Odds and Ends

1. I finally wrote about my updated morning and evening skincare routine.

4. We are officially on summer break, and I was feeling this something fierce the last few weeks of school.

5. A guide to midwestern conversation. So true!

6. Did you see the results from when kids bullied plants? Wow.

8. Horrible stock photos of careers. Haha, is this for real?

9. You guys, a sinkhole is opening up on the White House lawn. #metaphor

12. Okay, so I pulled the trigger on Thrive Market. Did the free trial for a month and I freaking love it. Such fantastic savings on so many Organic goods that I can’t find in my local markets! Get 25% off your first order here.

    My daughter is about to tun 15 and this is the best quote from that article about what to do when your teen hates you, “Making friends with teenagers a little like making friends with a Bengal tiger,” Brauner says. “You approach slowly and you know where the exits are.”

    Did you just say corn-fused???? My Dad used to say that all the time when I was little and I still say it for fun.

    The truly sad part of the SF Mayor’s response to the drug use is homeless sweeps. They get removed, their belongings taken, without any resources. These are people who are treated as trash. Yesterday I listened to the dulcet sounds of 90 people sleeping in our sanctuary from 6 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. On the whole they are kind people who have a lot of trauma. But they still are people who need housing, medicine, and social supports. I am pretty passionate about this, as I DO find syringes on the steps to the church where I serve, but the response of adding more police will only make it worse. They aren’t drug counselors. We need more opportunities for rehabs and job searching. And, as in all of life, we need to see the person as a human and a child of God.
