The weekend is already upon us. The past five days have flown by for me. Although it feels like I haven't been doing much, I have been quite busy finishing unpacking and reorganizing my space, performing odd jobs about the house, catching up with old friends, crafting a resume and applying for jobs. Oh, the joys of the unemployed!
I don't have any particularly exciting plans for the weekend. So far I have taken the dogs on a walk in drizzly weather (I almost felt like I was back in England again) and will soon be watching a movie while digging into some dessert. What will you be doing? I have also gathered a few fun links to share that I stumbled upon during the week.
A great article from Penguin Books about falling in love with Dickens through David Copperfield. I completely related to the writer's Dickensian skepticism. (By the way, I love the caricature of Charlie pictured above. It just kills me.)
Follow in Emma Woodhouse's footsteps by taking a virtual tour around Box Hill.
A thought-provoking piece concerning Downton Abbey and domestic service from OUP.
Three women win the Nobel Peace Prize. Let's hear it for the girls!
