I absolutely adored Tracy’s list of her favourite things and immediately wanted them all.
My friend Alex wrote very thoughtfully and well about the parallels between running and relationships (spoiler alert: they’re hard and they’re worth it).
Free People made a Youtube ad that I liked so much I let it play through til the end. It’s beautifully shot and it did a good job of making me want to go move.
Laci nails it yet again with her explanation of why it’s important not to dismiss the Isla Vista tragedy as only due to the actions of a madman. It may be partially that, but there’s a lot more going on that we should pay attention to.
I’ve been on a quest to eat more good, real food and this old post from Elise was helpful in giving me ideas. It’s what reminded me to make the nut granola!
I’ve been really loving this song by Michael Jackson and the new one from Drake (not suitable for work).
I read another John Green book in one day – they are impossible to put down, this time around it was Paper Towns – and I’m so excited for the TFIOS movie. I’ve been watching lots of clips and featurettes (I’m embarassed to say how many). Here’s one example.
Great advice from awesome women, compiled by Yes and Yes. From Amy Poehler: “The earlier you learn that you should focus on what you have, and not obsess about what you don’t have, the happier you will be. Try to keep your mind open to possibilities and your mouth closed on matters that you don’t know about. Limit your ‘always’ and your ‘nevers.'”
Two Instagram accounts I’m loving lately: beautifully sad poems by @beautaplin and just plain beautiful pictures from @sfgirlbybay.
Some oldies-but-goodies: peanut butter banana bread, what life looked like last June.
It’s another long weekend here in Korea! To celebrate, my friends and I are camping on the beach on a small island not too far away, and then duly admiring the huge sandcastle competition that’s taking place on the beach near my apartment. It should be a beautiful and relaxing few days, and I’m really excited. Happy weekend!
The photo is from my trip to the Amalfi coast last summer.
