Some reading to start your weekend…

Enjoy your Labor Day/four-day work week? The holiday is a good reminder of what Americans haven’t mastered: taking time off. [via Huff Post]

From Time, a look at a new American Dream: moving away from the suburbs.

Just in time for back-to-school: colleges made for Instagram. Hint: my alma mater makes the list. [via Buzzfeed]

More good information for students: those highly-recommended study methods may not be so effective after all. [via The Washington Post]

Two must-reads from the Poynter Institute on women and journalism: first, The New York Times is lacking when it comes to using female sources in news stories, while two journalists founded a magazine to highlight longform journalism produced by women.

From The Frisky, just a friendly reminder that those before/after fitness pictures you see on Pinterest aren’t exactly the real deal.

I’m sure you’re over the whole Miley Cyrus-VMA debacle, but Kate from Life Sucks In A Strapless Bra has a great post on why MTV needs to step it up.

Any good reads I should catch up on?
