All my favourite things from 2017: articles, podcasts, videos and more

Listicle-ception! In 2017 I changed a lot as a human being, and I give many thanks to the stuff mentioned in these lists.

FAVOURITE ARTICLES OF 2017

  1. What’s The Difference Between Being an Alcoholic and Just Really, Really Liking to Drink?
  2. 3 ways to Turn your Jealousy into Motivation
  3. How to be a cool, chill girl who is Cool and Chill
  4.  This Is What Self-Care REALLY Means, Because It’s Not All Salt Baths And Chocolate Cake
  5. Loving yourself is really f***king hard: here’s how to do it

FAVOURITE PODCASTS OF 2017

How I Built This

My favourite episodes: Whitney Wolfe (who built Bumble) and the episode about how Buzzfeed came about. Not shockingly, before both of these people went on to built their own amazing  things, they worked on other peoples’ amazing things.

Adult Sh1t

Two co-workers from Buzzfeed get into every topic imaginable that you and your female best friend talk about. I learned so much words cannot even express. Not safe for work.

Stuff Mom Never Told You (aka SMNTY)

At 24, I’m only now truly diving into learning about the ins and outs of  intersectional feminism, and this podcast does such a good job of covering an interesting range of topics. If you’re millennial and your mom didn’t teach you how to be a badass feminist, this is a good place to get started 😉

The Tim Ferris Show

The episode with Brené Brown, best selling author and researcher, is all you ever need to listen to (linked above). I’m pretty sure I can thank her for spurring my quarter life crisis.

FAVOURITE ALBUMS THAT CAME OUT IN 2017

I acknowledge this is a weird list. While there was some really great music in 2017, being able to listen to something front to back is tough.

  1. 4:44 – Jay Z
  2. A Moment Apart – Odesza
  3. Younger Now – Miley Cyrus
  4. GEMINI – Macklemore

FAVOURITE SELF-HELP BOOKS I READ IN 2017

  1. You are a Badass
  2. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck
  3. The Happiness Project
  4. Daring Greatly

FAVOURITE YOUTUBE VIDEOS I DISCOVERED IN 2017

What can I say, I’m obsessed with Youtube.
