I actually have a good reason for not posting the last 2 Fridays: I broke my ankle and was busy elevating it. After almost 2 weeks away, I found myself with the same feelings I used to have before school would start each autumn: part of me wished the summer would never end but another part was always ready to get back to school. So, 3/4 of today’s links are about working because I guess I was antsy to get back to work:
“How I Work" series on Lifehacker: As you know by now, I’m nosy, so very, very nosy. I love interviews, lists of what people are reading, and “day in the life” series on blogs. I always click on “what’s in my bag” stories on beauty sites. (And if I’m at your house, there’s a good chance I’ll look in your medicine cabinet.) There’s no way I’m not reading every bit of this series because I really do want to know how your desk is set up, what apps you use, and whether you use a to-do list or not.
“What Career Should You Actually Have?" on BuzzFeed: I love this quiz because it gave me exactly the career I was hoping for. What career should you actually have?
“What I’ve Learned in a Year of Being My Own Boss" on Back to Her Roots: Do you dream of being your own boss? This blogger tells it straight from her experience.
Project Sewn, www.projectsewn.com: It’s a “4 week sewing competition comprised of 6 designer / seamstresses.” The first week just ended, but there’s time to catch up. The contestants are so creative! It’s a more accessible version of Project Runway!
