The Friday Five: Two Songs, a Skinhead, Etsy, & a Quote

[This blog has since moved to bybethanyjae.com. Head on over to check it out, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised… x]

1. ‘Place is you’ by Alexander Fairchild

2. Reformed Skinhead Sheds Racist Past

This article has spread like a wildfire throughout the internet. One of America’s most violent and well-known white supremacists, Bryon Widner, underwent 25 surgeries over 16 month to completely remove all of his racist tattoos. It’s a majorly inspiring story and shows that no matter how much your past has marked you, if you really want to change your future and reputation…. you can.

3. ‘We Don’t Eat’ by James Vincent McMorrow.

4. Etsy

Etsy is a site where you can buy/sell the prettiest handmade or vintage items, arts and craft supplies. I honestly spend a heck lot of time just browsing and oooing and ahhhing over their stuff. You can also sign up for their e-newsletter. There’s a stack of different things you can get emails and notifications about, so it’s totally specific to your interests. Etsy super good, pretty & interesting.

Currently admiring these pretty lanterns...

5. Do more…

Do more than belong: participate.
Do more than care: Help.
Do more than believe: practice.
Do more than be fair: be kind.
Do more than forgive: forget.
Do more than dream: work.” 
– William Arthur Ward
