What’s everyone up to this week? Have you clocked the Oscar Nominations yet? I always set out to watch as many of the films as I can before the awards show…but I’m not always that successful. Wouldn’t it be fun to start an Oscar Noms club where you meet up with a group of friends to watch and discuss (a la book club style)? Hmmm…the wheels are turning! Hope you have a great rest of your week, and here are some links to read and watch…

Oh wow this was interesting. So many things happening in the world!
I would hate to have a really long commute. I drove about half an hour to my last job and it was on a very busy stretch of I-95. I hated it. When we lived in California my boss drove 2 hours each way to work because it was so expensive to buy a house where we were. I was like, dude find a new job closer to home! Who wants to spend 4 hours of their day in their car, frustrated, never seeing your kids?
That’s literally my worst nightmare, lol. I think I could do a moderate commute on public transit (reading and podcast time!!) but car-wise anything more than 20 minutes and I’m like NOPE. So many people we know in Miami drive 1hr+ to work and I basically just think they’re insane. 😉
I am just like you Beth. I always set out to watch so many movies before the awards show. We definitely need some club or something like that? Which movie is your fave by now?
Not big on movies but I’m looking forward to watching the Shape of Water!! Hearing a lot about it. Have you seen it?
Not yet but it’s on my list!!
