Hello Pen Pals! This is a bonus letter just for you, to thank you for supporting us on Patreon. In this letter, we've each chosen to try out something that the other person recommended in a past letter—because what good are recommendations if you don't give them a try? We hope you like it!

💡 Media backlog

From Letter 54

A lot of the time, people will recommend something to me and I’ll say “I’ll put it on my list.” There is no list! It’s in my head! After looking at how aesthetically pleasing Jill’s media backlog was, and also how encouraging it was, I started a list in the back of my planner with notes for things I want to check out and who mentioned it to me. Now, I just have to make sure I actually check it…


🎶 Carly Rae Jepsen’s Dedication Side B

From Letter 38

I’m sort of cheating, because I’m already very familiar with this album—it was one of my top albums on my Spotify Wrapped this year because I listened to it constantly when it came out back near the beginning-ish of quarantine. (May feels like forever ago!) But I haven’t listened to it in months, so I spent my morning revisiting it and remembering how good it is and how much I love CRJ. Her Side B albums always feel extra special to me, and this one got me through a rough couple of months. Felt This Way / Stay Away are my favorites on the album, and maybe some of my favorite songs of hers ever.
