Halfway There!

It's Wednesday, which means only two more days until the weekend! If your week's been dragging like mine has, here are a few fun links to get you over the hump. DS-Phone-backgroundfinal

This waiter for the homeless really warmed my heart. Kickstarter recently passed $1 billion in pledges! These 17 things you start doing when you get an office job couldn't be more spot-on. This woman gives one of the most riveting TED talks I've heard. Are you better at science than the average American? How to kill an entire afternoon at work without actually getting anything done.

Happy Friday! Everyone take a deep breath, the weekend is FINALLY here. It's been a pretty busy (and expensive) couple of weeks for me, and it doesn't look like that's going to change for at least a couple more. Btw—tires are the second least fun thing to spend money on in the entire world, right behind taxes. If you're feeling the stress like I am, or if you're counting down the hours until the weekend, here are a few things to take your mind off it. Enjoy!

I'm generally not a fan of his movies, but this makes me love Seth Rogan. Way to play with my emotions, guys. A simple (& surprisingly interesting) formula for finding your "model name." Mine's Ori Jaune. Tre chic! This makes a really good point about gender-centric baby showers. Babies and puppies! Eeek!

Gift It: Valentine's Day

Happy Monday, everyone! Today starts the last week of January, and the internet has already exploded with Valentine's Day madness. J and I aren't big celebrators of this day, mostly because we have several other "more important" holidays that follow close behind (birthdays and our anniversary, I mean). Because we'll be so far apart this year, and because he'll be coming to visit for his birthday/spring break in a month or so, J and I have decided to save our money and energy and not celebrate at all this year (not including a phone call or Skype chat, I'm sure). Nonetheless, it's hard not to love all the red and pink gorgeousness floating around the stores lately, so I've put together a few (budget-friendly) suggestions for gifts for the ladies. And yes, buying yourself a gift for Valentine's Day totally counts. Enjoy! (:
