MapHi there,

So this is the time of year where I go into hiding and enjoy my time writing essays and finishing final projects. For all of you, that means I might be a bit scarce OR you'll hear way too much from me because I'm procrastinating. We'll see.

For now, here are some things to look at and listen to in order to distract you from me.....

Picky Palate: one of my favourite food blogs
http://picky-palate.com/
This is a great little blog from a Mom of two. She makes easy food that photographs beautifully; each of the desserts look so tempting! I think the ingredient lists are pretty easy too, the items are easy to find in North America.

How Stuff Works: everything you needed to pondered when you're bored
http://www.howstuffworks.com/
I have downloaded the app to my iPod and have just started listening to the podcasts titled 'Stuff Mom Never Told You' and 'Stuff You Missed in History Class'.

TED Talks: Ideas worth spreading
http://www.ted.com/
This site makes it difficult to even choose what to watch! There are great videos about every topic you would like to check out: neuroscience, history, economics, music, etc. Check out Andrew Bird's one man orchestra, anything by Steven Pinker and definitely Ze Frank's talk about making real connections to people on the Web.

Cheers for now,
xoxo
