These things No. 3

Okay, quick turn around here, because there is far too much going on in the media right now, and also because a recap on the Oscars is so timely.

As a side note, I have also changed the title of this series to simply, 'these things' because, admittedly, I do not necessarily love what is unveiled when you click on each of these links (esp. No. 2 here).

  1. Moonlight, after a short kerfuffle, won Best Picture last night.
  2.  I am incredibly disappointed in the anti-abortion dialogue that continues to go on in the U.S. I genuinely cannot believe that Sen. Charles Schwertner slammed his gavel on the table so hard to interrupt a young woman speaking out against anti-abortion that he broke a glass table. 
  3. Last night's episode of Girls was intense, but beautifully done, and incredibly relatable. What are your thoughts? 
  4. Anyone who knows me knows I am a fan of Instagram, especially because it captures moments around the world like these from 2016.
  5. While the Oscars is so, SO exciting, just some perspective on what else is going on in the world right now: In Mumbai slums,  seven people have died in a span of three months due to poorly constructed toilets. However, people are resilient.
  6. More perspective.
  7. Also, if you are not aware of the Black Dog, check this out.
  8. And, for some good feelings, make sure to check out this and this.
