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.
Wildflower Bloom Carpets Southern California in Vivid Color

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

I am a day late and the weekend is nearly over now I know, but I still had a few stories I wanted to share with you all before the work week begins. So, here’s what’s been going on in the world, and on the internet, this week.

2016: You played yourself.

I don’t even feel sorry for you.

A quick self-check.

A syllabus for every issue, no excuses.

We should have known, but now we know.

There is a politics to exhaustion.

Everyone is still mad at everyone.

Employment

Socrates would be so disappointed in us.

The iguana run got even better!

My mother, her failures, and mine.

Happy Saturday friends! If you’re looking for some interesting reads to check out while you kick back and relax, look no further, I got you covered. This week’s selections are all about the election reactions and a few on tough human connections. Oh, and I added a pretty awesome playlist there at the end.

Here’s to Obama. Thank you for your time and your service. You will be missed.

Remember: It’s not okay to struggle alone.

“From this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part.”

White women, WYD?

Condemn ignorance, racism, and hate, where you see it.

An exploration of abuse, war, and love.

Do not let this loss have been in vain. Come together.

We could all use a little encouragement.

Everything is temporary. Everything is permanent.

My new favorite “Get Shit Done” playlist.

Mandatory De-education Classes

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.”

Have you seen the newest Trump attack ad from Hillary? It’s brutal! :)

Why do we still thinks it’s okay to put people down based on their body type?

A perfect piece of art that is full of flaws and falling apart.

“Being transgender is not a mental illness. But I absolutely believe that mental illness can impact our experiences of being transgender.”

Next time someone tries to act like they don’t understand how consent works or what rape is, show them this.

Call me “Honey” one more time.

Addiction is not weakness; it is chemistry, and harder than you can imagine to overcome.

A day in the life of this taxi driver in Istanbul will remind you that life is beautiful if you look at it the right way.

Ten bullet points.

Hot coffee or iced coffee? A difficult and hilarious choice.

I love all things Vice and after this interview with their magazine’s editor-in-chief I’m totally signing up for a subscription.

I have a hard time letting go when someone behaves in a way I find to be “rude.” Maybe I am expecting too much?

If you haven’t binge watched Netflix’s amazing new series Stranger Things, stop reading and go now. Trust me!

Odds and ends of writing combined to form a beautiful and uniquely written story.

Loving someone with depression and anxiety can be hard. I am grateful I have found that love.

Words can hurt so, so much. Please be careful how you wield them.

Death is not something that I have felt close to me. I fear death. Those two things might be related.

There are some kinds of pain I cannot even fathom.

There are some kinds of pain white people cannot fathomBonus: So I guess no one killed Freddie Gray.

I am a tortoise.

“Drawing from popular movies like ‘inception’ and ‘interstellar’ — surreal films where the laws of physics are turned on their head — ulatan creates cubic landscapes that ‘flatten’ views of natural and urban panoramas.”
