This week's favorites are below! Send me your suggestions for anything you think I should include! 

WATCH

The Defiant Ones on HBO: Money, Fame, Business and 90’s gangsta rap. What else do you need to know? Grab a snack though, it’s 4 hours long.

The 90’s on CNN: Yes, you know that decade that brought us dial-up internet, Clueless, and that famous “blue” dress. You can relive all of it now.

Game of Thrones: It’s violent, the names are hard to remember, but somehow I still get enthralled by it. Watch it so that you know what people are talking about all the time. Just don’t try to watch the whole series in 3 days. Read the recaps. The only thing you need to know is, Jon Snow FOREVAH! Starts 4/18

READ

Your Weekly Reminder of Why Millennials Suck: This week it’s because we do things out of order. Recap: Boomers use minuscule data points to tell us to stop having babies out of wedlock!

If Latinos Were Their Own Economy. Recap: They/We would basically be a pretty powerful country that many Americans couldn’t find on a map.

How Systemic Segregation of Schools Is Maintained by Your Choices. Yes, YOU! Who ME? Recap: If the schools in your neighborhood suck, you are supposed to do something about it. 

LISTEN

Did I mention I have a podcast? Listen to the trailer here

What’s the deal with Russia? Did you forget all the details? I did too. Luckily The Outline Dispatch did a recap that you can listen to while you do your least favorite chore. Note: People in Ohio who won 45 the election aren’t really alarmed about this. Most days, this podcast is about interesting tech, culturally relevant news. Hit subscribe. 

Creating Espacios is a podcast hosted by Forbes contributor, Vivian Nunez. Listen to her episode with EIC of Cosmo Latina, Michelle Herrera Mulligan and her episode with 20-something Mitzi Gaitan who i’m sure will be winning some type of 30-Under-30 award any day now.

DO GOOD, BE GOOD-Small insights on how to be better and small ways to make a big difference

Buy Cards Against Humanity PINK Edition. Same as the other cards just with the added tax that comes with being a woman. Proceeds go to Emily’s List, an organization that supports women who are running for office. Sounds like a no brainer! Plus, the game is actually pretty fun!

Your emotions and your stomach are linked! Recap: Do a gut check, then buy some probiotics. Call me in 3 weeks when your life has changed.

Resilience isn’t about enduring but about how you recharge.The key to resilience is trying really hard, then stopping, recovering, and then trying again. Recap: It’s ok to stop after a tough week at work and take it easy the next. You are not a machine. Stop trying to be like the people who brag about sleeping 4 hours, you know who sleeps 4 hours? I’ll give you a hint his last name rhymes with, “rump.”

Finally but probably of most importance this week. The greedy people are coming for our internet know. Rules to protect the internet had been put in place in 2015 but you know, elections have consequences. Essentially, they want to create pathways for content to be prioritized. Meaning, if I have a lot of money to pay, my content will download faster than your cousin’s obscure blog. The providers can decide what content to prioritize. The small # of companies that control our internet can do whatever they want since the person that was put in charge of the FCC is a former lawyer for Verizon. Read more about it here.

That's all folks!
