I grew up reading Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew adventures. I also buried myself in Nicholas Sparks’s novels. Currently, I am reading a book called The 10% Entrepreneur, by Patrick J Mcginnis. The book essentially offers readers advice for following their dreams: hold down a full-time job, but invest 10 per cent of your time, money and resources into becoming an entrepreneur—without losing your steady paycheck.
I feel my time spent watching and re-watching Friends is time well spent. I know that YouTube is flooded with snippets of the series, but I can never have enough of the complete episodes. The series is over a decade old, but its core message—to cherish the bonds of friendship—is timeless. I have also binge-watched Game of Thrones and am looking forward to starting with the Scandal series.
Anything happening and trendy will set my mood just right. Right now, I have on repeat mode Julia Michaels’ ‘Heaven’, from Fifty Shades Freed. Music allows me to escape; it takes me to places where all things are good. Sometimes, it makes me feel like I’m immersed in the kinds of settings you see in movies.
