Here is this week’s list of blog posts, videos and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.

I’ll Protect You. Had a long week? Click here for a virtual hug.

When Online Friends Aren’t the Same In Person.  Funny!

From Could Imposter Syndrome Learn from Sports? 

And while these tales of achievement and shining sources of confidence may be inspiring, they are also intimidating. They make us think we can never live up to what the successful among us have done. That we will never be enough. From where we sit, it looks like these people never saw failure in their lives. Oh, we know intellectually that it must be there. But we never, ever see it.

Friday the 13th: A Ghost Story. If only this was true. It could be like a modern-day version of A Christmas Carol.

Great Expectations – Musings of a Soon-to-be Wife. This blogger has some interesting ideas about what should (and should not) keep a marriage together. My parents have been happily married for 30 years, my grandparents for 50+.  I only have six years tucked under my belt so far so I don’t think I’m qualified to answer this question yet. Maybe those of you with more experience can chime in? :D

The Toronto Public Library ended their strike last week! It’s nice to have new books again. This week’s recommendation is If I Stay. Seventeen year old Mia has just barely survived a horrific car accident. As the doctors and nurses fight to keep her comatose body alive Mia observes them and tries to decide if she should fight to live or slip away into the next world.
