nzmuse link love roundup

– Labour Weekend! Huzzah!

– Lopped off a bunch of my hair! As always, wish I’d done it way earlier. What do you do while you’re in the chair? I usually close my eyes (especially if I’m not wearing contacts and can’t really see anyway). I don’t have a regular hairdresser – I just go to a weird Asian salon where they don’t speak much English, but know how to handle Asian hair.

– November is shaping up to be crazy – two work related trips. Looking forward to it.

– I’m thinking about keeping a ‘health’ diary (though next month is probably not the month to do it in). Basically I just haven’t been feeling at my best, and I think keeping track of my sleep, what I eat and drink, what exercise I do, and any digestive woes I have might yield some insights.

This week’s links

A truly horrifying, spine-chilling story about living in a mouldy house

Giving up on dreaming big (and my previous take on that)

My fellow anti-social hermits, let us unite in our frugality

Good managers are indeed hard to find, and there’s so many variations on the bad kind

The ups and downs of working from home

I thought this take on the new era of non-job stability was interesting

What Sex and the City needed more of: introverts.

“Six seasons didn’t make me wish I had a life similar to the SATC characters. Instead, six seasons made me wish I wanted a life like theirs and question why I don’t. Shouldn’t I want to see my friends more? Shouldn’t I have three friends to complete me? “

    Oooh, interesting links! I couldn’t resist reading the SATC one right away… I feel like I have a lot of thoughts about that series that are brewing inside of me… I may need to make a post.

    Anyway, it’s interesting how people can feel pressured to find themselves in a piece of pop culture — even if it isn’t entirely something that resonates. I never really thought about whether the characters were introverted or not — though I suspected that Miranda was. I think what people forget when they watch the show is that they are meant to show us scenes of their lives — and the more interesting parts. Just because the show featured them meeting up all the time doesn’t mean it happened all the time… it could have been weekly or a few times a week… not every moment of the day. (Wow, this sounds sounds so defensive, haha.)

    But anyway, I do think it’s worth noting that while Carrie was out with her friends or with her boyfriends a lot, she also was a single woman working from home… so as social as she seemed, she also presumably had tons of alone time — especially as a writer.

    Okay, enough! Sorry, I get really into that show! 🙂

    I totally hear ya on the introverts and anti-social behavior :)! I don’t like to think of myself as a hermit exactly, but, I’m definitely more of a homebody.

    Your November seems to be getting more exciting! I hope mine too. Still waiting for some invites from friends. Enjoy your two trips!
