Happy Sunday! I love you! What have you learned this week?
I learned a lot about being a good friend this week. I crowdsourced my Twitter followers because like, what is living in the future as an adult if not realizing you don’t have basic socialization skills like making friends? According to the folks who answered, it’s a lot of showing up, a lot of saying “I want to be your friend”, consistency, vulnerability. Friendship also needs a base of compassion and kindness. You aren’t friends if all you’re doing is being vulnerable/having hard convos, one of you is probably a therapist.
I also learned that I’m not a literary scholar and that I have a very, very, weak background in theory. But honestly, who cares. I’d rather be a better friend.
+ Okay this is old, but just to spur your memory: The Craft is coming back. And there is a cast!
The Craft has its coven! The movie, written, directed and produced by @ZoeListerJones, has cast Cailee Spaeny, Gideon Adlon, Lovie Simone and Zoey Luna to join the witchy, wonderful reimagining of the iconic ‘90s film. pic.twitter.com/qa4JxYGtyL

+ Keke Palmer is a true treasure.
I hope you are present this week. I hope you take deep, deep, breaths when you feel overwhelmed. I hope you have moments where you can notice and remember that you live in a body and you can allow that to bring you joy. I hope you feel loved, even if it’s only by me. I hope you get to share something with someone that’s taking up a lot of brain space and are met with empathy and kindness. I hope you laugh each day as much as you laughed as a kid. I hope you smile every day. You’re doing great. Everything’s gonna be okay.
