Saturday Reads

2014 April 12


At Coachella this weekend?! Nah, me neither. I much prefer to stay home and listen to the Frozen soundtrack over and over…so if you’re in the same boat as me and living the festival life vicariously through your Instagram all weekend, here are some other links to check out while you’re online:

A powerful post about the one thing parents should be worrying about…and often don’t.

How to make Montreal-style bagels via Bleubird. I am a native Montrealer and I can assure you that no one makes a better bagel. No one. Making them at home seems a little wrong to me, but if you want to try it, here’s how. I think I will just save my cravings for my trips back home – Fairmont and St. Viateur are the places to go if you’re ever in the area.

How to save the battery on your iPhone from dying so quickly. This one is a find from my husband who was getting annoyed with my constant complaining about my phone’s battery life.

Some of the most incredible images you will ever see. The one with the small child looking into the police man’s shield got me right in the heart. Amazing photos.

And finally, 10 Reasons You Have to Quit Your Job in 2014. This is a big one, lots to absorb here, lots to agree with and lots to make you think. I quit my job in 2008 and have managed to keep a healthy, thriving consultancy business going ever since. Can I say I never ever look back? No. Do I have moments where I wish I had stayed in the “system” and kept gliding up that corporate ladder alongside my colleagues? Yes. Do I have days where I want to quit on myself and just go back to working for someone else? Yep. But was it all worth it? Absolutely.

Happy Saturday!

    Ugh that “one of five” statistic haunts me all the time when I’m walking around DC, even in my “safe” neighborhood. Have you heard of Tindr? It’a “hookup” app that’s pretty popular in DC and NYC. You swipe through photos of people within a certain radius of your location, and mutual swipes can communicate to meet and hookup. I’m not one for online dating/courtship, but this is one I could especially not get on board with. There’s nothing wrong with a woman taking her sexuality in her own hands, but “one of five” pretty much ensures meeting up with a stranger like this might not be a good idea…
