Weekly Links: T shirts, Tracks and Inspirational Talks

Hello everyone!
Aside from skating to class (literally), trying to adjust to a new schedule and already regretting staying up late, this week has been a good one. It's nice to say I have one week of my second semester under my belt.

With this week's links I couldn't get the picture link to work so until I fix the situation, click the hyper links below.

This week the Coachella music festival released its line up for 2014. The 2 week festival starts in April and is always a hot commodity.  Tickets sell faster than a 70% off  sale at Urban Outfitters and is every hippie's, I use the term loosely, dream to attend. Mashable made a list of the songs your ears need to listen to in order to get pumped for Coachella. Also, Outkast is reuniting and that make this girl very, very happy.

Speaking of Urban Outfitters, the company always knows how to make a statement. 
In this case, it's not necessarily Urban Outfitter's fault, but merely a backfire in the company's mindset to always try to support smaller brands.  Their "Depression" crop top was pulled after some customers found it offensive.  The brand Depression has been mistaken for the disorder, but the designers still stand behind the garment. And I don't particularity blame them. They're getting a publicity boost just by having a shirt bearing their logo. Is this shirt truly offensive? You can be the judge.

 Meet Lizzie Velasquez, a 24 year old who can never gain weight. Cue jealous women everywhere. I came across Lizzie while scrolling through my Facebook feed a few days ago. Someone shared an article about Lizzie deeming her " The Ugliest Woman Alive". This title shouldn't even exist? Title aside, I found a TED Talk from Lizzie and it was truly inspiring.

A fun quiz popped up this week, Instagram caption or philosophical quote over on BuzzFeed. I found this amusing as everyone tries to get "deep" after spending more time than they'd like to admit on the right filter and then wracking their brain for an inspirational,  at times irrelevant, quote to match. ( ahem. a la  Kendall and Kylie Jenner)

Last but not  least, here's a video that everyone in frozen areas of the country can relate to.  A new spin on a wet T- shirt contest.

Have a great weekend everyone.
