This might be hard to believe, but it's already Friday. That's right! We basically had a half-week once again thanks to one more precious holiday, and now there's nothing left to look forward to but that sweet, sweet weekend downtime. For me, it'll be watching those movies I haven't gotten around to yet. Bumblebee was the first movie I rang in 2019 with, and it was incredibly precious. Also fun: Escape Room.
