Yael’s Variety Hour: Inspiration… and Signs of the Pending Apocalypse

Welcome to the weekly variety hour. The past week for me has been a wild rollercoaster, and I’m hanging on for the ride! Here’s some articles and links I picked up along the way.

Signs of the Pending Apocalypse

  • New Report Says Girls Feel They Must Choose Between Femininity and Sciences.

Enjoy.
  • I Blame My Fiancee for This Engagement Photo. “Elaborately staged pictures are yet another ridiculous, overblown wedding trend,” says Joe Donatelli. “And yes,” he adds, “ours are awesome.” Sometimes you’ve just gotta go with the flow…
Shameless Self-Promotion
Have a great Wednesday, and I’ll see you next week!
I want to get posts like this delivered to my inbox.


  1. Thank you for sharing this. I enjoyed reading every topic that you have posted here. Especially the topic about the man accused of breaking bird feeding law. I never knew that there’s a law in bird feeding.
