It's been a while since I posted links, and I've been collecting them on and off... and while I know most of these will go unseen, my photo-a-day has gone on hiatus so why not?
In no particular order...
Why you should move to a new city where you don't know a single soul - I've done this twice now, and each time it has dramatically broadened my views and influenced who I am now. Honestly too few people move around when they have the capacity to.

Stop trying to be happy - in a nutshell, happiness is the journey, something I am only just starting to understand
Examples of Myers-Briggs Personalities in Stories - for fun, if you want to relate to a TV character with your Myers Briggs type. I'm like Knuckles from Sonic the Hedgehog, lol.
Game of Thrones, Tyrion and Sansa on tumblr - a couple seasons old, but I still really this
New York City vs. San Francisco - because West coast culture is very similar to SF, I totally understand these. Also check out part 1
Ready for Rain: Why Seattleites crave the end of summer - more relevant in October, but with summer approaching I am already looking forward to October...
This for That: A guide to cooking and baking substitutes - must keep handy for when I bake/cook
