Happy hump day! It's already Sept. 20, which is pretty insane — the fall months always fly by, but man, these past few weeks have seriously come and gone in the blink of an eye.
Thankfully, today wasn't a majorly news-heavy day, but that doesn't mean there isn't still a lot to discuss. Read on for a recap of everything that had Bustle's editors talking this Wednesday:
Netflix + What's Coming Next Month
October is fast approaching, and that means there are new movies and TV shows on Netflix coming our way. What's coming to Netflix in October includes beloved films like Miss Congeniality and highly-anticipated TV series like Stranger Things Season 2, so get excited. But it's not all good news — what's leaving Netflix next month includes 30 Rock and Titanic. Say what?!
Pro Tip: This is the one movie you should watch on Netflix before it leaves at the end of the month.
Serena Williams + A Powerful Letter
It's not like anyone had any doubt that she'd be the coolest mom, but a letter that Serena Williams shared about her daughter proves once and for all that the tennis star's baby girl Alexis is one lucky kid. In the open letter, Williams tells her mom (and readers) about how proud she is that Alexis shares her powerful body, despite the hate the athlete has received over the years for her strength. If you're not in tears after reading this letter, you're made of steel.
Speaking Of Powerful Women... Here's what Hillary Clinton's presidential election victory speech would've sounded like. Sniff.
Mexico + How To Help
The last several weeks have seen one major natural disaster after another, with the earthquake in Mexico City the latest horrific event. Here's how to help those affected by the Mexico quake, which has killed at least 200 people so far. As this shocking video of a Mexico building collapsing in seconds shows, the earthquake's effects have been absolutely devastating.

Well, now we know the real story behind Sydne Newberry's post, and the full explanation is even better than you'd expect. Can a recipe comment receive a Pulitzer Prize?
