Paige Keaton54,103I shared this circle earlier and realized it was lacking a lot of women that I have circled. I went through my other circles and found about 300 more just glancing. I have added these women and would like to share it with you.  Be kind to the women I am sharing with you today. I don't share circles often but I hear a lot that G+ is mostly male. I have spent a lot of time finding good women. This is not a porn circle if that is what you are into. This is NOT a HOT WOMEN  circle. This is a circle of real women who have a G+ page just like me.  #circleshare   #circlesharing   #womenofgoogleplus  2013-10-30 17:36:0450023821CC G+

Matt Gibson920,723Ok so we are going to try something different here...As you may have noticed, I am sharing a circle of really cool people and pages for you to add to your circles.  If you want cool content from cool people - add the circle!  It's that simple!  If YOU would like your profile to be shared to almost 1 million people, leave me a comment that tells me a little bit about YOU.  What do you like?  What is your favorite music?  Where do you live?  Let's get to know each other!  What are your social network or website addresses (simply posting a link without telling me about YOU won't make the cut btw)?Here is an example:Hi!  My name is +Matt Gibson and I am an independent artist working on my 1st album!  I like all forms of music but I tend to lean towards metal.  I play guitar, piano, drums and saxophone as well as sing!  You can check out my website at www.crimsonsymphony.com and you can subscribe to my +YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/crimsonsymphonymusicI like books by great authors like Tolkien, +TERRY BROOKS  and Raymond Feist among others.  I read a lot of non-fiction as well on subjects like business, marketing, antiques and tech.I am an amateur gardener and I aspire to own my own beehives.I like reading your posts because you are such a handsome fellow with that long wavy hair and manly beard and....ahem ok you can skip that part unless you really mean it LOL.Now that's not hard is it?  Tell me about yourself and get your profile shared to a million people!  Not a bad deal eh?New and OLD friends can participate but no cheating or dumb comments like "add me" or "hi".  You should all thank +Amanda Blain for giving me this idea to steal for our benefit btw... so let the fun and networking begin!!PS If your comment is really cool you may find yourself in the next Cool People circle and who knows, maybe we will become friends or colleagues? 2013-10-03 00:47:03249731342CC G+

I would say this was a success and now I'm sharing with everyone PUBLIC.  I hope you will share it far and wide too.  #Google+ will only allow me to share 500 at a time, so the list has been broken down in to 4 circles.  Groups 1-4 do not indicate any specific preference to any woman.  I would have shared one massive circle if I was allowed.Fabulous Women on G+ Part 1 Can be found here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/Srvv4xzeuYmFabulous Women on G+ Part 2 Can be found here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/DRFwReXQvbFWhat You Can Do Now------------------------------------* Add these circles to your own circles by pressing the "View shared circle" button below. Then you can either add it to an existing circle of yours or add it as a new circle by giving it a new name. I've labeled mine "Fabulous Women on G+".  (You won't be able to see the circle on mobile or ipad -- you must be on a desktop or laptop.)  See other G+ quirks below.* Once you've added it, I recommend visiting the stream for this circle and browsing through it to see what you find interesting, encouraging, and enlightening. Then, share some love by commenting, +1ing or sharing the posts of your sisters!* Please note, this is a very diverse group of women.  You're likely to see some people in these circles who will see, understand, or experience things differently than you.  They may or may not share your similar interests.  With that in mind, a few suggestions:     -- If you disagree with someone's views, you can very easily remove them from your circle.     -- Please post public vs to these circles directly.  Each of us has separate preferences on notifications and we want to lift one another up, not bog down notifications.  I hope you all see some increased activity, make some new and inspired connections, and lift one another up as we share each other's brilliance.#fabwomenonG+If You Received Notification About this Circle--------------------------------------------------------------------If you're getting a notification about this it's because you've been identified me or others in the circle as a Fabulous Woman on G+ that is Actively posting and Engaging here.  Original Post: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/HHzp7g9aW9tI thought you would want to know that you have been identified as someone the G+ community should connect with!  I don't send out notifications unless it is 100% warranted. G+ Quirky Things to Note----------------------------------------* Google+ has a daily limit of 500 for adding people to your circles. If you haven't added 50 people or more today, you should be fine to add one of the circles daily.* When creating circles, you can only add 500 people a day (new) and that includes moving people around in existing circles.HOWEVER there have been2013-05-17 16:21:40353371128CC G+

so you want to be a writer?

