Untranslatable words.“Something is always lost in translation because words are more than their literal meanings. They carry history, tradition, experience, and identity. […] Even if languages seem to have roughly equivalent words […] translators have long argued that something precious is always lost in the act of translation.” ← I definitely agree with this so much. Switching between two languages on a daily basis – English and German – I experience this all the time.

Share a good link with me in the comments!

  1. Oooh these are so fun! I love the twitter thread of good advice. Excellent options!

  2. I love chia seeds and nutritional yeast!
    I really enjoyed the Every Quarter Counts post, and I’ve dabbled in different lace tying methods but the ones listed in the link are a step above! So many tailored choices.

  3. I bought some nutritional yeast because it’s a thing and I put it on popcorn and it’s messy and tasteless? I need nutritional yeast guidance.

  4. I’ve been arguing with my family for *years* over bulk-buying. Thank you for sharing the link – maybe they’ll listen to Lifehacker, if not me.

  5. I need to come back to your links and read some of what you are sharing when I have more time! But I know without reading the pronating article that I am a supinator – I majorly underpronate because of my ridiculously high arches! A mom at school told me to skip the middle holes when lacing my running shoes because it will be more comfortable for my feet since lacing that hole puts more pressure on the high part of our foot. So I am going to try that. I had to sadly switch running shoes. I had ran in Mizuno Wave Riders for probably 14 years but the pair I just bought made my feet hurt SO BAD. So now I am running in Hokas. Hopefully I like them. So far, so good, though!

  6. Love your link lists – so nicely curated and relevant. :) I bought chia seeds but the idea of that chia “pudding” grosses me out. Any ideas?
    I’ve seen that Twitter thread before – it’s a good one, though, always worth revisiting.
    And that lentil-mushroom stew sounds wonderful. I loooove lentils!

    1. I know, I was intimidated by chia seeds too and I don’t eat them as “chia pudding”. I add them to oatmeal and baked goods and hardly notice them there.
