Best of the web: May 3rd

Newcastle Memorial Walk | lizniland.com

The weather has been mostly grey and I’ve been struck down with the sniffles but this weekend has been delightful. A walk over Newcastle’s new Memorial Walk this morning after a big gym session, the new Avengers on the big screen last night & plenty of delicious food have all helped clear away the clouds of the past week.

I’ve come across some great reads over the last few days; hope you get to check them out.

  • If you’re prone to running yourself into the ground and not looking up until you’re a little further down than you expected, print this list out & stick it by your desk: Everything Is Awful and I’m Not Okay: questions to ask before giving up.
  • Is a visit to the art gallery not exhilarating enough for you? Why not try it sans pants? Adults only nudey art tours are now a thing.
  • Does wanting to be thinner void your membership to the league of feminists? I’d never really considered this but it’s an interesting question:

    …instead of fighting for a world where all bodies are admired, I’m pandering, reshaping my body to make it acceptable to the world around me.

  • What my cat taught me about gender; one man’s thoughtful and entertaining discussion on gender identity after discovering his girl-cat is actually a boy-cat.
  • Whether you’ve lost your magnet, your mojo, or just need to get your groove back, Veronica Varlow has some practical tips to reconnect you with your creative flow.

I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend

x Liz
