Happy Derby Day! If you’re not in Kentucky I know you don’t care, but trust me when I say this is a BIG DEAL where I live.
My favorite finds from around the web:
• Advice for the recent graduate. 5 things you can do right now that will make your life better and won’t cost you much. Good stuff from Austin Kleon, like this: “School can burn you out on reading because you’ve been stuck reading a ton of books you didn’t choose for yourself. Now’s the time to jump in and fall in love again, by reading the stuff you actually want to read.”
• Reading is forgetting. “Only on a third or fourth reading, he claims, do we start behaving toward a book as we would toward a painting, holding it all in the mind at once.”
• 9 summer trends. No, surprisingly maybe, yes, no, yes, yes, yes, yes, probably not.
• The other side of Anne of Green Gables. “Viewers familiar with the books and previous adaptations may feel when watching “Anne With an E” that the emphasis is on the wrong syllable, while also finding something provoking and substantive in the new pronunciation. Walley-Beckett’s series is recognizably “Anne of Green Gables,” but with a grimmer feel.”
Isn’t she dreamy? I’m in love with our new Modern Mrs Darcy bookmarks, now in the shop. Currently available as add-ons to journal kits and accessory kits; soon to be listed solo. (Follow me on instagram @annebogel.)
On the blog:
Two years ago: MBTI : strengths :: Enneagram : motivations. “A common question is this: If I only have the headspace to learn about one personality paradigm, which one should it be: MBTI or the enneagram? My answer: It depends.”
Three years ago: Kitchen tools I wouldn’t mind getting (or giving) for Mother’s Day.
Four years ago: Fictional mothers we love to hate.
Have a great weekend!
