Around the Web #1

Welcome! I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time now because I read so much shit online that I might as well share it here. It’s a list of links that I come across, read, learn from, and bookmark from around the web. It’s something that I’ll try to do as often as long as I remember to bookmark the links that I’ve read or liked.

Here goes..

I have been obsessed with Ellen Pao (and her husband, Buddy Fletcher) articles the whole weekend. I don’t know how many I’ve read but the two above were what struck me the most. Honestly, I don’t know how to feel about the whole situation. My main concern is that it’s crazy how she still chose to work at the same company she felt so strongly (and sued) against. With her background and intelligence, she could have worked anywhere.. or even set up her own empire. Everything’s so crazy to the point that it almost doesn’t make sense.

A lot of things (with the exception of religion) that were listed there made a lot of sense to me and I totally related to. Your 20s is such a pivotal time in your life because it’s where you get to learn what life really has to offer.

It’s always very inspiring reading about celebrities and their battle with mental disorders. The stigma nowadays is still so bad (especially for people in the limelight) that I admire the courage it would take for them to talk about their struggle with it.

I feel I’m gonna have to look back on this entry every time I turn a decade older. It lists out the financial matters you’re “supposed” to take into account and separates them every decade. Personally I don’t see myself opening a retirement fund anytime soon but I do have an insurance plan that I don’t plan to touch until I’m old and unemployed. Does that count?

That’s it for this entry! I was supposed to have a few more but I realized I didn’t want to populate the page too much if I were to talk about every link I mentioned. I prefer this way of being able to explain my side for every link I post to make it a bit more personal. After all, this is very much a personal blog.

      You should. Seeing what her life is now, I really appreciated that she shared her struggle with anxiety.
