Chill Vibes, Vol. 9
Summer's here... let's vibe!
The last two weeks have flown by. Summer is HERE, baby. It’s been hot AF 🥵 in the Midwest but my sweet 17-year-old baby is thriving in the sunshine. As long as he’s happy (and comfy), I’m happy. Cat Tax/proof:
Work has been intense as I prepare to launch a project I’ve been working on for the past few months (whoo!). I’ll have to work this weekend but that’s fine, so long as everything goes according to plan!
Writing is going well — I’m prepping to begin querying agents for my debut novel (ahhh!). Please send me good vibes as I embark on that journey!
Additionally, I’ve been on Substack for six months! Whoo! 🥂
If you haven’t read my latest post, please open ‘er up and vote in the polls I included. It will be extremely helpful to hear from you to help guide the future of the vibes here!
Some housekeeping: I’ve decided to open up Chill Vibes to the masses on Sunday mornings going forward (still biweekly). However, if you’re interested in getting this little biweekly roundup on Friday mornings to start your weekend off right, you’ll need to upgrade to a paid/founding subscription. I plan to grow these issues over the next couple of months and bring in other things I find online, but for now, it will continue to be links to great reads, fun videos, and silly memes to keep smiles on your faces.
Alrightythen. Now that’s done… Let’s get into it! ✌🏻

Are you ready to vibe? I found this lovely hour-long chill music that has me fully relaxed. I hope you enjoy it too!
I might have pre-grieved the end of Succession, but man, I’m all in my feels that it’s over. I am going to miss this show so much! So, I’m spending some time having some lols with these two videos to ease the pain.
