but on the surface it seems incredibly greedy for them to hike the price up so high for something that could could be a life/death situation for someone. The issue has already made its way to Congress and I have a feeling addressing this is something they’ll actually be able to agree on.
Did you know Britney Spears is releasing a new album on Friday?! This will be album #9 for her since she started her career in the 90s. I’ve only listened to snippets of a few songs on Glory but it seems like there will be several different musical styles used – I hope there are some good ones on there! Also in Britney Spears news, Lifetime confirmed that they’re producing a 2-hour biopic, Britney, to premiere next year. And yes, her split with Justin is one of her life events in the plot line.