if it doesn't come bursting out of you
in spite of everything,
don't do it.
unless it comes unasked out of your
heart and your mind and your mouth
and your gut,
don't do it.
if you have to sit for hours
staring at your computer screen
or hunched over your
typewriter
searching for words,
don't do it.
if you're doing it for money or
fame,
don't do it.
if you're doing it because you want
women in your bed,
don't do it.
if you have to sit there and
rewrite it again and again,
don't do it.
if it's hard work just thinking about doing it,
don't do it.
if you're trying to write like somebody
else,
forget about it.

[Pharrel breaks down and cries "Happy" tears on Oprah.]

I've had the fattest giggle-inducing, weak-in-the-knees school-girl crush on +Pharrell Williams ever since a decade ago he made skateboarding cool again in the hip-hop community and he threatened to sneak through my window at the end of his 2003 debut single "Frontin'."  **le swoooon**  Needless to say, I almost puked when +Natalie Villalobos handed the phone to him four years ago and he told me he loooooved meeeee.

But then he goes and breaks down crying on Oprah Winfrey after watching a montage of fan-made "Happy" videos, and just...I give up. I totally submit, guise. Done.

So many babies I want to have with this man. So many.

[Saturday Morning Snuggles]

As many of you know, yesterday was some fanciful holiday called Sibling Day, which is really just an excuse for everyone to post pics of themselves as kids. (Whatevs. I'm into it.)

But I didn't post yesterday because you guys, I have the best fucking brother in the world, and I didn't want his awesomeness to get lost in the sea of all the other sibling love.

So here's to you, +Marley Brandenburg. Thanks for always sharing your ninja turtles, LEGOs, and K'NEX with me. And playing faeries with me, Lani and Nicole Clough in the imaginary kingdom we created down by the creek.

Also, thanks for not killing me when, out of envy, I snuck into your room, stole your 5th grade sex-ed assignment in which you had to care for a hard-boiled egg for one week to simulate parenthood, played with it in my room like it was... more »

[Subway Swaddling]

I know most people fiercely hate the claustrophobia-inducing subway trains in the winter, what with all the people smashed up together shoulder-to-shoulder-to-nose-to-shoulder in their puffy cold-weather gear and all (that nose is me, standing tiny at just under 5'1"), but personally, I found it deeply comforting. The feeling of being enveloped on all sides by fluffy down and vintage wool, a cushioned layer of warmth insulating me from the outside world, gave me a sense of serene safety and tranquility. I often closed my eyes and imagined the swaying of the train to be that of my mother's arms, the pressing in of coats and scarves around my body like an urban quilt swaddling me, offering me comfort and security as its tight embrace literally held me upright through the long, harsh winter. 

And a quiet would fall over the train as it sped... more »

As seen on +Behance: Freddy, a leading producer of Italian sports and dance wear, presents a graphical project to advertise free ballet, break and tap dance workshops held by the best choreographers in Italy and worldwide.

A drawing represents the imaginary lines and curves traced by the body during the performance, but influenced and interpreted in various points by the Freddy Slounge Way, to create a new, personal dynamism.

[On to my next big adventure! Fashion world, here I come!]

When I was a little girl, I couldn't leave the house if my dress didn't "twirl right." I wasn't comfortable going to bed with uncoordinated PJs. My mother, frustrated with my time-consuming obsession with getting my outfits just right, would often shriek, "NOT EVERY DAY HAS TO BE A FASHION SHOW, ALIDA." (What...? I don't...I don't understand.)

