Recent things I read online and liked:

“Life is harder than radio.” Marc Maron interviewed Fresh Air‘s Terry Gross. 

“So why not just say f* the career and just have the baby? Why not just say to hell with kids and pursue a career you love instead? Why try to have “it all” at all? Here’s why: Because having a great career is the best and having babies is f*ing incredible and having both is AMAZING, and no I’m not kidding, not even a little bit.” This Ask Polly advice about work/life balance is good stuff. 

My former colleagues at WHYY put together a really impressive series on Pennsylvania public education funding. It answers the questions you’ve always wondered about: How does the government decide how much money to give schools? How much do teachers make? What’s the deal with charter schools? What the heck is a millage rate?

BuzzFeed has a list for everything. And I mean EVERYTHING.

“Almost everything you look at will become sources of inspiration.” This guy talks about how to become an “idea machine.”

I'm middle school English teacher in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Before moving to Asia, I reported statewide news for a Pennsylvania public radio station. I've lived in five countries and traveled to dozens. I really enjoy rearranging my furniture.
