Happy Thursday! Been busy as a bumblebee over here but that doesn’t mean I have nothing to share. For YOU? My wonderful readers? I share love… and the following links, which may or may not suit your Thursday needs, wishes, or desires, but nevertheless are here for you to click and peruse at your leisure.
Away we go!
1. What they don’t tell you at graduation, via the Wall Street Journal
Commencement speeches are meant to be inspiring. But this? Is the real deal. Read it and get yourself back in the game of life.
2. The Playboy Club Bunny Manual, via The Selvedge Yard
A scanned (and scannable!) copy of the original manual from way back when, including info on Bunny Council Meetings and how to avoid getting demerits. Worth a retro read
3. Magnetic implants to attach your iPod to your arm? Why not? Via Geekologie
Also handy for keeping track of tiny screws, nails, and jewelry-making materials!
4. Stainless steel + natural = my ideal office space, via Apartment Therapy
5. Entangled Publishing call for submissions with a holiday theme
Got a romantic short story or novella with a holiday theme? Check out Entangled’s requirements, then get your stuff out there!
6. Three times you should use a comma, via The Write Practice
Much easier to remember than when not to use a comma. Next up: apostrophes (not actually sure about that, but it should be).
7. Mind-controlled robot arms show promise, via Nature
THIS, my friends, is the dream of the future. Watch it and weep for joy (or from fear, depending on your outlook)!
8. Power postures can make you feel more powerful, via Wired
Power postures are more than just standing up straight. They’re positions that make you feel BIG. Stretch out. Take up some space. Open your lungs. Breathe deeply. Shove your way into that interview and show ‘em who’s boss! (er… take that last bit lightly, please).
Walk on the right. Pass on the left.
WHY DOES THIS EVEN HAVE TO BE A DISCUSSION?
10. Finally, ten crucial proofreading tips, via Working Writers
Gah, even we professionals need a reminder now and then. Great words of wisdom, especially that part about taking breaks. Also: buddy checks are crucial for some materials. It’s always nice to have someone else find the errors you missed! HAHA. Well, it’s humbling, anyway
That’s all for now Have a wonderful weekend!
