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.
