Can you believe it’s already December? I felt like just a week ago it was Halloween and now it’s snowing in Pittsburgh! Either way, I’m excited for the holiday season, the end of finals and my twentieth birthday! Cards and gifts aren’t frowned upon, by the way. Anyway, here’s some stuff for you to read on this blustery day!
◊ Have you ever wondered how certain people have a magnetic charisma when interacting with people one-on-one? Tim Ferriss describes how it works and how you can do it yourself.
◊ Speaking of interpersonal communication, The Naked Redhead talks negotiation skills – how to negotiate like a lady, even if you’re a man.
◊ I’m a major tea fan – so any guide designed to upgrade my tea game is greatly appreciated.
◊ Ever went on a “lady date” – a date with a seriously awesome lady, no romance required? Well…consider it.
◊ I love interesting art installations. Henk Hoftsra took it upon himself to break a few eggs.
◊ I love the cute, artsy gifts and these ones on Design*Sponge are both adorable and bargain friendly (twenty-five dollars or less!).
◊ On the other hand, here’s an argument of the other persuasion: The Case Against Buying Christmas Presents on Zen Habits.
I don’t love Christmas shopping, or the overconsumption, frenzied malls, consumer debt, environmental waste, wasted time wrapping, and over-accumulation of needless stuff that goes with it.
Bah humbug! I love Christmas, but the shopping has got to go.
◊ This is almost too strange to be true…stiletto hiking boots? Would anyone actually wear these?
◊ Best Holiday cookie recipes? Yes, please. Thank you, Real Simple magazine.
◊ This is hilarious – uncomfortable plot summaries. Funny, but oh so wrong.
