well, i’m officially a no good, very bad blogger. i have these dreams of being the type of person who sits down at her computer each day (or, let’s be real, each night) and writes something, anything, just to get some words on the page. but instead, i go on living my life, not tending to my little corner of the internet, except for when i publish these silly end of the week roundups that no one really cares about anyway. i don’t know why, exactly, i can’t seem to get it together. part of it might be that i sit at a computer all day long and when i come home the last thing i want to do is touch my laptop. literally, i don’t think i’ve opened my personal laptop in a month. sorry, laptop, love you miss you xoxo.
i have all these ideas, and all these moments i want to write about, and then i just plain don’t get around to it. ask pretty much any accomplished writer for advice on writing, and they’ll tell you the first thing to do is to sit your ass down in your chair and just WRITE SOMETHING. which is what i need to do. sit my ass down – at lunch, at work, at home, in front of my TV, at starbucks, anywhere really – and WRITE SOMETHING.
so, here i go again, trying to be a good blogger for the one or two people who actually read this thing, but also for myself, because i know i’m a better writer when i write all the time.
ANYWAY, now that i’ve gotten that off my chest, here are the interesting things i read and loved this week.
three little dots, a whole lot of anxiety. how the iphone’s “typing awareness indicator” is killing us slowly (i’m exaggerating, sort of).
this guy dropped one letter from his resume and the offers came flying in. whitewashing, folks.
this list of 25 things all basic white girls do during the fall hit waaay close to home. guess i’m basic, guys. i may not drink PSLs but i looove me some autumn.
that’s it. i’m booking a trip to turkey. no but really – how amazing does this place look? perfect for a honeymoon (or for SAF ladies like myself, a girl’s trip).
i think you’re fat. i clicked on this because i am fat, but i stayed because it’s a great read about radical honesty.
i just finished kevin kwan’s crazy rich asians, and it was a total mindfuck. has anyone read it? thoughts?!
