my favourite photo from the week:
interesting things from around the interwebs:
i started college in 2000, but many of these “if you went to college in the ’90s….” still hold true for my classmates and me. especially the thursday-night-friends-night situation.
a look at the politics of time zones. i am weirdly obsessed with time zones, so these articles are always particularly fascinating for me.
passion passport is launching the passport express, a two-week cross-country amtrak adventure that sounds absolutely amazing. check it out for more details if you’re interested.
julie looks at the end of communism and what “rebuilding” has meant for those countries who were effected by it.
instead of hosting a large banquet for their wedding, a turkish couple donated that money to a soup kitchen which used it to feed over 4,000 syrian refugees.
a girl in missouri took her senior pictures at taco bell and just became my new hero. i didn’t take senior pictures, but if i had, i like to think i would have done something like this.
why email puts you in a bad mood. feels like the story of my life. i try really hard to be a segmentor, but it’s difficult when you work for a startup. something to work toward. and if it doesn’t work, i’ll just move to europe.
junior seau’s daughter wrote a beautiful speech for his induction into the nfl’s hall of fame. the league wouldn’t let her give the speech, so the nytimes recorded it. it made me cry.
and speaking of tears, these adoption day photos from together we rise to raise awareness of foster children is amazing.
huffington post’s top 50 cities to see in your lifetime. so far i have seen 8, so it looks like i’ve got my work cut out for me. although i have to say, i’m a little shocked jaipur was on the list and not bombay. that seems ridiculous to me.
a great read about the amazing musical history of memphis.
some amazing colour photographs of ireland that are over 100 years old.
the marines who took down the flag at the us embassy in cuba in 1961 are returning this year to raise it once again. thought that was a really cool story.
in case you missed it:
i’m still reminiscing about our street food adventures during ramzan.
note: i will be out of town next week for my cousin’s wedding, so things might be a little quiet around here. but i’ll be back as soon as i can!
