Some Sunday Selections

I normally (er… used to normally?) hook up links to my blog during my www. Wednesday feature, but since I’m SO far behind, I figured I’d roll ’em all out here on this lazy Sunday. Or, if you’re like me, you’ve already been up for three hours listening to the Arctic Monkeys and planning blog entries.

+ I LOVE short stories. There is something about them that is so special; here’s a list compiled by Refinery29 of 30 you need to read… bookmarked and ready to go over here!

+ My friend S posted or sent this McSweeney’s article to me forever ago, and it just knocked me off my feet. It’s a perfect picture of our mental health care system right now, as written by a lady writer whose been through it all. She’s also witty as hell, so read it if you like charming-as-hell writing.

+ Not that I know anyone like this (cough… me), but I’ll just leave this here for anyone who might understand the 11 struggles of being a highly sexual being.

+ Through pure chance, I am apparently a combination of two of my lady heroes’ body-type wise: KimK (hourglass) and Angelina (carrot), and I could not be happier. I also adore how many body types they address in this article. #Refinery29JunkieForLife

+ I will never tire of this highly paid teachers salary math problem floating around on the Internet. Spoiler alert: teachers are so, so, SO underpaid.

+ BLESS THIS POST: 15 things you don’t owe ANYONE.

+ Just sayin’, this dude ain’t a marriage counselor for nothing. He understands why women (or men) leave and/or cheat on the ones they love: lack of attention/gratitude/listening.

+ Because I miss it every day, here’s a compilation of 26 Office quotes that will make you laugh. There are thousands more if you just WATCH THE SHOW!

+ I was appalled to find that the Neutrogena products I’d been using for YEARS were exposed as being horrible for you/NOT WORKING this year, especially since I’m (for the most part) vigilant about sun exposure. EWG has an extensive list of sunscreens that actual work, while also being good for your body.

+ God, I hope this scientifically-proven method of decreasing procrastination works on my concrete-stubborn procrastination tendencies.

+ This beauty article makes me feel so validated about my brow tendencies. Here’s how to keep your brows on FLEEK… and get ’em there if you don’t feel satisfied yet 🙂

+ Please enjoy this puppy photo to brighten your day, or you know, make it brighter.

Hopefully I’ve caught up enough to jump back into the www. Wednesday pattern later this week! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, lovies ❤

www. Wednesday

WOW, how long has it been since I’ve gotten to spread the love for the links I’ve been reading lately?! If you said forever, you’d be incorrect… but close.

– – –

+ First things first: I’VE NEVER READ AN ARTICLE THAT SO DESCRIBED WHAT I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO TELL PEOPLE FOR YEARS! An article for people with outgoing characteristics who are INTROVERTS TO THE CORE!! Yes, I tend to be the leader, but I am secretly vomiting inside because I am such an introvert.

+ I know I’m late to the party here because I’ve been absent from the blogosphere lately, but here’s a nice collection of articles explaining why the photo-hacking scandal involving Jennifer Lawrence is literally the worst and also an insanely blatant sex crime.

+ If you love a man in a suit, this article at thesaltcollective is simultaneously suit porn AND the greatest piece of satire ever written. (I’m only peeved Tom Hiddleston didn’t make the photo spread. Mmm, Tom.)

+ As super pro-sunscreen as I am, it made me so, so happy to see this video on Upworthy of people on an ultraviolet camera with and without sunscreen. LOTION UP, SON!

+ It’s really important not to be an offensive douche, so please read this guide to proper head covering titles before you throw around vocabulary you don’t understand.

+ I adore this two-year-old article about how Japan has eliminated deaths by shooting because of their gun law process. It’s about mid-article if you want to read, and seriously reasonable. Check it out no matter where you stand on the issue; it’s nice to see others’ procedures!

+ IMPORTANT FUNDRAISING ANNOUNCEMENT: One of my beautiful friends, S, is in the process of creating a documentary about mental illness in America. This is something those of us who suffer from invisible, yet horrific illnesses, really need. Please donate if you can: http://www.gofundme.com/wearementalillness

+ Oh, and if you get a chance, check out my new business, Stylistic Theorem. This one is here to stay!
