1. Wanna Be On Top?
This Buzzfeed article chronicling the 29 Most Ridiculous Moments in "America's Next Top Model" History took me on a major journey through memory lane. I used to be obsessed with this show. Which is odd because any time someone saw how tall I was, they would say something along the lines of "wow, you should model" (not taking into consideration my lack of coordination/model features) and I would just scoff at the idea. No part of me ever wanted to do anything of that nature, but for some reason this show was one of my favorites. I think it was more of a guilty pleasure than anything, especially considering how incredibly absurd Tyra Banks was on the show (and probably still is).
My obsession sort of tapered off when I realized how truly ridiculous the photoshoots and challenges were getting, but those weekend marathons were the bomb.com during my early teen years. ANTM marathons = the original Netlflix binge-watching. If would be forever grateful to anyone who could point me in the direction of an online archive with all the seasons!
There is really no explanation needed for this one. Tinderella: A Modern Fairy Tale is pretty hilarious, regardless of whether or not you've used Tinder. Also, check out this Thought Catalog article on why some people feel like Tinder is cool, but other dating websites aren't. It's pretty interesting. My personal favorite line is:
"People - well, mostly millennials - are so afraid to let anyone know that we crave something deeper than the ephemeral."
so. freakin. true.
3. An Open Letter to Employers
Most, if not all, of us millennials struggle with a job search at some point. It sucks. Every single aspect of it from the resume editing and cover letter writing to the interviews and the possibility of rejection is stressful and draining. Sometimes you feel like there's never any hope and that no one wants to hire you. Been there, done that. This writer from Elite Daily decided to write an open letter to all the employers who didn't hire her and it is so relatable. She hits on every feeling you've ever felt while searching for your dream job and it really feels like she's writing this in behalf of all of us who've been there at one point or another. Definitely a recommended read for both employed and unemployed post-grads.
4. Rue La La
As usual, Rue La La is killing it with the sales. Occasionally I'll find myself not loving the sales or not seeing anything worth buying, but lately they are amazing. Included in the several sales going on are some from Alex & Ani, Ray Ban, and Nicole Miller. Not to mention a bunch of other random sales containing things from Sperry Topsider and Lilly Pulitzer.
