    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!

    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. 🙂

    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.

    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. 🙂

    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

    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.

    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.

      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. 🙂

    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.
