Happy Monday, and welcome back to the second installment of my bi-monthly series in which I share links that have inspired me, taught me something, or made me smile. Hopefully they’ll do the same for you :)
I don’t always cry while meditating, but when I do, it’s usually because I’m listening to Sarah Blondin. This one, called “Practicing Gentle Kindness toward Ourself” struck something deep.
Speaking of things that make me cry, this is YouTuber Jenn Im’s response to her teenage self’s diary entries.
Audrey Ember’s recreation of YouTuber Dan Mace’s intro sequence reminded me why I love video editing so much and inspired me to push myself creatively.
Apparently Ticketmaster has been accused of using its own scalpers to make more money. I’m upset but not surprised.
This tweet about work e-mails is kinda sad but also so funny and true.
My travel inspiration, Dianna Allen of Outglobing, started a YouTube channel! She has been sharing how she lives a slow-travel lifestyle and her video about the costs of living in Ho Chi Minh City definitely got my wanderlust going.
As I continue planning my gap year, I’ve been bookmarking so many resources (I think I’ll put together a blog post with my findings). Just Landed is a goldmine of information for expats going to pretty much any country in the world.
Ashley is a filmmaking GENIUS and the amount of effort she puts into every video blows me away. This back-to-school lookbook made me rethink the amount of days I just wear sweatshirts to school.
This is me in one text post (I drink so much water).
Jacob Laukaitis made a video about Lithuania and I think I’ll show this to everyone who asks me where I’m from and then looks confused when I tell them.
My friends and I had a little get-together to re-watch our BTS concert videos and make bibimbap together. It was the best time, and this recipe made it possible.
I’ve been searching through this site for workaway opportunities for my gap year (a workaway is where you do a job for someone in exchange for room and board, usually; like WWOOFing except it’s not just for farming!).
Learning Korean has been so fun and I’m glad I found a website that explains everything in amazing depth. I don’t like language learning tools that leave you guessing!
The Bangin’ Blog Business Plan workbook from Melyssa Griffin has been a savior. I feel like I have so much more focus with my blog now! (oh, and it’s free).
Hope you enjoyed! Share a link YOU love in the comments.
Happiest of Mondays,
