Hiking is a big thing in Seattle. I especially recommend the Olympic Peninsula. I used to go running around Greenlake. If you are taking a walk around the lake, I suggest you stop by Chocolati to get a nice hot chocolate. Biking on the Burke-Gilman trail is really fun. It goes along the water, and takes you to parks, breweries and beaches.
Art Institute of Chicago is a must see. If you like blues and jazz, there are some very good venues to listen to live music. Green Mill is a classic. If you have time, stop by Fermilab to see their bison. (Fermilab is open to public.)
National Parks in the US are always worth a visit. Especially go out of your way to see the Badlands in South Dakota!

Feedly is an RSS feed reader. I started using it after Google reader died. I will never forgive Google for that.
Sarah Keller, a UW professor, makes everyone in her lab read Women Don’t Ask and Ask For It. They are about learning how to negotiate, especially for women who negotiate a lot less than men. If you feel like you don’t know when/how to negotiate, read these books even if you are not of the female persuasion.
