Did you know I foster pitbull puppies?
LA has a problem with dumb people owning, neglecting & breeding pitbulls and as a result many are discarded and end up at the shelter.
They happen to be my favorite breed (or the breed I think are the cutest, most beautiful and that have the best personality. Boxers too!!!)
I can't own a dog... I travel too much... I don't know if I could afford unexpected hefty vet bills... So instead, I temporarily foster dogs and get to selfishly experience the joy, companionship, comedy & affection (and structure) these dogs provide, while helping them during a transitional phase before they get adopted.
I've learned from working with different rescues that picking a reputable one to work with is important. That way it's not a pain in the butt dealing with them, and most importantly you can trust that the dog you've bonded with will end up in a deservingly great home with owners that will give them a good life. You definitely become emotionally attached and saying goodbye to your foster dog is easier knowing the rescue picked great owners.
I foster through Angel City Pitbulls (looky!) - by far the most reputable and organized I've encountered.
Here's a photo of my current foster dog, 3 month old Jorga who is a VERY SILLY and happy girl. She is snuggling in bed only a couple days after being rescued from an overcrowded city shelter.

TV!!!!!!!! and other things
TRANSPARENT (TV show on Amazon)
ACKKKK It's so cringrworthy at times but I'm hooked. Watch if you want a good dramedy (lol sorry to use that word)
ERIC ANDRE SHOW (TV show on Hulu / Adult Swim)
If you think it's funny we will probably be friends... There are some snippets that make me very uncomfortable... But it is the only show I've watched in the past couple years that has me crying and unable to talk I am laughing so hard.
When I was in my late-teens/early twenties I LIVED for this stuff. Wondershowzen & TV Carnage & Mr. Show were my fav and this is very reminiscent. It also features Hannibal Buress who I love
INSECURE (TV show on HBO Go)
Only 3 eps up on HBO Go but I lurved all of dem
Show starring 2 cool girls that are BFFs and are endure frustrating dating & experiences with their careers. They're the same age as me (29) and I find it comforting in some ways that we share similar challenges.
2 DOPE QUEENS podcast (Listen here!!!)
Podcast hosted by Jessica Williams & Phoebe Robinson where they chat about day-to-day stuff and manage to make everything relatable & hilarious. They have a bunch of stand up comic guests on each episode, all of whom I've usually never of and are v funny. I appreciate that it's produced and edited well, consistently funny & high quality. LAUGHING IS GOOD FOR YOU
HELLO HAPPY PLANTS company (--> look here <--)
Small biz selling xrtemely colorful, cute & at times funny planters. Random right? They also have Thrasher style shirts that say "Plants" hehehhe. They are so bright and colorful and fun (how life should be in general oui?) and they don't take themselves seriously which makes me love em so much. I love everything about this company and they are based in Florida which makes me like Florida way more
