Friday Reading: Part 4
What are you up to this weekend? I'm still not sure of our plans (we are often forced to plan at the last minute due to work) but I know many people who are heading into the wilderness for the serenity of camping or a cottage. The picture (above) was taken on one of our favourite camping trips last summer. Sorry for the iPhone quality. :S
For those who are staying in town, after the important step towards equality that was taken by our neighbours in the US, this will probably be a landmark year to join in some Pride Week festivities.
Wishing you all a fantastic long weekend! Wish Barkley luck... he HATES the fireworks! :(
Enjoy these interesting sites from around the web:
I love this idea! Let's hope it catches on in Toronto!
This eco-friendly Coca Cola bottle looks refreshing! Corey argued that it's not eco-friendly because of all the clean water used to make the bottles. I argued that, in Canada, we use clean water to flush our toilets... which brought us back to the Sink Positive debate.
This essay on how a daughter learns whether to love or hate her body by listening to her mother almost brought me to tears. This is true for all of us to some degree. I remember my mother pretending not to be afraid of spiders so she wouldn't pass on her fear to me... It was a good try.
The time we have left... represented by jellybeans, was a little sad, but quite interesting.
Common financial mistakes you make in your twenties. This is a great article to read. How many did you make?
10 old-school things that make summer SUMMER!
Watch as this teacher shows her third graders what discrimination really means. At first, I thought this was horrible, but I was amazed by how much these children comprehended and that they were able to make the connection between different kinds of discrimination.
What would it look like to be inside a box filled with mirrors? Random but very cool.
This product really looks like magic in a can! <= Note from Corey: I watched this video and became obsessed!!! Taylor had to tell me to stop watching since I just kept restarting it. I NEED THIS!!!
Way to go, Wendy Davis. If you haven't heard of her, watch this video of her speaking for 13 hours to filibuster an anti-abortion bill in Texas.
Read these books before the movies come out and the endings are spoiled. I always hate reading a book after I see the film because, instead of using my imagination, all I can picture are the actors.
And finally, this book looks interesting: Confessions of a Sociopath. I'm looking for some summer books because nothing makes me feel more summer-y than reading a good book outdoors!
