Leave a Message After the Beep

Do you ever save voicemails?  I do.  A short and sweet message from the boyfriend, an encouraging voicemail from my mom, a quick fifteen second blurb from my best friend that is always sure to make me laugh when I need it most; I save all of my favorites.  This year for Valentine’s Day, CNN did a special project called “Love Story”.  They provided a phone number and asked people from all over to call in and leave a voicemail message about love.  The moment they met their soulmate, a chance encounter with a perfect stranger or even the one that got away.  Go check them out, I promise you won’t regret it.  What’s your most memorable love story?

Have a LOVE-ly Weekend

Happy (almost) weekend everyone!  It’s supposed to get pretty chilly around here so I plan to cozy up on my couch with large cups of coffee and persevere in the ever-daunting job search.  To all you employed folks out there, what were some helpful things you learned while you were on the hunt?  Any sage advice for me?  Here are some gems from the internet that I found this week.

These photos of Misty Copeland replicating Degas’ masterpieces are absolutely incredible.

Are you as completely and totally obsessed with the Netflix Original Series Making a Murderer as I am?  Part of me hopes that, for your sake, you aren’t BUT if you are here is just a handful of the totally hilarious parodies and memes the show has inspired.  (Which one is your favorite?)

I’m such a ‘UGE fan of Bad Lip Reading.  Here is one for the first Democratic debate and here is one for the first Republican debate.  I will truly never tire of these.

I wish I had seen this post earlier!  Next year I’m totally throwing a Galentine’s Day party even Leslie Knope would be impressed by.

Finally, a product that brings an end to the “I dunno, what do you want to do” conversation between you and your significant other.

This short little article and diagram on the effective weekend habits of successful people was really interesting.

So, this is one of the craziest/ coolest/ strangest/ sweetest things I’ve ever seen.

I’ve posted articles from The New York Times’ column, Modern Love before and I’m so excited to tell you that they now have a podcast!  Take a listen here.  

Are you going to show yourself some love and get yourself a little V-Day something?  I’m thinking of getting myself this or these.  Which do you think?

Have you seen the the new OK Go music video?  It’s kind of totally mind blowing.  (If you haven’t already seen it, here is another super cool video of theirs from a while back 2006.)

I hope you enjoy all of these.  Leave me some comments and let me know what you think.  No really, you should.  We can chat and be friends, it’ll be so great.  Have a happy weekend and, no matter how you spend it and who you spend it with, be good to yourself and to everyone else.  See you Monday!
