this weekend i am:
checking out my final masala dosa place, movie night at avni’s, catching up on some sleep, watching this month’s documentary, and going for a long run. the slow, relaxing weekend i desperately need.
interesting things from around the interwebs:
my girl crush mihaela noroc recently published some of her photos from her trip to india last year, and they are awesome.
aziz ansari on how texting has changed the waiting game in relationships.
forest whitaker talks about his work with child soldiers and the initiative he has set up to end the practice.
read by famous allows you to buy books directly from celebrities who have read them, and all the proceeds go to literacy nonprofits. how cool is that?
pictures of barack and michelle obama being in love, because we all need some relationship goals to work toward.
audrey talks about the power of two-way storytelling. yet another fantastic and thought-provoking piece from a writer i love to follow.
the west wing predicted today’s supreme court dilemma twelve years ago. that was a great episode, too.
leo’s red carpet rampage is the best thing i’ve seen all week.
flora’s post about her recent visit to whitstable has me dreaming of the uk coastline journey i have been planning in the back of my mind for a few years.
an in-depth look at why rich chinese people are sending their children abroad at a young age. this was fascinating to me.
in case you missed it:
finally figuring out the art of reading multiple things at once. i’ve finished two books this week and have make solid progress through another two, so this method seems to be working out well for me.
