Happy end of finals! Since I only had one written final this week and all week to study for it, I did a good deal of browsing the Internet between studying. Through this browsing I’ve become obsessed with Thought Catalog.
Thought Catalog is an online collection of entertaining, literary, and journalistic essays written by hired staff members and people like you and me who can submit pieces. Think Buzzfeed, but with fewer gifs, less pop culture, and more insight. I’m a fan of Buzzfeed, don’t get me wrong, but Thought Catalog harbors content that is smart, insightful, emotional, and relatable. Their essays are poignant and significant, and I can’t stop reading.
New essays are posted constantly, and there are over 3,000 pages filled with interesting texts to read. A few of my favorites include, “5 Reasons Why We Should Leave Our Smartphones Alone,” “This is What it Means to Have a Woman’s Body,” and “Tell the People You Love That You Love Them.” Since there are so many pages full of thoughts, topics vary from bits of worldly advice, to love testimonials, to funny quotes from popular television shows. There is an essay for everyone!
Since finals are winding down and you’ll most likely have little to do over break, open up your ‘ole computer and check out Thought Catalog. You will not be disappointed.
P.S. Follow them on Twitter because they tweet inspirational quotes, which is always a fun time.
Have a great break, and thanks for reading
