So Snapchat has this new filter that makes you look like a boy or girl, and it's intrigued me enough to re-install the app after deleting it due to lack of use years ago. Coupled with a Bitmoji installation, I feel like I'm joining Gen Z.

US-China also entered another trade war. It seems as though a lot of the strategy is tit-for-tat, at least on our end, so there's little predicting what the end result will be with a US president that doesn't quite to seem understand, let alone follow, the rules of economics. Even though not conclusive, chances are that consumers bear the costs in the end.

Alabama passed another restrictive abortion law, prompting my social media feed to blow up in outrage and offers to women who might need a couch to stay at in another state, should they need an abortion. Here we go again, arguing about the regression of basic healthcare rights in this supposedly modern country. 

And crime still happens in the SF Bay Area. My brother's wife got her car window smashed a couple of months ago, and just now, my friend got her car window smashed. Petty crime is persistently on the rise in this area, and it doesn't seem that anyone knows what to do regarding being tough on crime anymore.

    @vickenstein you need to sign up for Tik Tok as well to really join Gen Z lol. It's the first time I've felt old using a social app.

    @vickenstein - I had to double check that you're not in the Bay Area. I haven't had a window broken lately, but have in the past. It's lame. It's a lot like leaving a door open in the summer -- the flies are going to come in. Nature.

      @ghiarguello Haha, I'm from the Bay, so I just visit family once or twice a year! Definitely one of the many inconveniences of having window-less cars :P
