"We don't save people from us by pretending to be someone we aren't." =) 
Listen to Dear Sugar Radio episodes free, on demand. The universe has good news for the lost, lonely, and heartsick. Dear Sugar — the cult-favorite advice column — is back, but this time speaking directly into your ears. Hosted by the original Sugars, Cheryl Strayed and Steve Almond, the podcast fields all your questions — no matter how deep or dark — and offers radical empathy in return. *New episodes weekly beginning in January.*.

"Pretending you can just decide whether you’ll feel any emotions at all is a geek fallacy stemming from the idea that you should be able to optimize your own brain to not do anything unproductive or unintended."

"Waytz and his colleagues also noted that when people feel they are included in a social circle, it encourages a sense of exclusivity — a feeling of “us versus them.” That increases our tendency to view those on the outside of the circle as somehow less human and less worthy of receiving our charitable attention."
Cell phones connect you socially, but they may also make you less socially minded.

While I stick to policies about cleaning after myself, not leaving dishes in the sink, etc., I've generally not had time for the extras. I definitely appreciate the occasional moral boost. Most every place I've worked has a cleaning crew at least weekly if not daily. Fellow employees reluctant to rely on these services, wanting to clean before the cleaners or too reluctant to just tell them to pay special attention to a change. For myself, I'm paid to be a designer and I've found my employers value as much attention to related duties as possible. What's your take?

I didn't even believe this was real and looked up several news sites. I've seen a few PBS specials and history channel shows talking about how the states got there and missed this entirely. Apparently, archaeologists have knows about the bodies since 1914 and the first pictures emerged in 2012. This new round of photos is incredible tho! 
Find out what archaeologists have known all along: Easter Island's iconic moai heads have bodies, long-buried up to their shoulders.

I wrote a guest blog post and illustration for The Artistic Engineer. Anxiety and stress are our natural responses, we just need to learn to listen to them and channel them into our creativity. Science tells us this. There have been links between stress relief and creativity. Some of you probably think you're not creative, that's just anxiety though. You create your life every day. Thoughts?
You've likely experienced anxiety and stress while trying to be creative. Anxiety is our natural fear response. You've heard of our flight or fight reaction. Flight is our instinct to avoidance, escape, and even procrastination. Fight is directly tackling a problem and anguishing over the ...

If you work second shift or just want a late night snack, its one of the few places in towson that's open that isn't fast food. It's a great idea for those times with a lot of variety. They are open 24 hours. Towson has a lot of better options for fine dining but this isn't meant to be that.
