Friday Pix: Recommended Reading For The Weekend

writing

writingOn occasional Fridays, I point you towards some recommended reading around the blogosphere:

a. At my 17 year-old’s urging, I’ve recently gone back and started listening to This American Life. For all those wanna-be adults out there, have a listen to this episode entitled, It’ll Make Sense When You’re Older.

b. I’ve long been a fan of the long-form essay site Full Grown People. Divorce stories are often fairly grim, but this one about how a couple told their kids that they were separating offered a lot of hope.

c. As a huge proponent of personality tests, I really enjoyed this tongue-in-cheek take on the Myers Briggs test over at McSweeneys.

d. For all those of you planning to travel abroad this summer, be sure to first consult this set of rude hand gestures of the world so that you don’t get off on the wrong foot.

e. I also loved this smack down of the ideal writer’s life over on Lit Hub.

f. And speaking of literature, for all you aspiring writers out there who have great material from your own lives but don’t want to write a memoir, I highly recommend this FREE (!) course by Jess Loury, Rewrite Your Life. I’ve started doing it and the exercises are fantastic.

Have a great weekend!

Friday Pix: Some Recommended Reading For The Weekend

myers briggsOn occasional Fridays, I point you towards some recommended reading around the blogosphere:

a. As a long-time This American Life fan, I found this piece by Ira Glass about the death of a grown-up friend very moving.

b. A friend sent through a terrific-looking list of books about growth in middle age. I can’t wait to dive in.

c. If you like taking personality tests and especially Myers-Briggs, you will love this piece on the definition of hell for each Myers-Briggs type. Calling all fellow ENTJs!

d. And speaking of middle age, anyone who is a Simon & Garfunkle fan will relish this recent and unexpected reunion of Simon and Garfunkle.

e. If, in contrast, your tastes run more towards The Wire, try prying yourself away from this new game: Where’s Wallace?

f. Finally, in lighter fare, The Buzz Feed has some fun recirculating the response to President Trump’s accidentally tweeting the word “We.”

Have a great weekend!
