Web Time Wasters

How was your week, guys? I’m writing this from my college roommate’s apartment in NYC, snuggled between a French bulldog and a pug. In so many words: I am living the dream.

A quick reminder: if you sell things that people buy for the holidays, you might want ad space here on Yes & Yes! It’s insanely effective and much more affordable than you’d think. Check out my traffic and ad rates here or just drop me a line at sarah (at) yesandyes (dot) org and we’ll get you started!

What if we fixed things instead of immediately replacing them?

Are you doing a ‘Whole 30’? Even if you’re not, you might like this round up of Whole 30-approved snack ideas!

Are you trying to figure out what makes you happy? Maybe making a mind map will help (apparently they’re not just for boardroom brainstorming sessions!)

  1. Pick a topic.
  2. Make the Mind Map, with the center being one thing that brings you joy or is pleasurable and positive in your life.

What happens when you realize you were unkind and un-empathetic to a former co-worker?
Even though I was never outright cruel to her, I know that I never viewed her as a person to take seriously. I considered her unambitious; I judged her choices, and felt superior to her because she didn’t seem to want to run projects or move up. Though it was never explicitly stated, the big boss seemed to consider her a charity case. To be clear, she was a hardworking person who got her work done in the hours between 8:30 and 6:30 — a ten-hour day, no less! Those of us who’d worked till 11 p.m. would arrive around 10 a.m., get coffee, and start work in earnest around 11:30. We’d take lunch at two. We were less efficient than Aurelie by far.
