It was such a nice break from routine, and a great chance to spend some time with one of my best friends.
Tonight I’m headed to the Sox game with family and friends – I wouldn’t even call myself a fair-weather fan, I’m really in it for the social aspect (people-watching and overpriced beers). And tomorrow I’m excited to catch up with some friends from high school.
What’s on your schedule?
P.S. Here are a few of my favorite things from around the web this week:
Are you watching the Super Bowl on Sunday? If I’m being honest, I’ll probably catch the halfime show and fourth quarter. I don’t think I even qualify as a fairweather fan.. I’m really just using the game as an excuse to eat Superbowl snacks.
Here are some interesting links to browse while you (pretend to) watch the game…
What are you up to this weekend? Tonight I plan on watching this movie, and tomorrow my sister and I are going to a Sam Smith concert in Boston! (If you’re unfamiliar with Sam, or even if you only know a couple of his songs, his whole album is worth a listen.)
I’ve started the weekend on a wild note already by trying Starbucks’ new flat white drink. It’s apparently old news to Australians and hipsters, but in case you’re like me and haven’t heard of it before now, it’s similar to a latte but with extra foam and more caffeine – we’ll see if I still love it when I’m trying to fall asleep tonight.
Now for some links to take you through the weekend…
Let’s start with everyone’s favorite Jonas brother (you probably didn’t even know you had a favorite Jonas brother.. so, you’re welcome) and the gospel version of his top 40 hit, “Jealous”:
Here are some links to take you through the weekend to the short holiday week!
Do you read The Skimm? My girlfriends and I all agree that it’s the best way to start your morning. It’s a daily e-mail that summarizes need-to-know-news in a way that’s succinct, intelligent, and witty.
If you like irreverent facts, you’ll enjoy getting Dan Lewis’s newsletter “Now I Know” each morning, as well. In this recent email, Dan explains why you should never attempt a recipe for Swedish Lemon Angels…
I couldn’t hack pre-med but I love reading Think Like a Doctor from The New York Times Magazine.
In related medical mystery news, I just finished Brain on Fire by Susannah Cahalan. Susannah is a New York Post writer who came down with a life-threatening autoimmune disease in her early twenties that left her fighting to regain control of her brain and her sense of self. Now fully recovered, she writes a memoir that’s both fascinating and haunting.
