mid-week round-up

What are you up to this week? Are you experiencing cold weather? We woke up to snow yesterday morning. SNOW! Quite the sight here in Alabama. I’m all too happy to bust out our faux fire place, fleece blankets, and soup ingredients. Hope you’re having a warm & cozy evening wherever you are, and now here are some links to hunker down and read…

Ummm…*tearjerker alert*.

This cold snap means PASS THE SOUP!

Recent episodes of Survivor have tackled race and gender as never before.

The holiday marketing mistakes you should avoid in 2019.

Is it time for a new job? Here’s what to look out for.

This woman uses her hijab to turn herself into pop culture characters. (Stunning!)

Ricky Gervais is returning for a fifth stint as Golden Globes host. Thoughts?

Excited to read this memoir, out in February 2020.

Ethan Hawke over here being the best dad.

Free college can work. Here are 2 examples.

The world according to Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

Tempted to buy (and fill!) this for MYSELF!

Do you watch reality TV?

do you watch reality tv? SURVIVOR

This weekend, I was clicking around in Hulu (modern day channel surfing?) when I discovered…

34 seasons of Survivor and 29 seasons of The Amazing Race. WHAT?!? Honestly, I don’t know how I’ve gone this long without stumbling upon this treasure trove.

My introduction to reality tv began in the late 90’s with Road Rules…and I’ve loved it ever since. I would say it’s one of my top guilty pleasures…but I honestly don’t feel that guilty about it. What about YOU? Do you watch reality tv?

A few of my recent favorites include:
The Challenge (I’ve seen every season. #NoShame)
Rupaul’s Drag Race
Sister Wives
Keeping Up With the Kardashians (I know, I know)
American Grit
Hell’s Kitchen (really any cooking competition…I’m not picky)

do you watch reality TV? ROAD RULES

and I used to love:
Real World and Road Rules (of course)
America’s Next Top Model
So You Think You Can Dance
Jersey Shore
The Hills
Naked and Afraid
Teen Mom

and, weirdly enough, one of my favorite things about living in Ireland in the early aughts was the DOPE reality tv. *shrugs* What can I say? I like what I like!

What about you? What reality tv shows do you like? Do you remember the first one you got really into? (Road Rules Northern Trail for me…I was also pretty obsessed with Survivor season 2, lol *ages self*) I’d love to hear your faves! Oh, and if you’re not from America, tell us what reality tv is like in YOUR country…
