Look What I Found On The Internet Part 3

If you're still in school, one of the fundamental things you're required to do if you ever plan on getting your foot through the door of a career, you must intern. This is particularly true for creative industries such as fashion. Fashionista ran this article about who has the luxury to work for no pay and how that's creating an imbalance of types of people who contribute in the fashion industry.

A few weeks ago, Ellen were showing funny clips she (read: her team) found on Youtube. This lady known as, Aunt Carol, danced to the choreography of Usher and it is equally entertaining and inspiring. You must check her out dance. Ellen even invited her to dance with a special guest.

If you only read one item from this, read this one. It's a children story about toys and discusses the theme of selft identity. The velveteen rabbit innocently asks, 'What is real?' Even though it is a children's story and originally published in the 1922, this theme is lasting and resonate beyond childhood. Here's an excerpt to tease you:

"It doesn't happen all at once. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand."