So it's with great enjoyment and feelings of vindication that today I announce my acceptance of the position of Director of Digital Strategy and Social Media for esteemed fashion designer +Cynthia Rowley. I couldn't be more thrilled to join their team and look forward to demonstrating that why, yes, Mother, every day can be a fashion show. And you can get paid to do it. ;)

[Feel-Good Friday: Little girl's reaction to discovering rain for the first time is absolutely priceless.]

What a whimsical moment to witness! These things we take for granted, like water falling playfully from the sky, are made anew by experiencing them through the eyes of a child. Kids can teach us so much, but especially about slowing down enough to appreciate all the daily wonders around us we forget to notice. This is a great reminder of that.

I love the way she keeps turning around to her family with wide eyes, as if to say, "Are you seeing this?! This is incredible! Come out here and enjoy!"

I'm not a parent yet, but I imagine these types of moments happen often. I'd love to hear your stories!

I think we've established by now that I love New York. (Duh.) I also love fashion, cool tech gadgets, and other whimsical products. In addition, I'm a big supporter of sustainable, ethical companies that embrace corporate responsibility. Oh, and I adore film, too.

All good things in their own right, sure, but what happens when you combine each of these to create a compelling narrative that invites you into an interactive shopping experience? Huh.

[Feel-Good Friday: Here's how to kick ass in your 30's.]

“Unless you are already dead — mentally, emotionally, and socially — you cannot anticipate your life 5 years into the future. It will not develop as you expect. So just stop it. Stop assuming you can plan far ahead, stop obsessing about what is happening right now because it will change anyway, and get over the control issue about your life’s direction. Fortunately, because this is true, you can take even more chances and not lose anything; you cannot lose what you never had. Besides, most feelings of loss are in your mind anyway – few matter in the long term.”

Form+Function Philosophy

I've been trying to live by this quote since I came across it on Pinterest a year ago. In August, my second cross-country move in just three years (SF --> NY --> SF --> NY) gave me particular opportunity to reflect on this, and more painfully, exercise it. (Do I really need this ceramic heart filled with potpourri that I've had since I was eight? OF COURSE! Wait, no.) I had to remain vigilant for fear of letting slip past any one of my 63,932 incense holders I managed to amass in my teenage years.  (Oh, Nag Champa.) Yard-salers, rejoice.

[On perfectionism, the fear of failure, and preservation of self.]

"A thing about me: I really, really don’t like to fail. I’d rather not try and never know than try and fail – a terrible attitude, possibly a product of my aggressively encouraging middle-class American upbringing: you can be anything you want if you just put your mind to it! 

"But I have a very active imagination, and I like telling myself stories. I like thinking, for instance, that maybe I could have developed into a decent runner if I hadn’t quit the track team halfway through my first season in high school. Maybe the only reason I didn’t go to Harvard is because I didn’t apply. Maybe the only reason I’m not an award-winning, critically-acclaimed, bestselling author is because I didn’t write the book I really wanted to write.

[Happy Six-Month Anniversary, New York.]

“Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That's relativity.”

Sunday was my six-month anniversary with New York. If time flies when you're having fun, add love to the mix and you begin to defy the laws of physics. It's unbelievable that it's already been half a year here. And boy to do I love this city.

In the days leading up to my anniversary, I kept reminding myself to plan something to celebrate, but in a flurry of activity typical of New York, by the time Sunday came, not only had I not arranged for anything, the significance of the day had completely slipped my mind.

So rather than something ceremoniously special, in my forgetting, I just went to brunch with some new friends. As it so happens, somenew... more »

"While I was sitting one night with a poet friend watching a great opera performed in a tent under arc lights, the poet took my arm and pointed silently. Far up, blundering out of the night, a huge Cecropia moth swept past from light to light over the posturings of the actors. 'He doesn’t know,' my friend whispered excitedly. 'He’s passing through an alien universe brightly lit but invisible to him. He’s in another play; he doesn’t see us. He doesn’t know. Maybe it’s happening right now to us.'”

