My Favorite Things is a monthly blog linkup to share the things you love, co-hosted with the lovely Eirene! As always, it’s open for one week starting on the first Tuesday.
Before I start, I’d just like to say that one of the things I love about hosting this linkup is discovering some seriously awesome stuff! I would’ve never known about them if it weren’t for all the monthly submissions, so thank you so much to those who’ve been participating! For those who are here for the first time, I hope you'd join us too.
Momentum is a beautiful tab page add-on for Chrome. Every time you open up a new tab, you’re greeted with a lovely scenic photograph with quick access to the time, weather, a focus line (not shown above), links list on the top left, and a to-do list on the bottom right. You can tell I love to-do lists.
Fresh Off the Boat
I love Fresh Off the Boat because I can relate so much. My grandma had the success perm. My mom has that raging paranoia (“Watch Law & Order!!!” she’d tell me). And I love the 90s setting! The internet dial-up slayed me, remember those? You know you’re getting old when there are kids romanticizing the 90s. It was the time of Hanson, All That, Kenan & Kel, and the Spice Girls. IT WAS AMAZING.
I do have mixed feelings about some of the jokes on the show, but overall they’ve taken care not to make being Asian the punchline, which I appreciate. It’s really just your regular family comedy, but it represents the Asian-American community, the second-largest minority group in the US but one of the most underrepresented in the media. There hasn’t been a show on network TV starring an Asian-American family since 1994 (All-American Girl). That’s a significant point to keep in mind with this show. I really hope it succeeds so it can open more doors for Asian actors.
Plus, Constance Wu is awesome! If anything, watch the show for her. That's it for my faves this month. What are your favorites? Follow the rules below and tell us!

They can be anything — books, movies, gadgets, websites, food, whatever you’re feeling this month. There is no limit either. You can have just one favorite thing or twenty!
