This past summer, I signed up for a 5 Day Challenge Art Journal workshop because, I needed a creative artsy outlet to let off some steam. It was quite therapeutic.

We can all agree that 2020 has been absolutely nuts! However, one thing that 2020 has afforded me is the opportunity to slow down, reassess, review, and most importantly, write things down! In this podcast, I discuss my movement towards using paper planners again, a practice I had gotten out of the habit of before the pandemic. I have found paper planners, planning, and writing things down during this pandemic to be quite helpful.

Before you write the Black Lives Matter Movement off, just remember, if freedom is what you celebrate, you must understand that both the celebration of freedom and an effort to move the needle of what it means to be free forward, can indeed coexist, because, well…. This is America. I originally blogged about this topic on the 4th of July this past summer, but I wanted to share the topic on the podcast because I believe it is a topic that is relevant year round.

Given the amount of time it looks like we'll be spending in the house over the next few weeks, a lot of DJs, famous and not so famous, are entertaining the masses with virtual dance parties.

As we get older and our bodies change, the notion of having fun also changes. Some of us, unfortunately can't do the same things we used to do in our 20s, in our 40s.

In this episode, on the cusp of Valentine's Day, I reminisce on dating back in the day, the 80s/90s to be specific. After watching another episode of that 90s TV show, Living Single, I reflect on how Overton took the time to plan a date for Sinclair, featuring everything she liked. My question, in 2020, is, do men still do that? Is planning a date for your significant other a lost art? Or do men leave it up to women? Or whatever your dating situation may be? Share your thoughts. And be sure to join the discussion on the Facebook group, www.facebook.com/theclique
In the 90s we had TV shows like Martin, Living Single, Girlfriends, and Friends that focused on friendships. They all had strong friend groups. Over the years I've developed some great relationships with people. College? Work experiences? Different parts of the country? Different backgrounds? How have strong friendships shaped your life? Have your friendships been long lasting? When we are young we experience breakups, etc. As we grow older, in our 40s, we experience marriages, divorces, child births, graduations, housewarmings, deaths, health scares, etc. Have your friends been there for you? If so, how? Vice Versa, how have you been there for them? Do you consider yourself a good friend? Thank you for listening to the clique.
