In Life

001: Had a pretty stressful week worrying about my future, but sat
down, got productive, and made some definitive plans for the next few months.
002: Currently in Austria on a sky trip with friends. But don’t be fooled, folks, I am a total beginner so most of my time will be spent falling on my arse for the next few days.

On the web

001: Refugees native to the US in desperate need of relocation due to the changing climate? Yes, it’s a real thing and it has already happened.
002: Loving CoCorrina’s post about lessons learned while freelancing.
003: J.K Rowling will be publishing Harry Potter Part 8, you say?! Hell yes. (Originally mentioned on Colette’s link round up)
004: Khoi Vinh sure knows how to curate a great set of images.
005: These stunning photos of Saint-Emilion
006: How do we prevent future robots from taking over the world and wiping out the human population? Read to them, of course!
007: Did you know you can now Rent Van Gogh’s famous bedroom for just nine dollars a night on airbnb? SIGN ME UP IMMEDIATELY.
