Like everyone else in the US, I can’t stop watching and talking about Cheer — the mini series on Netflix. It is a highly addictive 6 part series that follows around nationally ranked 40-member Navarro College Cheer Team as they prepare for the Nation Cheerleading Championship in Daytona. Five of the members lives are highlighted and you get insight into what makes them who they are — and you will fall in love with Jerry, as I did. You will laugh, cry, cringe, and binge watch the show. I guarantee you that if you start watching the show, you will finish it in a matter of days. I highly HIGHLY recommend it and can’t wait to discuss with fellow watchers.
Part Friday Night Lights (Tim Riggins, #33, I love you), and part Real World.
Cheerleading is a SPORT.
So much to watch.
JERRY!!!! on Ellen!!!!
Monica, the coach, who you love to hate and hate to love.
I wanted to mute it every time I watched them practice with all the THUDS and drops from the girls being thrown around.
To read more about the show, read here here here and here. Even Saturday Night Live featured it this past weekend with a spoof on it. God, I loved it so much! Highly recommend it — wish all TV shows were great like this one!
2020 here we are! And here is what I am currently loving this month!
1. Lovers in Auschwitz, Reunited 72 Years Later
I read this article over a month ago when it came out and yet I still think about it. It is extremely powerful and moving — an incredible story that is worth the long read. Gotta love a good ‘ol love story.
If you have an hour and a half of free time, I highly recommend watching the Tony Robbins documentary on Netflix. Urged by a good friend to watch it (exact words: “Urgent”), I watched it immediately and found it riveting, emotional, powerful, inspirational, and curious. A must see. If only more people could be as authentic, sincere, deep, and real.
My whole life, I have worn cheap and childish watches. Way back when, I had the Mickey Mouse watch that sang “It’s a small world after all.” From there, I graduated to a Timex watch with a rastafarian color themed velcro band. As an adult, I have worn a $60 plastic watch…. every…. single… day. Some might say it is time to move on to something nicer and more grown up , but I like the fact that all my watches are simple, cheap, and do their thing. Plus, I prefer inexpensive watches to “nice” ones as the nicer ones are too much of a status symbol, especially in places like New York. Heyyyyy, check out my GOLD ROLEX — if I can afford 30K on my wrist to tell the time, guess how rich I AM???? So, plastic watches are more my jam.
Black plastic chic. With the background of tie-dye pants — making my outfit THAT much more chic.
