Interweb Finds: Cats against feminism, why we blog & more

Golden West

How has your August been going?

Mine has been great—I visited home, wrapped up my summer class, am hosting my visiting BFF/college roomie here in L.A.—but it’s also kept me away from this space. I’ve been thinking a lot about priorities, which I think I could write a lot about. There’s a lot I’ve been wanting to write about, and I’ll be sharing those thoughts here soon.

But for now, interweb finds!

The story of the skydiver who saved a woman’s life by breaking her fall with his body.

My new favorite meme: confused cats against feminism.

Vintage photos of Ellen O’Neal, the greatest woman freestyle skateboarder in the ’70s. (And a cool documentary about skate and surf culture during the same decade.)

Allie’s post “Why I Blog” resonates with me because I’ve come to similar conclusions about why I blog. (Plus, I’m also digging the sneak peak of her upcoming ebook, “Charge Up,” an ebook for introverted entrepreneurs.)

You need to read Hannah’s words on the fragility of life.

I’m fascinated by personality types, which is why Erika’s “Beginner’s Guide to Personality Type Systems” is so interesting!

Jenny Lewis has a new album out (have you seen her sassy video for “Just One of the Guys”?), so I really enjoyed this interview with her about life after Rilo Kiley, stories from her childhood acting days and songwriting while dealing with insomnia.

 

That’s all for this week! I’ll be back with more soon. Until then, enjoy the start of your week.

  1. Rilo Kiley! Thank you! I couldn’t remember who her group act was.

    My August has been the worst on record. I am ready for it to be September.

      Looove me some Rilo Kiley. More Adventurous is my favorite album of theirs – check it out if you haven’t already.

      Bummer to hear about your August, but I hope September is a major improvement!

  2. Ha those kittens are so adorable – totally adopting one for Christmas 🙂 Glad you had a great summer! Enjoy what’s left and have a great one Cassie -Iva

  3. I hope you’re having an awesome time with your BFF/college roommate!! It must be so weird to go from living with someone and seeing them everyday, to potentially being on opposite sides of the country. I know my sister suffered from some shock and loneliness after graduation where she had to part with her roommates and golf team that she saw eeeeveryday.

    Still gutted we didn’t managed to catch up in LA, gah!

    • Cassie Paton says:

      I know, I so wish we were able to meet! Hopefully some day. 🙂

      It really was a strange adjustment not seeing each other all the time! Suddenly it was like, “We have to talk on the PHONE and update each other on our lives?!” Luckily, we’ve been pretty good about keeping in touch and can pick up right where we left off. Hopefully your sister will find the same is true for her!

  4. Test comment as requested! (Also, love cats against feminism.)
