Link Love 7/20

Welcome to another edition of link love. (Sorry I missed last week!)

I for one am SO happy it’s Friday, even though in a freelancer’s world Friday is usually relative.

So I’ll keep it short and sweet. Here are a few links that tickled my fancy this week. Did I just use that phrase? I did. I’m tired. And perhaps even a little bit British.

Bogofdebt just needs to rant about her housing situation. Don’t we all sometimes? Bloody hell!

Carefulcents talks about Why Everyone Should Have a Side Job or Freelance Gig. Workin’ on it Carrie, workin’ on it!

Get to know Debt & the Girl even better, with 10 (More) Random Facts About Me.

Sandy at Yes, I am Cheap quit her job. So did Retire By 40, as well as Jana from Daily Money Shot last week! It’s an uprising! Who is next?

They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious

Erika at From Shopping to Saving learned some Simple Financial Lessons-Breaking Bad Style. Stayed tuned…I have a What I learned from Friday Night Lights edition coming soon (aside from the fact that I’m kind of in love with Taylor Kitsch) Right?!

Savvy Financial Latina is Finding Time to Relax Without Feeling Guilty. Or is she? Any suggestions for her? I recommend eating bacon. Very relaxing.

And speaking of relaxing, it seems Michelle at Making Sense of Cents feels bad about taking all her vacation days. What??? Use them my friend! (or give them to me!)

Have a great weekend! Hopefully FSL will find some time to relax. I’ll be playing some beach volleyball and watching a pro tournament, where I will feel jealous of the amazon women and  curse my brother for getting all the height in the family. 6’2 vs my 5’4. Boooo!

    Thanks for the mention! I didn’t know that many people are quitting. :)

    Thanks for the link love TL! I’m 5’1.5…basically 5’2, I always round up. And suck at volleyball :)

  • bogofdebt

    Thanks for the link love TL! I’m 5’2″ and like SFL, suck at volleyball!

  • fromshoppingtosaving

    I feel the same about height. All the men in the family are breaking 6 feet and I get a measly 5’3″? Seriously?! To top it all off I have to go to my sister and brother’s volleyball events where everyone is a giant haha!

    Thanks for the link love, can’t wait to read yours on your fave show. I should probably try watching it! I loved all of these reads too. Btw, my last day of FT work is next is an uprising!!
