Friday Feels

Hello friends! Happy almost November! Are you ready for November? Are you panicking like I am? I had so much I wanted to do this year and still a lot of it left to accomplish! Oy. So this weekend I plan on catching my breath with Sugarface and doing something that makes us happy. Maybe a hike with the dogs? And I have a barbecue festival to attend. The joys of being a food blogger! What do you have going on this weekend? What have you been reading?

It’s been a bit since my last link round-up of Internet pieces that made me feel feelings. Some of these links I’ve had in my pocket for a few weeks. Enjoy and happy Friyay!

  • How to be a writer.
  • I finished a few good books since the last round-up. Goldfinch was an great read.
  • When Breath Becomes Air and Blankets were also enjoyable reads.
  • I started reading The Nest and Love Warrior this week.
  • There’s been a lot of race thoughts and discussions amongst my circle. There’s this open letter. And our podcast discussed Code Switch, an NPR podcast. (episode isn’t live yet).
  • Ruth Bader’s Ginsburgs advice for living.
  • At every stage of life, you should be a rookie at something.”
  • Dear Michelle Obama

  • Roxanne Gay’s 13 rules for Female Friendship.
  • Kim Kardashian, Elena Ferrante, and the right to privacy.

      That job type by personality is awesome. Phil would agree that I would be a great probation officer because I am ALL ABOUT rules. :) Accountant is also on the list which is a career path I considered.

      I’ll be curious to see what you think of The Nest. I haven’t read it as I’ve heard mixed reviews, but it’s on my request list at the library.

      • It had Sugarface down pact. He is a microbiologist!

        So far Nest is a breezy and engaging read. I look forward to having time to read it!
