Better Late than Never: A Summer Sunday

Happy Sunday, readers! I hope you are all enjoying sunshine, and making the fathers in your life bacon and eggs. This weekend has flown by for me, as it is wont to do, so I hope you'll forgive the late Sunday edition. 

This week my new roommate Codi moved in and we are so thrilled to have her with us! Not only that but we (FINALLY) had our new couch delivered which means I am one step closer to the living room/dining room update reveal (woohoo!). This last week was also the first week where I haven't had school or a second job to take up my evenings and weekends so needless to say I enjoyed some long-overdue R&R. Which isn't really R&R because I still worked during the day. But it's R&R in my world, so it counts.

Today is Father's Day! Since my padre lives in AZ now, I did not get to have my customary breakfast with my own dear paterfamilis, but hope to when they visit in July. My dad is a former software engineer, now retired in Tucson, golf cart driving, movie loving, suduku master. As I type I am pre-heating the oven for these beautiful blueberry muffins from the Smitten Kitchen and know that he would be just as eager to get them into his face as I am.  Now let's get to the internet! Since I've been gone for a bit some of these are a little old, but well worth the read.

Gems of the Internet

An oldie but a goodie, the gals of Stuff Mom Never Told You wrote a series of articles for LeanIn.org and this is my fave, all about "impostor syndrome"

I'm sure you've missed my art history/museum focused articles so here is another one regarding female erasure for The National Gallery's Inventing Impressionism. It's an interesting read and I also love it because it focuses on one of my favorite Impressionist artists, Mary Cassatt.

It's full-tilt summer in Seattle and here are 17 reasons why it is better than anywhere else

For real, people. We have GOT to talk about Charleston

Some fabulous lady scientists fire back at Dr Tim Hunt's sexist remarks by getting hilarious on twitter. But just incase you were getting down on ladies in science, check out Bill Nye being awesome

And finally, a note from all the single ladies to everyone else:
