    Great weekly round of discoveries. 🙂 I enjoyed reading / viewing them all, however the tips on how to make a good impression stood out for me as I’m not the most confident person. Thanks so much!

  2. Anna Kaplan

    Cool video! Love the producers, big fan of the show Jimmy Kimmel Live, and really despise this Trump character. So I enjoyed watching it. Very sarcastic, and genius work. I applause them. 🙂

    • Danielle Wilson

      ?? omg! I knowwww! it IS genius!! So brilliantly done! I wish they’d make an actual series out of this. I know I would watch, even though I hate politics!

  3. Sydney Nowak

    Body may age, beauty may fade, but the only thing that matters is your soul. The article on Feminist Current really hit the spot. I’ll be following their blog, hoping to see more articles like that.

  4. Emily Wentz

    Inspirational reads. Thanks so much for taking the time to share these with us. As always, great job.

  5. Lynn Hayes

    Can’t express how happy I am that you shared this article about how to make a good impression, as I have a job interview on Monday!

    These are really so helpful, they’re going to help me a bunch when making first impressions during job interviews! Looks like there is lots to learn about making a good first impression. 🙂

  6. Catherine White

    Very well written and suprisingly helpful advice from The Entrepreneur. These tips could be used for social life too. I’m going to try to implement them next time I’m out and about. Hopefully I won’t be my usual bumbling, awkward self lol o.O

  7. Emma Blackwood

    Why is Donald Trump everywhere? We need to stop giving him publicity. We shouldn’t even acknowledge him. That’s where he’s getting his power from. I really hope he doesn’t get elected.

  8. Kaitlyn Barrett

    Amazing tips on how to make a good impression. I think it is such a helpful article. Good advice even for an out going person like myself!

  9. Camila Hilhorst

    Such an insightful article from Feminist Current. Ageing is tough. It is especially so, for those that may not have accomplished goals or have not obtained self respect through their jobs or actions.

    • Nicky Bryan

      Very much enjoyed this week’s discoveries. Really touched by Lori Day’s article. Beautifully written! There’s still a long way til I can say I’m aging, but when I do, I will strive to be a strong, capable wise old person, but will always miss, just a little bit, the way a group of men opened up their conversational circle when I approached. 🙂

  10. Pamela Sanabria

    I love the New York Facts! 😀 My brother lives in Brooklyn. One thing I didn’t know was how ridiculously easy it is to ride around. The Red Hook area looked like it was undergoing a bit of a makeover too.

  11. Sabrina Grattidge

    Gotta love how confident BuzzFeed is that we don’t know these things about New York. Those facts have been all over the internet for years.

    Regardless, great job putting all these aritcles together in one post. They’re all geniunely interesting.

  12. Kim Hartford

    Great advice from Lori Day! With physical change we must also accept a change in our perspective to truly adapt and continue to grow. I would love to see us- Americans- become more accepting of the aging process. Starting with Hollywood. In other countries I notice women are much more accepting of the aging process.

  13. Susanna Milton

    Nice finds! Making a good first impression is incredibly important, because you only get one shot at it.

  14. Evelyn Sandler

    Amazing discoveries. Especially loving the one about aging. I believe she is right when she said that aging concerns are usually a symptom of fears and feelings about deeper issues. If we take the time to acknowledge and explore these fears, perhaps aging will become less of a concern. I find it interesting though that this is more of a problem with women than with men!

  15. Sasha Rosswell

    It is indeed very important to make a good first impression. In our day, even a good impression isn’t enough. You have to make a GREAT impression to have a better chance than the other candidates.

  16. Melissa Princeton

    There actually is a Trump movie! It’s called “You’ve Been Trumped”in the genre of documentary, released in 2011. With 6 award wins and 2 nominations. It’s worth a watch. Still accurate even though it was done 5 years ago.

  17. I’m hitting 30 soon, and I’m actually quite happy with things. Sure, I don’t look like I did when I was 20. But I exercise, try to eat well and I still enjoy friends, family and activities. It’s a cliche, but it’s also true. Age is just a number. We can overanalyze that number or just accept that numbers tend to keep going up!

    • Dana Rosatti

      I think too that people who want to stay young forever have difficulties to grow and accept who they are and often get disappointed when surgery does not bring them happiness or love they expect because their look is not the real issue, the problem is in their mind.

  18. “We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.” I constantly remind myself of this.

    Fantastic collection, Urbanette! You made a life 🙂

  19. Francis Woods

    OMG!!! I really love your Friday series!!! Always great set of articles!!!

    I find the 6 ways to make a great impression applicable not just to career (or job-hunting) but to “dating” as well… LOL 😉

  20. Jessie Williams

    Hah! After reading the 60 things about NYC, it made more sense to me why there are so many crime drama shows in NYC. I’ve only been to NYC in passing, but haven’t really visited. Interesting!

  21. I’m particularly moved by the article on aging. I’m definitely enjoying my age and do not fee the least. I don’t feel invisible to others, less heard, less acknowledged or less influential than years ago. I think it’s because I’m confident, engaged in life and have kept my interest in others.

    • Gabby Williams

      Same here. I liked that article on aging! Eventually we all get older. I came to a point when I was anxious of my changing body and skin– my pregnancy, continuous addition of numbers to my age. But when I finally realized and accepted what’s happening, that’s when life became less stressful! Now, I’m happier, I feel young because I stay active!

  22. Michelle Luedtke

    Cool and interesting stuff. I’m overwhelmed with thought-provoking facts!

  23. Hannah Mayers

    Great tips on making a great first impression! Particularly helpful to young ones starting with their career.

  24. Janelle Fox

    I’m amazed with your compilation! I’ve been living in NYC my entire life and I knew a good portion of that 60 “things.” The ones I didn’t know are pretty cool!

  25. Oh Wow. Thats a pretty good collection. The one with 60 things about NYC is awesome. Truly very interesting facts.

  26. I love the Trump video! Hilarious (and scary!)

  27. Great collection! That video is really interesting too. Here’s a video for next week: https://youtu.be/dHQog4e2fsM

  28. This is worth sharing – very touching:
