Friday Favorites: Anxiety, Turkish Delight, Niche Quizzes, and a Pep Talk

This week has been a whirlwind! I’m exhausted! But I feel like I can’t let myself be exhausted because the meet-up officially starts tonight. I’ve got to rally myself and make it through just a few more days. I think once everyone is here and things start swinging, I’ll find my second wind and have a great weekend.

Here are some interesting links I came across this week:

I’m not sure if I could ever get to a point where I love my anxiety, but this article was really thought-provoking: Learning to Love My Anxiety by Laura Turner.

If you’ve read The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe and then tried Turkish Delight because of the book.. this article may shed some light on why Edmund sold his family out for such a disappointing dessert: Why Was Turkish Delight C.S. Lewis’s Guilty Pleasure?

Maybe like 2 of you will be into this (I realize this is super niche), but this Taylor Swift or Rainbow Rowell quiz made me laugh! I got 12/15.

This pep talk from Kirby last week was exactly what I needed to hear at that time, and it’s stuck in my mind ever since: “Every situation has an AND. There’s good and bad everywhere. It’s not just black and white.”

Have a good weekend, friends!

  1. When I was in 6th grade, our Language Arts teacher got Turkish Delight so we could taste it while reading the book. I didn’t like it!!! Interesting article about why Edmond sold his siblings out for it, but it does make some sense. I supposed exported items were difficult to attain in WWII.

    I got 9 right on the quiz, but considering I only read one Rainbow Rowell book and never listened to T. Swift, I think that I am a good guesser.
