5 Links I Loved This Week

When I find great posts, I just have to share them so others can learn from them too.

1. 5 Reasons Why I Vote (And You Should Too) by Lena Dunham

Let me just start by saying I love Lena Dunham and I’m obsessed with her. She’s a very strong woman and I love her political involvement. Voting is the process that makes a difference and it boils MY blood when people don’t vote. Read this post to view Lena’s opinions AND make sure you vote this November in these VERY important elections!

2. An intimate side of the Ebola crisis, taken via Instagram via One.org

We’ve all heard of the Ebola crisis, but for some it didn’t seem real until it hit the US. I read the Hot Zone in 8th grade… so I’m very familiar with Ebola and the terrible destruction it brings and just how truly awful it is. If you haven’t read up on it or the signs, get informed. These photos are just a couple of different looks at the current Ebola crisis.

3. People Went Crazy When Steve Jobs Demonstrated How Wi-Fi Works Back In 1999 via Business Insider

I love anything and everything to do with Apple and Steve Jobs. It was a real treat to travel back to 1999 when people really didn’t know what Wi-Fi was! Crazy to think, but crazier to see. Take a look!

4. Making a big change via Clarity On Fire

One of my favorite blogs to read! Sometimes I feel like a huge failure and it does spiral out of control. This post talks about how we should STOP unconsciously allowing oneĀ failure to say something about who you are as a person.

5. Good Lessons From a Bad Boss by Jeff Perkins

I’ve had some TERRIBLE bosses… and sometimes I learned more from them, and how I never want to treat people, over my awesome bosses. In this post, Jeff discusses the same things. Bad bosses don’t last forever and there are things you can learn from them along the way. Hang in there!

Anyone else find any good reads this week?
