Happy weekend everyone! Enjoy this week’s recommended reading roundup:
I know you’ve all probably already seen this/read about it/loved it, but in the off chance you missed it, read immediately. The Make a Wish Foundation and the city of San Francisco (11,000 people) got together to make Miles’s wish come true. This adorable 5 year old (whose leukemia is in remission) escapades around the city having a ball and fighting crime. It is beyond touching. Makes me miss SF!
The Essential Thanksgiving Guide from the NYTimes – So while I will not be preparing our Thanksgiving dinner (thank you mom and mom-in-law) in a few weeks, many of you out there are (or at least helping!). The NYTimes breaks it down for us and shares their best recipes for all of the Thanksgiving classics.
The Daily Muse shows off pretty funny (but also kind of depressing) Google autofills related to careers & the job search – sad! It doesn’t have to be this bad everyone!
Cupcakes & Cashmere (a blog I absolutely love) has started a career 101 column. This week Emily writes about mentorship and how she found her mentor. I think one of the most important points she makes is about the relationship beginning organically. Walking up to someone and asking them to be your mentor, isn’t generally going to result in anything productive. The most beneficial mentor/mentee relationship goes both ways (i.e. you have something to offer them too).
And lastly, another one of my favorite bloggers (Cup of Jo) shares her thoughts on stepping away from the iphone… and musing over how dependent she (we all) have become. I often think I am way too addicted to my phone and feel myself more tethered to it than ever. The cartoon below is the perfect example of how sad it is – “look at the picture I took of the thing we’re looking at” – ha!
Hope you enjoyed and have a great rest of the weekend everyone!
