Mulan - Possibly a comletely inappropriate way to acknowledge the Chinese new year. But it did re-enforce my inkling that Disney Princesses are a tough bunch. I loved Brave, not just for its accurate mossy landscapes, but because Merida was the strongest Disney lady yet. I recently read that the Disney princesses of my era (Ariel, Jasmine, Belle) are actually just as strong-willed, contrary to popular stereotype.
I can't remember the article that I read, but instead here's a pinterest pin and a video from Disney that highlights the point. Do you agree?
Will private sales create a public menace? - To a Brit like me, Pennsylvanian liquor licensing is utterly baffling. For a capitalist country to have a governmental alcohol market struck me as very strange. Currently Liquor can only be purchased from state owned stores, but this will soon change and alcohol sales could soon be privatized.
NJ issues first distilling license since 1933 - This is similarly baffling. The State of New Jersey will soon be producing rum!
Moving country has allowed me time to reflect on my career to date and brush up skills. I've been applying for jobs and internships as well as trying to network online and offline. This blog post and the comments on it emphasizes that if interning is the key to meet and prove to US employers that I'm the super-human they need, then I should go for it.
