Something Good

1. Cry Today, Smile Tomorrow my new favorite song by Anthony Ramos. In related news, Mars’ Song From ‘She’s Gotta Have It’ Season 2 Confirms That Anthony Ramos Was Born For The Stage.

2. Here’s What Gets Each Introverted Myers-Briggs Type Red-Hot Motivated. What it says about my type, INFJ, sounds pretty accurate.

Nothing is more motivating to INFJs than making a difference in someone’s life. Like the ISFJ, they are drawn to help others in need, whether it’s just a friend having a bad day, or someone going through a true crisis. Where the ISFJ tends to focus on immediate care, however, the INFJ starts looking at patterns: How can we make things better overall?

This taps into an INFJ’s intuitive knack for psychology: They tend to quickly see why a person is doing what they’re doing, what they really want, and what they could do differently to get it. It also builds on their desire to see large, systemic change for the better — looking at the forest, so to speak, in order to care for the trees.

Together, these talents give them a reputation for insight and wisdom, and it’s when that can be of service to others that they truly feel passionate and at their best.

Every time I watch a movie like this I think to myself, “see, how hard was that?” I’m so glad there are so many new content providers, making movies with characters we want to see, proving the big studios wrong when they claim to make the movies people want as they make the same white male centered bullshit over and over again.
