Links I Love: Volume 8

Hi guys. How was your week like? This week, I bring you articles on secrets, puns and more. There’s an article on why people don’t like puns and a small history of puns; a funny cover letter; scientific explanation on why you shouldn’t keep secrets; learning aggressively versus learning passively; why you can’t remember your childhood; spontaneous orgasms; why rich kids study English; how rape is depicted in TV shows and how only OINTB gets it right; why marriage doesn’t make you happy; and why it’s your husband holding back your career, not your children. Enjoy!

Midweek Moanings

Hi there,
It feels like I haven’t posted here in ages.

School has really resumed with actual lectures and it’s very very hectic already. I already have 2 presentations and one assignment due.

My friend’s birthday was yesterday so we went to Ozone and the only movie we were remotely interested in was Ted 2. It was hilarious and there was this reaaaalllllyyyy nasty scene in it. We also went to Silver Cafe in ECentre and we did a little karaoke. It’s really not bad if you get over the smoke.

We haven’t had light for over a week. I don’t understand what is going on in my hostel. I feel like we’re being ripped off. There’s no water, no light and they aren’t turning on the generator. So what exactly am I is my father paying for.

I’m trying to improve on my left handwriting. It’s not so bad. I can say that it’s better than some people’s normal handwriting.

You should also check out all the awesome stories shortlisted for Writivism 2015 and this funny article in the NewYorker about comprehension passages.

I really don’t have anything to talk about. Just needed to post something here. I’ve been thinking of what to talk about, but I’m drawing blanks. If there’s something you’d like me to talk about, you can drop a comment, tweet at me @deaduramilade or send me an email (Ltawaq@gmail.com)

Adios!
Grace & Peace

It’s a new week and a new month and I bring you articles on “the perfect feminist”; how to take back your life; why it’s okay to wrestle with the bible; how your brain remembers where you parked your car; why we should accept our heritage; why we should stop calling kids smart; everything you need to know about the leap second; why love is a myth; how our privilege blinds us to the reality of other people’s lives; why you should do you even when people dissent your views; and why the one is not the one. There’s also a post about asteroid obliteration.

Monthly Round Up: June 2015

June was an okay month.
I was on holiday for most of the month so I had a lot of free time.

My brother’s birthday was this month.

I didn’t do a lot this month. I like that Pamela has started blogging again and I really enjoy Afoma’s photo challenge.

I started watching Game of Thrones from the beginning. I think it’s an absolutely brilliant series. I’m currently on S05E02 and that took me about 4 days. I kept off watching it until I read the books but I realised I probably won’t ever get to it. My favourite characters are Tyrion Lannister and “Mother of Dragons”.

I read five books this month

This week I bring you links on how successful Lagos Danfo drivers actually are; why some women choose to not have children, how the concept of “soulmate” has been (re)invented; how and if yoga and Islam and Christianity can work together; sometimes the things we believe are right aren’t and they are wrong to other people; why happy dreams are terrible. There’s an article on what your Hogwarts house says about you (as explained by science); why Sweden is the best place to live in the world; the evolution of alternative medicine; the story of an all-female force during WWII and some other interesting articles. Enjoy!
