For some, Wednesdays are a hurdle; for others, a milestone. For me, it means my vacation is halfway over and I am not having it. Not one bit.

Taking some time off hasn't stopped me from finding links for you, though:

- The first female mathematician to receive the National Medal of Science, Catherine S. Morawetz, was what most would describe as a badass. (The Lily)

- Friends pay tribute to stuntwoman Joi 'S.J.' Harris, who died during production on Deadpool 2. (Variety)

- This season, Game of Thrones is mostly resorting to fast travel options and it's starting to get annoying. (USA Today)

- Claire Temple is currently poised to smash the "Marvel girlfriends" trope, thank goodness. (Inverse)