Yes, she made that dress herself. I KNOW, GUISE. I KNOW.

During my month-long social-media timeout (I know, I know, you all are dying for the full report on how that went, and I will post it soon, promise!), I discovered this incredible story about a young girl designing dresses for herself out of paper: http://huff.to/1ib3SYc. I couldn't wait to share it with you noodles, but of course it got a bit buried in all the other things I wanted to catch up on here. Oof!

Wow. I was giggling and biting my lower lip from start to finish, completely captivated. 

From their first nervous feet shuffles, awkward approaches, and soft, hesitant grazing of faces, all the way through the building passion, twisted up embraces, and complete loss of time and space as they got lost in each other, then finally to the sweet bashful laughter as they broke apart and collected themselves, embarrassed and unsure of how to cradle the newly birthed intimacy between them.

What a glorious, delicious experiment. <3

[Mini-Memoirs: I wanted teardrops on my chest, not my pillow.]

I stood in the shower and prepared myself for my regular ritual, angling my body to face the sunlight in slight parallel, illuminating the silhouette of my pubescent figure against the plastic wall. I lightly pressed my index finger into the middle of my burgeoning breasts, forcing them into the perfect, perky circle I knew my anatomy was supposed to mimic. I stood for a moment, shifting side to side with my head tilted down, admiring the rounded figure that magazines and movies told me most other women had. But knowing my non-invasive alteration was transient, I released my finger with a defeated sigh, my breasts and spirits dropping in tandem. 

Later that year I would repeat this routine while standing in my mother's living room in my new boy-short bikini, tears gushing from my eyes, wetting my bathing suit... more »

[Feel-Good Friday: Elderly lady adopts stray. Inseparable friendship begins. Adorableness never ends.]

Three of the cutest things combine to create one mega-Voltron of cuteness: cats, old ladies, and Japanese culture: http://bit.ly/1k0weVl

"Misao lives a rural life outside the city in Japan. One day, she found a stray cat, took her in, and named him Fukumaru. They have been inseparable ever since, and the photos are beyond heart-warming."

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: As threatened, ( <wink>) I'm taking a break from all social media (other than the professional accounts I manage) for the entire month of February.


It's part of several 30-day goals I'm tackling for 2014 (see: http://bit.ly/1ii5oHg). I love the idea of doing mini-new-year-resolutions as a sort of experiment (less pressure) rather than trying to make one drastic change for the entire year, or longer. As this TED talk points out (http://bit.ly/1aO0WQZ), some of them are likely to stick anyway. ;) 

Just wanted to give a heads up, since I know many people rely on social media for direct contact. So don't be miffed or alarmed if I don't respond to tags or messages. I'm just not checking. :)

Hope you all have a lovely Valentine's Day, President's Day, Groundhog's Day, Black History Month, and... more »

"Alida, you seem to belong as a character in a coming-of-age movie about a ragtag group of teenagers. You're the one that the main character falls in love with, the one that challenges him, and pushes him to ultimately grow and become a better person. 

"And then you probably lose your virginity."

Thanks, +Jon Levy, for one of the most memorable and unexpected description of me. I'll take it.  :)

In the words of +Natalie Villalobos, "All growns up."

World, you've been put on notice. I'm comin' to getchaaaaa. (Full version here: http://bit.ly/1jLg7KD. Posting because I feel terrible that Google had to crop Daniel D'Ottavio's artistic composition, and I would hate for his work to be misrepresented!)

[You know you work at a startup when...]

Neighbor office dude comes in. "Did you guys get any of our mail?"

Coworker, with a hint of haughty impatience: "No. Gmail's down." 

Neighbor office dude: "No...our mail. Did the mailman come."

In medical school, we only had four hours of lecture on nutrition, and that was only because a group of integrative-medicine-oriented students in the class a few years ahead of me fought for it.

Your assumption is correct. There are zero hours of legally-required nutrition training for future doctors.
