Web Time Wasters

How was your week, friends? I spent the weekend and Monday at my parents’ house, digging through bins of paraphernalia from my high school and college days. I unearthed soooo many mix cds and had The Best Time listening to them on the drive back to Minneapolis. Late 90s Ani DiFranco A+ would recommend will be listening to repeatedly.

Awesome things from a few of my lovely sponsors

A reminder we can probably all use: different does not equal broken.
I believed that the pattern of how my interests and passions have flowed throughout my life wasn’t okay, and that all this time I’ve been simply making it work despite my flaws.

Hope you had a great weekend, friends!
