The Week’s End // A Round-up of Important Reads

So, guess who totally forgot to post this week’s round-up yesterday? This absent-minded girl! Sorry about that.

Without further ado, here is the best of the web this week, according to me.

***

The US is KILLING it in the Olympic games. Some of my favorites are Simon Biles, Simon Manuel, Daryl Homer, Michelle Carter, and Micheal Phelps.

Trump thinks he can say whatever he wants, as long as it’s “just a joke,” but words have consequences.

An animated short film about artificial intelligence, empathy, and love.

Happens to me all the time.

Twitter is a great place to express yourself and connect with like-minded intellectuals and assholes.

Did anyone else feel a little conflicted about Harley Quinn and the Joker‘s relationship?

This is weird. Don’t watch it.

Each of us carries a kind of pain and a wish to end that pain. Take it day by day. None of us struggle alone.

Why don’t I ever find any free bin treasures? *pouts*

Day by day.
