Here we are again, folks: it’s Friday. This was my first full week of school after a series of shortened weeks, and it was nice to have some sense of a normal routine back. That said, I’m certainly glad its the weekend, and I’m looking forward to a (somewhat) equal balance of work and play. So far, I’ve got an afternoon in the city planned for tomorrow, and hopefully some fun in the kitchen on tap for Sunday. I’m not quite sure what I’ll be making yet, but be sure to be on the look out for some recipe posts in the coming weeks!

To start your weekend off on an informative note, here’s a look back at what I read this week:

Tuesday (April 14) was Equal Pay Day! There were lots of articles tackling the issue floating around cyberspace, but it was Ann Friedman’s piece for The New York Times’ The Cut that resonated with me the most.

Hashtags are great for raising awareness (#ALSIceBucketChallenge, anyone?), but can they really inspire significant change? The Guardian offers its take on the topic here.

At PS244 in Queens, the cafeteria is 100% vegetarian and students are not allowed to bring in chips, candy, or soda. And guess what? They’re doing pretty darn good.

With my junior year almost upon me, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking freaking out over starting the college search. Thankfully, my dad forwarded me this New York Times article, which is a must-read for high schoolers everywhere.

The gals at goop attempted a challenge faced by millions of underprivilged families: feeding their loved ones with only $29 to spend. Here’s how it went.

With that, happy freaking weekend, everyone! Be sure to check back in on  Monday.
