This week went by so damn fast, despite the fact I thought both Wednesday and Thursday were Friday. Maintaining 48 hours of pure calendar confusion is a talent sponsored by my exceptionally low iron levels.
Two days ago, I inherited my great-grandparents dining room table, thanks to my grandma’s recent remodel of her kitchen. I had to shuffle a bunch of stuff around to fit it: what was my dining-room-dressed-up-as-an-office is now just a dining room. I’m not mad about it, really.
The whole thing triggered a new round of Googling and Pinterest. The table is just a table, which means I need some chairs. I’ve got these ones in mind, but if a set of nice mid-century chairs come into my life somehow, I’m not gonna say no.

⏃ Stop Taking Pride In Not Knowing How To Do Basic Shit — Like, you do you, but if I could print a thousand copies of this article and hand it out to every girl who thinks it’s cute to be hahaha soooooooo helpless, I would.
⏃ Comedian Iliza Shlesinger Has a Message for Male Feminists (and Haters) — I CANNOT WAIT FOR HER NEW NETFLIX SPECIAL, and this quote is so real:
I think a lot of women like to use feminism as a way to rally women behind “girl power.” But I wonder if people live it day-to-day. I know that I do.

⏃ Rise and Scam: Joanne the Scammer lives for drama. Branden Miller is just trying to live. — Joanne is me. I am Joanne. Spiritually, anyway. Branden Miller seems like a legit dude and I wish him all the success in the world. Truly. Honestly.
⏃ How I Came To Understand My Adult ADHD — You know when you read an article and you think to yourself, shit, that’s ME. That was my experience reading this post on Adult ADHD:
When I asked how this was possible, my doctor-friend hit the nail on the head without looking up from her menu: “You were performing well, so no one asked you how you felt.”
⏃ Found Photographs of Perfect American Road Trips, Fifty Years Too Late — I have such a boner for retro Americana, especially from the 1940s and 1950s (see: recent obsession with Captain America), so this pictorial hit all my buttons.
