How was you week, guys? We spent most of the week in Wisconsin poking around supper clubs and weird roadside attractions and it was perrrfect. (You can see all the photos on Instagram!)
We don’t have many Network of Nice offers/requests for this month, so I’ll just mashing them in here 🙂
I’d love to hear from people who have moved overseas to live and work
Specifically, I plan to move from Australia to the USA in the next few years. My areas of expertise are communication, policy, government, and the non-government sector. By the time I move, I’ll have a Masters in Communication. Share your secrets about job and apartment hunting, and appropriate visas, etc with me? I am interested in all the practicalities involved in making a big international move happen.

The only difference between people who do things and people who don’t is the people who do things, do things. That’s it. No one has a special motivation gland they were born with.
How would chefs doctor up a frozen pizza?
Ooooh! Such a good before/after! And changes that most of us normal, vaguely-handy people could do!
An important read: I’m not pretty and I’m fine with that.
Apparently nothing else mattered. My intelligence, my passion, my work ethic, how I treat those around me, who I am as a person – they weren’t interested in finding that out, because I don’t match up to the standard of prettiness they require from a woman.

I want to be clear, Man On The Web Who Was Moved To Write To Me to Inquire About My Weight, that I know I’m deeply flawed. Sometimes I’m rude and nasty and unethical and selfish and all those ugly things. None of what I’m about to tell you makes me a victim. Some of what I’m about to tell you makes me a survivor. All of it is human and real and imperfect. Just like me. And like you!

A sweet story about a single man who, at age 54, decided to become a dad for the first time.
Fascinating! Famous last meal requests. I’d want cheese ravioli, peas, cheap garlic bread and a chocolate dessert.
Wedding readings from literature! (That one from The Velveteen Rabbit is a doozy.)
