My favorite finds from around the web:
• Why I was wrong about liberal arts majors. “It’s very simple. A well-rounded liberal arts degree establishes a foundation of critical thinking.”
• What my father and I learned about each other by reading the same books. “We’ve found this time and time again: same book, completely different reactions.”
• The Simple Show episode 29: Summer Reading. Tsh and I talk all about our favorite topic to kick summer off right.
On the blog:
One year ago: The thirty-year rule. “I enjoyed so much of my summer reading, but after a while the steady diet of modern fiction took its toll. (Ironic, because I used to never read modern fiction. I didn’t know where to start, so I didn’t even try. Blogging has changed that.)”
Two years ago: Making a fresh start (and ditching my alarm clock). “I’ve had thirty-something years to assess my bad habits (or tendencies that direction) and know what I do when I’m stressed: I stay up too late, have to wake up early anyway, get really tired, and then I get sick.”
Three years ago: A three-hour tour. “Personality is also a factor: my husband is an introvert—though a sociable one, like me—and crowds are draining for both of us. Personality resists change.”
Four years ago: My (introverted) guide to surviving summer.
Have a great weekend!
