Sing It Out Sunday: International Women’s Day
Happy International Women’s Day!
Here’s what I’ve been reading this week:
- Karen Wickre explains how to “Get into Tech” if you don’t fulfill the stereotype. Her advice is good for anyone in today’s working world, though, especially the parts about curiosity and flexibility.
- The photo at the right is one of a delightful series from Russian photographer Vadim Trunov
- Author Maureen Johnson provides excellent advice in response to the question, “How do I human?“
- The amount of thought behind Chris Evans’ portrayal of Captain America is just so fantastic, and is why he is currently my favorite Avenger (though I must admit Thor is still my favorite of all the Avengers movies so far – sorry, Chris! Evans, that is. Not Hemsworth. Yey Chris Hemsworth! And yey Chris Pratt, just to round it out. Yey all the Chrises!)
- Mental Floss explores six different witch archetypes around the world (though I have to admit I have a problem with #2 as it does not describe a type of witch, but a symptom of people being afraid of women unjustly)
- The Guardian’s discussion of Sarah Manguso’s new book, Ongoingness: The End of a Diary has me wanting to dive back into my undergrad thesis on the evolution of diaries and anonymous/pseudonymous blogs, starting with picking up a copy of that book!
- Alexandre Dumas’ Chateau de Monte-Cristo needs donations to stop it from completely falling apart
- Jen (of Cake Wrecks fame) rejoices in finding her “people”: enthusiastic, kind, and altogether wonderful geeks
- Am I the last one to discover that TOM HANKS starred in Carly Rae Jepson’s newest music video?!
