Good good links #189

Would it be very wrong to start this post saying how much I despise [finicky] technology at times? Because a) I really do and b) it’s the main reason you haven’t seen any new posts on here lately. Two drafts ready to publish, plans nixed by either the internet or my laptop crashing on me. [Insert as many swearwords as you can think of here].

Today, however, is not the day to complain about but cherish the amazing ability of the internet in allowing us to find great posts by many wonderfully creative people all over the world. Without further ado, here are some of my recent favourites for your [Sunday or whenever you see this] reading pleasure.

    Your blog has one of my favorite link round-ups! Such interesting reads. I loved the ones from Robyn and Emmie especially. ❤
    I saw the Ben & Jerry's one a while ago. Oh my gosh. The sass. But seriously. So disappointed in my country right now. 😦

  2. Evangeline Kennedy says:

    The title of the article from Ben and Jerry’s made my heart rate skyrocket for about 2.3 seconds until I started reading. Feelin’ a little embarrassed of my homeland right now. The tortilla bake from the Vegan 8 is dangerous. I know you warned me, but I clicked. I even watched the video. Now I need some, like yesterday.

    So I was talking to my dad on the phone yesterday. They, too (much experienced by me when I was home the other week) have AWFUL internet connection. And, to which, I definitely complained about. They’ve been trying to get it fixed and he was just recently on the phone with a man from the USA who was trying to hep them. My dad told him how slow it was for them, to which the man replied, “yeah…. but I bet you live in a beautiful part of the world,” ….. my dad told me this and we were both like, “Hmm. Well shucks ain’t he right?” The man raised a good point Its amazing how reliant on technology we become.

    Still though, that being said, technology woes really suck.

    These links do not though! I need to catch up!

    Boo to technology being a pain in the behind. But all the yes to these links! That apology article! Definitely something I am trying to work on in my own life. I particularly like the reframing ‘I’m sorry’ to ‘Thank You’ technique because it also allows me to practice gratitude.
    I also really want to learn to leave boxes unchecked more literally on my to-do list. You know you’re a perfectionist when you have to work on leaving things undone… Siiigh
