So, this week was awesome. Full of adventure, with me spending a few days working in DC, grabbing tacos and donuts with my husband on my first night home in Chicago, Navy Pier fireworks from our sofa and an entire Friday out of the office! How was your week? Hopefully fantastic and full of sunshine.
Five [Awesome] Things I Read This Week:
- From over at Vox (have you noticed Vox is really interesting lately?), I’m a liberal professor, and my liberal students terrify me by Edward Schlosser.
- From Heather Caliri at The Mudroom (you know I’m an editor there, and it’s awesome, right?), I thought I’d do a new friend a favor and not make friends at all.
- How Comedians Became Public Intellectuals, by Megan Garber for The Atlantic.
- Dan Diamond for Forbes with How Joe Biden Grieved – And Survived – His Family’s Darkest Chapter. Just, wow.
- The Surprising Advice Many People Need to Hear, by one of my long-time favorites Penelope Trunk.
And since it’s been a hot minute since we’ve done this, two extras for you:
Beauty Advice from Cup of Jo’s friend Gemma (I loved this one!), and The 27 Absolute Best Yearbook Quotes from the Class of 2015 from — you guessed it — Buzzfeed. I can’t remember having to submit yearbook quotes, but it has been about five million years since I was in high school. So, is this a thing now? Has it always been a thing? It seems to be a hilarious, terrible idea.
Have a fantastic weekend! Happy reading.
