Saturday Sites : 03/28/20

Since many of us are finding ourselves with some extra time these days, I decided to start posting a weekly roundup of websites I discover.* I’m going to try to avoid posting things about the virus because if you’re like me, you already read enough about it and need a bit of a break!

Saturday Sites Grap (1)

  • I’m so guilty of being on my phone way too often. Here are some tips that I want to integrate to help curb my phone usage.

  • If you need a creative outlet, try Morning Pages. This post talks about what they are and how to get started. I want to start on April 1st!

  • A hockey announcer from New York has started doing play-by-plays of different things, such as traffic on his street and a scene in The Lion King. Check out his Instagram feed for some entertainment!

  • Good list of tips to bring the outdoors in when you’re stuck inside, even if you don’t have a yard to play in.

  • According to this article, Animal Crossing : New Horizons is the game we deserve right now…

  • Jimmy Fallon and The Roots made a video of what should be the unofficial quarantine anthem.

That’s it for today! Have a great Saturday!

*I used to have posts called Seven Sunday Sites. These are completely different because it isn’t Sunday, and I’m not committing to a number. Important distinctions, right?

You’re speaking my language

Today, a work friend stopped by to visit because she said she needed a break from some stress, and she knew I would be funny. (#humblebrag but not really humble…just brag…). While she was there, she inadvertently told me about a website that I will now use forever to torture people – funtranslations. There are over 50 different types of translations on the site. I won’t talk about all of them here, but I thought it would be fun (for me at least…) to translate some things for your reading enjoyment.

Original, American English sentence : Why are you making me think this late at night? Please note, that I asked Will to help me think of a sentence, and this is his contribution. Joke’s on you, sucker, because I’m using this one!

This is just a small sample of what they have. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I will enjoy sending annoying texts and emails to people I know! 😉
