So, here’s the deal. With this whole job thing, I have far less time to sit around for hours trying to think about what to write about on my blog, and I feel like my days are full of stuff that’s way too boring to blog… So, I end up just reading more and writing less, and I end up posting links on Twitter and Facebook a lot. I have no idea whether this will be a isolated post or a gigantic series… but I thought it might be nice to recap the work week with links that I’ve found (and possibly previously shared) and if you have something to add, awesome!

I agreed with the author of Here Is Everything I Learned In New York City on every point except for one… which was New York City is a lonely place.

But hey… That’s just my experience, hers is equally valid and totally worth reading.

Just this morning, Fashion: Not Just For Girls caught my eye… The author is a straight male fashion blogger who often touches on what it’s like to be a gender minority in his field… and as someone who’s a gender minority in her field, I feel like I can often relate to him in that regard despite the fact that fashion and tech are pretty different industries.
Lessons at the School of Pole Dance over at Stratejoy made me think of my the pole dance lessons that I took and what I brought away from that experience. Despite the fact that I ultimately decided it wasn’t for me, it was a valuable side trip into self-discovery.
And finally… a video about sex by Ze Frank:
