Hello, friend. Is it Monday again already? I hope the weekend treated you well.
I spent much of it cleaning the house from top to bottom, which–though probably not as fun as whatever you did–always feels good to complete. There will need to be some How To Adult cleaning posts in the future. I’ve learned a lot about what not to do.
In case you missed it, American currency is officially getting a major redesign. Pretty awesome that Harriet Tubman will be on the $20 (though not everyone was thrilled). It’s interesting to see how bills have evolved over time.
This week we found out that nearly half of Americans could not come up with $400 for a personal emergency if they had to. There’s some serious work to be done to help the middle class.
In more uplifting news, this week also gave us this video of 7 girls on appreciating culture rather than appropriating it.
Season 2 of Chef’s Table is almost here! Season 1 was so good.
We need to get serious about soda.
Solar-powered planes aren’t practical for commercial flight yet, but they’re its green future.
Similarly, we whiffed on electric cars in the past, but hopefully we can get it right this time.
Have a great week!
