Happy Saturday y'all! Below, I have rounded up some things for you to think about this weekend:

1. A big change is coming soon to New York City's Metro: the MetroCard will be replaced with a more modern way to pay transit fares. The new payment options will support Apple Pay, Android Pay, and Samsung Pay in addition to "contactless cards" (credit and debit cards that use near-field communication technology). Not only will this be a more seamless method of paying for a ride on the Metro, it will also be more secure than traditional credit and debit cards, which do not use the same level of encryption as the modern forms of payments do.

2. If you're looking for some guidance in your own self-reflection practice, it may be worth checking out these thought-provoking questions from clinical psychologist Dr. Jordan Peterson. The goal is to spend some time thinking about your own answers for each question, thus becoming more in touch with the person that you currently are and the ideal version of yourself that you would like to strive to become. 

That's all for this week's edition of Weekend Thoughts. Until next week, keep thinking wilder.
