Similar to the month of February, I will keep this intro short and sweet. Below you will find some of the things I am loving at the moment. These items are also supporting me through my grad school journey. Enjoy!
This text has been super helpful for me when thinking about how my methods relate and support my theoretical framework (and vice versa). The authors also dive into ethical issues and innovative uses of digital media, which I am particularly interested in. I recommend it for anyone using research approaches from a feminist standpoint. A special thanks to my colleague for recommending it to me.
I cannot recommend this book enough! It is our current read for my book club and I flew through it. This fiction tells the story of how the world would change if power was in the hands of women; where teenage girls have immense physical power – they can cause agonizing pain and even death. You will have to read it to find out how it ends!
This powerful nut is full of selenium, which is an essential mineral and antioxidant that is needed daily for a healthy immune system and it helps to prevent damage to our nerves and cells. They are expensive but I only eat 1 a day (100mcg), typically I chop it up and toss it in my morning oatmeal. Feed yourself with nature’s supplements!
I tested out the Melissa Wood Health workouts for a 5 free day trial and I loved it! These workouts focus on small movements, working with your own body weight. I didn’t expect them to be so difficult but they are certainly challenging. The workouts teach you how to use muscles that you don’t typically use, in order to encourage long lean lines. Plus Melissa herself is just a ball of light, which encourages me to get up and move.
How has it taken me so long to buy environmentally friendly menstrual products? I finally bought the DivaCup and guess what? I am loving it! I feel at peace knowing I am not putting an toxins into my body every month and also not creating so much unnecessary waste.
Okay this is super nerdy of me but this podcast has been very helpful. It provides quick tips on grammar. I usually listen to it when I am walking or on the bus since the episodes are not long. I recommend it for anyone interested in improving their grammar.
I was looking for an online tool to create a mind map for my comprehensive exams coming up this summer. There may be a few apps out there but a lot of them are pretty useless. I found Mindmup was my favourite as it is providing me with lots of space and options to make the map my own. However, there is a small monthly fee. You can watch a quick video about it here.
I have also added a summary page of the ‘Things I am Loving‘ that I will be updating each month. However, I will also be posting a corresponding blog post to talk about each item more in depth (just like this one). So stay tuned 🙂
Now I want to hear from you!
