Happy July, readers! I hope the summer is treating everyone well and that you are finding fun ways to beat the heat. Grab a cold beverage, crank up the air conditioner, and tune into this week’s batch of link love to entertain yourself on one of those days when you just can’t bear to go outside. :)
Fashion designers in the 1930s predicted that we’d be wearing outfits like these by the year 2000. I think we could all use an electric belt to adapt the body to climactic changes. (I think it’s also important to have that headlight to help “find an honest man,” but I guess we have flashlights on our iPhones and that’s kind of the same thing.)
Over the last few months, I’ve had the pleasure of contributing to the London-based career advice blog, Career Camel. These guest articles have given me the awesome opportunity to share career- and college-related advice with a brand new audience! I’m excited to show you my most recently published article, Nailing the Interview: What Every Job Candidate Should Know, where I provide some tried-and-true techniques for landing the job of your dreams.
Please check it out and comment to let me know what you think! :) Feel free to add your own tips in the comments section as well.
Good afternoon, friends, and sorry for any lack of updates lately! To make it up to you, I’d like to share my latest guest blog for Career Camel, a London-based website dedicated to helping college students lock down the career of their dreams.
Good evening, readers, and happy June! How have you decided to start your month? I kicked off June with my third Whole 30 (because I am clearly insane!) and by participating in the 100 Happy Days challenge. For the next 100 days, I will photograph something that makes me happy – and I encourage you to do the same! If you’d like to see my progress (I’m on Day 4 so far), feel free to follow my Instagram!
Plenty of interesting/strange news has also come with the new month, so allow me to share this week’s batch of link love with you!
What a wonderful week it has been! In the last seven days, I celebrated my one-year anniversary at work, played my favorite arcade games and won a silly mask, visited my family for Mother’s Day, and went on a shopping spree. I’m looking forward to the weekend already, but as always, the Internet has done a great job of keeping me entertained after work. :)
BuzzFeed posted these 50 completely unexplainable stock photos (like the man with the corn dog, pictured left) that had me literally laughing out loud. For the record, I would probably have a similar reaction if someone asked me to eat a corn dog!
I am excited to share that my guest blog, From Breaking Up in the Age of Social Media, was published today on The Things I Learned From. Check out my post on how social media affects not only the beginning, but also the end of our relationships. Drop a comment to let me know what you think!
For those of you who celebrated, I wish you a very happy belated Thanksgiving and/or Hanukkah! I am thankful for many things at this juncture in my life: a wonderful family, a great group of friends, a job I love and a supportive network of readers! :) Of course, I am also thankful for some of the awesome articles and links I came across over the last week or so, and am excited to share them with you as we make our way into December!
The country’s longest married couple provides relationship advice for making your marriage last 81 years or more. At a time when more than half of marriages end in divorce, this article will reaffirm your belief in love and most definitely melt your heart.
Alexandra Franzen’s mantra will help you out in times when you have trouble remembering who you are, what you do or why you do it.
Not long ago, I exchanged blogs with Julie Kesti, a Minnesotan ex-pat artist living in Shanghai. I am happy to say that the experience led to a blog swap with Megan Lierley of Tales for Scout, a blog I will now be reading regularly! Tales for Scout focuses on especially on Megan’s travel adventures in San Francisco, where she lives, but is also a fantastic read for twenty-somethings.
Here is a round-up of a few of Megan’s wonderful blog posts. Definitely check out her page, especially if you plan to visit San Francisco any time soon!
Megan’s “Live Like You’re Abroad” series allows her to explore and write about some of the hidden gems in her very own backyard, San Francisco. She has traveled extensively out of the country, but these posts feature travel adventures on a much more local scale. (They definitely inspire me to do a little more exploration in my own city — and they instill in me a desire to visit San Francisco!)
What do you get when you take a very full work calendar, a birthday and a series of federal and religious holidays? A blogger who forgets to post Link Love for a few weeks! :) Hopefully today’s round-up of posts about topics ranging from Generation Y to jet lag won’t disappoint.
Millennials (those of us born between the late 70s and mid-90s) have gotten a lot of criticism over the years for being self-centered and “entitled.” The negative qualities of Generation Y seems to be a hot topic these days, but this apology video raises a lot of interesting points! I agree with a lot of what this video says, especially as someone who thinks that the millennial criticism is a little overdone.
I try to be well-read and informed through my annual 50 book challenge, but this article on how to read more provides some great advice for someone looking to broaden their horizons.
Let’s face it – there are a lot of crazy people in Florida. @_FloridaMan is a Twitter page about “the world’s worst superhero,” which basically includes headlines that include the words “Florida man” throughout the state’s news. Follow his Twitter for a good laugh!
Remember Lee and Morty Kaufman from the Swiffer commercials? Check out this article about the two 90-somethings that viewers fell in love with. So cute!
This salary counter will help you calculate what salary you would need to make to have a similar standard of living in a different city. (I was shocked when I calculated what my salary would need to be if I moved to Manhattan!) Great tool for anyone considering relocating.
