Happy Friday! This week’s favorites are filled with an invention, photography, a new romantic comedy, quote products, and my wish list!
If you’re new to My Urban Family, welcome! Each Friday I round up my favorites from the past week – videos, photos, stories, funny items, and products. Let’s dive in!
It’s a good thing I took so many photos in Japan – it’s been cold and raining a lot lately in Chicago so my weekly Instagram photo is yet again one from Japan. If you’re interested in seeing more Japan photos, and hearing about the trip, make sure you check out this week’s post Visiting Japan – Osaka Edition.
A Watch that Quiets Parkinson’s Tremors
Microsoft developed a watch that “vibrates in a distinctive pattern to disrupt the feedback loop between brain and hand.” It helps eliminate the tremors so the device wearer can have a more steady hand and grip. This invention is so amazing – and the fact that it was designed because a graphic designer who wanted to continue her passion and career in design makes me extra happy. You can find out more information here.
The Big Sick
I’m such a sucker for romantic comedies but I haven’t seen a good one in awhile. Hoping this one is as good as the preview looks! What do you think?
Silence is Golden
I wish more people were fluent in silence. I know so many people hate silence but I love it. My favorite friends are the ones who I can chat with for hours but also who I can sit and enjoy the silence with on a road trip. It feels peaceful instead of awkward to me.
So when I saw this journal I figured I should buy it and carry it around, especially public places like the train. I was also thinking this would make a perfect book cover. Basically “don’t talk to me while I’m reading”. I also found this t-shirt which would do the same thing. Maybe I’ll get really salty one day and have it tattooed somewhere 😉
Each week I find myself adding products to my Amazon wish list – it’s getting slightly out of hand. But it’s still fun so I decided to make it a part of my weekly post so you can also see what I have my eye on. If you have something fun you’ve found I’d love to hear about it in the comments!
