Link love (Powered by rainstorms and troubled sleep)

nzmuse link love roundup

Guys, it’s been a hard week. One of those weeks where I’ve retreated into myself and felt really alone – there’s nobody I want to talk to about it and I haven’t even wanted to write about it just yet.

At this stage, I think I’d rather be back in Italy among the sticky fig trees and blasted horse dung and cleaning the chicken coop and at the topless beach that wasn’t. Yep, even in the 30-40 degree heat (I’d never gotten so sweaty in my life) – though on the plus side Europe has a much stronger ozone layer, so I never got burnt like I would here at home.

    Sorry to hear about what you are feeling. Sometimes, I had a hard week too, I had lots of doubts and I’m worried about my future. Just continue praying.

    Gosh, aren’t Meghan and her dad’s advice posts the best? I think what I like is just how open her dad is about millennial troubles and, despite wearing the “old person” hat, often takes the “follow your dream” and “don’t be ashamed of who you are” stance more often than not. And obviously they have a good relationship and that’s adorable too.

    Also, sorry to hear about the bad week.

    I SO know that feeling!!

    The Cordelia post was interesting. Not sure what it means really. I think a lot of people who built their brand during the recession are at the same point right now she is.
