Friday Reflections

1.) Behold, another article/interview of Ellen Pompeo on how to own your shit.

2.) The Emir of Kano (and former Central Bank Governor) on being a modernist (and traditionalist), a polygamist, and Nigeria's governance

3.) If someone told me that I would learn one of the greatest lessons in faith on Grey's Anatomy, I would have said, not possible! But it happened, season 14 episode 17 did it; it taught me so much about faith. So darn much.

4.) I think the thing that has been consistent in Grey's is its theme that "no matter how dark it gets, the sun will rise again."

5.) And gosh April Kepner, as played by Sarah Drew is a brilliant character. I should write one of these for that character especially since Drew is leaving.

6.) This Meek Mill's situation is quite sad.

7.) Lol. I have had this list for so long  (without posting), that Meek Mill has now been released from prison. ha.

8.) What fullness is...on getting weight reduction surgery. The struggle, Lord Jesus. Can I just say this is why it's sometimes insensitive to comment on people's weight or other things like skin issues, you never know what the person is going through.

9.) This old post with interview of eye witnesses reminiscing (one year later) about the 2017 Oscar night fiasco, where La La Land was announced as the winner instead of Moonlight. Two things: first, people in Hollywood are very, very self-absorbed. Granted, it was an awkward night, but reading that article you'd think a war broke out that day or someone died. Gosh.

10.) Second, that's what happens when people like the Pwc accountant are more about all the hype than the job. And there are people like that in EVERY field: they care more about making lots of empty noises on social media about their jobs that actually doing their jobs or working. It irritates me.

11.) Speaking of the job over the hype, check out this badass woman building technology for women's health issues. I just love when people who are actually changing the world are doing it so quietly without all the hype or plenty noise or without an over-bloated ego.

12.) This article on 6 things the author thought she would do before 30, but definitely won't is quite satisfying and honestly, freeing. I especially love the points on diet and buying a house.
