Web Time Wasters!

While I’m in Mexico for three weeks (I know.  Weep for me, right?) I’ve asked some of my internet friends to share their favorite links of the week!


I’m Kam (@CampfireChic) and I write about trying new things, self-care, and being brave. Sarah’s web time wasters is one of my favorite link roundups and when she asked me to help curate this week’s post, I was excited to get started. I won’t waste any more of your time on me, this about the links!

So…those links…

I’m a little poked up at how gigglemug-ed I got over this list of Victorian slang terms

Let’s work here.

And I’ll wear this cardigan. Because, reasons.

While I will chase a perfect burrito to the ends of the earth, I’m not sure how I feel about this. Even if they use cage free eggs.

Is TL;DR robbing us of enjoyment? I mean, I could tell you that Sarah wrote some hilariously snarky copy for an online shop selling dapper clothing for toddlers and you’d think, that is so Sarah!” but if you didn’t take a second to read the actual descriptions, you would be totally missing out on how amazing the whole thing really is.

I don’t have baby fever and other things I (as a woman) shouldn’t have to justify.

2. How little or much they’re eating, especially if it’s “unhealthy.” You can eat a big lunch without having to say “I haven’t eaten anything all day” or have some delicious ass nachos without saying “I totally deserve this, I was so good this week, I’ll start the diet again tomorrow.” More importantly, you shouldn’t have to always be interrogated with “that’s all you’re having?” or “you’re going to eat all that?!”

Just another reason to love California.
Get in the van. We’re outta here.

I traveled well over 35,000 miles across the country, exploring 26 states (two by plane/train – hello, New York and New Jersey!), and even popping up into Canada for a few weeks. I slept in barren deserts, snowy mountains, forests thick with mossy trees, and on the side of busy streets in big cities. I have seen and done more in this year than many people will accomplish in a lifetime. I am incredibly lucky – and incredibly broke.
But every moment, every victorious climbing send, every piece of all-you-can-eat-sushi in Vancouver, every exploding tire on the interstate, and every I’ve-been-wearing-the-same-shirt-for-a-week realization have been 100% worth it. My savings account might make me cry a little when I look at it, but I have no regrets. I am richer now than I have ever been.


And finally – It’s that time of the year when our resolutions, goals, and good intentions are tested. I want to leave you with one of my favorite quotes from Walt Disney: The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.
