Sitting at a desk and staring at a screen all day, you find yourself reading things from all corners of the internet.
I'm going to share links to things I read and found interesting and hopefully you will find them interesting too.
Dead Certainty: How “Making a Murderer” is wrong. (spoiler alert) Like most of America, I recently binged on Netflix's original series "Making a Murderer." Initially I was outraged by the information presented. That an innocent man and his 17-year old nephew were falsely accused and blackmailed by the Mantiwoc County Sheriff's Department and that they should immediately be freed. I had to let the information sink in for a few days before realizing the documentary was extremely biased, and even though I still believe that the sheriffs office is at fault and should be punished, the documentarians did an absolutely terrible job presenting the evidence and letting viewers form their own opinions. If you did deep, there is a whole slew of evidence against Steven Avery that was not mentioned in the series. This post in the New Yorker does an excellent job of pointing out the fallacies with the show.
*addendum: no shade to the show or it's makers. It was a good watch. I just like to poke holes in things.
ok, I promise the rest of the links are a little more lighthearted.
This adorable scandinavian/bohemian apartment is the perfect example of minimalism meets maximalism. Future home goals.
British illustrator Gemma Correll creates graphics that perfectly sum up living with anxiety or depression. Excuse my while I needlepoint all of the drawings to hang in my room.
I don't care for Future or his music, so I really appreciate this. All facts.
My favorite new addition to the SNL cast (except for Pete Davidson. I love you, Pete). Leslie Jones is real and is not afraid to say what everyone is thinking about SNL, even though they pay her rent.
I've never preformed on a stage (unless you count 4th grade recorder concerts. surprisingly most people don't) but I was mesmerized by these photos of what actors are seeing when they're on stage.
According to Fast Company, young people should plan on changing jobs every 3 years. It makes a lot more sense than you think.
what are some of your go-to news sites? I was recently put on to Fast Company which is super cool and weird but always need new suggestions of interesting things to read.
