Friday Favorites (34)

Friday, January 17, 2014

Happy weekend! I have fewer links than usual for you this week, so I'm not categorizing them like I normally would.

23 Reasonable Things Every Person Should Resolve To Do In The New Year. A lot of them spoke to me but I especially loved number four: "Understand that the opposite of love is indifference. Re-evaluate your relationships with that in mind."

The Daily Routines of Famous Writers. Creating and sticking with a daily writing routine has been nearly impossible for me. Do you write every day? What does your routine look like?

I'd totally wear these heels with everything.

This cracked me up: College Students' Thesis Topics Are Hilarious, Depressing. My favorites (thought they're all pretty funny) were "Mark Rothko was a huge asshole." and "Look at this zombie. Isn't it racist and sexist? Yes, it is."

A really important read: You Probably Don't Have Bipolar Disorder (Or One Of These 7 Other Conditions)

A few favorites from a new-to-me shop: this faux fur wrap, these gorgeous earrings, and this super fun dress.

This was so interesting and makes so much sense. (On the difference between using "you're so smart" and "you worked so hard" as praise for your children.)

This Is What -40°F Feels Like. It's really cold.


Rob's in the middle of a big work project, so he'll actually be at the office this weekend more than he's at home, which is a bummer after a busy week for both of us. But I'm looking forward to using Saturday to get myself organized and finally pack for Alt Summit! And on Sunday I think my friend Daci and I might hit Modern Times for brunch. What are you up to this weekend?


  1. I know you've been so busy- but I love it when you share your links! :)

  2. Love these links! Those heels are beautiful. Have a wonderful weekend, my friend!

  3. lolmythesis is probably one of my favorite new finds ever - so true!

  4. Just when I was wondering what to read you save the day!

  5. Interesting recommendations :) Thank you for sharing! I hope you have a great weekend! I am heading to Austin, TX to check out wedding locations :)


  6. Amen to the "you probably don't have these conditions" article. I come from a family where a lot of us actually have compulsive symptoms, so it bugs me to high heaven whenever so called "perfectionists" say they have OCD.

    Oh, and I now have to dig out my Julia Child book. Love her.

    1. Yes! It is so ridiculous and frankly, pretty offensive. I think OCD and bipolar disorder are definitely the most abused in that sense.

      I love Julia, too! She just has such a nice way about her.

  7. LOVE the first link. Number 8 has recently changed my life (slight exaggeration), and #21 is great, too. Also, love the pic!
