Links I love v. 6

I am planning to post this series “Links I love” every Saturday. I was going strong for the first 5 weeks, but then missed the last two. Oops! What can I say? I got a little busy and a lot unorganized for a bit. Therefore, this week I present to you a lot, a lot of links!

Some of these things are serious, some are silly and some are both. I feel a little odd putting them all together like this. Maybe I should stop that. Read on and tell me what you think.

Sweet story about a boy and dog
There’s a sweet story behind this photo.

The Allies Pie via The Hairpin
This is funny to me.

Lorde, Disclosure GIF
Disclosure, Lorde and AlunaGeorge performed ‘Royals/White Noise’ at the Brit Awards. Watch it here! My guy made the GIF.

This article from The Hairpin on Baby Showers is how I’ve felt about the subject for a while.

This Buzzfeed article sums up the case of an officer who shot a young black man.

This anecdotal true story on violence in schools talks about how black youth are disproportionately affected.

This video on women in prison that I found on Tumblr made me cry. Now I need to figure out what to do about it.

Emma of A Beautiful Mess wrote about changing dreams.

Creative Lady Gina Abelkop says “Nothing has to look or read or feel a certain way. You need very little to write: pen & paper.”

I’m absolutely loving this new blog The Siren, which is a collaboration between illustrator Maritza Lugo, writer Julia Gazdag, and writer Shannon Robb. They run the blog and it looks like they have other people joining in.

Side note: My internet friend Helen Venya and my real-life friend Farheen Dayala each updated their websites recently. I love the looks.

I have GOT to cook this Take Out Fake Out Pad Thai recipe on HelloGiggles. I’m always saying I will cook and this might be the recipe to get me to do it. Also, these banana chips on Everygoodthing look ridiculously good.
