It’s Friday again! Holiday parties abound and students and professionals scramble to finish up their work before getting a well-deserved break. Recharge with some new music, information, and laughs – this is what we used this week:

Kanye West Video
Saw this the other day. A really great watch for people who are more music-based in their approach.

As always, we love hearing back from you what you’re using, listening to, and your own self-care. Shoot us a line in the comments below to share.


Thanks all for now, folks!
