It's Saturday! At last.
Hopefully, some of you will find yourselves in the fortunate position of having nothing to do today. So if you're stuck for something to help pass the time while you wait for your breakfast to cook or coffee to brew, here are my top three reads for this weekend:
1. Counselling Directory's blog on "What to say to someone going through IVF"
An increasingly prevalent topic in our society as more of us turn to medical science to aid conception. Some suggestions for how to support those going through the difficult process.
2. Guardian article "I am learning to drive in London, the Mordor of motoring" by Coco Khan @cocobyname.
An insight into one woman's anxiety vs the reality of learning to drive in London - the anxiety and fear that can come from learning to drive is not to be underestimated, and her honest account of learning a new skill as an adult is really refreshing.
3. Youtube video of the beginning of Mike Monteiro's "Fuck you. Pay me." speech at the March 2011 San Francisco, CreativeMornings event.
Working freelance in creative industries can be hard enough, but not getting paid for the work that's been done is harder. The start of his motivational speech for creatives could be just the thing to start off your Saturday.
Hoping that you all have a lovely weekend,
