Link Love (07/19/18)

Hi! I hope you are having a great week.

Friday the 13th kicked off an ’80s horror binge for us. Since then, we’ve watched the fourth one in the series (AKA “The Final Chapter”–HA!), Piranha (1978), Chopping Mall (1986), and Sleepaway Camp (1983).

I have to admit I watched Friday the 13th for the first time this past Halloween. I am a late bloomer when it comes to loving horror, and for so many years, I was adamant that I’d never watch the series. Once I finally did, it quickly became my favorite! Young me would be shocked (as are probably some friends). The movies are so enjoyable–funny, scary, gratuitous. What more do you really want from an ’80s flick?

Anyway! I’ve got a short link round-up for you today.

READ

An all-vegan food hall has opened in Miami! We spent a week in South Beach in early 2017 (which honestly feels like 100 years ago) and had the best time. Now I have even more of a reason to go back!

I’m sure some people find this controversial, but I admit that I think it’s great: company WeWork will only reimburse employee meals if they are meatless.

A little older, but I keep coming back to this article on words to keep out of your professional vocabulary. I say “just” all of the time and have been trying to minimize my use of it.

Using the word “just” before a declaration diminishes the intent. Why make your actions appear smaller or less significant? – Kate Arends

WATCH

There’s a teaser for Stranger Things season 3! But, we have to wait a whole year!?

Neill Blomkamp is set to direct a new RoboCop movie! It’s referred to as a sequel, but it’s unclear to me if Joel Kinnaman will be reviving his role, or if it’s more of a reboot.

FOOD

This coffee soda recipe is blowing my mind. I first had a coffee soda in Nashville at Crema. It was an orange coffee soda. I was a bit skeptical, but it was insanely refreshing! I never thought about recreating it–and so easily!

Have a great rest of the week!

Tell me: What movie should we watch next? Got any links to share?
