Weekly Links: Written in the Stars


This week I started my Summer internship. While it has only been a few days, I have already learned a lot and have worked on a vast array of different tasks. One main thing that I've learned  whilist working this week: Why coffee is so important to adults.

Having a big kid job takes  alot of energy!

Not too long ago, I was a yearbook editor. I know things change at a rapid pace, but never did I think that schools would start photoshopping their student's yearbook portraits. I'm not talking about the standard air brushing a few pimples or getting rid of a few stray hairs here. Utah’s Wasatch High School is currently under scrutiny after students realized their photos were drastically changed without their knowledge. Necklines, tattoos, even shirt colors: all changed with a click of a button.


The highly anticipated film adaptation of The Fault in our Stars comes out next Friday. The book is huge. The movie is going to be huge. If you haven't heard of this novel by John Green then you must be living under a rock. Many Nerdfighters ( Green's fans) know that TFIOS was inspired by Esther Earl, a teen Green met that was battling cancer.  I just recently found out that Esther's parents published an autobiography filled with Ether's poems, drawings and life story which you can buy here. I can't help but see this book being just as inspiring and influential as TFIOS.

Wedding season is in full swing. Like any milestone, couples receive numerous different types of advice from friends and family. Now imagine getting advice from a celebrity. How cool would that be? Comedic legend Bill Murray  crashed a Bachelor party and gave his own wedding advice. His wisdom has a sense of wanderlust to it and is inspiring for new and older couples alike.
Scout Willis hasn't been happy with Instagram this week. The young starlet posted a photo of her wearing a sweatshirt that depicted two topless women. Per Instagram's guidelines there can not be any inappropriate content such as nudity. Scout's Instagram was made private and then was deleted by the photo sharing app. To protest this, she walked around NYC topless, where it is legal. Scout's protest deals with much more than just her photo that was banned. She is also standing up for breast cancer survivors ( Their pictures of mastectomy get deleted by Instagram as well) and for women body impowerment.
