weekly roundup 15 // 2015.

weekend outlook:

hoirong show at the humming tree tonight, certificate and prize distribution at rajajinagar on saturday, and super’s dessert birthday party on sunday. and probably some netflix watching, since i finally got the internets at my house! how about you?

my favourite photo from the week:

loved getting to catch up with tugce while she was in town! bangalore, india. may 2015.

interesting things from around the interwebs:

the world’s smallest luxury home. i’m ready to get one for myself and hit the road.

time profiles the 25 most influential marriages. do you agree with all of them / think they forgot any?

this ted talk from elora hardy has me dreaming of living in a bamboo home.

brenna’s words about not always connecting to a place you’re visiting really resonated with me, especially her words about jaipur. summed up my experience there in one paragraph.

some interesting notes on the scripps national spelling bee. i myself was a spelling bee nerd back in my day, but i was nowhere near as focused as the kids today.

have any of you heard of fangirl quest? i love the idea of travelling the world and sceneframing the sights. let’s be honest: i love the idea of travelling the world and doing just about anything.

the second installment of “shit bangaloreans say” is spot on.

a recent high school graduate in memphis got accepted to all 8 ivy league institutions but had to reject them all because he didn’t receive enough financial aid for any of them to be viable. if that’s not an eye-opening insight into how ridiculously expensive college has become in the states, i don’t know what is.

my friends at jackalope just got named the best brewery in tennessee on the vacation home rentals blog [selected using trip advisor ratings]. so proud of steve and the whole jackalope gang for putting together such a great company.

in case you missed it:

my review of zeitoun, one of the most interesting books i’ve read in a while.
