Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.
This Week’s Theme:
Non Bookish Sites I Waste My Life On
The truth is that I probably spend more time on these site than I do reading and/or blogging. Such is life.
I lurk Reddit (meaning: I don’t have an account) and the folders of bookmarked subreddits I follow.
I rarely (if at all) visit Buzzfeeds actual website. Instead, I opt for their /BuzzFeedVideo, /BuzzFeedBlue, /BuzzFeedYellow, /BuzzFeedViolet Youtube channels. I religiously check for new videos everyday.
You laugh but it’s necessary to know how cold it is in the morning versus how hot it’s going to turn out to be in the afternoon. Canadian weather can’t make its mind.
The Globe and Mail
One of my University professors encouraged students to get into the habit of reading at least one news article a day (topic doesn’t matter) and though I haven’t always stuck by it, it’s something I do often enough. I think you’d be surprised how many news-ish articles you read daily nested in social media.
Alternatively, if I want a laugh via satire-based news, I’d hit up The Onion. They’re hilarious.
The Awkward Yeti
If you’ve never seen these heart-and-brain webcomics then you’ve been missing out.
It’s a search engine, sure, but I spend a lot of time Googling the most random shit. For example: if I’m eating a burger with avocado in it, and I have nothing better to do, I’ll google “health benefits of avocados”. #typicalshenanigans
I seek to make dreams happen. My credit card disagrees but you know how it is.
Bonus: Eurovision 2016
Anyone else follow Eurovision Song Contest? My top 3 to win, in no particular order, are: (links redirect to Youtube). Also, Patrick Ness has the best live tweets to the songs.
– Australia (I kinda want Aussie to win as it’s only their second year at ESC. They gotta get rid of the podium Dami sits on because it limits her singing imo);
– Russia (really anthemic and something that would typically win, although the performance visuals is so blown up it’s crazy);
– France (It’s the vocal work I appreciate the most with this despite not typically not enjoying non-English songs at ESC)
– Sweden (I’m putting the host country in here even though I don’t really think they’ll rank well. Simple can be good but of the rehearsal performances I’ve seen, it’s no Euphoria or Heroes for me — both of which won)
– Bulgaria (my dark horse choice even though the staging is kinda derpy)
– Israel (I don’t think this ballad will get the recognition it deserves. It’s funny because I’m sure if a country like Sweden performed this song, they’d rank higher. Just my thoughts.)
Go forth and waste your life as well.
