My Recencies: May 13-19

My Recencies

Another week, another My Recencies post! Every week, I will handwrite 5 things I did that week that made me happy, take a picture of it, and post it on Instagram. And that is what I (now) call My Recencies! Without any further ado, here is what I did this week!

Inspiration Thursday: Handlettering and Vlogs

Inspiration Thursday

Whenever I get to Thursday, I just feel like I need some extra inspiration to get me to Friday. This is what is getting me through today!

I’ve been on YouTube non-stop again. This time, it’s a different genre! I’ve been watching a lot of creativity videos specifically on hand lettering and calligraphy.

Here are some recent Instagram posts I found that I loved and made me really want the Aquash Watercolour Brush:

The second Instagram picture is by a woman who goes by Teela or everytuesday online and she also has great YouTube channel. Here’s her Aquash Brush tutorial:

The other thing I’ve been watching in YouTube had been messydownunder, or Jessica Lovelace, specifically her vlogs. I think I like them because they’re real and raw and it feels like I’m watching a friend’s vlog. I watched all of them in chronological order, so it feels like I went through her life as she lived them. This video is the start of her vlog playlist, but she seems to be missing a couple videos from the list. I went back and watched them all. I’m a weirdo! She made me really want to start a vlog, and get back to creating, so maybe I will this weekend!

Check Out Episode 70 of the Weekly Geek Out Podcast!

If you didn’t already know, I started a podcast with my good friend Sowmya, and we’re over at We’re The Worst podcast! We talk about a bunch of things, from food to our aspirations and we even play games! This is what we were up to this week!


Every 4 weeks, we have a game time episode, and this is that episode! This month was a bunch of random questions from all the random sources we have (Chat Pack, Family Dinner, If…, and 4,000 Question for Getting To Know Anyone and Everyone) and one of the questions was “If you could be any machine, what machine would you be?” and we had to look up the technical definition of “machine”. Pretty amusing!

You can listen to the episode here and check out the rest of our episodes on our website!
