Second week of june

It’s the second week of June and if we dare to blink too much, before we know it this summer will have faded into a windy fall. So make plans and break all of them to spend every single sunny day outside. But during your 9-5 or the days when the rain dances above your head, here’s a list of the 7 coolest things i’ve found on the internet this week.



1.  I’m guilty. Sometimes we set goals and deadlines and they pass quicker than we can accomplish them.

Here’s why that’s okay and how you can change your ways.


2. How NOT to use Instagram

One girl’s experiment to use her Instagram like a teenager does. If we become friends on Instagram, you won’t have to worry about me using hashtags like: #heputaringonit #omg #YOLO


3. This week I’ve been turning the pages of…

Haruki Murakami’s collection of short stories: The Elephant Vanishes. The title story is really fun and interesting. It’s about a town that adopts an elephant and the events that follow when the elephant vanishes. How at first, the town is overwhelemed and obsessed with trying to find the elephant. It’s the only thing you hear about in the news. But like everything else, time fades everything – fears and memories. Soon, no one talks about it anymore. No one seems to even care.

4. Everything you need to know about the World Cup

You can learn here!

5. It’s going down…we met on Tinder:

People are no longer using Tinder as a way of finding people to date (though some people, maybe, never used this app as an innocent place to find dates). We’re now using it for things like this.

6. Send someone one of these

For no reason other than that you miss them, or you love them, or you just want to say “Hi, how are you?”. (It’s only $1.99 – that’s less than a cup of coffee at Starbucks!)

7. Turn your speakers up:

I’m Jen Glantz. I’ve been a published writer for over 13 years, spilling my words into magazines (ranging from style to scuba diving), newspapers, websites and even this one time, a speech, for someone who didn’t speak a word of English. What drives my words, my site, my writing, is the power of relating to people. I find that many people, especially young girls, feel so alone and quite often they feel embarrassed. I want to shatter those feelings! I want them to read what I write and understand that it’s okay to be a little outside of the box, but most importantly, that it is okay to just be who they are.
