This week has gone by as quickly as the last. And we’re almost to the end of April. I say this all the time, but where has the time gone?
To help slow down time a bit, I’ve put together a few good reads from the past week. Check it out and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Hey, Internet! I hope you’ve had a fabulous week, despite all of the crazy things going on in the world. Mine was filled with happy hours, some morning runs, and decent weather.
No matter how busy (or not) you weekend is, I’m here to help aid your relaxing (and maybe forget all about this week’s terribleness). Without further ado, here are some sweet reads for you:

If you haven’t realized it already, it’s officially Daylight Savings time. * Tear * We lost an hour! Think of all the things we could have done!
While your biological clock adjusts to the time shift, check out these reads:
As a former (long time) Girl Scout, I loved this post about money-making lessons you can learn from the Girl Scouts. Now only if I had some Caramel Delights!

A while back, I wrote about habits that may be keeping your career back. Brazen Careerist continued this conversation with their post about things that you shouldn’t do if you want to be taken seriously at work.

Formal professional development programs are becoming harder to find, especially after the first year of working at a company. Levo League offers suggestions for creating a DIY Leadership Development Plan. Hey, sometimes you need to take things into your own hands.

Things have been quiet around here this week, but that’s because I’ve been busily working on updating the look and feel of Living in Flux. There are still some small details that need to be updated, but the big stuff is done and shiny and new.
Keep your eye out for additional updates in the coming weeks.
As for reads from the Internet, this was a good week! Here are some good reads to get you through Friday:
