On My Radar: What I’m Reading Today

On My Radar: What I'm Reading Today |

Confession: This was supposed to be Saturday morning’s post but I forgot to schedule it on Friday and Saturday was spent going around Estancia with Joey (I want everything at West Elm!). I figure I’ll just make this a Monday thing because my blog traffic on weekends is kind of dismal, anyway.

Today, I’m listing a few interesting articles I read the past few days that I find worth sharing with you guys.

++ IT HAPPENED TO ME: I Was A Victim of Reddit’s FatPeopleHate Because I Refused to Be Ashamed of My Body. I am so glad that r/fatpeoplehate has been shut down. This particular quote stands out the most because we’ve all been on the receiving end of Ew, I wouldn’t fuck her (her, being you/me) or Nakaka-turn off ka— “It amazes me what a man will say to a woman that he is not sexually attracted to. Because he despised my body, I had nothing left to offer the world in his eyes.”

++ One Roll of Toilet Paper A Week, Five Maxi Pads Per Month. Imprisoned Manhattan Madam, Kristin Davis, talks about life behind bars and it’s not OITNB.

++ 51 Quick Hacks That Will Make You Write Attractive Headlines. Note: exercise caution because clickbait is annoying.

++ How to Create Shareworthy Twitter Images: 10 Ways to Maximize Engagement on Your Tweets. I really need to start being mindful of Twitter photo dimensions.

++ Why “Don’t Worry About Money, Just Travel” Is The Worst Advice Of All Time. This is my favorite non-animal video thing on the internet right now.

++ 5 Ways To Break Bad Clutter Habits. Everything is so simple and doable.

++ 25 Famous Women On The Best Advice They’ve Ever Given — Or Received. Rosie Perez’s is my favorite.

++ ‘Cisgender’ has been added to the Oxford English Dictionary. Other (Philippine English) words added to the OED are carnap and presidentiable.

++ Former Child Grooms Say “I Do Not.” Can… we just let children be children???

++ 7 Money Mistakes to Avoid Making in Your Twenties. Definitely guilty of a few!

++ A Quick Puzzle to Test Your Problem Solving. Why hearing “no” isn’t such a bad thing.

++ Are You Reading The Wrong Books? What Science Is Saying About Fiction Readers. I’ve always felt a bit insecure for not reading smart books (like Joey’s business and self-help pop-fiction) but this article says I’m doing fine with my choice of reading material.

And for all the menists out there who use the voice of the oppressed to position themselves back into power:


Have a great week ahead, guys!

    My latest post is kind of similar to the first article. I kind of relate, tho I really did not have those worse experience she had growing up being fat. I guess, I just learned to accept my body size earlier that I was like “Fvck what you think.” even as a child. Lol.

    Anyway, these articles are really interesting. I was actually planning on posting something like this, but about articles I read about creepy things. Haha.
