Weekly Review #76: Professional email gifs, DIY resumes, and loving yourself

Tech:

Funny Bizz teaches you you to use humor to stand out in business. Reply with gifs! It’s all professional these days.

Rhymeo is an app that teaches you how to freestyle rap, Tindergenius A/B tests your tinder photos, LaunchARestaurant aims to turn around that sordid bankrupt new restaurant statistic, and HikeWith.me finds people near you to go hiking.

This DIY Airbnb resume is super impressive – especially because she isn’t even a designer – she just hustled her way into making the stats and had a friend make it pretty. Kind of lame that it took a Queen to tweet it for them to pay attention though :/.

The Tools Product Hunt used to build their community is a good rundown of free tools, and this mysterious site tells you top and trending keywords in multilingual app stores.

Lifehacks

How to buy your way onto NYT bestseller list is a look into the underbelly of the storied list and a reminder that everything has a price.

Fun:

Cold weather makes you more productive. For real.

Video of an Everest Avalanche is terrifying and sudden.

Not exactly fun, but this sobering report on the 1.5 million missing black men in America is a slap in the face and a worthy read.

This wonderful poem: Love After Love by Derek Walcott:

The time will come
when, with elation
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror
and each will smile at the other’s welcome,

and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

all your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,

the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.
