Friday Faves!

Teen Choice Awards 2013 - ShowHappy Friday!

The Choices Magazine/Teenbeing team has rounded up our picks for the best of this week’s web. Enjoy!

1. Ashton Kutcher’s amazing and inspirational speech at the Teen Choice awards. Who knew he was so deep?

2.  And this graduation speech given by writer George Saunders at Syracuse University is full of great advice—even if you’re not graduating!

3. OMG! The US Department of Agriculture has released an amazing infographic about the costs of raising a child. If you have a teen, you’ve probably noticed that kids are a pricey proposition. But it might be a good idea to share this with your teens.

4. We loved (and got a little weepy over) this mom’s reflection on her 14-year-old daughter’s first day of high school—it’s never easy to let go!

5. Finally! Photoshop is being put to good use—well, sort of. Scroll through these hilarious portraits of celebrities posed as “normal” people.
