Weekend Reading

hi friends! How was your week? I've been doing a lot of adulting lately (talking to the bank and ordering blinds and filling out forms and registering for classes and applying for jobs and internships and ... things), so I'm looking forward to some nephew time this weekend (because 11-month-olds have no patience for silly paperwork) and walking over to the annual town carnival/festival/thingie.

So, perhaps with your weekend you wanna do some reading? Here's what I've liked of late:

The Economy of You by Kimberly Palmer - definitely worth a read if you're interested in a side gig/multiple income streams

Generous Hearts & Social Media Shaming - a post about empathy on the internet (and in life)

My research fail

Amazing looking chocolate chip cookies.

A podcast from a former classmate, Lauren Fadeley about her move from Pennsylvania Ballet to Miami City Ballet

Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain. Not super new anymore (2008), but definitely motivational and a nice change from "exercising makes your body healthier"

Related: Could Thinking Positively About Aging Be the Secret of Health?

I've been binge reading this series by Estelle Ryan featuring a smart, strong leading lady whose hyper-analytical brain helps save art (and people. and the world, really)

Me, in the career development world

Have you read/seen/listened to anything noteworthy lately? Tell me more, tell me more!
Have a great weekend!

  1. You might enjoy The Confidence Code by Katty Kay. She is a BBC announcer in Washington DC. I don't remember ther coauthors name. They explore women's lack of self confidence from many perspectives from DNA to brain waves. Our AAUW book group enjoyed it.
