Oh hey, look, another New York Times link: the Life, Interrupted series by Suleika Jaouad is an absolute must-read. The author is a woman in her twenties with cancer. All of her columns are good, but the first one especially captures the unique injustice of being a young person with an incapacitating, life-threatening illness. I am so rooting for this girl to get healthy. Also, she seems really cool and I want to be friends with her.
