Am I the only person who hasn’t ever of the Shomi series Hindsight? I randomly discovered it a couple of days ago when Ali and I were searching for a movie to watch. Ali hit play because he thought it was a movie and we both came to a realization: He totally wasn’t into it and I totally was. I’ve burned through a few episodes already. It’s about a 30-something woman who is about to get married for the second time and is having doubts. She gets into an elevator after her rehearsal dinner, presses a button and suddenly falls unconscious to the floor. When she wakes up it’s 1995, she’s 21 and gets a second chance at her life starting with her first marriage but with the knowledge of everything from the future. I’ve thought about what it would be like to do this EXACT thing. Obviously going back is not at all possible because time travel is impossible but that doesn’t mean that thinking about it isn’t… The decisions you wouldn’t make a second time, or the ones that you would even know how they turn out. Or maybe just to go back and tell myself those overalls in 1999 really weren’t a good look but that I should have had a pair of Dr.Martens. I’m going to be watching Hindsight more this weekend and you should to.
When you need a break from watching Hindsight you need to pick up Leave Your Mark by Aliza Licht. I can’t really tell you much about the book seeing as I haven’t even started it yet but I can tell you that I’m really looking forward to reading it. I am active in social media (and blogging), I’m currently unemployed and want to kill it professionally. Licht has serious social media street cred as the former social media maven for DKNY. I need to know there is light at the end of the unemployed economic downturn and I’m looking forward to reading Leave Your Mark this weekend.
