Weekly Reads, Vol. 28

I am about seven hours away from 24 hours of total freedom.  OK, so I plan to get a run in during that time and Skype with one of my best friends, but ... it's 24 hours without work.  And honestly, the end of that 24 hours is a staff meeting at my brewery job, which basically means just listening and talking while drinking a beer.  I can handle that.  After 20 consecutive days of working, that will be a piece of cake.

Christy at Planes, Trains and Running Shoes wrote about how she would change Major League Baseball.  I don't disagree with all of her ideas.

Here are two more gems from Rena that really resonated with me this week as I've been feeling very contemplative and analyzing my life.  Expectations are what lead to the majority of my disappointment -- in things, people, and situations.  I need to learn to temper them a little more. I am also guilty of being my own worst critic.

I'm currently experiencing the second wave of marriage for a lot of my friends. Not that they're getting married a second time (though some are), but the "late bloomers" are making their way down the aisle. Registering for gifts is always tricky for these folks because there are a lot of things they don't really need. Nadine at East & is apparently feeling a little of this too in her post, "10 Things I'd Like to Register For But Won't." Hey, I'd use a toilet paper subscription service way more often than a fancy dining set.

If you need a laugh, please go check out "Your Most Embarrassing Confessions" at The Daily Tay. She encouraged people to share their mortifying moments anonymously, so the comments are as gold as the main post. Enjoy!

So, this wasn't in my blog reader, and I posted about it Tuesday, but in case you missed it, please read "How to Love a Girl Who's Guarded" on Thought Catalog. It sums me up so well.


  1. Thanks for sharing my post! I loved reading some of these other ones!

  2. Great posts. And those comments on Tay's post really WERE gold!

  3. Ouch - 20 hours of non-stop work? That sounds completely exhausting :(
    Enjoy your 24 hours!
