Another week has gone by with its usual highs and lows. This week though, the highs were a little higher than normal and the lows a little tougher. Some of the highs include my first pitch being accepted and Instagram putting me on their suggested user list. The lows I don't need to get in to on here, we all have our issues to deal with, but they serve to remind me that: a) there are always bumps in the road, b) no-one else should be able to control how I feel and c) writing everything down in a journal is incredibly therapeutic. Emotions aside, it has been a great week: I've spent some nice time with JB, received supportive and celebratory texts from friends, conquered my cough with some homeopathic syrup and bought my first Margaret Atwood book to read (Cat's Eye). What about you guys? I'd love to hear what you have been up to.
Here is a selection of what I have seen around the internet this week.
A week in the food life of Joy the Baker (Grub Street). I also checked out Lauren Graham's whilst I was on the site, do any of you watch Parenthood?
Vint Cerf (Google) talks about the risk of us losing our digitised material (The Guardian).
Cara, from Peonies and Polaroids, talks about leaving London behind. Sometimes the best laid plans just don't work out and that's OK. Scary but OK.
The British accent has been crowned the sexiest. (The Telegraph) The only question is, which regional accent are they talking about???
Eighteen glorious moments from Monty Python and the Holy Grail (Buzzfeed). Just because Monty Python always makes me laugh!
David Carr discusses Brian Williams and Jon Stewart's common ground (NY Times). RIP David, you will be missed.
This is all mostly a combination of what I post or RT on Twitter - you can follow me here.
