I was 18 when I asked a girl out — the first date for both of us. We went out once, she moved away, and I never texted back. In hindsight, the flirtation, drama, and heartbreak we went through was senseless. Embarrassed by my foolishness, I wanted to leave it behind and move on.
Lessons from a “local food” scam artist, Rogue One versus The Force Awakens, and a skier’s journey in China. Also, is there another Narnia movie coming soon?
Checking the bees is a delightful chore.
I grab my hive smoker and matches. Last month, I ran out of the small wooden pellets, the fuel for my smoker. Now I use pine needles — thin, dry, and combustible. Great for starting a fire and getting thick, white smoke right away.
Why ideas are overrated, incredible time-lapses of Yosemite, and Star Wars Rebels’ last season. Also, are kids today overprotected?
Social media has changed my life.
It’s an incredible opportunity to connect with new people I would have never met otherwise. To share and learn new ideas and perspectives.
But there is an uncomfortable truth I sense more and more when using social media. A lurking danger behind all the connecting, content-creating, photo-sharing, and influence-growing.
Here are 3 truths every young person should know about social media.
Why imaginations should be exercised, a rant on Myers-Brigg’s personality test, how to find your “self”, and a question on notebooks. Also, you will never watch a TED talk the same way.
You know you play too much frisbee when you break a heavy-duty, official Discraft 175 gram UltraStar — aka., the best frisbee ever.
I started thinking about why I love frisbee so much. Maybe it is how anyone of any age can play. Or the ability to play offense and defense simultaneously. More than anything, I know the reason is more selfish.
Baby hippos, water heater robots, a VR short film, poetry by C. S. Lewis, and more. Also, a cool animation for Jaquelle’s new book!
Welcome to the Compilation – a list of cool content that I find across the interwebs.
Our phones can be technological gifts, empowering us to become more productive, creative, and healthy.
Instead of the technological gifts they should be, our phones often become our chains. Notifications are the stimuli for our brains drooling for social acceptance and connection. Swiping and scrolling are the new dopamine drug, releasing with every flick of the fingers. Welcome to the dark, time-sucking hole called “Your Phone’s Screen”.
Drumroll, please. You – the readers – responded to the latest email newsletter with your favorite songs. This Compilation is a list (in no particular order) of all those amazing song selections. And I even join in the game at the end…
