I’m going to start sharing my favorite blog posts by other bloggers! I’ll be posting them in the middle of the month as the end of the month is usually dedicated to my month in review post. This post will be longer than my future post as this is my favorite posts from the last month and a half (since December 4th to be exact) and I’ve had a lot of time on my hands to read.
Don’t get me wrong, I saw some great posts this months, if I “like” your posts or comment, that means I really enjoyed them! These are just the best of the best.
Here are my favorite reads…

- Zero Waste Challenge: ‘Periods’: Until this post, I considered Diva Cups the only alternative to pads and tampons, which didn’t seem right for me. However, this post outlines other alternatives to traditional wasteful products.
- Why hummingbirds are so cool!: In my undergraduate degree, I helped Ph.D. student (then candidate) Rick on his work on courtship patterns in hummingbirds. Between the hours of often mind-numbing work (sorry, Rick!), it’s easy to forget why we’re doing this and how amazing these little birds are.

However, it was a good learned experience and I hope to return to finish someday soon!
- How to travel the world with a 9-5: So much yes. The author talks about how travellers demonize the working stiff and how, similar to myself, he has no desire to constantly be on the move. Balance is important and I look forward to having a fulfilling career as well as exploring new places. Also, this guy has been to North Korea, say what?!
