Hi friend!

Here's something for you to...

1) watch.

Is She Into You?


A scarily accurate tool for guys to figure out whether or not a female is into them.

2) read.

Why Parents Need to Let Their Children Fail


A short and refreshing piece by Jessica Lahey.

My favorite bit:

Parents guilty of this kind of overparenting 'take their child's perception as truth, regardless of the facts,' and are 'quick to believe their child over the adult and deny the possibility that their child was at fault or would even do something of that nature.'

3) use.

Chemex Pour-Over Glass Coffeemaker


No more K-cups. You're welcome, Joe Biden.

4) listen to.

The Most Misunderstood Songs in Music History


Fun and informative.

Some of my blogs.

My first chess tournament


I won a trophy

How it went.

I'm sad and I don't know why

On the winter/grey feeling.

I deleted email from my phone

And how it's affected me.

-Michael Neill

“I dread success. To have succeeded is to have finished one’s business on earth, like the male spider, who is killed by the female the moment he has succeeded in courtship. I like a state of continual becoming, with a goal in front and not behind.”

-George Bernard Shaw

“I don’t think so…slash know at all.”
