Weekend Reads #98

Friday, August 23, 2019

Hello there! Another Friday has come, and apparently, no matter how much I enjoy my job, weekends are when the magic happens! Some include elaborate plans, but others, like this one, is just for rest, catching up with my reads and the shows I'm watching. It's Trinkets from Netflix this week, and I'm surprised by how much I liked a high school series. It does get a little too much at times (there really was no need to put all the stereotypes about gay boys into one gay boy!), but overall, I enjoy the friendship of the three girls and JUST HOW CUTE Elodie is. Any new shows that should be on my radar? Lemme know! And here's what I thought you might find interesting this week...

OMG, look at these macro photos of butterfly wings!

How millennials became the burnout generation. This is a lengthy read, but so worth it!

Ten things an author learned while writing a book. An excellent read for all of us who write, want to write, or just love reading!

On being a woman in America while trying to avoid being assaulted. I'd add: America, and elsewhere. If you're a man, please don't skip this one.

Contrary to popular belief, you should care less about your work.

I need to remember this on a lot of occasions... what to say when someone asks you what you think of a thing you hate.

Self-care comes in many forms—for the author of this article, it is chicken parm.

Even though it is nowhere to be found in my bookmarks, I'm pretty sure I posted this cute story before. It's about how we lived before the internet.

The beautiful Emilia Clarke on her own battle for life and surviving brain surgeries. Well, of course a strong Daenerys had to be played by a strong personality!

The radical act of embracing your own mediocrity. Loved this! On a similar note, I'm currently reading The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck, and even though I wouldn't exactly say it is NOT a self-help book, it's so different from all the other, fluffy ones! Accepting that most of us are mediocre in most of the things is one of the key points of the book. Give it a read—especially if that sounds awful to you.

Have a great weekend! 

Love, Tihana
