This is based on the book The Elegance of the Hedgehog. I loved the film. It’s in French, so you have to be able to watch the screen the whole time. (By the way, I’m obsessed with foreign films, so if you have any suggestions, they’re greatly appreciated!) I was ready to pack my bags, wear striped shirts, and live in a cute little Parisian flat. I thought the movie was beautifully done and the characters were casted perfectly.
I obviously love giving book recommendations, but I thought I’d share some of the things that I’ve watched recently. When I’m feeling lonely in my apartment, or I’m doing something boring (like folding laundry) I always have something playing in the background.
I saw a bunch of my friends (hey Alix!) discussing this Ted Talk on Twitter earlier this week. I love Ted Talks. I used to try to watch one a day and then it moved to one a week, and now I just watch them as they come recommended. This is a longer Ted Talk, but totally worth it. It’s super interesting and something that I definitely could relate to. (I mean, I often feel like I’m “faking it” and that I feel like a fraud just waiting for sometime to find me out!) The speech is funny, but it’s also a little emotional. I definitely teared up towards the end.
(TWO) The Hedgehog
(Three) Office Hours with Shama Kabani
I get asked all the time about how to build a personal brand, Shama packed tons of tips into the thirty minute video. I was blown away at how comprehensive she was! This is a great video for anyone interested in social media, bloggers, and marketing majors. But frankly, I think everyone can take something away from the Office Hours because she gives tips on how to improve your digital footprint!
What have you been watching lately? Any must-see Ted Talks, Youtube videos, or movies?
