Linkage: Unplugged Weekend Edition

A night for reading This week is going to be relatively light because I have been trying a little “unplugged” experiment since Friday…. Ok, ok — truthfully I finally cracked open and have gotten way into Chris Moore’s new book Sacre Bleu. After finding a new place to get a good cup of joe and read this afternoon, I’m anxious to head to a new pub with hopes to do the same.

And meaningful.” I personally am thankful every day that I have found these communities that are changing the world:

Joel retweeted out his thoughts on the difference between a bucket list and an “impossible” list (which was the inspiration for my journey list. The whole thing is good but particularly this: The purpose is to stretch yourself to do things you never thought possible, regardless of other people’s opinions on the topic.

And if you’re like me, you might be looking for more kick ass women to follow online.


Google has revamped their search protocols again, trying to make it more communal and relative.
