The Week’s End // A Roundup of Important Reads

Hello friends and welcome to the weekend. I’m a little late, as usual, but if you’re still looking for some interesting reads to check out while you relax, look no further, I got you covered. Here are the things I found important, inspiring, and interesting enough to share this week:

Desert wildflowers cover the ground around the Amboy Crater in the Mojave Trails National Monument on March 15 in Twentynine Palms, California during yearly bloom.

So disrespectful and utterly embarrassing.

Trump’s budget is both heartless and pointless.

Is America great again, yet?

Resistance made easy.

Six years war.

The best we could do.

The largest humanitarian crisis since the end of the second world war. We have to help.

Author Amy Krouse Rosenthal died this week. Read her viral essay and her books.

Missing Richard Simmons” makes me uncomfortable.

Safe, inclusive, conversational.

I haven’t eaten at McDonald’s in years, but I almost ran out for a Big Mac and Shamrock shake this week :)

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

Hello friends! If you’re looking for some interesting reads to check out while you relax, look no further, I got you covered. Here’s what’s been going on in the world, and on the internet, this week.

Trump Syllabus 2.0

Our President-elect and his white nationalists, neo-Nazi supporters.

The fight against HIV/AIDS is far from over.

A constitutional right to literacy.

Standing Rock is not just about land, or water, or the right to protest. It’s about people.

Find news you can trust and consume it greedily.

No one really wants to be nice.

“Somebody shoulda told me it would be like this, be like this, be like this.”

A bit of surprising flash fiction.

Happy Saturday friends! If you’re looking for some interesting reads to check out while you kick back and relax, look no further, here is the best of the web this week, according to me.

***

Trump supports are hilarious….and terrifying. Bonus: The GOP is scrambling right now.

He was describing sexual assault.

“It made no sense. Of course, nothing was making sense the longer he was dead.”

Nicotine is a helluva drug.

Solange’s new album is everything. Bonus: Now playing, on repeat.

“You need to be affected by these deaths.”

It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

Horror movies for anxiety?

It’s never too late to get back to basics.

Maybe the humans win, but perhaps they lose something of greater importance.”

The Week’s End // A Few of My Favorite Internet Things

Happy Saturday everyone! If you’re looking for some interesting reads to check out while you kick back and relax, look no further, I’ve got you covered! Every weekend I like to share with you the most interesting things I found across the great, wide web. Enjoy!

An Open Letter To Amanda Lauren From Someone ‘Beyond Help’ // Let’s Queer Things Up!

Let’s look at the facts: You celebrated the death of a mentally ill person. In doing so, you told people everywhere, “Some people with mental illness are better off dead.”

If you haven’t read the ugly xoJane piece that has the internet, ad myself, seething with rage you can still find it on the Wayback Machine. If you visit the old URL xoJane has replaced the original article with an apology that feels just as offensive.

Bonus: You can read the original author’s backpedaling for yourself on Gawker if you want to ruin your whole weekend.

50 Things That Actually Happen When You Live Together // Her Track

People seem to write and talk about living together in one of two ways. They either go deep into the terrifying repercussions of making this decision, or they make it sound entirely too good to be true.

I am a believer that no relationship can be judged to be viable through thick and thin until the two parties have lived together. I don’t mean that you can’t love someone you don’t live with, only that you cannot know the limits of your love until you do.

A List Of Things In Literature, Music and Art That Are Actually Metaphors For Women // The Belle Jar

Did you know that sometimes when it seems like men are writing or talking or singing about something, often it is actually about a lady?

So yeah, men are always be writing about a woman, women they love and women they hate. Sometimes those feelings can come together in the same damn woman.

***

The Silence of the Lambs – Who Wins the Scene? // Every Frame a Painting

In drama, two characters walk into a room. Each wants something from the other. The question of the scene is: who gets what they want?

There’s o doubt that the Silence of the Lambs is an amazing film. Little insights like this make it all the more interesting to me. Might have to watch it again this weekend

***

Flash fiction: Waiting Room // Clair Fuller

In the autumn of 1968 Cara Adamo alighted from the 15.47 at Napoli station.

This short piece was very inspiring and I feel it may have lit a little spark in me. Made me want to write more fiction of my own again.

The Dark Tower May Have Found A Clever Way To Protect Itself From Nitpicking Nerds // Birth.Death.Movies

If you’re not a hardcore Dark Tower nerd, this image probably isn’t setting your world on fire.

I love, love, love the Stephen King series The Dark Tower and when I heard a movie was in the works I just about pissed myself with joy and excitement. This tweet just about killed me.

lies i tell (400) // tuckedintoacorner

sorry. sorry, darlings, that i’m not the woman you want me to be.

Sorry, not sorry.

“My Mother is an Alcoholic” Club – Part 1 // HeartsEverywhere

I miss my mother; it was a strange feeling to have her back for a few hours only to know I’ll lose her to the bottle again.

Such a beautiful and heart-wrenching piece. My father is an alcoholic (many years sober ow) and while every child of an alcoholic has their own story. There are always the same similarities. A pain that links us all.

***

Who Am I? // School of Life

What is it that makes us most distinctively ourselves? Our bodies, our memories, our values…? Take a tour through the philosophy of personal identity.

You know you are you but do you know what makes you and what doesn’t? What if you lost some part of you, who would you be then? Which parts would you be willing to give up?

***

DIY Califia Hanging Planter // Califia Farms

Get ready for the indoor herb garden of your dreams.

I thought I’d share a weekend project me and my girlfriend are tackling. We do drink Califia Farms beverages but obviously you could do this with any type of plastic bottle. It’s another way to reduce waste and grow my own herbs I the house.
