064. The random five.

Sorry, this picture has absolutely nothing to do with the list below! I just thought of including this as it has a great way of making me feel energized. 


As I've mentioned in my previous post, I was holed up at home because of asthma. But it wasn't such a lonely convalescence as there were plenty of things to watch (on my phone), and stuff to read. A clue: some vlogs, a book, and a few articles. These links are cited without any order of preference.


I've come across this vlog through some YouTube video that the University of Oxford has posted for the benefit of international students. (You never know--a girl can dream!) This video, for some reason, was next in line for my viewing so I also checked it out too. End result: I've began to watch Simon's older videos. 



If you've watched the video above, then you would have heard of this article being mentioned. This an article about the struggling students who need scientific papers but have to pay a huge amount of money just to obtain them? Who made it possible? So what happens next? The article is pretty interesting--an eye-opener in fact!




Meet the Michalaks--Stef, Hannah, and their adorable toddler Grayson. They are a young family living in London--and their weekly vlogs are as real as they get. I discovered their YouTube channel by accident, through this blog. Since then, I have looked forward to watching their vlogs every Sunday. Better late than never, I say. ;)



This is one of the advantages of subscribing in Ebook Bub. If you're lucky--you will find a book that is free! :) I've found this book deal from one of their emails to me--and I got it without paying for anything at all. I'll have a review lined up! 



If there is one word to describe The Salty Sea Blog's entries, it's ethereal.  Someone must have sprinkled some fairy dust into Sarah's entries, because there is some kind of magic whenever one reads her blog. And it's not just me, everyone else who has read The Salty Sea Blog feels the same way too! This linked post, in particular, is one of my favourites. (She had a new post that week I was holed up, but I kept coming back to this entry.)



Hope you enjoy checking these links out whenever you can! :) How about you? What do you enjoy watching or reading online? :)
