Lincoln Up #35 [The Best I’ve Read This Week]

Lincoln Up

Welcome to this week’s edition of Lincoln Up! There are come great articles to round out the week. I’m loving all the attention to female athletes, and I’m not just referencing the World Cup (GO LADIES!). Serena Williams is the best female tennis player in the world because of her huge muscles and thick frame. The NY Times article found below explains the body image issues faced by other tennis players. They sometimes sacrifice strength for femininity. This is interesting. What do you think?

How You Imagined Being An Adult As A Child :: I still have to remind myself I’m a grown up. Being an adult is so much better than I imagined!



  1. Ohhh my goodness the “Awkward Situations” are so funny and so true! I feel like the dentist one really applies to me. And the fart one.
    I really liked the “What Meat Eaters Get Wrong” article, too.
    Thanks for sharing!

      • Hahahaha so true. I just think the technicians must realize that we can’t talk to them when their hands are in our mouths! Slash you’re past small talk with someone after they put their hand in your mouth.
        Gahhhh dentists. At least I get to watch TV on the ceiling when I go for my annual check-up!
